We've got more pictures today of the restoration of '66 Shelby #33 as Jeremy at Maple Hill Restoration continues to make great progress. Even though we had lots of  components restored and ready to go on, the research and parts collection continues!

In this series, we have the back end assembled with the trunk lid and bumper, the sealer applied on the firewall, the engine and transmission installed, and more!

As always, continue to scroll down the post to read more and click on the pictures to see larger versions.

After careful study of the pictures before disassembly, lots of spraying of test patterns, and observations of cars built around the same time period, Jeremy was able to really nail the sealer for the firewall.
