January 2008: The car has been total repainted and inside upholstery.  New Cooper tires, whitewalls 2-1/4 inch.  29,000 miles.

September 2009: The car is restored.  New carpet and all interior upholstery, many upgraded chrome parts on dash from other Edsel, new rubber around all windows front and back.  Some chrome on the car is slightly pitted but in good condition.  New compressor for the air conditioner.  Had to put an extra filter between the compressor and expansive valve.  Also put a white vinyl top on the car.
The car was completely soda blasted to take off all the paint, but it didn't hurt the chrome or glass.  Did a very good job in taking off the paint.  After paint was removed all that was required was to prime and paint.  No sanding and priming then sanding again.
The compressor is from a 2006 Ford truck (or close to that year).  Had a hard time coming up with the original color.  We finally settled on Mazda Bronze, which is as close as we could come according to the paint company.  It has wond several trophies so far this year, including a Best of Show.
