If you just focus on the smallest details, you never get the big picture right.

The Koln column from Belgium arrived last week.  It's in about the same condition that I expected - so it was nice to not be unpleasantly surprised.

 The contact plate is in okay shape but I think I'm going to replace it anyway since I'll have to take it apart to sand it down for paint.

The spring is missing from the contact plate but that'll get addressed by being replaced completely.
The clip that holds the turn signal arm to the body was missing (I knew this in advance) but I've sourced another one.

There is physical damage to the turn signal arm itself (I didn't know this in advance) but since it needs to be replaced, not really a big deal.
Then we come to the 'fun' part:  The spring and end cap pieces are missing - not a big deal since I have spares.

In other news - I'm now without ads in the classifieds because I took them all down.  One less distraction.

I have other parts inbound and after they arrive, there won't be much coming in for a while as I sort through what I've got and where the projects need attention.

There's one more trip to chrome and possibly one or two more trips to powder coating before I can safely consider it 'mostly done' - it'll be 'completely done' when both cars are complete and the list of 'things to do' is blank.
