The Big Shim

This little piece of black rubber is called a shim.  Shims are used as levelers between the body and the frame of Model A's. 

It took 12 shims to get Daisy's body level on her frame.

It also took lots of time and lots of hard work on Roger and Dave's part.  But once they got finished, a big, important step of Daisy's restoration was complete. 

Here's how it was done.........
