Sometimes, the simplest of things is not. The installation of a “Church Key” holder should take all of 30 seconds. Unscrew an upholstery screw, put holder on, replace screw. That’s it. Not this time. The interior nose panel did not have a hole or a screw in the middle position, so it was off with the panel to take a measurement and then make a hole with the punch. Then find another upholstery screw. I know that I have a bunch of these somewhere, but they proved elusive. I finally settled for moving the upper screw to the middle for the holder, and the put a stainless screw and washer back up top. A very small but classic example of why vintage iron often demands more time and effort.
