^ Thanks guys! I emailed Doc yesterday so we'll see what he says. I don't mind it it's a bit pricey - I already spent more on this body than probably anyone has spent on a fastback just because it was the one I owned so long ago and it's always fun to get an old gun back. This one will be a keeper forever so I'll be glad to get it back to 100% and enjoy it. I'll always gladly pay for quality work. I will also make a thread to document the restoration process.

Oddly enough, I have an older 'Cocker with a similar hole in about the same spot.
On mine, it was to access a lock screw on the hammer lug.

So you had to go in from the side to back off the set screw before going down from the top to adjust the lug for timing, then lock the lug in place by going in the side to tighten the set screw.

Very interesting... the design makes sense. I'll have to take a close look once it gets here. What's strange though is that as far as I know that marker has had an MQ valve in all it's life. A previous owner drilled the body on the underside as well to attach a dye UL frame on there
Some people should stay far, far away from power tools lol. No worries though, I'll get it brought back to 100% soon enough.

If you're good with tools, Doc actually did a writeup on fixing bad eye holes. Basically, you screw in an aluminum screw with permanent thread locker, then very carefully file it flush.
