Love those hide-aways. Your car looks great. I did the same as you on my 65 and cut a coil before installing new Moogs. Not a fun job. I had the exact same fears when compressing the springs with an impact. You feel like you could lose a hand if this thing explodes.
Yours sits perfectly level now, just like mine. Don't expect it to settle much. You'll be glad you cut that coil. Mine was rock hard before, with full springs. The opposite or yours when it was way low. You sound like me, hoping it will lower just a little more. They ride great in the middle like they are.
Cool looking car man. Good luck.
