Default Report from the shop, some more bling-bling

While all my hot rod friends were at the Puyallup swap meet this weekend, buying '32 grille shells for $50.00 etc, I was slaving away in the shop.

While I still am having some carb issues, I just wanted to hang some more vintage bling-bling, the most satisfying part of any build, in my humble opinion. Well, that, and the first test drive !

Anyway, I straightened and polished the 75 year old head lights to the best of my ability, and after installing the grille shell, spreader bar, cowl band a more complete look is emerging:













Still missing glass, and steering column, that's next...then roof insert...

Looks real good Rolf. I don't know anyone who walked with 50.00 32 shell. The fellas said there wasn't much there....

How's the shop coming?
