    What i think is so cool is that they even finished the ends of the shackles. Times and tools were totally different but they still took the time to put a nice radius on the end.

    Just flat out cool. Can't wait to see more!

    Thanks guys. Not much happening with this one right now, just collecting parts. I did manage to get the motor running so with a little work I should be able to get it driving. The plan is just to drive it the way it is for a while then eventually do a full restoration!
