      So far I have concentrated my efforts (&$) on the mechanicals. Plugs, wires, points, vacuum advance, engine oil, oil bath, new 1 barrel carb (2nd time was the charm), fuel filter, wiring (some of it), Columbia overdrive unit, all front suspension and steering bushings, broke some bushings over railroad tracks so got new springs and spacers, 2 shocks, brakes were OK!, parking brake cable adjusted. restoration of original front seat springs, stuffing and vinyl, restored original spare tire compartment in seat (with relocation of original spare), then covered seat surfaces with custom plaid seat cover to sit on. Tracked down some Ash wood and made piece of wood that was missing to match the grain. Restored a Firestone heater (resto-modded). She is now ready to roll but COVID-19 arrived! Needs new tires and a rear spare if I want to go on a tour - which I do. Next up restore & PROTECT THE WOOD! Wood is 90% original and has "patina." At least you can tell is real wood that way.

      Oh yeah, some exhaust pipe sections had to be replaced too. Put on a period style chrome exhaust tip, which had to be customized with a dog license tag of all things - Hey, it was the right size to fill the hole and the copper metal looks complimentary.
