    Monday up date again , things are getting very close , in the past week , I finished up the rest of the wiring , all the lights and signals work ,finished the flip out talelight assaembly , the wagon is ready for inspection , except for the breaks , im waiting on the master cylinder to get back from being sleaved down , and we should be good to go , there still a lot of little things that need to be finished , but im steady working my way threw them .

    oh ya , also this past week I came across some of Ben McKee amazing art work while surfing the web , he goes by typical on here, ive been wanting to have some t shirts made up for some time now but just never got around to it and didn't know what I wanted , so I commissioned him to draw up my motor , and within less than 24 hours this what he had , its not finished yet, but you get the idea .

    I think it will be pretty cool t shirt design once its done

    I haven't been back to this thread in a while but every time I look I am amazed at the level of workmanship on this car! Plus I love wagons, so its a win win for me! Can't wait to see this car on the road somewhere.

    thanks for the reply I just got the SPW universal wiper system and was looking for a place to mount the motor assembly. Not much room under the dash for me. Where did you mount your motor assembly?

    Thanks again. You have such good photo's, you wouldn't happen to have a photo of where you mounted the windshield motor assembly? If so please post it for me. I was thinking of mounting mine in the side panel area. There is a cavity large enough there but feeding the drive cable up to the vent air box won't be easy.

    Thanks for showing the short version Cody, the two shots from the start in WY are a great reminder just how far you have come. When did you get the car?

    Hey Cody, that is one sweet ride!
    I may have missed it on the way through, but what are you using for air filter/filters? I'm hoping for a really slick hand fabbed unit (perhaps with scaled down ribs to match the roof & hood?).
    Cheers,
    Arnold.

    Glad to see the journey of your build is almost over. Now I'm stoked to see you start a new chapter of riding it to shows, winning awards and being on magazine covers!

    It might have been , , I got it from Wyoming Classic cars , they had a lot of cars, I bought it without actually seeing it in person , Just from pictures off there site , I thought I got a decent deal , everything was there , just a lot of rust ,

    No update tonight , I spent today fixing paint issues and chips , and needless to say some of it came out nice and some of it I have to repaint it again , it never senses to fail when it comes to paint there's alway something stupid that happens
