    1 year I haven't posted, sorry but I was working on many other projects as well as flathead engines..

    The body came back from sand blasting, and more work appear... So I guess I will have to work a lot to get that body straight and painted.

    @CheatersPete car looks great, do you have any pictures of that steering set up and how you mounted it? It's a slick set up, how do you like it on your 32, does it work alright?

    Wow! Love the color choice with the black frame and motor. Chrome wheels finish it off.
    Great job.
     
  15. I cannot believe that crusty, rusty, poorly patched , 4-door roof car I sold you (not even including the crazy way you finally got it) could look that good! Unreal!

    Wow, what a task! Great stance and awesome workmanship. It´s pretty emotional to see the body back in primer, smooth as glass, right before paint, after all those hours of replacing metal , rot and bad repairs. I went through this with my 34 the last couple of years...still not sure if I need that kind of challenge again, hahahaha

    Baumi, I agree, tons of hours spent, result is satisfying though
