    Headliner is in. The back will be stretched and fastened once the body is back on since the rear bar will press against the headliner.

    Fred Hurst was a pretty famous drag racer. Did you ever have the pleasure to run him Gene?

    This is my friend Greg Shreffler, He put the finishing touch polishing the mag wheels and buying a new pair of
    front tires installed and balanced. What a good friend, I am truly Blessed.
    Also thanks to Kevin Perry (Kiwi Kev)
    for giving and sending me the Original American caps for the wheels. [​IMG]

    Gene, the chassis alone is looking good with the wheels and tires on. I really like that blue. It's good to see that you have been blessed with some mighty fine friends.

    Quain, I think we need to appoint you the official "Moonlighter Historian".

    Quain could definitely be the Moonlighter historian...among a lot of other things Moonlighter related.

    Gene has a scrap book that is UNBELIEVABLE! Tons of photos, race flyers, E.T. slips, etc. I am amazed every time I look through it.

    Wow, I just went through this entire thread! It took me 1.5 hours. It was worth every minute. Glad to see you guys down in The Carolinas' know how to keep it together. I will be keeping tabs here from Canada Gene!

    Ah, you guys are coming up to my neck of the woods. Maybe Quian can do a quick makeover and get my Willys done while he's up here. Nice job on the Moonlighter. I'm sure Gene can hardly hold back the excitement.
