    Congrats - a great feeling to hear them loud pipes come to life - the Gypsy tent in the backround adds that special flavor

  19. I didn't have anyone complain. One guy from a few houses down stopped by a few days later 'cause he knew I had it running.:)

    Not quite. Header then about a foot of exhaust pipe.

    And thats not even my house.
     
  20. No better feeling than running down the road in something you made go, except maybe stopping.

    Congratulations man! I know just how you feel - I drove mine in and out of the garage under its own power yesterday! Just a windshield, exhaust and a carb rebuild and I'm ready for spring!
     
  22. That's what I need too. A windshield and exhaust....and paint!

  26. Ya, that stuff. But I didn't have any beautiful old patina to start with.

    The body is going to be a almost the same shade of blue and I havn't decided yet what colour the roof will be.
