  1. Thanks for the picture of the front shock. Kinda hard to see from that angle but I get the idea. I appreciate you taking the time to do it. Your a good builder and I admire your work-Dale

    Rich, Are you going to be able to do detail shots of the exhaust ? Not much room under a roadster.

    Got the exhaust system done, getting ready to fire up the engine before the exhaust gets sent out for plating.

    I like it better every time I check back and see what you have done since the last time I looked. The car ought to be good for many years of actually getting driven now.

    Well, after overcoming many PITA little problems, starter, carb, ignition issues etc. the car is running and now on it's way to the upholstery shop. Phew!.

    Now I have to send the exhaust out for chroming and a few other piece as well.

    Thanks guys.

    This interior presents several challenges for Bob. He's slow but he'll get it right.

    Yes Duane, you did a nice job on the carbs and intake, thanks again!

    There's nothing impressive here, but you're welcome to come up. It would be good to see you. I should be getting the survivor back from Bob the upoholsterer next week.
