  1. Can't wait to see your dash in the car.
     
  2. Great progress!
    Drop me a line if you're ever through VA. I'd love to see your car in person.
    Best of luck to you.

    Man I am really waiting to see a complete body-on picture of this thing Chris!

    Thanks for the continued mentions of our shop.

    Someone mentioned the cowl overhanging the frame on Chris's coupe - This roadster is on basically the same frame he has, and shows that area pretty well.

    Well guys some times life kicks you in the nuts and hot rods get put on the back burner. I haven't touched it since June. so I finally got out there and back on it. I thought I'd post a few photos to catch you guys up where I am. Sorry it's not more organized.

    Thanks guys for the kind words. It feels good to see progress. I got the glass installed the wiring almost finished. Still need to install the seat and seat belts and steering shaft. Then double double check every thing and it will be time for a test drive. I hope

    Thanks guys for the kind words. I've got a little up date. I have installed the dash and gauges. The car is completely wired. I still need to align the car. Give it a double check on everything and install a seat and we are ready for a test drive. I'm sure there will be plenty of bugs to work out but I'm excited.
