Nice work Jeff... I'm impressed!

My shift knob is on the way! I contacted your guy... no luck with the handle. No word yet from Kemper on the color, either... sent him snail-mail months ago.

Default Ahhhhh!

Would like to have started already... first, I need to both get school out of the way and get the house built. Then I will get on it in a big way. Meantime, I'll collect the parts and squirrel them away for then.

I appreciate your help Jeff with finding those cool parts. I wouldn't have them if it wasn't for you. You are a wealth of knowledge and you are very gracious to share it. Congratulations on becoming a Concours judge!

I love your build... the wheels look fabulous!

BTW:

I have had an upper steering shaft which came out GREAT!

The part is all steel and used Oilite type bronze bushings, way better than plastic type on SAI. Very high end part and perfectly made.

How long do you figure it'll be? You've got to be glad it's on the ground!

Plan:
Running by Sept
Driving by Oct
Painting and bodywork winter......
As many car events as possible 2012

Travel round trip across USA 2013 with a friend. Me in this car he in an Elva.
