Getting set for 2018 season.
Lined the glove box with needle punch fabric, black....
With the help of my friend Dan, added original cast side markers however had to use new centers. Neat authentic piece!

Another angle.....
The edges are slightly arched and sharper casting. These were all cast at once and the casting marks on back match all other originals as one batch equal a match....

Minor detail but cool.
Thanks to John Bessey for making these parts.
All about the details.

John patterned these parts after an early car.
The detail is in the notch and playing.
Today’s has no notch and are yellow playing. Next detail is to change the screws to studs

Actually on the bottom, helps space the gap with the spun units.
In the picture I had it on top, since moved it to below.

Continuing to make small changes now that winter is upon us.
Added period rod ends to SS rods. Going to use small alloy tubing to shroud rod for correct look.

Always work to be done.

Hi Jeff
Your outstanding work and your eye for the details are of great inspiration for my project.
But the chocolate foil on the Weber's is still challenging me

Added a little more of a touch.
Happy at the moment, will touch up final details after adjustment.
