Thanks Guys! Glad you approve. :)

At this point Pete I'm not setting anymore deadlines. My hope is to have Dave come next spring to assist in wrapping up the disc brake conversion and I will continue putting on the trim from there. The interior is going to be very expensive and I need to save my pennies before I can get it done. If I can make the cruise for cats show next year I'll be very happy. :)

After waiting several weeks I got the call that the Oval Air cleaners were finished and fully restored. Took my breath away when I got home and put them on. I just had to see what it looked like! LOL Nothing beats original OEM parts brought back to better than new condition. ;) I had no intentions of putting the stickers on since assembly line Christine did't have them. What do you think?

Thanks Dave & Pete!

I was fortunate to have Dave swing by and check out a few things. There's nothing like having a seasoned professional mechanic look things over. Dave was quick to point out some things that needed addressing beyond his buttoning up of the transmission coolant lines. I'm very appreciative of his willingness to help and push Christine to the next level. Unfortunately it was just to damn cold to do anything today so unless it warms up (which I doubt) it looks like I'm done until spring. I did finish restoring the washer bag brackets though and wasted no time hanging the bag. Everything I add gets her one step closer to being finished and gives me a tremendous sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. These are the things one dreams about during the restoration process. All in all I made my goal of firing her up this year so hopefully she'll be ready to roll next year. :)
