    Well I've had her now for two weeks, carburetor odd today to be rebuilt, fuel pump pulled sent out for rebuild, distributor cap, wires, router ordered, brake cylinders in , fuel tank pulled, all hardware off, wicker ordered for seats. Almost ready to start stripping paint. Hoping to be able to fire hercup in the next week or so. Canny wait to hear how she sounds.

    Update....well everyone....finally got to fire her up on Sunday....was so exciting to hear her run....needs some fine tuning and some gaskets replaced but overall everything looks good mechanically wise. Taking all chrome parts to be recromed next week....things are coming along quite nicely.....this is such an exciting project to be working on. I see now why all the excitement the one gets as each peice of the puzzle comes together....I will post pics soon.
