Looks like you are in the home stretch. Can't wait to see it completed. Post some pictures of the interior when everything is done.

Only someone has is going through the same process of restoration work could appreciate how much that picture means. I'm thrilled to see it at this stage of rebuild. I know you didn't cut any corners to get to this point. Enjoy the fruits of your labor this summer. As for my project it is running but the body work needs to be installed. I have about 2 weeks left of school before vacation time. I have absolutely no time for anything during the school year.

Wow! If you are second place the other guy had better be absolutely mind boggleing incredible. Knowing the work that went into your car it is hard to imagine finding any flaws in it. It looks absolutely super to me.

The winner was a 1926 Chrysler, and it was spectacular. I think he also got best in show. Mine still needs work, but its just odds and ends now. I didnt mind coming in second to a car that nice.

Hi Ed:
Did you get a rubber floor mat for the interior or did you go with carpets? Do you have rubber thresholds for the doors or did you find something else to replace them? I have a set of thresholds in pretty good shape but they are too brittle and I don't think they should be used except as patterns to reproduce new ones. Have you got any pics of the interior?
