    Love it! Nice work Franz.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    Thanks! Feeling motivated to get this car driving again. Polished paint and helping Jesse today.

    Sand blasted and painted some parts for mechanical assembly today.

    The heat riser on the intake manifold was plugged with carbon…I busted it loose with a cable chucked in a drill.

    It’s nice to see a car you can rub and rub and rub on and the customer just wants more!!!  😎

    I finished polishing aprons, front fenders and front quarter panels yesterday. Every square inch of the external surface. Its a lot of work…but less than doing a paint job.

    I assembled the transaxle and prepped for installed after that.

    Installed transaxle, adjusted/bleed brakes, cleaned the tarboard, adjusted hinges, and had to weld the hood striker back together.

    Going to stack the engine tin next and get this machine running.
