Shiney is good. Knocked-down gloss would be good too. Whatever u guys think would be badder-ass.unkParticipantJuly 20, 2018 at 7:43 amPost count: 207

Sending out the chrome. Spending dat money. $1500 estimate on the window frames.FranzKeymasterAugust 5, 2018 at 8:47 amPost count: 1628
I’ve been working on assembling the last week…but I keep running into problems. The pedals need new bushings, the roller pedal is broken, and we’re missing the rhd accelerator shaft. I found all the parts needed and have them on the way. Had to use a early bus master for RHD brake line routing. The dual circuit had the outlets against the pan head.
Steering box re-seal and packed with moly grease. I have the body on the pan temporarily to align the steering box, so that can cut perfect length tie rods.
I’ll probably work on the body for a couple days while waiting for parts.
