    West has been dialing in details on this rig… stuff that take a lot of time, but add to the value and quality of the overall job!!!

    Yesterday I finished up the brake fluid reservoir with welding on the new tube and painted it and installed it. I also welded a captured bolt on the back side so it’s easy for removal if need be.

    After that I moved on to digging out the filled in tab holes for the dash speaker grill. Then I cut out the center section on the retro sound speaker adapter for a cleaner look. I did some paint touch up on the dash before assembling everything, then blasted and painted the speaker mesh black and installed the grill assembly.

    After that franz pointed out that I polish the switch faces as well. So I sanded the machine marks down with some 1000grit paper, and polished to a bright shine. They definitely look better polished.

    Westypoo is starting to sort out your top mech today Mary. Looks like he’s playing with some wood also…hehehe…😁060852AD-0BAA-4A9A-B3B3-B6990BE2DE18239F819B-984F-424A-B2F3-E0F105D69659E5E1F8AC-654A-40A3-82E7-BCBED202BC05

    Well as Pat said,  I located to top frame, dug it out and got it wiped down, found some KMAX bolts to put in it, and chased the threads on the nut plate in the body. I got the frame installed, found all the vert top wood and started seeing where I gotta go to start getting it all fitted up. Man I’ll say… Once you put that vert frame on, that’s when you realize this really was hand built. Lots of massaging and fitting of the wood and the frame to get it all proper.

    West glued the wood together on the rear bow that never got fixed…  some sanding, some adding wood, some glue.. some clamps.. should be solid!  and can be stapled too when the top goes on.. Right before he mentioned he didn’t feel good…. 8-( and left…. 8-(

    Kelly…. Is the top ordered?? I want to get Doug over here and trapped in work for a month if I can!!!  😎  I think next time Franz does a log he should start adding in and saving money for Douglas..
