Don’t you just love fins?  Body work is done on this side of the car.  After the final structural work is complete this part of the work goes fairly quickly.

Body work has to be perfect, straight, clean.  Then the paint is simple and beautiful and quick.

Now we’re talking!  The chrome is starting to come in and will be test fit as the body work is being done to assure a perfect finished appearance.  Also this week, the mock-up engine came in this week and fitting has begun on that.  The tank is getting modified for two supply, two return lines and a sump, the brakes are being built at Master Power Brakes, and MHT, the wheel manufacturer, is asking lots of questions.  That makes me think they might get the wheels built in time for delivery, what do you think?

Chrome plating is an important part of any antique car restoration that is a multi-step process; stripping, filling, polishing, nickel plating, chrome plating, and final polish.  But who cares.  The only part we care about is it looks great!!
