Seeing your work reminds of when I was a teenager. Back then in the mid 60s there was a gentleman named Manuel Olive I believe. His work was all scratch built, and was absolutely incredible. Just wondering if anyone here remembers him. People like you guys are very rare, the rest of us can only stand in awe. Thanks for sharing these updates with us they are a real treat.

Hi Anne, as you know by now, this stuff we do here is tedious, but some how we manage to get it done, and sometimes cursing a little helps, at least for me ;)

 

Yea Bill, the kit 4 speed looked so good laying there, I took the easy way out, sorry it won't happen again Bill :(

 

Hey Alyn, at least MY knuckles don't drag the ground :P
