Hi Chris,  Engine is shaping up oh so nice on this one.  I hope that hinge comes in soon cause I really want to see the other one completed.  Both good builds and subjects!  cheers, tim

Started assembling the tubular frame.

I put all the parts in the tumbler for some cleaning and polishing after a few evenings of drilling and dry fitting. 

My plan is to get most of it put together, then paint it alclad aluminum.

I would like to thank all the people checking in! It does give me a smile and a little motivation.

As you can see by the photos I got the engine nestled in between the frame rails and a couple more lines plumbed
