   Jeff I think she's going to be "looking good" with her makeup on. Your going at it the right way. It's great to see these old machines been saved from the crushers.

   Anybody got any comments or thoughts on how this rebuild is coming along ??? Any ideas that you would do or change ? Jeff what color are you thinking about putting on her ?
   It looks like your body man is well experienced in his work. I'm very impressed with his work. You are doing it right my friend....

Well Jeff, you are doing a 100% great job. My hats off to you and guys like you that can handle a welder and repair old and fabricate new modifications like you do. Your machine will pop to life once you start the paint flying and adding the glass and rub rail. Keep up the good work and I am looking forward to seeing her through to the finnish line.

  Jeff... don't paint her caterpillar yellow cause Grfishmaker might bring his to your place & pull the ol' switcheroo on you.

Brian,

If Jeff does not want to sell.  Send me a note.  I may know where there is one.

  That is one of the sharpest looking colors I've seen so far... She'll look great when the handles & trim goes on.

  Here is the place where his hinges came from. I'm not sure about the handles. I'll ask Jeff when he calls again. They look like the ones that are in truck supply stores.

   Hello Claude,
Thanks For the compliment!
I’m not sure what type of paint he’s using . Jeff’s friend is doing the paint work as to the hinges I sourced them from Allegis corp.  www.allegiscorp.com
There’s two types available.
PN 2432-2  7/32 offset
PN 24321-4  5/16 offset
I used both types on Jeff’s  rig.
I look forward to seeing it completed as well.
I will send more update pictures when it comes back for glass and other work.
Thanks
Mike
