The window plastic should be here by the end of the week. Here’s how it looked yesterday.

Here it is after 2 hours of work last night.

After another hour or so this morning it was ready for some color.

I used the Lime Away on the body this time before I started with the steel wool.

Now I want to strip the other two and do the same.

I like finding the weird ways that things were attached back then. The way the engine is floating between the interior and body is pretty neat.

Hopefully by the time I get the windshield, I’ll already have the next one.

Thanks for checking out my stuff.
