    Your preparatory work looks great! Lots of work done.
    BTW, I like the bin/rack system on the wall in your shop (and with labels so you can narrow down which bin to look in first).

    Very cool pic, and car! I don't recall if I ever saw one of those, or maybe at the time was just unappreciative. I find a number of cars that I just looked past in the old days, I now appreciate.
