    Message from Domenic today reads.. "we put in the center section or "Ham ", and the backing plates and axels with the new bearing's. Dom"

    note: Domenic: I always refer to it as the 'pumpkin' or 'chunk'... never heard it called a ham..

    Gary , great job with the pictures. Here in Westchester NY. growing up I have heard of the "Center Section " being called a "Pumpkin " but never a" Chunk ". " The Ham "is common here . We also call our long sandwiches "Wedges " here . A common thing to do back in the day was to hook up your reverse lights to a toggle switch and you drove around with your reverse lights on if you wanted to race .

    Maybe they are confused with what we in the antique boat restoration refer to as Lloyds of London marine grade plywood, it is mahogany plywood without any voids very nice can come in rotary or slice cut.

    sales@harborsales.net 800-345-1712 quite expensive but what the heck if you are in this hobby or boats you are spending money ask me how I know.

    Tightline5, Thank you very much for the 'name' of the plywood; I'm pretty sure you are right about where the 'honduras mahogany plywood terminology came from. I used the information provided to find a 'source' for this plywood, with the closest thicknesses being:
    12 mm (slightly LT 1/2") and 18 mm (18/25.4= 0.708")

    Here's the link if anyone wants to order some of this material for their Nomad cargo deck..

    "Bob the restorer "

    Gary , this is my restorer friend Bob Sekelsky in the picture's installing the rear axel's . I'm in a picture with my son at the Rosehill Shopping Center in Thornwood NY. at their Saturday nite car cruise .This was when the Nomad was painted an incorrect pink color. I included a correct rendering of Chevrolet's 1957 Canyon Corral color it's in the picture before , Owner of that car is unknown and only used for what a correct rendering of what 1957 Canon Corral color should look like . Again thank you for all your help .
