BTW Thanks again for the kind words and encouragement guys.

Why in the living hell is that in the house on your kitchen counter? Does the wife know it's there? I am thinking you are going to sleep with it after all that work.

Beautiful work John, beautiful work.

Better the counter top than the previous pic on the linen tablecloth with the Swarovski crystal...

I'm guessing the wife is away for a couple days....

Actually she is pretty easy. The body mount Tim made is still on the mantle.

When I built the 49 Merc I hung the painted and assembled Dashboard above the fireplace mantle. It stayed there for several months. I could sit on the couch and look at my handy work. Pretty cool.

She is a good woman for sure.

That is too sweet. She sounds like a keeper.

LOL, Yea, I was pushing my luck with that one. Actually that was the kitchen table and the table cloth has been pretty well done in by the grandkids. Still it is not where I needed to take the picture and yes she did remind of that.

In case anyone did not have a mental image of where this bracket went here it is installed. It is the bottom piece attached to the frame. I have to remove it and paint the inside and add the reinforcement to the end. Then the cowl can be shimmed and I can move on to the other side.

Here is the old one.



Here is the replaced bracket

reminds me of when I get new tools. Before they get broken in and trashed around I'll carry them around the house to look at and admire. The wife hates it!
