DRS50 Same here on the parts for sale, got buddies at work that want some parts I have for sale but they just don't have the extra money right now.

I worked on the rear fender flares this weekend and got the steering joints put on column and box to measure for the steering shaft length. Was pretty nice out today so I got the car out and cleaned it up inside and out.

I sold a lot of parts at the last swap meet for pennies on the dollar of what I had hoped to get.

The only place the Harley prices are still high is at the dealers because they can get financing for almost anyone.

It is kind of scary.

Ran this one down kinda "thin" but we don't put many miles on a year either. This is the original tire with 9,091 miles on it.

Looks good Matt. My son in law has a '39 2 door. The 37-39ís are my favorites.

tech69 burned out on this 40 Merc. It's awesome to see what a great restoration shop offered in terms of fabrication in the day. It's not very good at all but I'm sure it was ahead of its time for the era. It's gonna look pretty decent now with good gaps. I'll take pics of it slammed to the floor after it's buffed.

the way she's moving it I'd say she's ok. Can never be sure but she seems to be ok. We were ready to take her while on vacation after the advice nurse recommended that we take her if she's in pain after 3 days but she seemed fine. I know it's a little painful though cause there's certain things she won't do now but her mood and movements with that arm seem ok.

Once I get the small patches at the bottom corner of the door and the belt line trim, I can move on to the deck lid, tail pan and weather strip channel.
