Molon Labe John,

The car looks great in red. This has been an ambitious build and you're certainly not a guy that's afraid to take on a challenge. Thanks for sharing.

Hope you don't mind, John. My single word expression of approval started a new page with no pics on it so... hello again

You should have stopped. Both Tim and I would have been glad to have gotten a chance to say hi. I'm sure Steve would have too.

John long Tim and Christine came in for thanksgiving. It has been a really good visit and Tim volunteered to go up to Steves today and help put in the windshield.




Easily done is not how it went but we got it in there in one piece. It took 5 hours and we had it in and out twice but nothing succeeds like success. It is in and fits well. As some of you guys will remember, there was extensive repair work done to the cowl and windshield frame. I was concerned about the fit. It was good to see it fit well.










Many thanks to both Tim and Steve.


Oh, one more thing. The hood is now red and Steve is getting a good start on buffing it.




As I keep telling you guys. Life is good.

John long I have been so busy lately, I have only been up to Steve's once in the last 2+3 weeks. As I was leaving yesterday he said, "by the way, I have really grown to like the SPI clear. It really buffs well. I have also found it sprays really well if I keep my gun close."

Another SPI fan is walking the earth.

I, for one, have also become a Steve Minnick fan. He has really stepped up to the plate for me.

John long Thank you.

I started this car the end of May 2013. I told my wife I wanted a project that would keep me busy and give me a feeling of accomplishment. It has been a long 6 year project but it has provided everything I hoped it would.

You guys here on the forum have provided a lot of the motivation and support along the way. I don't normally get terribly connected to my cars but there is definitely emotion when I go back and review the journey. It's not all about the car either.

I have gained friends along the way. I have become very close to Barry over at SPI. Most of you know this car was finished 100% with SPI products with the exception of the interior champaign color. The support I received from Barry was just amazing not to mention the quality of his products.

I have personally met Pugsy, Mitch, David, and spoken to others on the phone. If it weren't for the car, I do believe my life would be for the worse.

Life is good guys. What a blessing to have lived the life I have.
