idrivejunk Wonder how you guys might like this one, then. There is no gigantic stuff in a shop with fire and cranes and chains but for me it was a thinker-

Molon Labe I guess I'm a blue guy too. Besides the Washington blue MGA I just shot my '67 Fairlane in "Nightmist Blue" today. It was a Ford color available in '67.

idrivejunk Whew, man. I been sick since Friday morning but denied it for too long and made it worse. Flawed logic set in during the day and by the time Saturday rolled around it was scary. Today, the GT isn't as bad as I thought and I bought stuff to fix the GTP but thats the best I can make it sound. Gonna take a couple days to catch up to reality.

Looking forward to my intro to upholstery class from John. My favorite solid car color is dark blue. Thats not counting black.

Molon Labe Interesting. The last car I did was an MGA and the paint choice came down to the Mercedes midnight blue that you used and Washington blue which is what I went with. They're very close.

I had a Thompson Mini Brute before. It was a hobbyist class machine and even though it was a walking foot machine, it had a hard time with very thick panels. You can see the old cut out in my table where it used to fit.

The roadster is not Washington blue. It is a late 80's Mercedes non metallic midnight blue. It is a little darker than the Washingon blue.

Thanks. It is an Adler 267-363. It is an excellent machine. I was blessed to buy it freshly rebuilt from a company in Franklin, Tn.

I certainly have my limitations but can do a pretty good job of straight forward upholstery.

This is the rumble seat for my roadster I did with this machine when I first got it.What a joy it was to make the step up.

idrivejunk Such abrasion!

I managed to wear my own down a notch. Christmas party. Home, sweet home. I can go about fixing the GTP this weekend hopefully. The GT munched a rear rotor, it has a monster trench in it. That could mean a few things but teardown first and no spares for rear stuff.

Good to know the only thing bad that happens when I hang the tach at 3,500 for twenty minutes is the header hole gets bigger.
