A few refresher pics of the '47 coupe at work.

As it was when I took over. They had sent the body out for blasting a couple years before and discovered a LOT of rust under the paint and bondo. It then sat...










Ready to build it for a sbc and 200r4.



Skipping way ahead, after powder coating.



Lots of panel replacement done on the body too...

I hope to have the T speedster ready for the 4 th of July parade.
Ya spin a pretty good yarn here, but without pics, who's to believe...?..ha....

I came home early today were going out looking for a cheap go kart for Miyah and I to build together. I found an old 3 wheel elec golf cart but don't think that's the way to go,Im thinking of us building something she can give to her kids someday she likes the idea of that. either way it'll have to be done for spring. should be a fun project.

Here we have my only go kart, the only dog we ever had, and my first car all in one shot that I took with my first camera. I was 12. The cart was a scratch built by Dad riding mower first and has been a trailer for one since around 1980. I ain't did much today.

Not much to brag about today but did get five minutes in making template and bend pattern for my transmission mount. I hope I can finish it monday. Time will tell

I'm trying not to get to frustrated but I do miss being able to get more accomplished.

wife designs

A few years ago when it was too cold to work on the building project we spent the winter south at my old farm. My wife spent a lot of time on the drafting board. doing the design for her dream kitchen, She does all the tile work, painting, adding wood grain to some of the pieces. she was hesitant about moving out of the big farm house her father started building the year she was born. before WW 2, but she has trouble climbing stairs,
We have a lot of stuff to get rid of. going from 6 br 4 bath to a 3-2.
