  • She'll be done in a few weeks. They are going to leave the seats as they are, improve the fit on the door panels and headliner, then simply finish the interior. I don't want to bird-dog them too much, but I'll post details as I can.
    More to come.

    • Went by to see how she's coming along today.
      The seats have been finished for a few years already, and so far the shop has the door panels, rear panels, carpet, headliner and sun visors completed. All that remains is the three trunk panels, trunk carpet, kick panels and the shift boot. I just noticed the three vertical stitch lines in the rear panel aren't centered on the quarter windows......think I'll ask them to re-do those. Other than that, looks pretty good, I think.

        • Well, I had a visit with the upholsterer and we temporarily installed the seats. Looks pretty good with them in, and eventually I will probably put a cabinet in the back of the passenger compartment, so we agreed to leave her as is for now.

          • It has to feel good being this close to the finish line! It's come a long way from the field!

              It's been a long and sometimes complicated trip, for sure. It does feel pretty good to be nearly finished.

                  Thanks, my friend. She's got about 1,000 miles on the clock so far, but looking forward to many more.
                  So.........what is Bob Building now??
                  Wish we were in the Key West mix, but planning other things this time.
                  Looking forward to seeing you and enjoying some beer and burgers!!

                    We are downsizing. Sold the house and building a little house . . . that looks like a gas station, kinda. I will try to get a thread goin when some progress is being made. I have the plans so the dreaming is done on that part, so now I am designing the "CrowBar". Hey, if you are DTB ya better have a great bar in your shop. The HandleBar has set the "bar" pretty high in Ole Sopchoppy.

                    Maybe a better name would be Dave the Dreamer ?
