Hello Gentlemen,
I wanted to show off some progress on my ‘45.
-Lights and Gauges are all working
-Fuel tank hooked up, no leaks.
-Brakes working well, hydrovac doing its thing.
-All the glass is is in.
Still have plenty of little things to work out, the biggest of which is the body, that’s up next

I’m looking for a good pair of hood latches, if anyone has some they’d like to sell, I’m interested.
Thanks for looking,
Kelley

Thank you all for the kind words and encouragement.
I can’t take all the credit, I’ve had a lot of help, including from the good guys on this site.
Hopefully I can get the body ready to install before winter.

darn Jon.....it's a thing of beauty!! Can't wait to see it in person and maybe go for a cup of coffee with you. Maybe you can join the convoy up to Weare NH next summer. Great job!
