Thanks to Ron we have some more parts that will find their way to the Slat Project. That reproduction top bow is spot on and will look great once the body gets to that point. :D

This is what happens when you ask a plumber and his helper to straighten the side of the jeep that was pushed in. :shock:

Looking great, Ernie!

I see my old ACM2 tub back there!

Knicking away at the rusty problems on this prêt 12/31/41 Slat tub. Ernie got this one from Michael "Dino" Danieli some years back and now we are attacking it. Matt Parry, Chuck Lutz, Paul Fitzgerald and myself are gonna see it gets done. :roll:
Woow, it's so amazing
