GP 8920

Post by Michael C » Wed Oct 09, 2019 7:57 am

Progress on 8920 .... :D

Took it for its first drive last evening - a short test run along our nice quiet street.

Still much to do: slowly, slowly ....

Looks very good! Are you from south of the equator? Is that why the pics are upside down to me?

Thanks, Gents, for your comments.

Pics are right way up on my screen - anyone else having 'inverted' problems? (I'm not posting from Terra Australis, but Spokane, Washington).

Gents,

Some more progress. Hood & windshield getting some work done to bring them back. They were in reasonable condition, but still required the touch of an expert (not me).

Enjoy (sorry about the orientation!)

Mike
