Hi Dietrich,

Thanks, I have never created a report on this project. It was a very extensive restoration beginning with it's chassis that was destroyed in a barn fire, I had to replace all tubing in chassis, make patterns and cast new front axle yokes. The wood body was in very bad condition and the seat was gone, I made a new seat for it. As well as fenders and dash.

Ron
