    Wow, congrats Fannie.

    Very happy for you and your wagon. I know what a long road this is and the progress really makes one feel great.

    Best,
    Tom

    It's been more then a year...

    since I posted on my more then stalled resto on poor Fannie. So this morning I made my way to the garage a took a video of Fannie. Between shoveling snow hubby has been trying to block her up to sand and paint the remaining parts of the frame that he couldn't get to. So here's a video link to my FB page...hope this works...fingers crossed. :)

    The link just takes us to your Facebook page, not to the video. We want to see how that wagon looks now.

    No excitement, no fan fair, jumping little smiley faces, just a few pictures of Fannie up on blocks. Hubby is gently sliding the frame out from underneath. With the garage extension on, the cottage just about where we want it and hubby between employment opportunities, he has a bit of time on his hands so he has turned his attention back to Fannie. fannie3 jan 2017.jpg fannie4 jan 2017.jpg fannie jan 2017.jpg fannie5 jan 2017.jpg fannie4 jan 2017.jpg

    Why is the firewall not the same color as the rest of the body panels? It looks like that GM Frost Fire Green that I like so much!

    The firewall is the original color, Grecian Green. At some point in her life she was painted red with the black roof. We found replacement quarters that are Texas sun drier green. :bigsmile: Thanks for asking.

    Grecian Green? Still an excellent color; will you be repainting Fanny in her original glory?

    Well, sometimes projects like this can take time. My Father-in-law has a couple of cars in varying states of restoration and they are taking forever even though they are at professional shops.
    I do hope you are able to progress with this project more rapidly now. I, like many, are excited to see it finished with you and your husband enjoying it.

    That is our plan. But for now the goal is to get the frame out from under the body, finish grinding the rust off and paint it. Then we'll see what happens next.

    OK, that is different from Frost Fire Green. But still a nice shade.

    Hubby has been busy. The frame is all painted, the engine is set into place, the transmission is bolted back onto the engine, the drive shaft has been attached at the transmission end, we need to pick up universals to get it attached to the rear end which has been painted, the springs have also been painted. Then I decided to add a few final touches.

    A few more pics
