    Yippy! A lot of work being done. Hope the measles clears up soon!:rofl2:
    Nice to see the original six cylinder going back in.

    Very nice. Always a good feeling to make progress like this on a project.
    So, with the custom lady bug paint-job, does that imply a name change is coming?

    I've seen diapers custom-sewn like that paint job. Ella Bella's Bum is the company name, IIRC.

    Nice.
    It sounds like the decision to keep it this color is up in the air?

    Oh sorry about that I really thought you were.

    The color will be the original color when/if that time ever comes.

    Looking forward to seeing some more progress on that wagon. I'm no better with mine. it came home from the body shop a long time ago, yet is still just a rolling shell.
    Meanwhile, if you want a Beaumont convertible to go along with your wagon, I ran across this raffle for a 68 convertible that you might want to take your chances on.
