Re: only the beginning

Looks like a great time ahead with a sponge and some soapy water!

It will be interesting to see what it looks like under all of the dust, and hopefully it will have protected the finish somewhat.

It looks like it has been taken some way away from stock - will you be restoring, or just get it running and enjoying?

Re: only the beginning

I luv it !! I don't know where the K's are coming from either. In the past year, I have seen 6 within a 50 mile radius of me. Pa
