A Little Test Drive

Sunday, December 6th, 2009

The car runs great, after connecting the spark plugs in the correct order the Weber carb fired the engine right up. More trim needs to be installed, the wiring looked over, and a few small items still need to be taken care of but this car is finally nearing the finish line.

Last of the Painted Bits

Saturday, December 5th, 2009

There were a few things that had been forgotten or had to be replaced after the car was painted. A lot of work has been put off because these few items were missing. Now all the lights can be installed, the ignition coil, and the bonnet latch. The car can finally be started up.
