Look forward to seeing this develop. Nice to have some of the history to go with it as well.
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

It is going, slowly. The motor is almost complete in the frame. Bodywork is still with Steve Crow in Sydney but I'll get him to start painting after the year end break. I haven't had a life for well over three years Zedboy, but coming out of the woods now. Working in the resources industry in WA has been tough over the last few years, post boom, but now enjoying the fruits of that labour along with increased motivation to get this one completed.
