Since the last update, progress has been made on several fronts. New fuel and brake lines have been installed on the frame, the body has been prepared for soda-blasting, the transmission is in the process of being overhauled, and the engine has returned from the machine shop and awaits reassembly. The body will be soda-blasted early next week, at which point we'll finally be able to see exactly what we're dealing with. We should also finish the transmission next week. The motor will be assembled next weekend, and we'll get them both set in the frame. We'll have some pictures of the body and the nearly completed frame posted to the website soon. For now, take a look at the engine fresh from the machine shop. In just a few weeks, this mass of parts will be made into a running engine.
