Prep for Paint - Last of the Door/Door Frame Repairs.

I started on this in June and over the summer have been distracted by a number of things but this weekend I finally completed this section of my project.

Due to the length of this task and the number of pictures I posted a link to the blow by blow description below:

Yours is a beautiful team, unfortunately not living next door to their Grandpa!
  Here are mine, Helena and Aenias (father is greek).
Aenias always at the controls: rocket flyer or Ply driver,
leaving inadequate transportation behind:

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

he had permission to toot the horn twice!

This one without vehicle- but self flying:

This bouncing giraffe castle (My shop compressor for the Ply is useful!)
is loved most- and on those days Grandpa is the greatest -in spite of incomplete landing!!
Greetings to all Grandpas and Mas and others!

Grand kids are every thing, we have 5, three boys and two girls, the oldest boy of thirteen, he shadows me all the time one of those kids that will not grow away, I have 2 Morris/ Austin minis that I hope I will find enough time to build one for him. I have so many grown-up toys waiting to be finished, steaming ahead with my 41 Pick-up to the stage where it is now in my workshop, hope to remove the cab next week.

Tom, I'm told that "He who dies with the most toys wins".  Personally I don't think you actually need a lot of toys just need to play with them once and awhile.  Grand Kids are a great excuse. 

Cheers, Chet...

chet you are very fortunate to have toys from your childhood, I have a couple of tin toys which were always at my grand mothers which came to me when she passed, an Ambulance and single decker Bus, they are at the top of our stairs in a cabinet and only come out for dusting. Nostalgia funny how things return to you mind of bygone days when your memory is jogged.

Any great progress made on the 29 lately, why does everything take so long, but there I have a friend just south of Nashville, been restoring high end cars for comming on 45 yrs, has a large purpose built unit and works on his own, some of his jobs are in the shop several yrs for various reasons. One is a large RR customer passed about 5 yrs ago just before it was finished, told to sell it by the executors but not a lot of call for a RHD in the States.

Mind wandered there Chet sorry.

Great pictures Tom I wish I know more about the history of my car. 

Frank, the motor is just about finished.  Its in final assembly and paint.

Go, Always nice to hear from you.  PS my grand kids are up from Florida and I set up my old Lionel Trains so they can play with the same toys I played with as a kid.  I believe you like model railroading.  Anyway the trains have taken over the den.  Running around the furniture and distracting the kids from the video games, internet, and TV.  Nothing like the sound of a train whistle to get your imagination to run wild.
