55 that 350 looks fantastic!  Great job!

I've got to say though, this weather is a real drag!  I've got to find some small projects to get going or I'm going to go crazy.  Hate not making some sort of progress even if it is minuscule.  I think I'm going to make a run to Alro steel and see about finding some flat stock to fashion into a new battery mount, being that it's pretty simple.  That seems like a good plan to me, might also be a good idea to update my pintrest parts board as well.  Really need to think about what parts and pieces I need to rebuild the steering as it is a little sloppy.  Not death wobble sloppy just steering wheel slop.  I've also decided to take the tin back off and keep working till I get it filled and stick sanded as I will have to do some thing for the decal areas any ways.  Sorry, I'm just hear think 'think out loud' at my keyboard and formulate a game plane for this coming phase of the restoration.   Let phase II begin!

 

Doesn't even seem real.

looking good! I'm just catching up on this topic. I watched the video of your daughter's solo. she was sure being careful. make sure she keeps her thumbs outside the steering wheel spokes. if one front wheel should catch a rock, that steering wheel will spin so fast, the driver is apt to get a broken thumb or 2. not likely where she was driving, but somewhere else, possible. just something to learn on Hs, Ms, 300s, etc.
