Thanks for the tip.

Builder is figuring 2 weeks until we are ready to kick her over. He does a lot of repair so that takes the front seat.

Ya each time I go up to the shop I need to remember to take my GF's Digi Cam as it takes great pics and has a great zoom feature.

She will still have a very long road ahead of her though even after ALL of the mechanical is buttoned up and tight as can be. Mechanical is the easy part. We gotta check out her "Heart" first though. It has been almost 4 years since her "Heart" has been fired to life. Have to go gentle there as we all know but 4 years ago she was supposed to have been rebuilt too and her Heart has been kept out of the elements and has great compression. Now we pray for a great spark.

Keep following my blog link for the latest details if you do not see me post here.

Ya just to being able to fire her up but she has a long way to go to final. A long way. Even if the engine is roached we will build and do EVERYTHING else on her with out the Engine and save the Engine for last.

Thanks for following GP it means a lot.

Gotta love it when they wake up after a long slumber, with a kiss from your foot...
