To make the bond, much to mums delight, we decided to bring the rocker cover home and work the elbow grease

The previous owner said it was turned over when he bought it with help of a direct feed to the carbs but previous to that it hadnt ran in 35 years. But im not taking any chances. The engine is getting a thorough clean out and Ill try to replace as many parts as I can

Carbs off and cleaned

The color is a big debate and will be fur a long time. The interior is far too good to get rid off so the exterior has to match the light Brown. I want a deep purple out white. Dads thinking dark green but hey were years before paint is a worry
