    Cool Paint Is Finished!!: Another quick paint update - Jeff Miller

    Jeff sent this picture today. It's back on the chassis!



    I'll have a few more pics to add once it's on its feet again and has the windshield mounted. I'll be calling to get a shipping window in the morning.

    It will be home soon! Then it will be a sprint to the end with wheel well, radiator, and door sill sheet metal, lights, and a few other odds and ends to go. Luckily, I've got a long driving season, so I'm hoping to see it road legal and graduated in the next few months! Thanks for your work, Jeff Miller!
