Default Before and After

My daughter recently bought me a new laptop.... (You younger guys, this can actually happen someday). I was transferring old photos from the depths of the old one onto the new one and came across some old stuff. The quality isn't very good because they are pictures of old snapshots from the mid 90s. I think you get the idea. Will you post some before and after pics of your new/old projects? I just did 2 photos of my first flathead V8, even though I found quite a bit. BEFORE.... AFTER ....

Ok GB, your on! Not much change here, but painted the bed and sanded and oiled the wood. Oh, and used your time-honored painting techniques to blend in some rust clean up around the windshield opening.

So far this has been my one and probably only Ford project. Only took four years of working on it just about every day.

And Phil... That is a HUGE transformation! Why do I think you may have been the only bidder?

It's an HP Core 15 8th generation. That's what the stickers say. I think it is on windows ten. Not sure what any of that means, but it computes better than my old one with all the characters worn off the keyboard. I bought new stickers for the keys on amazon, but then many of the keys gave out after a while.

Got to honest here, I wasn't the bidder I purchased it down the line when the hard work was done. But it was good for the record to have these pics.

During 2WW like many trucks in NZ it was taken by the Army for use during the period and returned later.
