If you keep moving, it makes it harder for age to catch up.

When you get my age, 86, it would take you 152 years to complete..

Nicely organized.

Rip it all apart, chop the top off, lose interest and leave it out in the rain..no wait, this isn't a hotrod forum is it..Nah...engine build ongoing, here's the fifty cent static balance of half the rotating group



Nice block sleeved and exhaust seats,babbit fresh. finish it and the chassis by spring..should be a piece of cake, A true model a guy, the late Dick Wolpert built this chassis, though he is gone the quality of his work endures
