Default Reintroducing my Model A

Hello all, just reintroducing myself and my Model A, I shared this picture about 2 years ago but just wanted to update the progress on it, my family picked this 29 roadster up 2 years ago, and 2 years later this is progress on it. I thought it deserved to get showed off a little bit.... More pictures to follow.

I have a very early 29 rumbull seat roadster. so early it has a lot of 28 parts on it. I haven't seen that part you show. You have me scratching my head. Now you know tomorrow I will be out in the shop looking around in the rumbull seat area for it!!!

Thanks for the like on the color 700 RPM, there's a story on that color, I was going for the darker stock brown, but lets just say there was an accident at the paint shop and this is was it. But after awhile we started liking it better so we stayed with it. Lesson learned anyway, cheaper the estimate on the work, more problems your gonna have.
