    Looking good Lou! I hope to have mine in the booth in about a week. I'm running on a pretty tight schedule, in an attempt to have it ready for the meet in Tacoma. Do you plan to have yours completed, as well? If so, hopefully, we will see each other there. I am doing my own paint, and upholstery, so it may be a bit less professional looking than yours. I'm anxious to see what color yours will be. Mine was white from the factory, but it seemed a little bland, so I ended up using a modern color, that still fits the era that our cars were built.

    Yes, they are pretty scarce here, although Elko did have a dealership. My car was originally shipped to Reno NV. The closest SDC chapter is Salt Lake City, so we have not joined. When the car is finished, we plan to contact them, and make it over there for special occasions. My next "build" is a 1947 M15A. Very solid old truck, that should be less work than the Hawk has been.

    I don't think that the pink would go well with ANY color interior. LOL Looking forward to seeing the completed paint job. Good Luck!

    Red Green isn't some sort of goofy tv show?

    Of course a colour choice from me may be ill advised.
