Herald Restoration Weeks 14-15
Progress continued with the frame and a number of parts going to the paint shop. An excellent color match was achieved to the original and the painting was completed. I am still awaiting the bonnet and the two large body pieces back from the stripper. More parts were cleaned and repainted. The dual carbs were returned and one of the heat shields is at the welder being repaired. The diff was assembled thanks to the folks of the Illinois Sports Owners Association. (Joe P) I had a great time learning how to do that and was able to see a transmission repaired. One member (Rick) offered to sell a rebuilt trans and if it will fit, I will take him up on that to save time.
