Herald Restoration Weeks 16-19
The past few weeks have seen the completion of the differential, the transmission and the convertible top. I have received a new camshaft and lifters. We are awaiting the delivery of the rebuild engine pieces so that assembly can begin. The painted frame has been delivered and tires are ordered. In the next few days I hope to begin reassembly that will create a rolling chassis. The remaining body parts should arrive and be painted by the end of the month.
