    If that Midas was in Madison, KY, it would still be rusting in a field! LOL

    If I would have seen it in person. I would have bought it. But it would be in the "Scout House" with my Terra keeping it company. Until I found a motor for her! (And time to change it out!)

    And I'm sure my wife would make me sell the Terra! I don't have the room for two.....Or even the time for one!

    No kidding. Scouts take time. I tell my wife it keeps me out of the bars. But, of course I drink beer while I work on them.

    The stripes are painted. We took lots of pictures and did templates of the original stripes. They look really close to the originals.

    I have updated the blog with new pictures. A lot of new things finished and installed. This has been two and a half years in the making and it is awesome seeing it come together.
