Fabulous Uniformity


Over Christmas the filler work was completed (more or less) and the van was hit with a couple coats of high-build primer. The result is a stunning uniformity that allows one to see the beginning of the end. This finish will be sanded now with fine grit sandpaper and that surface will receive paint. I think it’ll sit like this for a while. There’s still some metalwork to do. The second photo shows how the van was on arrival two-years and four months ago.
The engine will have been with the engine builder for one year beginning next month. Jeez, and I thought I was patient when I told the I needed it for last May. Yes, Mexico was great. I discovered that Happy New Year ("feliz ano nuevo") means "Happy New Asshole" if you don't pronounce it correctly.
