It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

It occurred to me yesterday (on the way home after a long day of sanding) that on all the ways to die, falling asleep behind the wheel while listening to Ray Parker Jr sing “Ghostbusters” ranks just behind auto-erotic asphyxiation in terms of embarrassing.
In the photos above:
1)      Parts in racks, ready to be painted one more time;
2)      Aaron in the body shell (inside paint booth);
3)      Frame before and after filler application (ready for paint);
4)      Colour palette selection
Next week I expect there will be some assembly at some point. The frame was transported, sandblasted and returned in less time than it took me to fetch a coffee. It had some pock marks, which were filled pretty quickly. Overall, I was pretty happy with the frame after being cleaned. 60 years on the “Wet" Coast of Canada, lurking in salt air.
