    Unfortunantly, no. Unless I could talk my brother into it. Are you serious? PM me.

    Here you go, Al.

    Some progress has been made along with other activities going on plus me being lazy.

    It`s back in my shop and will return it to the restoration shop to install the hood and fenders , later.

    We took a quick trip around the garage to check the mechanics. All seemed OK.


    I`m fortunate in having very good part time help with it. Carl, who I call a modern day gypsy, is also my upholstery guy. He lives and works out of a school bus.

    He did the `54 Landau, `55 Concept and `55 Station Wagon. If you have seen any of these cars, you have seen how good he is.

    Not smart enough to get two videos on the same post.

    Also changed cameras.

    John, yes, same color.

    Got it back to my shop today. A few adjustments need to be made on the fitment of the front fenders.

    Congrats Bob.

    I'm certain it will come out looking awesome.

    If any one has any doubts all they have to do is look to your Landau.

    Hey Al,

    Looks like Charlotte in april for the first show.

    Still waiting on the embossed material for the door and quarter panels.

    Dealing with SMS, you learn patience.
