All - The convertible top has been completed on the 1918 Kissel Sedanlette. It is now being trimmed and I will pick it up this week. Thanks for another great j9b by Mark Larder.  More pictures to follow when she is out in the sun.

It's gorgeous, Ron!

 

I've stopped in at Mark's shop and I agree; his work is exemplary!

Five years between this total restoration and building a new home . Happy they both are done. Time to enjoy!

Absolutely stunning, and awe-inspiring work, Ron. I'm glad you now own the green Kissel which my wife and I rode in after our wedding, in 1974.

Lump - I drove it today. And I’ll be showing it off during our Woodward Dream Cruise here in Birmingham! She loves to be driven and shown off! Here she is with the Gold Bug in front of our house which is four doors from Woodward!

Just finished restoring the rear spare hub cap medallion. It was faded but managed to find a fine point paint pen that I used to blacken the field. Will mount it tomorrow. 

Ron.
