A bit of progress and a small change of direction. I decided to not powder coat the frame (aka the harp) as it is aluminum. So I media blasted it at the base auto hobby shop and have decided to polish it up since it will provide a nice bright contrast between the two shell halves. I've noticed a few other restorers have gone this direction and I like the results. The two shrouds and the base should be done (powder coated red) next week (slow going with this vendor),

Thanks Eddie. Finished up the last of the wainscoting. I opted for some cool old tongue-and-groove painted wood flooring (patina and all) vs. the corrugated steel I used on the other side of the garage...

Sammy, looking real good! As far as the ECO looking familiar? Not any longer, I'd say. You will have to redo my other one and my islander. You do great work! I wonder what the date is on my other one(s). Everything you tackle is done 1st rate. WOW!
