I really fell behind updating this journal. Last entry was about finding seats, which I ended up recovering in leather last winter. After that, I was pretty well ready to go with the car and it is now resting in my shop, all sorted out and good to go. I've only put about 100 miles on the car since finishing it but that will change in short order.
