Lots done!

Underbody just about done; truss rods not up on the queen posts yet, and needs a bit of paint and stain to complete.



Should be able to wrap this project up this week.

This might seriously test my sanity....one of a handful of passenger cars that I got off eBay from Trainz when proper packing was an alien concept.....but the trucks are there!

You ever watch those house renovations shows where they basically gut it to the frame and then build a new house. This car might fall into that category.....but I think it's worth salvaging.

Maybe more of an open mind reno - I almost tossed this but I've tossed stuff before only to fish it out of the trash and have the finished item get a Merit award at the regional MER convention,

Yes.....reminds me of that scene in Blazing Saddles.

Need any help?
Oh, just all that I can get....



Right now I've got to get a LWS kit for an MP54 that I bashed into a combine off my #1 bench. Been there for about a decade staring me down...laughing at me.....and I finally worked up enough nerve to "finish" it. Couple days away from that end point.
