A Smoothed Engine Compartment

It's the details............boys!

R1 - Restoration Progress

Summer and the heat have rolled in!   Between the 96-100 degree days and vendor order delays, I'm experiencing a fair amount of frustration.  Even though I put two of my orders in 7 months and a full year ago, I'm still waiting.  Which has slowed the finish-up of the R3.
However, I continue to work - progressing soundly on the second restoration project - the R1.  I've hopped up the engine in this car from the original R1 to an R2 (with blower) power house.  

Here's a sneak peek at the car owners color choice, Ionized Bronze.
