The most difficult and time consuming areas of the restoration were the disassembly and the manufacturing of so many new and unique parts.
As many of you realize our restoration goals go far beyond light repairs, painting and polishing. In fact many of us welcome, and enjoy any opportunity to do the fun part -- the finish work!
