Almost Done!

I spent the weekend in Orlando working with Richard and Paul of Imagination Engineering putting the Healey together. We got a lot accomplished, but not everthing. Santa is supposed to deliver it to me Christmas Eve. I've added a couple new photos if you are interested in seeing how its coming along.

I haven't posted photos from the restoration of my Austin Healey in a while, so I thought I would catch everyone up to date. This week the car has been painted and buffing and cleaning should be completed by end of week. Next step is to begin putting it all back together.

Upholstery has been delivered (Heritage Upholstery & Trim) to include carpeting, interior panels, seats and trunk liner.

Numerous chrome pieces were replated rather than buying new pieces. Chrome work was done by Pot Metal Restoration and Plating in Tallahassee, Florida.

Hope to have it on the road by end of year.
