Good Morning;
Ive been gone for a while but Im back now. I ended up with another project which was a little easier to get on the road to play with.
I bought a 57 Olds 98 Starfire which has been lots of fun to get going.

I'm now ready to get back at my Big Bolt starting with re-conditioning the Muncey transmission.

Looking forward to getting back to my first love

Mark

I will be watching your progress.
Recently started to restore a 1950 GMC 1 ton, and will keep myself motivated with your posts.

I know what it's like to put one project on hold, while working on another.

There are 2 twenties era Indian motorcycles and 2 thirties era Harley's to finish 'someday'. Will probably sell a couple of them to finance the GMC resto!

Good luck with your project.
