TR-6 Restoration (#14)

Mrs. Cuz sent some iPhone pix.  "Looking like a car again."  Regular readers will recall that the TR is a present to Mrs. Cuz.  Partly, I suppose, for following Cuz's dreams across the continent and back.  How appropriate that it should be a car!  This project has taken longer than either of them hoped or expected.  So I asked the obvious question:

"Ready for you by Valentine's Day?"
"Surely you jest!  No engine install yet."

Right door card and roll-up window installed.

Original-spec, jute interior padding is going in.

But the wiring and dash remain on the punch list.

 Mrs. Cuz chose the visuals: green/tan, chrome wire wheels.  She has excellent taste, doesn't she?

But she may be a tad optimistic when she writes "looking like a car again."

These installments just bring back so many many memories. Some good, some, well, forgettable. But, that moment of fire up, roll out, under own power.....priceless. Don't do what I did once: fail to finish the brakes before the running gear. Thank you neighbor Ron for physically stopping the forward motion of the Moretti. Yeah, I know....I know....but, I was caught up in the moment!
