New Life for a Portland Cutter - Part 2

It’s Saturday and it’s cold, rainy and windy. Bummer. It will be good afternoon to spend being productive in the shop. So anyway we are talking about the Portland Cutter restoration.

Here we have the body in the final staged before primer. The wood re-construction has been completed and a coat of hard coat sealer has been applied. This surface will be sanded then primer coats on the body will begin.

The runners are moving along nicely and are in their final stages of primer. Hanging around here sanded and ready for one more coat of primer.

The dash has been removed from the frame after re-construction. It has been primed and sanded once and is now in the final coat ready for final sanding.

So here we are by blog magic the job is complete. We could see the original paint schemes on the original body so we duplicated those patterns. The owner chose a burgundy mohair fabric for upholstery which we trimmed in traditional style.

The striping was a fine line of cream which set off nicely with the burgundy and black. The photos shown here were taken in the fall of 2008 just prior to loading up for the return trip to Pennsylvania. Our clients were not going to be available to meet us during the day for the delivery. So they left the door open and we unloaded the sleigh in their beautiful new living room expansion. We placed it next to the fireplace as directed. My phone rang about 5:30 that afternoon and it was our overjoyed client just arriving home from work. They were absolutely blown away by the sleigh and we were happy to play a part.

Don’t forget Redbud days today! First brat fry of the season in downtown Columbus.

WOW! I can't believe that is the same sleigh! Awesome!
The brat was delicious today! Wish we had more people downtown but maybe the cold weather kept them away.

Yea, I had a couple too. They should do that every weekend! Too bad the weather didn't cooperate a little more. We had a few people roll through but pretty quite here too. Have a good weekend.

Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I

Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?
