Phaeton Restoration Progress

So ended up making a bit of a late night cruse last evening to pick up a set of harness racks. Very nice J.L. Mott, NY stamped bridle and harness rack sets. Two of each. These items are great finds when they come along. Quite unusual and interesting carriage related Americana.



The work on the Show Phaeton is coming along well. The wheels are primed and sanded and ready for paint.



This is the last wheel of the bunch. Brandon is wrapping up the final sanding on this wheel and that one will be ready to go in the booth.



Bob is working on the seat. It has been sanded and prepared for primer. The existing upholstery is going to stay in place so we have removed the edge webbing and masking of the rest.



The chassis went into paint yesterday. We used our old reliable deep maroon base with clear and it looks fantastic. The wheels will be going into the booth today so we should have a rolling chassis before long.



There are a lot of little nooks and crannies to work on when it comes to painting a chassis. It’s the details that matter when it comes to work like this. It’s impossible to cut any corners and come up with good results.



The body has been painted as well. Such a great little carriage. I’m really looking forward to seeing it back together next week. Stay tuned.

It’s a nice cool day here in the Midwest. I think we are supposed to struggle to break 70 today. My kind of weather!

Have a great day.

Best!
Todd

Having both a Burberry Outlet and retail Coach Factory Store Online in one Coach Online Outlet proves to be Coach Factory when it comes to increasing the Coach Factory Outlet Online margin. This Coach Factory Outlet Online will show you how the two can go Coach Online Outlet in hand.You can distribute Coach Factory Outlet on the wholesale Coach Factory Online to your retail Coach Factory or other retail outlets. Off the Coach Factory Outlet this gives you two avenues to generate Coach Outlet Store Online. This not only earns you Coach Factory Outlet Online, it also supports the economy in your area considering that a good market for a small business is another small business.

My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .
net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of
the expenses. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type
on a variety of websites for about a year and am nervous about switching
to another platform. I have heard very good
things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I
can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

Hey there! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone. I'm trying to find a template or
plugin that might be able to fix this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.
Thank you!

Howdy. I am wondering if you might be interested in doing a
link swap? I see your website: http://www.blogger.
com/comment.g?blogID=492493573027950856&postID=1995624461133436269 and my blog
are based mostly around the same subject matter.
I'd love to switch links or possibly guest author a article for you. Here is my personal email: numbers-ludwig@vegemail.com. I highly recommend you contact me if you're even slightly interested.
Many thanks.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks

Superb blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
I'm planning to start my own site soon but I'm a little
lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free
platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused .. Any recommendations? Many thanks!
