Money’s Top 100

So money magazine picked the top 100 places to live and as usual Wisconsin has a few cities on the list. Middleton is number 4. Hat’s off to Middleton. It is a nice city but to really appreciate it you need to be into urban sprawl and fields of McMansions. The development there has been fast and furious. Some of it has been pretty well done and like much of America some of it hasn't. It always feels like a little big city to me. Other Wisconsin cities on the list are New Berlin at 34, Pewaukee at 61, Germantown at 76 and Waunakee at 78. Waunakee? Give me a break. Waunakee always feels like a speed bump on my way to Middleton. Sorry Waunakee but I’ll stick with Columbus.



So that’s a paint job. Dale just shot the final coats of clear on the show phaeton body on Friday. This is a shot of the side panel. They don’t leave the shop until I can see myself in the shine. It is looking great. Dale is striping the chassis this week and I will follow up on that project later in the week.



We are continuing work on the Kimball Brougham. As you may recall the left rear upper corner panel was split. The only way to properly repair split panels is to remove them and start over. So the panel has been removed and ready for replacement this week.



The interior has been completely removed and you can see what the inside structure of a brougham looks like pretty clear in this photo. One advantage to removing the interior is it makes the structural and panel repairs on the outside much easier to do in a proper fashion.



The roof is pretty tough. It must has had some moisture issues at some point to de-laminate this much. The top consists of two layers of veneer. We are thinking we may be able to remove the top layer and fasten the bottom layer. Then over lay a new panel on over the top.



This is a shot of the interior seat frame. This caned panel inserts below the cushion on the interior seat. It is in great shape so we will be refinishing this part and reusing the original caning.

It’s going to be a very busy week. I have a number of different projects in the air and looking to make substantial progress on all of them. Stay tuned.

Have a great week.

Best!
Todd

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large initial investment.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I started to get real income.
It gets down to choose a correct partner who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the profit with me.

You may ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
