This is sort of an interesting time of year. Late summer - pre fall. You can begin to feel a change in the air. The plants show it. Some of our flowers are beginning to wind down. The corn is setting ears. Everything is still beautiful but you just begin to feel that change is in the air. Dew is on the grass every morning. Spiders making their webs.
We were out for a little run this morning. The sun over the marsh was really beautiful today. Everything was soaked with dew. I really like the way spider webs come to life in the morning. The combination of patterns, water and light are interesting. Cheryl caught a couple images and the one above was my favorite.
We have a body blog today. The body for the Kimball Brougham has been sealed, primed, sanded and primed again. On a large piece like this I like to let it rest for a few weeks at this point. Let things cure out a bit.
It has really been turning out nice. The panels are level and the new panels blended seamlessly. We have a color selection from our client and Dale & I went over the vehicle to select the break lines in color from black to green.
The Whiskey body is also on the move. Not much resting going on with this one. It is shown here in first coat primer. We are looking to have this body as well as the shafts sanded and in second coat primer by the end of the day today.
I’m also looking to build the seat frames today so we can start in on upholstery. The fabric for this carriage is a wool Bedford cord. Ryanne is wrapping up the seats for the Mad Max Road Cart and will be ready to dive into this later this week.
Feels like it is going to be a beautiful day today. Sunny and the air is a little dryer. A great summer day.
Have a great Tuesday.
