Adam's been busy reassembling the Ride-A-Matic. Snapped a quick picture before I left for work this morning.

Adam did a great job on the painting. I can tell he's really putting a lot of effort into this one and had learned new tips/tricks since he redid the 1050. He says his goal is one restoration a year and I imagine he will learn more and more each time.

I wish he took more pictures as he was assembling it, but our camera really doesn't give the paint justice. Guess we'll have to take it to more shows! (:
