Daniel, Glad to see and hear it up and running. How did come out on the Ele. Start issue, did you find a starter yet?
I bought one off ebay, and square like original. Got this one to my door for $26, and it works like new. I could have bought a new China model for $45 + shipping, but I wanted an OE starter, and this one was cheaper too.
I had to use my air tool to remove a little more block where the starter bolts up to get a complete gear mesh of the starter, and all works perfectly!

Glad you could make the starter fit. Looks like it's always been there. I keep an eye out for one of those 'Work-Mates', but haven't come across one yet.
They're not bad at new prices considering how long they last. Here's a brand new one on ebay that's almost 1/2 price considering it's free shipping: Work Mate

Your probably one of the busiest guys I know, amazing you find the time to work on anything let alone time to do a full restore like this one!
But I just want to say Great Job Daniel! You truly are an inspiration to many of us

Both fenders have been blasted also, but only one has scratch filler applied to fill the tiny pits. The other fender waits in the blast cabinet for the putty treatment.
TONS more to do, but making headway!

Question you have almost the same blast cabinet I have.
What kind of light do you have in it, one that's made for it or a homemade one?
Mine has no light and needs one, just trying to find out what the best way to go is.

Yep, you've got cold air coming your way. A present from us up here.
I was hoping to see pics of you as Santa.
