Hello been a while and thought I would bring you up to date on the 1256. We did a working restoration on it. Not of show quality, more a worker and enjoyable to us restore! My dad did not want to go crazy and I helped when able after work and weekends. It started with a rebuild of the lift clyinder and we are at painting wheels and weights. Here are the pics!

If your "non" restorations look that good.... you're both hired! Looks great. I love that model.

Larry you inspired this as I follow you on MTF! What I mean is we will scratch her up and use her when times right! If I took closer pics you could see mistakes. I ran the paint in spots. I'm happy with it though!
