Spent most of my time searching for where I put the tiny little cable bolt but eventually found it and dialed in the new shift cable. It makes me draw up a little when it comes time to cut the cable down to length wondering if I missed something before committing!
Thanks Miss Funk. Here's another patina shot for you.
To complete the classic hot rod vibe with the painted rim spoked wheels and wide whites, how can you go wrong with scallops? The trick was making them look faded and rusted but still see a ghost image of the 'original' paint job from back in the day.
Thanks everyone. Chad, the bricks are carved at the plant before they are fired.
It's as finished as it can be at this point. The one thing left that I had not taken care of was the bars. I had planned to do a flat arc type of bar but never could come up with the right one in time. After trying several in my stash that didn't look right, I robbed this set of board track bars off of a bike that I built several years ago. They really worked so they stayed!
Got my final pictures taken a few hours ago. I'll go through them tomorrow when I get home and get them posted in the finished thread.
