49 Sports Runabout Photo Album

Postby gaff » Sun Sep 27, 2015 7:19 am

Cleaned up a mess photos of the Sports Runabout restoration for an album.

Took me a lot longer to finish than I anticipated but I think it was well worth it.

Planning on first launch next month. Will add to album when it finally goes in.

The help I received from the folks on this board was incredible! Can't thank everyone enough.

Regards

Steve

Thanks Andreas

It required a lot more work than I thought it was going to when I got it.

Amazing what varnish and paint can hold together.

You and the rest of the folks here have extremely helpful over this very long process.

Thanks again
