Joe, that looks great.  It doesn't look like there was any pitting in the frame.  That is a great start and everything you add will be a show of progress.  This is an exciting time in a rebuild to see everything so clean and new.   Don''t guess we will see it at Carlisle but look forward to seeing the progress pictures.

Frame looks great! Mine was at that stage not long ago. If you're like me, you'll need to rob a bank.

You won't be alone. I'll be there without a Monte too.
