Sort it out...

Three years ago I pulled my Tatra 603 apart to fix the failing gearbox, clutch, brakes, shock absorbers and several bearings. Since then, the shell of the car and lots of boxes of parts have been gathering dust as the project slowed to a halt. Now it's time to get things going again.

This is how it has been standing for a long time.

I stacked parts inside so I cleaned out the interior to see if I could find all the parts back.

I sat in the front seat, remembering driving the thing in 2008 to the Hotrod Hayride with friends... Good times...

Now here's the stack-o'-parts I found, minus the gearbox, wheels and engine.
This winter, it has to be put back together and fitted with airride. Hopefully, I'll be cruising next spring!

Night Driving

Kustom Korner Hotdogs & Beer Party

Yesterday was a great day. We had great weather, it was 24 degrees, which must be some kind of meteorological record for oktober 1st. It felt like summer and hotdogs & beer only enheanced the buzz.

It was time to show the latest Short-Cut chopper with Kustombart paint. And here it is:
Isn't she lovely?

I was there with the last public outing of the Green Machine.
There's quite a collection of interesting bikes gathering at the Kustom Korner.
I was trying to shift some car goodies and a helmet, a vinyl van mural and a few books now have new homes.

I am also selling every Metalflake Kolor available now, 27 different kinds!
Some visitors from Germany, showing off their Ledsleds. I took a close look at the Caddie's airride system. Thanks for coming over, guys!
Here's the newly installed Tiki Bar for Short-Cut Choppers. It was a gift from Kieft & Klok Vintage VW's.
And The Ledsled part of the shop.

A little display of paintwork from me.

Thanks everybody for coming and making it a great day. See you next time!

Green Machine is sold. It's being picked up on monday so I'll have to enjoy it doubletime this weekend! Really mixed feelings, sad to see it go but glad to go on with a new project.

Have a good weekend. I know I will!
