Been busy guys.

I bought a carb off craigslist and she runs a way better than when I got her.

Scored some Alcoa aluminum wheels and new tires on Craigslist as well. They were pretty crusty when I got them. About 5 hours of buffing and polishing and they are looking pretty good.

My taillights and brake lights are now working. Thanks to whoever "rewired" them in ONLY red wires. They also never used solder or a even 1 connector. Literally just twisted wires covered in electrical tape.

I also got all my furniture in. Its temporarily screwed down at the moment. I will do flooring next.
It goes in the shop this week to replace the old sagging leaf springs.

I finally took it to the beach with some friends and went surfing. I got stopped 3 times by different people wondering what the heck it is.

Oh wow! That looks even cool from the back - first time you posted a pic of that. Wheels look sharp!

Is the kitchen, bath going to be in the rear?

Yes, I will be building a bed frame, kitchen and bath in the rear.

Got some nice shots of her last night!

Man, it does have a great look to it! I love the seats, looks like they came out of a old New Yorker. And the wheels look great! Does it have any walls in the back to shore up the roof? Also, I noticed it has a awning rail on it already! Also it has the 14"/14" roof vent in the middle, which is the same size opening that the roof A/C's use, and it may already be wired for the A/C also! Also I noticed the vents up high in the rear? To let the air flow out since there are no rear windows? If so, it may stay pretty cool inside, as long as it is insulated good! Looking forward to your progress! Rail!
