Long time no post....I got busy with others hobbies and haven't touched this machine in almost 4 years....But it's time to get it running and sold. My other hobby needs a new set of tires.

Thank You...It looks much better in photos than it does in person....Paint is a 20 footer at best.
Spent sometime over the holiday weekend cleaning and going over all the pics I saved when I first started working on it.....Got all the electrical connections and wiring finished....I just got to get the wires back in the power block.

It didn't clean up as well as I had hoped but I just don't want to spend the time repainting everything.

Has the market changed over the last 4 years....?

Oh well....Just my luck.  It won't be restored as far as looks go but it should run like new.  I'm surprised with all the rage on ratrods that these older machines haven't taken off. I think every shop needs one. My original plan was to actually take this machine to the local car show when I got it finished to try to sell it, too late now car show season is already over.

Good news...Finished up the wiring last night...Plugged it in and within 30 seconds the top coils started to get cold. Now I'll do some cleaning on the box and get everything back together and post some pics.

The door cleaned up pretty well....So I went back and cleaned on the cabinet some more. I fixed the missing/broken pin on the bottle rack and got it installed.

After....
