Ted, was that question to me? If so, not much to see...just a rebuild kit from Moss installed so nothing visual to show for it when done. Haha

Drove to Wisconsin and back last Saturday and picked up my new Bugeye. 1,040 miles round trip in one day - a new personal best. And it snowed the entire way home.

January 18th was the 50th anniversary of the day I bought my first Bugeye, which is sitting in my garage undergoing a refresh.

New Bugeye.....

For the past month or so I've been stripping my shell back to bare metal - lots of wire brushing and elbow grease, but a good way to get to know your car intimately.

Got mine into the air. Rotisserie still needs work.

Ben,

You need to tie the front and back legs together or you will put extreme pressure on the car body and bend things. A pair is 12' 2 x 2's or a 2 x 4 on each side will fix the problem.

I have a bunch of 10 foot sticks of 1.5 inch angle that I'll be firming it up with.

I had no problem with my rotisserie: It worked great ! The door gaps and bonnet/hood fit are very nice !
