Very nice, Tony! I'm currently restoring a BB that I found in a field in North Texas. Mine was in far worse condition for sure. Progress is being made, though. I guess I should create a build post, as well. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Will follow your progress. This is my second full restoration on the 914 but first LE. I may have some specific questions down the line that you may be able to answer. Best of luck to you! You'll be driving it very soon! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif)
