Meantime, it's June, weather is getting nice, and some familiar faces are showing up..
So I got lazy with the camera, and took few pictures of the reassembly after paint. . It took more than a few minutes. But, here's the finished product :
I will say this : taking a good picture of this car is actually harder than the restoration ! It's a tough color to photograph.
Looks different at various times of day and under sun, or clouds, or whatever.
Hopefully, as time goes by, I'll be able to get a few good shots of "Golden" .
