Recent Restorations at Snoqualmie

This project had a couple of firsts. This was the first restoration project I was fully involved with at the museum. This was the first project I photographed using my (then new) digital camera. And it was the first time I took a more central role in a restoration project. It was a lot of fun restoring this car. I am glad to have had the chance to work on it.

The epoxy primer has been applied, giving a solid surface for the top coat.
