Finally home, did some sorting at the shop after the ECH and drove her home tonight. With the way the weather is going it might be the last time out this year, but hopefully I get a little more road time before the winter curtain drops. For now she is happy resting with the other ADAM plates.

Luckily for me, I was leaving the interior as-is.

Ok, I'm going to call this done. All 5 Rudges are done, Bruce Baker and Jimmy Quatermus got the top on, as well as sorted out a million little things that years of experience can do far better than me. Luckily, still a few months of driving left in the summer.

The first time I saw that Roadster I imagined what it could be. I recall the cracked paint and other signs of years and wear and thought about what it might become with careful nursing and proper treatments. Now it's there. If only we could do that sort of thing with our aging bodies (and minds). That car is now truly a badge to be worn by a representative of the Porsche family with pride. What a beautiful job.

The final final piece of the puzzle, it wasn't easy to get this!

Brandon Cove in Charlton, MA did my car. Not sure what you're looking to spend but he was reasonable and I'm very happy with the result. Let me know if you want his info.
