Just got home from an all day baseball tournament and found #47 on the door step. :dancing:


I already test fit it and while it will need a tiny bit of tweaking, it fits nicely. Thanks again John. For now, it's sitting on a little glass shelf next to another of your works. :thumbsup:

Re: Hood Ornament
 
Well thank you John and thank you Marlyn (p0pz). Received a hefty PayPal notice with Marlyn's $$.

Again John... you didn't have to do that. But I AM glad someone else gets to put their hands on one of those big brass beasts. :thumbsup:

Thank you once again for all you do to support us here. :bow:

Yesterday afternoon after completing the 'have toos,' I sat in the shade by my little shop, had a local Jazz station on, sipped iced tea, cleaned up some of the casting flash on the hood ornament with my jewelers files, and did a little 600 grit sanding. All in all tinkering on The Ornament is very relaxing and a nice way to spend time. :thumbsup:Thanks John.:grin::grin:

My utmost thanks to both Steve and John. I stop in here several times a day clear my mind (whats left of it) of all the trash I deal with on a daily basis and focus on what is really important. Goofy little rear engine cars.
