Default AA Christmas List

Well how did you do with Santa this year?
I got a new creeper, a wheel puller, an air wrench and needle scaler, three restoration books and an engine stand.
No partridge in a pear tree.

It IS The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!!

I got a new shop apron and gift certificate to Bert's. Guess it's time to plow ahead with the front end restoration.

I think I have most of the parts to do my front end. I have a spare axle to replace the bent one in my truck. Think I will go ahead and pull engine first though.

The family being together and seeing the happiness on the 8 & 12 yr grand kids is all I could ever ask for! My AA restoration took a back seat to the need of a first floor bedroom. Funny that when I built the house 42 years ago never though climbing stairs would be tough and dangerous, now that project is finished. The AA needs a small bit of body work then paint (we do it all here) and a new Rootlieb hood which is now back in the budget. The best part about the project is the kids were into the restoration from the start 2 yrs ago and can't wait to ride in Grand Pa's '31 Budd cab SWB DRW flatbed!
'29 Coupe, '29 CCPU, '31 TuDor, '31 AA SWB DRW, '31 AA LWB

It’s been a great few days with all the family (and dogs) here, our normally quite home turned upside down; and I love it!
