I got a break from graduate school and managed to get the rest of the interior painted and clear coated. Onward.

I have two more side windows restored and put back in. Going to pop the rear wheels off and replace the e-brake cables and go through the rear brakes.

I was in France with my family on vacation last week. We rented a Twingo. Damned thing couldn't get out of it's own way, but the rear-engine configuration was kind of cool as a balanced car through the mountains. No torque steer at all. Also went to a shop near Montpellier and bought a rally t-shirt. The shop owner was a sponsor of a recent rally there (I just missed watching it) but he gave me this plastic sign which was cool.

Anyhoo, also been sweating it out here in the dead of the Texas heat getting stuff done on the girl. Got some parts on order and put in a few interior panels, did the base of front seats with wicker, side door seals, my wife helped me sew a red limit strap for the side door, and put in one of the rear back-up lights (which are a bitch to put in!!!).

A funny story about the two little wood and brass rail shelves here, the one that sits behind the passenger front seat I bought years ago from I don't remember. Several years later I was in Goodwill and found two smaller shelves of the exact same design.

All three are finally getting mounted in the bus.
