Well It has been awhile since I updated folks on the old NK Thought I would let folks know how it is coming. The 1800 I got was hit in the front, but was generally rust free. So I decided to do a nose transplant from the other rusty car I have, as its nose and front fenders had been replaced.

Finally got it all ready to paint and after a failed attempt by me, my friend Matt who is a pro, sprayed it for me this past weekend. We are very excited since now I can get on to putting it all together. It has come a long way in the last year and a half.

Now if I can just find those instructions that came with the car………..

Hi Mike - as mentioned in email I'll try and grab some shots of your Anglo/French doppelganger - Alex's freshly repainted NK in turf. Looks great - awesome job on the nose.
