Grape is home as of today and happy to be here. Few things to do but nothing serious. It was done on the 5th but had to many things going on that day to go get it since it was my 60th birthday. Had fun....

Mini-Grape is done and running. Put new motors in it but sometimes it's best to just keep the old stuff if it's working. Might change those back out. Grandkids should be pretty happy I hope. Might have to start showing this one too.

Well, couldn't leave it like it is....took the wheel covers and tail pipes off for a silvery/chrome finish and I also took the light lenses off to have them tinted. Why can't I leave this thing alone???? I need the real Grape back in my garage I think. Tomorrow or Thursday for him I hope.

Oh yeah, forgot to add that the final piece of the puzzle has been installed on the real Grape today too.

Seriously?  Are you implying that Grape is now "done?" 

As in "complete" "finished" and "nothing more to add?"

Done....no, never done. I meant done with classic for a while. I do have to install what I took off when he went in. That will take a few days I'm sure. He is back home and in the garage again too.

 

Tim, that little V8 would fit right in where it needs to go. That is sooooo cool.

Yes I have. Not quite done yet either. Hopefully everything will be 100% after this week. We'll need to get a photo session going to have both there.

Ha Ha, for sure. I can't wait to see the finished product.

It starts out as grey, then something just happens. I can't explain it. It must be like the 12th wonder or something.

 

Finally today I was able to get them together. Big and little in 1 place. They both look very good together and like they belong. Big Grape doesn't have any spoilers on him at the moment as the rear one is being a major pain. Wants to lift on the sides all the time. I'm working on a plan B for it and the front one isn't going on until the butt looks good again.

 

But here they are together.
