Bob Shores Silver Eagle #189. Don't know when it will be done. Doe's not matter much when. It's the doing that counts. It is to be sure the most interesting, gratifying, relaxing, rewarding work I have ever done.  

   

Well I only get home 5 days a month, so it is slow going for me. However I have the time of my life out in, "The Shop", and so time stands still for me and I have gone out there at 5am and the day has passed, the night slipped away and the sun rising as I sweep the chips up and give it, and me a rest.

Update to work in progress so folks will not think I gave up. Started 4 years ago and worked on the 4 to 5 days a month I'm home. Lots of errors but I thinks she gona run. Got the Carb, Exhaust and ignition to go and a few other things so I can see the light at the end of the bore,(tunnel).
