Thanks Mike, it is one of the advantages of the early 20s, they use standard 1 ton GMC wheels so we have a bit of the choice.

First photos of Bella totally in her new base coat.





Its not very clear but that also means the new lower front valance is fully installed and the new insulated ceramic roof coat also in place. Also the first proper look at the new wheels.

Three weeks to the 'Get Together' as we are pretty much exactly on schedule.

Airstream did a good job on that color combination

When do they anticipate it being out of paint?

Unfortunately only the week before the Get Together so I'm not going to get any chance to get some miles on her before heading off - this is going to be nerve racking!

Ouch, that's cutting it close

You better have AS NE start filling the gas tank now so it will be full by the time you pick her up

This is suppose just to be the base coat so we are really looking forward to seeing the top coats and body line trim back in place

Thanks Nick

Looking forward to meeting up with some of the European 250/Argosy 24 guys when we get back to the UK permanently.
