Subject: [CR] Revived Ron Cooper


I offered a Ron Cooper for sale some months ago; no takers. So, I decided to restore it.

If you go to http://www.photobucket.com/louisgate you can see the album called "original" as it was (select from "albums" menu) and the album called "revived" as it is now. I think it is coming along nicely. I am doing it as sort of a randonneur with as few Italian parts as possible.

The re-paint was by Hill Clarke at Airglow in Georgia. Strip, repair dent, prime, paint, artwork, decals, pinstriping, clearcoat = $595. I think Hill did a great job. No shipping to California from Florida and back. Just don't take his time commitments too seriously.

What y'all think?
