    I realized just a couple of days before leaving to take the parts to the chrome shop that I had to add provisions for some sun visors that I bought from an online MG parts place. They are tinted Lexan and look like very proper British sports car parts.

    I had to weld a small strip on the back of the upper windshield channel for the mounting screws. Of course, the welding caused channel to warp where the heat was even though it was clamped down. I had to apply some heat to the opposite side to shrink the metal and get it to straighten out. Luckily, that did the trick and it came out OK. I cropped out this pic to show where I had to shrink it. That is the blue marks just below the gutter.



    In the pics, the visors still have the brown protective paper stuck to them. They are actually heavily tinted.









    I just had to repost the picture of the original 100-6 frame. Mine is not an exact copy, but it's pretty darn close.

    As you read this, the parts are at a chrome shop in Tennessee about a 7 hour drive from my house. After all the time I put into them, there was no way I would trust them to UPS or Fedex. Looks like 5-8 weeks before I can pick them up. I hope that doesn't turn into 10-16, but it's not like I don't have plenty of other work to do even if they did.

    Oh boy my heart was sinking when I read that word... warp!

    But you save the day, all's well and about to get better I think.

    Thanks 34. Yeah, that was an "Oh, S#%^&" moment when I saw the bow. I was actually going to put it in my press and attempt to straighten it when I thought about trying to shrink the opposite side. I guess an old dog can learn new tricks!

    Wow, great work on that frame. it sure looks nice. I bet it will look a lot better in 5-8 weeks though. Here's hoping it is only 5 weeks for ya.
