Hello and thanks for the invite. New as a member but not new to the website and library. I've been working on a 1960s Owens runabout. Ive done some work on it but I'm nowhere near completion. It wont be a classic restoration but more of a personal renovation. I have a lot of pictures of the work I did so far.

If anyone has any info besides whats on the forums I'd love to hear it.

Know what you mean. I stuck pulling with an '05 Jeep Liberty.
No one knows how much I kick myself for trading my '67 XL convertible for a wood sided station wagon back in '72.
Family kept growing.

UPDATE:

While working on the inside somehow water came though the cover up and ruined the foam and wood I placed.
Because I want to do a real good job I've decided to re-do the inside. Ive pulled everything out and I'm currently preparing to re-do the floor. Haven't put many hours in due to my full time job as a student and my new side job in sales. Got to earn some money for that engine right?

Sorry to hear of the setback. Three steps forward, two steps back. You'll do a great job with that attitude.
Real world kicks the backside once in a while. Keep on pluggin' away.

Awesome project! I am a young and dumb one still, at 22, but I am also a full time student and started in Industrial Automation sales about a year and a half ago. Keep the photos coming, it's nice to see someone like me going through the major projects I will likely start experiencing soon :dry:

Seems like we're in the same boat, GympyHSHS! Do you have a project yet or are you looking for one? And I'm definitely going to keep posting progress pictures.

Thanks your your reply!
