Hi Bill,
Looking GOOD. Will you you be showing this boat next summer?
Did you sell your other Meteor?

Way to go Bill.
Your 1956 Lone Star Meteor Looks Beautiful. I have questions like where did you find all of the metal fairings, as around the front lights and the tail lights, and Air scoops on the aft cover?
I am in the process of restoring my 1956 Lone Star Meteor Black and Red and I am missing the failings around the left front headlight. and The two below the fins in the back. I haven't been able to find the tail lights and asking if you know where they can be found or custom built?

I'll be posting pictures in the near future.

Also need a vintage steering wheel if you know where to find.
