  5. Thank you all!

    Bob the circle on the steering post is a windscreen (bug catcher), its glass with a partial frame on the sides. It was common on a lot of “raceabouts” of that era. The Mercer was another car that had one.

    I really do enjoy doing these, but find it difficult to get consistent results from picture to picture. Is it me or does everyone have this problem?

    Thanx

  8. It looks like what would be called these days... A windscreen...:biggrin:...
    Just a little smaller version... Its mounted just in front of the steering wheel for the driver only...

    Hey Fred ... Nice job... Looks clean and not over done...
