    Sweet score. Love the powder blue with patina. I'd flat clear it, maybe paint the wheels to match or keep black and keep the white walls.

    My vote is with patina as well. That thing is freakin clean. I think it would look good with matching painted wheels with the white walls.:headbang:

    Nah just get some bailing wire and it should all be fixed up, might need duct tape too. Never know. Glad she wasn't hurt and bummer on the motor.

    You might have to swap the linkage off a truck wih a 20r.. Stock linkage worked for my weber, but I have a 20r.
