Re: Clarence 2 door 62 saloon

Looks like a great little project you have there , unlike me ,you have plenty of time to work on it , you’ll have it all done before you know it , remember safety first , plenty of measurements and if your unsure always ask and also enjoy yourself learning new skills , good luck in your Morris quest
