You are making it look easy... I know better!      You have a source for seat and back rest cushions?

Wheeew…..not too many "easy" things on a half track. ;)

Got a quote from Beechwood a while back on cushions.
Have a few miscellaneous pieces.
You have a good source?
Somebody posted about a place called All American Mfg and Canvas Works.
They sounded interesting.

Keith,

Im so jealous of your track! You are really doing a great job.  Beautiful craftsmanship with attention to detail.  Starting to wish mine was a bolt by bolt restoration!

Working on the rear armor.
Fabricating the flat connectors and the angle iron supports.
Got the lockers bolted in.
Slow but steady.....
