Hot Rod Typewriter
For those of you familiar with this machine you might already have noticed that there is a part missing. The paper feed tray and paper table. This part was left in Troy's truck for about three weeks. As you might imagine my patience was by this time wearing pretty thin. This is really a bit of an understatement, but I will refrain from further comment as I really don't want to risk losing his painting services. I will say that it was worth the wait.
Yesterday I got the last peice I spent the evening carefully putting the Olympia together. The chrome trim went on easier than I expected and I am proud to say that I did not scratch or chip the paint at all in the process.
It still needs a final cleaning, but it looks fantastic.
