We are finally getting good T weather. We put a few hundred miles on the 24 this week. I have made a few adjustments on it, but the only problem was a pin hole in the float. It was a good thing I had a shut off valve on it or I would have lost a tank of gas. Taking the carburetor apart I found mud in the bottom of the float bowl. I drained the shut off valve at the tank and found a lot of grit in it. The tank looked perfect inside when I installed it. I'll drain it after each days run until it comes out clean. I'm also carrying a spare float and valve just in case.

Thanks Jack, I really appreciate your compliment. I bought the top from Classtique before Elizabeth sold out to Mike. I had it stored until last fall when I finished up this car. I did have major problems with it, and contacted Mike for advise. Even though I didn't purchase it from him, he was more than helpful even to the point of sending me extra hardware at no charge. He also told me to contact Elizabeth if I wanted to, and she would be more than happy to help also. I contacted her and she was extremely helpful. I used advise I received from both of them, plus some things I thought of. Like anything else, if I was to do it again, I could make some improvements on it. The customer service I received from Classtique is unbelievable. They certainly go beyond the extra mile to satisfy a customer.

Hehehe, I've had your post open since yesterday and didn't even see the top! It is nice!
I've just been drooling over your great looking Touring. It is a handsome car.
Your talk about Classtique makes me anxious to place a couple orders with them; unless the wife wants a short road trip to place them in person.
Nice post Dan!

Thanks Duey, glad you enjoyed it. Classtique will treat you well.
