With the expertise of Allan, Stagg, and Curfman the engine for 6022 is 99% back together. I am waiting for a gasket, freeze plug, and carb rebuild kit. The rear main seal and flywheel also need to be installed. We replaced rings, bearings, and anything else that looked suspect.

Work continues on the small stuff. Buying needed parts and restoring ones already on hand. The body waits until we are ready to begin hacking and welding. I should have most of the small stuff ready to install once the body is done. That will save a bunch of time. Though a mutt is simple, the process of cleaning and painting the bits and pieces takes a while. The dash panel is still the big wildcard. I thought I had one and it fell through. Guy hasn't started on a repro dash/cowl yet. No worries though. Everything will come together just as it has been thus far.

Mutt 6022 was brought over to Allan's just over a year ago. All four fenders have been replaced and the dash/cowl panel has been removed. The replacement dash/cowl should be ready soon. Once it's in place the body work will be done. Everything else will be ready to assemble and finish the job.

Some updates: 



This happened!  What is this you ask? 







Only the rosetta stone of mutt repair.  http://www.m151bodypanels.com was good enough to send David the first of the newly minted replacement dash panels for the M151A2.

That almost feels like cheating.
