Sunrise Point… popular Mt. Rainier overlook. Except on the foggy day we were there last fall.
Mamiya 645, 45mm lens shooting Tri-X 400.
Frame cleaned and repainted, wheels cleaned of as much pitting and rust as possible, fork lowers scrubbed, polished, and filled with fresh fork oil, all parts cleaned and ready to be put back on once wiring is finished. Need to re-jet the carbs, make a headlight bracket, side covers, inner fender, and a bracket to mount the ignition switch before reassembly can start…. cutting the rear of the frame and welding on a hoop is on my mind though.
Progress has been taken slow almost on purpose. Last week ordered a tool to do factory style crimps to help ease the wiring process… it was well worth the money and I would highly recommend it with a connector kit from Vintage Connections. Factory style “bullet” connectors on the left replacing the crummy universal style crimps the last owner used.
