customer brought this down from Connecticut. Looking at a full restoration and gilding. Not sure yet if I'll be doing a French polish or piano gloss lacquer finish. Strings have been removed by the customer. What is nice i just finished up a number of porcelain projects that opened up a good time slot to tackle this job.

Added a little bling to the bike 23.5 ct gold leaf. Bumper and air filter cap.

Watched you on youtube Dave with the harp. All I can say is WOW! I'm glad it's you and not me fixing that thing. I'd have no idea where to start! Can't wait to see when you are finished with it. If you get a chance please do updates on your youtube channel please.

You are really making it come alive. I suppose once they pick it up they'll take it some where else to get strung up and tuned and you'll never see it again, but it would be cool to see it all put together and hear it play.
