Let me guess.
Is it a new bathroom?
A new Kitchen?

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God!

Can't.

https://autorama.com/awards/ridler-award/
The vehicle must make its first public showing at the Detroit Autorama. Showing the vehicle (or any unique part of the entry, i.e. frame, engine or body) at any indoor or outdoor show will make it ineligible for contention. Please feel free to contact us with questions about eligibility.
Except as otherwise set forth below, no photos or comments of the contending vehicle are to be posted on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, MySpace or any other social media website or internet comment board or blog or sent via text message or email. Friends, family and other third parties with access to the vehicle must be advised of the above statement and the Ridler Award Qualifications.
Photos, artist renderings or videos showing the vehicle in a completed state or in finish color are not allowed, and will result in disqualification. All decisions concerning prior exposure and eligibility for the Ridler Award will be determined by the Michigan Hot Rod Association and Championship Auto Shows, Inc.

It's good to see you working on it again. I bet it feels good to have it running and drivable after all this time.
