It's all over

Half an hour ago I officially finished the restoration. It has taken me 76 days of more or less continuous work. It's been a long an intense experience combining joy and frustration, doing, undoing, redoing and sometimes overdoing. Many hours have been spent  searching either for  vintage parts or  for small nuts, badgering like-minded friends and strangers alike, researching the web for information or trying to locate second hand dealers,... and now it's over. May the outcome be worth the time, the money and dedication invested but  right now I have a vague feeling of emptiness. So intense has this trip been  that to some extend I regret arriving to the end of the route.
It's now time to submit my work to the audience.
