      Nice brass hardware there, Trunkman! I wish there was more brass on mine, that I'm refurbishing now, but only area is the little round lock mech and two brats on either side of it. Well I let time slip away yesterday and made huge headway but still have a ways to go yet. Check it out when you get a minute.
