He finished it up on Thurs. and got it over to Ben's where they packed the heck out of it and sent it overnight to the hotel in Richmond.
We got back to the hotel room after the first day on Fri. and the frame was waiting for us.
Getting the bottom bracket installed, and below, the gorgeous Delta brakes!

I used the Pacenti Artisan lugs for the head tube and had a bit more length on the points to work with. I still need to braze on the head tube cable guides after the lugs are polished.
Nice clean fastback seat lug.
The new Ellis double eyelet dropouts. These are 4130 steel,,rather than 17/4 stainless so they can accept chrome.

Just talked to Jason and 2 of the frames for the show are almost done. Hopefully he can squeak out my frame for the vintage Campy parts, but if not, it'll have to wait for the Cirque in June.

At least they're close to being done. Hopefully one more coat of finish tomorrow and they'll be done. I'll take some more photos with the bike mounts as well, and if you're at the show, stop by and see 'em. The bikes on top should be nice too!
