Another zenith came in today , the veneer on the top was shot so I replaced it and will do a full refinish on this set, should be a dandy when its done. 6 volt power will come from wind, the owner bought a zenith wind charger and getting it fixed to hook on this tombstone. It finished now, sure looks nice.

I bought some different grill cloth patterns from an auction a while back, its all gone now, wish I had more. If I remember right Kenny Richmond mentioned to me he was going to reproduce this pattern with more copper color in it than what he had before. Lets hope it comes out soon along with some other patterns he's working on.

That is what Kenny told me as well...i think he said he expected to have it in the next 60 days.
