thanks. I'm still a rook with about 6 years under my belt but am learning and am always open to newer and better ways. The real struggle is that when you figure out that trying to be the best you can be entails longer metal work time and you have a boss that's always trying to cut corners the positive side is that you can use that as a way to better yourself to be more efficient. An example is with the shrinking disk. I'd like to use it more but time doesn't allow so I only use it where it's absolutely needed, and by doing that I'm still cutting time off cause if I don't shrink those areas where it's absolutely needed than I create more bodywork. Then there's those times where the boss just doesn't want to give me time at all and unfortunately that's when the pic hammer comes out. ahhaha

that's a great idea. The Mustang I'm currently restoring is like my practice project too. Unfortunately my best welding work was on other people's cars and the learning curve was on my own car, but that's ok. It's like a stepping stone restoration and only has an inline 6. Will probably sell for a split bumper camaro project at a later time. Charger's are awesome. Wish I had one of those.

I'm all mopar....I bought that 68 charger for $300 back in 92.Well,did some trading.traded my 69 coronet 440 for 82 Tbird and traded the tbird for the charger.I only payed $300 for the coronet so I got the charger really cheap....He was asking $1000 for it.But to own a 68 charger when your 17 was just awesome for me cuz it is my dream car minus being a R/T Hemi 4 speed but its close enough for me.
