suffice to say, being only 31 with my entire life ahead of me, and being a biologist with a God-fearing respect of what these chemicals can do to my body, the last thing I want is to be 55 and get some kind of cancer, and then it will always be in the back of my mind...'was I not careful enough as a kid out there playing with my cars?'

So I use lots of protection. Eyes, ears, face, lungs, skin, whatever the need, I have a wall and cabinet that is just PPC materials.

If only we had known of these dangers when we were young. Many of us "old timers" were doing brake jobs back when the linings were asbestos and never knew, or thought, about lung contamination. I've been doing automotive work of various sorts for 45 years ( brake work, bondo sanding, painting, welding, grinding, etc) and now wonder when the "time will come" for all my ignorance/stupidity to kick in...

There are welding specific respirators. Now, does the painting one work even better and all the different ones are only marketing BS for sale? I don't know, but I don't take the chance and use a welding respirator while welding and a paint respirator while painting.

Life is too short, I am going to do everything I can to prolong it.

it's a carbon filter to filter organic vapors...same thing as a paint respirator!!! welding respirators are just smaller. And paint respirators have more capacity.

Also, the carbon is constantly being activated as it's in contact with air. I keep mine sealed in a bag at all times when not in use. If you just hang it up on a wall in your shop and let all the carbon be completely activated, it's not going to do you much good.

Well, we actually worked on the car for a while today.

I heated the convertible A pillar supports and formed them to the floor pan,





Then I welded the assemblies solid.



Shimmed the a pillars and bolted everything down tight.

Look Ma. No jacks under my cowl! As Brian would say, WAHOO!

Thanks guys. Tomorrow I will be going to a car show at a Buddies church and then to the Funeral home for a friend that never recovered from heart surgery.

I hope to build the LH inner rocker panel next and the RH #2 body mount and then we can start to build some floor pans.

John

I remember you telling us about that surgery John, so sorry to hear that. Thought and prayers are with your friend's family and your's.

It's always tough, I've had a few friends pass away in the last few years, guys that I grew up with and it's always tough.

All the best John
Ray
