Kelly, There is no doubt in my mind all of us get as much pleasure out of sharing what we do as other people get from looking at it.

John, I love following your thread, however, even though I am a firm believer in moderation, I would be more than happy to ensure that your cooler stays more on the empty side...and in the gesture of friendship, replace any "wobbly pop" with a Canadian version...I have had some experience with it's US counterpart and I'm fairly sure that a genuine Northern Molson's product would last longer, even if the recipient didn't....LOL.

If the Ego must be fed...shouldn't we water it as well...LOL

The Roadster, wife, and empty cooler just got back from the Shades. We had great weather and it was a good 4 days. Hopefully I will get back to the basement for a while tomorrow. I parked beside this little "motivator" at the motel.

Ok, I did finish getting the cowl square on the frame and also marked the inner rocker to get welded in. Hopefully will have something to take pictures of in the next day or so.

Oh, I did buy a really nice glove box lid off of Ebay. It came today.

LOL. The seller said he had a key but said he would not sell it. He offered to have a duplicate made for 10 dollars. I passed but may have made a mistake.

If I can find a speaker grill and ashtray that is this nice I will really be excited. It was 50 dollars with free shipping. You could not plate one for that. On the other hand at 50 dollars a piece it does add up.

The number 2 body mount is ready to weld in but I have run out of Argon/CO2. Will have to go to the welding supply tomorrow. I did get the LH rocker tacked in before it died though.

Also, scoured the mount one more time with Rust-Mort and washed it good before painting the inside of it.

Since I can't weld I ground out the spot welds to the floor hump. Also, it occurred to me that the seat brace sandwiches between the floor pan and the body mount so I will need to make the 3rd row body mounts before I make the front pans. I could fabricate the hump I guess.

Here is the second row mount ready to weld.


In these pictures you can see all the offsets for the seat mounts and see why it was so challenging to form these ends.

John, you are beyond a doubt on of the best craftsman I've seen...patience, detail and perfection...and yes John, I follow every post and trust me, I'm learning and I thank you for that...When you went to the car show for a couple of days I was going through withdrawal...thanks for the fix...LOL

Love the fact that your even using square mounting nuts...beautiful...when it's done, I think people would be hard pressed to know that all that work was done...and that is craftsmanship.

Kudos my friend.

Ray
