I know what you mean. Got my Poncho but have the donor car in the garage for the winter, to rip out what I need off of it. Plan on finally starting the Poncho this spring I should have my funds setup by then. Sure has taken a while to get this far with the economy like this.
I keep poking in on this thread to see how your doing, its a little "pick me up" for me. Your a lot further along than I am.
Thanks

Thanks....
I know what you mean about the funds..
I have never seen days like these... But I won't stop believing for some good days to come.....

When I build and post these threads it's to help motivate people to believe in them self's to be able to over come their fears of trying something new..... I fight this myself and no one know's that but me.... Well now the world know's.. I'm glade to hear when people say I motivate them with what I show here....... That give's me some fuel also..... Sorry I haven't been able to do more and post more.... Believe me... It's killing me right now.... To just sit back and wait.. But it will come.... Again thanks to you guy's too..... Y'all keep the fire burning inside of me,,, Even when I start to see it go out... Thanks..

Well I figured I would make the best of the day working on my car today...Had to blow all the rust and dust off it...

But I did come up with some light stands that should be nice when the frame is all done up... Not done yet,, But y'all may get the idea....

Stands look good and we all know the cat will be out of the bag soon enough.

Randy if you have not welded those pieces on yet, you might want to take a ball mill and mill the end that the headlight sits on. I believe the headlights have round heads they sit on, so you can adjust them, and the stands should be round also as then they will match up.
