Have you ever thought of teaching those of us less skilled, less talented, less "driven" HOW TO DO THIS STUFF?

Yes I can take welding courses locally. Yes I can follow C-Boy's "How to" thread. Yes I can build my own engines. I will likely never learn how to paint something (unless I use a brush! )

I will never be able to do the total package the way you do. I lack the imagination, the vision, the drive and the way to stick to it and see it all the way through.

I have several "stalled" projects because I can't seem to prioritize them - to say "OK - I'm gonna do THIS car first" or even to (assume that do decide to concentrate on only one project) say that "I have to THIS step before I can do THAT one". (even if I knew how to do the next step)

I need help and I strongly suspect that a lot of other guys on here also have specific skills but do not have "the total package" the way you do.

Thanks Mr.Dave.... I lack a lot myself... People that are very close to me know all about that side of me..... I once was asked By a close friend of mine about me doing a Hotrod school.... I would love too.... But I don't think I will ever be able to do it now being disabled..... The funds isn't there..... If I had them... I would most likely go for it.... I love showing people how I do it..... I have many older friends here that told me I would work for you free just to learn from you.... I really don't understand what everyone see's in me.... I don't see it as any magic or something..... Just the will to push the limit's.. I asked when I do my yearly thing for the High school here if I did a school how many would come.... Everyone lift their hands..... So I think it would be a cool thing to do.... I love working with the kids..... You can see the WANT in some of their eye's..... When My doctor's disabled me.... I lost everything when I lost my job..... Money, My leadership of my home, And a lot of my want to succeed in life.... With the way money is now,, It really push's me down a lot.... Everyday it feel's like a part of me is dieing.... Really don't know what's in the last chapter's of my life.... I only take it day by day now....

When I left Mom's house to be a man.... I NEVER had to depend on anyone..... Take part of your life away and you see just how fast things can change..So Looking at how many people look up to you, when you look down on yourself seem weird..So when I say I'm Just a hotrodder like everyone else... I mean that...My friend Speedydeedy always get's on me to stand strong and think better of myself... He taught me a lot about life.....

Sorry... I didn't want to lay all this out on this build thread.... But it will let everyone know just what I feel inside.... It may help you understand this guy's thinking... Thanks Everyone... Randy..

Hi there Randy, see you have been hard at it, fight the good fight buddy:-) I am watching closely how you go about that seat I may copy it, I am not happy with the two buckets I however I had decided to make one can't be that hard! also where can I get a wiring diagram for a scratch built car? check out the pressing I made for the tailgate, it's on my journal, keep up the good work off to light the BBQ summer here

Hey Mr.Bruce !!!! It's always great to hear from you.... I was starting to wonder How your doing on the other side of the world...That willys must be keeping you really busy..

I been fighting the hard battle for sure.... I need to put all that energy in my cars instead of all the battles..

I'm sure you will do just find on them seat's... Everything else you done so far is AWESOME !!!!!!

That will be one find willys when your done... Wish I still had mine..

As far as a wiring diagram... I don't have one.... When I do one from scratch it's in my head.... On my willys I installed a EZ-wiring 21 Circuit.. Had everything I needed, Took a couple Hours to install it...Real easy...


Oh !!!! By the way !!! What time will the food be ready....

I will see if I can sneak out...

I could never understand Mother's and father's like that..

It wouldn't pay for me to meet someone like that... Someone would be in trouble... I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND !!!!

I bet he really look's up to you Mr.Bruce.. You made a friend for life right there... And he will never forget you.....

Now!!!! Did I hear you say STEAK'S... BIG STEAK'S !!!!

Your tail gate will look super cool... Look's like a great tool you made for sure...

Doesn't it feel good to help people just for the sake of helping? I help a lot of people also,I just about raised a couple of my cousins kids. The EZ wiring is the way to go. Good quality and everything you need even electric door window and trunk curcuits.Also written about every 6" where it goes.

I wanted to post a crazy thing me and a friend did about 3 week's ago...

I went to a party we had for a good friend... Alot of cars showed up good food.. and a good time with friends.... Well my friend asked me to drive one of his cars home... A t-bucket with a big block Chevy...

I told him,,, SURE I will drive it... Well the funny thing is,,, Here's a picture of me leaving in his T...

Now!!!! Do you see the old police car behind me...That is one of his other cars.... Now you have to picture this...

Picture me leaving in this HOT ROD....OK !!!

He left right behind me.... Now he lived about 10 miles or so from the party.. What do you think we did ????

Well he chased me all the way to his house with the big blue light on and the siren just a blowing away.....

I had to stop at a red light and I was the first in line...... Everyone is looking and pointing behind me,, I was watching for the light and making it look like I was very scared....
Everyone was looking at me with this look on their face... We wasn't at the light very long..... All happen really fast...

So when the light turn green I nailed it a Little
And took off waiving my fist at him... The look on their fast was priceless..

We was laughing so hard when I got to his house.... I made it look like I pulled over at his house and everyone was looking at us like He got him...

Keep in mind... We never got over the speed limit in doing this..

wiring guide

Bruce, I haven't seen your updates for a while. I went to the ez2wire web site and printed out their wiring guide. It uses Gm wire colors , quite a few pages and I followed it when I rewired the 36 pontiac.
