like to see one on makeshift primer booth construction, how to set up an air compressor and gun to prime, and how to restore/rebuild the window stuff. (roll up mechanism, channels, etc..). id also like to know how to restore plastic grilles, and maybe even a little comment or two on how to clearance fenders for taller tires (front fender corners).
thanks, HK. you always rock at this stuff.

Thank you Shawn, if we lived closer by I would like to merge your 'glassing skills with my ideas, I think we could give boyds bodies and run for their money. I'm also going to school and quite possibly soon be working two jobs to get a shop open after I get out of school.

Mike, the paintbooth I can do, maby even tonight with a rought diagram done with paint program. The compressor and spray gun will have to wait. I'm going to draw up a diagram on gun cleaning also so I will link them together. The window stuff is pretty tough to do without a visual aid depending on the model because doing a vegue overall how to is pretty useless.

Unstable, fender widening is pretty simple and just basically a patch addtion and some forming so I'll try and do a some what vegue to model how to for you.

4 new how-to's in the KB.
  • Polishing (Dave's request)
  • '28-'39 custom bar grill insert and '33-'34 custom grill. (Kultulz, just the first one, three more coming later)
  • Paint additions (Zonk)
  • Custom starting tips

More to come, type with one hand and can't write for spit so slowly but surely they get typed

now if you'll excuse me i need to hurry up and finish writing something before my pen runs out of ink.

Eddie, reread what you just posted. If I type them, why would I send them to get retyped? If you know something I don't, like typing through osmosis please fill me in, but that made absolutly no sence to me. Mind you I have a fever, but it couldn't have made me that delerious. I'm sure you meant something else, don't know what, but I'm sure you did <img src="graemlins/drunk.gif" border="0" alt="[drunk]" />
