new video up!/ 55 300/ decklid / doors/ rocker patch

lining up these 50's cars are really becoming a breeze for me (thanks to Yoda) as long as I accept the fact that there are no rules in getting them to line up-lol
So true. Anyhow, here's video of me lining up the decklid, doing final touches to a hammered door, and a little rust patch on a rocker.

I've already had a few videos on this car in a row so I might switch it up and throw in some production work in there on the next vid on jerry rigging a radiator support with a pogo stick, which is something anyone can do at home. Very handy to know for a DIY'er.

Anywho, enjoy and please appreciate cause not everyone gets to film vlogs at their job.

Be very careful with the twisting the door trick! Just one tiny mistake and the wood can fall out with the door slamming shut. So keep your body parts out of the jamb. It is human nature to grab the door as you are doing this so you can keep pressure on the door so the wood doesn't fall out. Pushing with your body against the door is used to twist the top of the door. So while you are doing this you want to be sure you are NOT grabbing the edge of the door and all body parts are not in the jamb. I lost a finger nail doing this, at least I can say it was on a 1969 Shelby GT500 Convertible. That didn't make it feel any better at the time.

Henry, do you have a shrinking tip for that stud gun? There should be no reason having all those sparks flying.

lost the tip and not willing to bring my own from home. It works fine and just as good if you do baby shrinks. Is this another safety lesson?

It also is burning little pits in the metal, just kinda funky. And yes safety is also an issue. You can make all the fun you want out of that like a big tough man but watching safety just makes sense. It often takes seconds and it saves possible years in the end, it just makes sense.

I will continue to warn others on safety issues because I care about you guys, yes even you.
