I am so thrilled that I still have my MIG from my shop, it is a nice 220 amp and does everything I could want.

After all the metal fab work my pvc looks simple but it has to be done.this material that john recommended works MUCH better than what I had, that is where knowledge and experience stands out Thanks John,
also changed pattern on doors and molded them to match pattern of seats.

I'm finishing up on the repairs to a '96 Chevy S-10 that was purchased at a police auction for $500 by the friend f the guy I purchased it from. My friend did the work on the motor (about $500) and I've done the other repairs, new battery box, window crank handle, new headliner, general rust abatement, new hood latch cable, fixed broken seat springs, repaired rust hole sin driver's floor and finally today, replacement carpet and re-install interior. It has about 180,000 miles on it, but other than hose minor things, is in surprisingly good condition. Details in Journal entry #21.
Then a few minor electrical repairs on the '54 Desoto Firedome.

Not much happening here. Still waiting for the machine shop to finish the new engine. Did some clean up of my work area and cleaned some parts that will be reused on the engine and car. Hope to see the new engine completed mid week, if they're on schedule!
Picked up a cross ram for the 350 Chevy, and will be changing to that and not using the Pro Dominator tunnel ram when it goes together. I'll use the same carbs, and add a balance tube to the cross ram to keep the tuning simpler.

|tech69||it's tough cause you gotta be productive while going through the learning curve but the good thing is I'm a lot more productive than the old painter who got paid a lot more and my buffing is much better. Just need to fine tune my painting skills. Being able to lay down clear is just the foot in the door, now it's time to work out some kinks, learn to mask more efficiently and better, burn in those clears that don't need any rubbing, get better matching skills, and learning pearls. I'm fortunate the old painter was lazy and just picked the standard paint formula for everything. It gives me room to learn. I think I'm gonna be pretty good at this but there's a few more mistakes I have to make first, thankfully they've been ones that haven't set us too far back.|

Thank you for sharing your learning curve. You are showing me things I have never been exposed to.

I bent up a sample rocker panel this morning.
Looks like this will work.
I then hit it on the Baileigh power shrinker and give it some curve.
