1971BB427 Today is the official end of the Wed. night cruise and drags at Beaches. I'm guessing the turnout will be as it usually is on the last night, about 1500 cars. Weather is a bit cool at high 60's, but that allows the cars that run hot to come out without worry. Spent the morning cleaning up one of my cars to drive out, and we'll probably stay late to enjoy the last one this year!

Brian, I'm on board with you! After spending half of the summer doing the kitchen, and one bedroom, I still have to finish the dining room soon! My wife gave us both a break, so we could enjoy some summer, but I'll be back at it soon with fall arrival.

Maybe we could talk him into posting some pictures if he goes to work on it.

Some of us are not as good as Brian about doing the things that need to be done verses the things we like to do......Myself in particular.

Thanks for the tip, I hope it looks good in that regard I spent a bunch of time with cardboard templates. And in fact WAY too much time and even cut out plywood nailed it up then ripped it out and threw it away because it wasn't to my liking. I did end up with something that is pretty nice as I was very anal about it the second time around.

MARTINSR I brought home a vacuum sanding system from work for my mud work in my house, MAN this thing is awesome for stuff like this! I hate using it when working on cars, you are wrestling with it and it is a pain. But for this that doesn't have to be perfect, it is AWESOME!

I went to plastic, had it done in minutes.
