Cool, That makes sense.

Most cars have seams similar to this between the roof and quarter panel and I have wondered numerous times how best to fix it after the lead comes out.

I wondered myself if he would fill them, weld filler strips in them to alleviate the sunken area or what.

Now that we have brought it up Pugsy, what are your plans for the panel joints?

I have not forgotten that I told you we would talk about the stuff I did not use before I got rid of it. That commitment still stands.

John honestly, I'm not asking you for that reason. What ever you have I would be interested in it, but don't think you owe me anything, we change our minds over such a long project, don't sweat it. I actually was just curious wondering what your plans were. But of course when you do let me know and I may have some needs.

LOL, You don't think for one minute the rest of us are feeling sorry for you do you?

That is awesome Pugsy. I envy you having all clean metal to work on. I sure wish there was a place locally where I could have one dipped.

It looks great.

I said, yup .....you wanna hear it? excitedly he said, yeah.....Well it had open headers and when I fired it up it scared him so bad he ran into the house crying just as my 3yr old granddaughter came running out yelling we going for a ride grandpa and jumped in.....shes in the pic above...she loves working with me on my cars.....and I love having her around and hanging out with me....
She is adorable Mike. When my daughter was little she would lay on the floor of the street rod between the radio speakers and listen to fifties rock and roll tapes while I worked on the car. Those were precious times. I miss them.

123pugsy I actually did do something today.

I finished the filter box to go around the explosion proof fan that I installed in the wall yesterday.
