so now he's doing it (going to the class) on his own, but I still have to poke him with a pointy stick, to make sure he keeps at it
Well we had some more poking dad today, he is getting to be kinda cranky about going to classes etc.
In fact I am posting from crazy old people exercise class right now

But its easy to remind myself that I no longer work for a company where so much BS goes on that I loose sleep at night, and I no longer work for a company that fires employees who get injured on THEIR OWN time.

Tonight I cleaned up the front door sills in preparation for the floor install. I hadn't noticed it before, but the door sill is pretty much a straight line so I think I can break the sheet metal at a increasingly deep 90 toward the front and lap it over on top of the rail to retain the strength. Then I can just lay the flat panel of that side from the rail to the tunnel, and seam the two on the rail. Doing it in two pieces will be a lot better to tackle for my limited skills and easier to work with. I made up the patterns for the flat pieces and will do the patterns from the sill to the rails tomorrow. Not any progress to look at, but necessary. Bob

Oh heck yes that's progress! No different than painting something or making a single weld. It is a necessary step towards completion, PERIOD.

I say ANYTHING that moves me in that direction is worth my five minutes.
And I'll pat myself on the back for it!

X2 on that.

I started bucking up my hood and this appears as nothing much but is also another step forward.

Tonight I made the other two patterns for the floor panels by the front doors. I folded them just like I will need to break the sheet metal and it helped me to get a real good handle on how to proceed. I could also check for the right height to ensure a flat floor. I think that I might even make them in one piece for each side now, (I was going to do it in two pieces each side). Yes, deadbodyman my next step is to NOT FORGET TO MEASURE AND PLAN FOR THE CROSS BRACES AND THE SEAT MOUNTS. Seriously, thanks to many of you guys for the terrific info and the support! It certainly makes it all more enjoyable. Helps to keep me after it, also.

Matt, it won't be long that rust will have packed it's bags and moved out of town!

Yep Street, seeing progress, even if it isn't on my car gets me pumped up too!

Tonight was a real 5 minute night, well, maybe ten or fifteen. I masked off and painted the silver portions of the park lamp bezels and then got in the house and crashed on the couch. Tomorrow I will be able to complete the park lamps finally.
My Gran Sport emblem has a broken stud so i am going to have to figure out a way to hold it. My brother gave me a good idea in that I can using a die thread what is left of the stud and then screw onto it one of those deep nuts. Then screw a machine screw into the nut holding it. I have a VERY good hardware store, if they don't have what I need I doubt anyone does. So tomorrow that will be one thing I need to do, get over there and see what they have.

Brian
