You darn tootin it's ok! And I'll bet he's tootin too.

I got a little done on the transfer seat, the bracket in the rocker is all done as well as the rocker mod. Tomorrow the paint will be dry and I'll install that and all I have is the final bit of work on the seat frame. It's looking good, sorry no photos, camera was in the house and it's raining didn't feel like running in.

Can't think of a better thing to take you away from the project

Brian was it not you that said if I had no pictures there was no reason for anyone to believe I did anything? You had better buy an umbrella.

Vacuumed the pool, trimmed one of the hedges, went and got some more premium gas for making 2-stroke mix for the hedge trimmer, then it started raining.

You don't know how true that is! When I was dancing with my oldest daughter at her wedding I looked over at my youngest, she was 9 at the time and I thought as fast as time as flown with the one I was dancing with, when will I be at her wedding, next week? THAT is how time flies. Enjoy every minute!

got the R door, R fender, R rocker in primer last night. I was kind of bummed to realize I didn't even fully sand a patch of mud low on the rocker. Was planning on only priming that area once but I guess I'll have to spot some primer on the rocker later. The door and fender don't need any more primer but will let them sit and kick for a week or two. Also realized the after market L quarter that was installed had an all too common issue...the stamp caused the middle of the wheel crown to be caved in. You can't always find this with guide coat and sometimes it's hard to find with your hands so it's best to use a straight edge for this area. You really need to access this area BEFORE you put mud on it, but at the time I didn't think about it.

Moral of the story, guide coat is just part of the equation. If anything, I'd say a good hand feel and using it when needed is just as important if not more important than guide coat. If this wasn't the case then guide coat would show you everything on hoods and decklids but to get them truly straight you need to put the guide coat to the side and rub your hands all over it in multiple directions. Some guys think it's not an exact science but neither is guide coat, otherwise it would show you the hood/deck isn't straight. The best handtool is the hand itself in body work.

Got a new baby.

Drove up to Nelsonville, Oh to get our new papillon puppy. She is only five weeks and tree days old, but he mommy's milk dried up, so we got her early.

I'll tell you what I've been working on...getting off the computer and getting stuff done! Can't get anything done playing on the computer. There's a limited amount of time we are each given and I'll be damned if I'm spending it on the computer living in a virtual world that doesn't really exist or matter. I think we all should spend less time on the computer and more time in our garage or spending time with family. Just a thought. Enjoy your day, whatever it is you're doing. Wait a minute...I'm on the computer right now-damn it!

That is going to be first class Brian. I love the way you can put the sill plate back on and make it go away too. Thanks for the pictures.

I can officially can say Woo Hoo. My doors are shiny. They buffed out very nicely. It will be good to put the old girl back together.
