Yeah, I need to get that other top out and see how bad it is, but I really think I will just be lengthening this one. I did it forty years ago I guess I can do it again.

That looks great Brian, I think you nailed it, just the right amount.

Thanks, I didn't want to go too far. The half inch less on the chop makes a big difference.

Please, go get a pen thingie (I forget the name too) for that! Do it TODAY! I had a very dear friend, a sweetheart of sweethearts die from a similar thing, with the prescription for that pen thingie in her purse! Don't let something so easy not happen and cause you harm! GET IT TODAY! Get a couple, have one in your home and in your car and your wife's car. You know you won't always have it in your pocket so put them where you can get to anywhere you are. DO IT TODAY!

Brian

Darn! I had it figured that it was going to end up as the Conning Tower for your submarine! It just goes to show you that you just can't jump to conclusions!

This last body mount is about to kick my butt. Have way too much time in it. Oh well, I am getting there.

Went to the Sonic tonight. I will deal with this another day.

The "pen thing" is called an "Epi-pen".
Get it.
Get several.
In the house, in your car, in your wife's car, in your shop, anywhere you spend time and/or can get at it very quickly
Before we will wind up reading about what a great guy you WERE!

We are serious! It just tears my heart out thinking about my friend, she was such a sweetie. Her husband was destroyed, it was a week before her 39th birthday. I am able to visit her grave once in a while it's right here in town. She was a pediatric nurse specializing in life flight! What a princess she was. The prescription was in her purse for the Epi-pen!

Today was a short day for me out in the garage, I got my butt kicked at work today. But it's caught up so tomorrow should be a breeze. But tonight at home I got some braces cut so I can weld them in to the top and support the back half when I cut the front half free to lengthen it.

I also got my MasterCoat rust remover......we will see!
