He really made a lot of progress and by the time we kocked of he was doing some really nice tacks and but welded a couple of pieces of 18ga pieces together. The next time he makes a brace he will get to weld it together himself.

While he was welding I was making a template for the cowl mount and started making a replacement piece but not much to look at yet.

Hopefully I will get a little done while the girls are here. Time will tell. Glad to have them anyway.

Well today I cut the front half of the roof off to lengthen it. I removed the gutters from the donor roof to use later, but that and the rear window are all I am going to use, there is just too much rust on that roof, I don't need anymore work just to eliminate a little strip of metal.





I cut out the rear window of the donor for use on the cab.



It's a shame I left it out darn it, but that's life, it's pretty rusty.

How about this dent that was filled with lead, look at the shadow under the ruler!



I melted it out..



I weighed it and it was over 2 lbs! LOL

Oh it's killer to let them be a part of it, I don't care if it's tightening one bolt. But when you are welding be sure to tie their hands behind their back! I have had more than one kid quickly grab something I have welded!

It's going to be AT the belt line just like the corner windows, they will match. I am also thinking about widening it as well, check out my build thread.

Don't complain, that is the way it should be, store should be closed on Sunday, let people spend time with their families. I wish everything was closed on Sunday around here. My God, 24 hours a day 7 days a week and many are open 365 days a year! Open on Christmas and all!

I was in Ozark Arkansas one time on vacation and I went to a store a little after 6pm on a week night and it was closed. I sat there in the parking lot and was so happy, I was so damn happy that there was a place on earth that closed like in the old days.

Now you done it....grand kids and hotrods...Time for a story.
my grandson was over one day looking over my car in the driveway and asked :does it run? I said yeah, do you want to hear it? when I fired it up he ran into the house crying(open headers) he was about 6yr old then and never showed an intrest in hotrods again
I have two other grand kids(girls) that spend every other weekend here.they love doing things with grandpa like fishing and helping me work on the car.

That day,when my grandson ran into the house my grand daughter 3yrold at the time came running out hopped in the running car and said can we go for a ride pawpaw?she was still in her jammies (first pic)...It just goes to show hotrods are in the blood or they arent....and you never know where you'll find one...
another weekend I woke up early and was out in the driveway working on the car and miyah asked where I was she came out to keep me company and brought all her favorite books so she could read to me while I was working.(she cant read but she can sure tell a story...I dont know where she got THAT from. any ways it wasnt long before she was more interested in what I was doing than the books and she stayed out there with me all day (after she changed her Jammies)
these little ladies are going to be some kind of heart breakers they've got me completely wraped around their fingers,I'm completely powerless against their charms .I wouldnt have it any other way...

Well that was Miyah,,,Then theres Kaylah....she dont like getting dirty like her sister but she loves to watch and spend time hanging out with her pawpaw.
She's a hotrodder too but in a different way.insted of doing her own work on her car she'll probably have one(or all) of the ten guys hanging around do it all for her...she wont even go outside until shes all dolled up.
Now I know what your thinking every boys dream is to have a girlfriend that loves and has a hot car,but Ya'll can forget it, I made them promise not to start dating untill they're 25yr old. so keep your boys at home and save them the heartache....
