It was a 1 day only sale and I do get emails for specials every day. I've bought a LOT of stuff there, so it could possibly have been a registered user only deal. The price is back to $849 for me now too....:(

Now what....we gotta talk about YOUR car in YOUR thread again....:P

What flavor shake did you get last night ??

I had a Chocolate one tonight at Smashburger...:D

Oh, yeah, the quarter looks good. Like I didn't expect it too...:confused:

1st....Yea, once in a while. Feeds my ego.

2nd.....Vanilla. I am a simple guy. Those 25 flavors confuse me.

3rd .....Hope you didn't drip it on yourself.

4th....... Thanks. I needed that.

5th.......Wish I could buy a TIG welder but have more urgent things to do with my allowance. :thumbup::):mwink::D

Finished welding the quarter panel seam this afternoon. I struggled some with this one but as always patience is the key. After some picking, planishing and shrinking with an Eastwood stud welder electrode I have it pretty good.

The bottom pinch weld and around the wheel well is till not done but that is the easy part. For now you can stick a fork in me. I'm done. :)

Very nice. Getting the shape of your panels to match the template is the toughest part of the whole project.

Thanks Pugs. I won't be the guy with the clear coated metal finished car but if I can keep the filler to a minimum I will be very pleased.

LOL, I would like it to at least draw a magnet so people don't think I own the world's first fiberglass 53 Chevy Bel Air. :D:):mwink:

Really nice work John! I doubt you'll need much filler!

I agree Pugsy. With a wooden buck you can keep raising the low spots until the entire panel "sits" on the buck.

With a template you can see the shape in one spot but you don't see the way it fits overall. On the other side I had a little twist in the panel and even though the templates looked right when I attempted to weld it in it did not fit and I had to go back and tweak it some more. This one fit good but I had more issues welding it than I did the first one......go figure.:drunk:

John

I will be making a buck for my hood when I get to it for sure. I was always getting the panels correct one way, but not able to tell the other. :drunk: So my whole hood is toast now and will be starting over. Hmm...maybe I can use aluminum when I get to it.....
