It's killin all right.

I will be applying for building permit soon and there just may be a few delays involved, as I need a variance.

Could be a chance to play during the Christmas break.( I hope)

The truth be told, I bought this thing in May. I'm not exactly setting the world on fire.

Good luck Pugsy. If I learned one thing in my 25 years with the Telephone company it was that I DO NOT WANT TO BUILD A HOUSE. No way, No how, Now time.

I did find a couple of hours today to ruff in the front corner of the door. I have it tacked in place and it seems to be pretty good.

Lots of grinding to do and epoxy prime the inside before I can put the skin on.

Here are a few picks of the front corner going together.

John

Let me tell you my perspective on your progress...

Let's say 100 people bought the same exact car as you on the same day....

90 of them would still be in the back yard, where it got dropped off.

9 more would be in a shop, torn down enough to expose the exact disaster they faced and collecting dust from no drive, skill, or desire.

1 is being methodically restored from nothing, one piece at a time.

It doesn't take a fire, just a slow glowing bed of coals, to cook a steak.

You guys don't know how much I appreciate the positive feedback. It really keeps those coals glowing.

Thanks again.

Heck yes John, it is so cool seeing this work, and seeing you have fun! This craft needs to be spread far and wide and you are doing it. I don't know what's more powerful your enthusiasm or the examples of how to do it. Obviously the examples are the meat and potatoes of it, but damn the enthusiasm is so infectious!

Thanks so much!

Brian

Today I finished welding the door and drilled the drain holes. Also, was able to grind the welds and get the door ready for Epoxy inside and out. I will not Epoxy it though until I get the skin made.

If I am able to get the skin made tomorrow, I would like to epoxy the inside of it before I install it on the door.

I was pleased at how good the door is after you get up a couple of inches. Sounds like an old Chevy I know.

John
