idrivejunk Screwed drip rails on from the inside, put quarters on, check for interference and the right side has a tiny spot of light contact at bottom of body line so I began to address that.

idrivejunk They are tiny. This pic shows how the back corners differ. Not too worried about it. The cross pieces are aligned fine and its the quarters that will say if more work is needed. There may be.



Back to the camera wonk thing



A pillar top, RH-





LH-







Headache bar ends-





Had Jeff blast these once I was done with them-

123pugsy Wow, that is one small car from that perspective of standing inside it.

idrivejunk Ha! No way. Whut say we just throw it on the porch and see it the cat licks it up.

Too Many Projects There's 2 ways to look at that...
1) if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
2) if it ain't broke, give me a few minutes...

You'll git-r where you are happy with it. You seem to be rather "persistent" with that goal...

My wife accuses me of being stubborn about fitment issues and I keep correcting her that I am persistent. Once in a while she says I'm beyond persistent...OK, maybe I'm tenacious...
But I'm damn sure NOT stubborn...

idrivejunk Catalina is painted. Some interior pieces are being shot today. Also black, very.

idrivejunk Hi.

Its 47" tall.







All that measures decent. Considering everything fits, I am reconsidering messing with that roof side rail. But this part needs some work-

idrivejunk One more before hopping on the A train today...

Saw a news story other day... a couple ol' boys bagged them a pair of great big birds that more than covered the hood of their truck in the glory shot for FB...

turns out they were Trumpeter Swans. D'oh! Boy did they get in some hot water.

Speaking of dinosaurs (they are the birds, now), I learned that while scientists have named many kinds of dinosaurs after themselves, there were really only about a dozen kinds. They have been naming growth stages of the same kind as different animals because of how much skeletons change during growth.

Theres some trivia, relevant because we get our jollies burning dino squeezin's.

Before you embark on rip snorting sessions (like the one earned by making that tube)...

Install a GM ratcheting shifter. A his n hers. So she can just watch the tach and give it a smack.



She would love that.

idrivejunk Heres a thinker:

How much has the definition of the word funky changed during our lifetimes?

I heard a comedy bit concerning that the other day.

And I actually learned to drive in a '72 BMW 2002. 4 speed.
