You know what's funny, this door right at the body line is 3/16" shorter than the other side! Yep, it doesn't take much work to get it better than they had it!

I don't do customer work but a good friend has a little rust where the inner brace in his hood has trapped moisture and it was blistering the paint.

It is really cool to be able to do this just because I want to help a buddy. No pressure and lots of appreciation!

John

'56 Buick David. He is in the middle of putting it on a Scotts Hot Rod chassis with an LS6 out of a GTO. It as going to make a really nice car.

LOL, He swears he is not going to paint it. Just blend in the hood. We will see about that!

Last year, I moved 5, 4 post lifts from 2 locations to a storage building for a friend. He had a new building put up across the parking lot from that one and today we moved those 5 and 2 more he bought since. Moving the lifts was easy. Moving the 14 friggin cars first was a job. Only 3 ran and moved under their own power and he collects '68 Biscayne's...
This time I used the roll back and it was so much quicker, not to mention easier to load and unload.

So today I got a pretty cool SSR to work on, black with ghost flames. I haven't worked on one in many years and it's cool. It's basically what my truck's theme is, IF there would have been an SSR in 1950, my truck is that SSR.

So I have to get out there, and yes John, my brother made a comment that I have to get that truck on the road so I can race him in his 39 that he is getting back.
