Sooooooo, I went out to the garage to get something done, I pulled the door off the cab, started to weld the one last seam from the patch panel and I ran out of wire, crap. Oh well, Nick needed to weld his clutch pedal bushing thingie in the bracket and I had so .035 so he was able to do that.

I bought a 1 ton truck a couple weeks ago with the intentions of building a truck like this,,I found a 59 Peterbuilt cab to use,,but a man stopped by yesterday and it is on his rollback on its way to Chatanooga,,
when the money is right the truck is Gone.---But I kept the 292 and transmission might go in a 55 chevy pu


John Long warned me about parking it under the shade tree..

Only worked a couple hours today but I got the Cat to lay flat. Meaning now there's enough room to establish a correct position over the frame. See blog at: Old car body repair pic dump: Catalina repairs- body mounting

It is cool to be fixing a Pontiac, with another Pontiac being fixed right next to it. Because I'm a Pontiac man who loves any V8 Pontiac. Of course the Pontiacs I love most are my Pontiacs. Pontiacs are so awesome that I walked a football field's worth to get pics of this cool gold Pontiac we ain't fixed yet, which happens to be right next to another Pontiac that we have fixed already. Theres a car show near the house this weekend, and although I won't enter my big Pontiac, I'll probably go up there (in a Pontiac because its all Grand Prix all the time) to see some glorious Pontiacs. Maybe there will be some other Pontiac owners cruising their Pontiacs around before and after the show. I enjoy throwing revs at other Pontiacs best!

PONTIAC!

I have the three pieces of the hood inner structure fabricated and started tipping the flanges tonight. I still have the center piece to do but the curved end pieces are fitting very nicely.

The main center piece will not fall into place until I tip the flange at the nose but I am beat for today.

I don't know if I have mentioned it but I bought a Nissan Altima for my daughter. A total loss at work, a KILLER "rebuilder" it would be driven without doing a thing. But to make it nice I need to get a few parts and stopped by Pick-ur-part tonight and found what I needed there so I will be back tomorrow to get it.

I then came home and got out to the garage and finished welding the patch on the cowl. Got to looking at the door and will start on that tomorrow.

.......Gorsh.

The truth is, a master would do twice as good of job in half the time. I keep getting better but still have a lot to learn.

At my age, I'm running out of time.

Thanks guys.
