Really envious of you guys and your projects. My back pain has been so bad lately that I haven't even spent the needed time at the computer developing my website for my online business. HOLSTERSANDMORESTORE.COM.

I just have to live my hot rod dreams vicariously through your projects. Carry on. T-Bucket is up for sale on craigslist.

Thanks Sam. I refuse to just lay down and give up. I do what I can. When low pressure zone comes in, it hurts to breathe , and I find myself holding my breath. Thank God that isn't most days. I have had a MILD procedure and RFA treatments. Injections don't help. Not a candidate for surgery. Had both shoulders, both hips, and both knees replaced. Can't replace a spine, unfortunately.

Damn am I lucky, knock on wood.

I did NOT think I would get much done tonight, five minutes was a max. I ended up getting quite a bit done clearing out all the metal needed for the kick panel. Tomorrow, making a pattern for the new metal. After did that, had a 6 mile walk, didn't plan on that long either.

This really sucks.

Can you get an oxygen tank to use during those low pressure days? I know that would suck as well, but pain free is good, no?

Isn't it amazing how just a little each day adds up. I think the real key to building a car is opening the garage door. The rest just seems to add up.

Good stuff!

I threw the door open for five minutes to roll out the 59, into better light. This is what I did in my seven and a half hours minus that. Boss sez "Yer about to get there, ain't you?". I'll take one of those, yep. Some sort of action next week on tires and tank was mentioned. Working on the little hump flap between footwells now.
