Let's hope G/ma doesn't subscribe to the H.A.M.B.

Good news, now you can relax and smell the roses for a while!
What happened, I hope it's not serious. Get better soon!
I for one have always thought that for the most part upholstery guys are not given enough exposure and credit. With the exception of a few reality...
No one can say you haven't put 110% into this build Jer. Having the desire to get it right and than doing what it takes until it is right might...
It's alive!! Great Jer.
Hope you are both better soon.

Very nice work Jer.
Jer, your doing great. If I could do what your doing though, I couldn't do it the way your doing it. I would have to have all the body together to...
My eyes aren't as good as yours are Jer, I don't see what your talking about.
Was that your left hand holding the template for rounding the upper left door corner? Looks like the ring finger nail got beat with a hammer.
I like the way you are establishing the door openings with the 1/4" rod. I don't think I've seen that done so much on this era build, usually just...
