You've done some great work and have such a great eye for details! I will for sure be following along from here on out. And dont let people bust yer balls about your shitty beer, just tell em youre hydrating yourself for the whiskey later!

    thanks guys!

    more hood work . more shitty gaps from putting a 49 caddy hood on a pontiac this is about the end of em

    you can see here the 3 different pieces of the hood that were welded together equal one hell of a bad gap so gotta fix it

    just about done still needs some filing and some weld added to a few areas but you get the idea

    next is to try and get the 49 caddy front brace in and the hood latching so i dont have to use those hood pins that muscle cars have hahaha
