    Awesome, just awesome! This build has captivated me for as long as I've been a member.

    Quick question on the second video: The video looks like it has corrected the movement of the I-phone. Is this a separate program, and if so is it only for Apple stuff?
    Thanks, and looking forward to your progress. Amazing Wagon!

    Great feeling, isn't it...??? To know that all the work (and time) you put into the car works together..."bugs" are always going to be in any build/rebuild...it's part of the game...congrats on the drive...!!!

    I've been reading through this thread for the last several days, whenever I get a chance. I've delayed posting, trying to get to the end. I've resisted the urge to jump to the end to see your car finished, instead, following your journey. With such a long thread, everything that can/should be said has been said so many times. I don't know how you stay so modest. I finally caved and had to post to say how much I love the car and, at only page 60, I still haven't seen the car completely painted. Only the roof so far. Amazing work! Best of luck. I'm back to reading on page 60.

    Wow! I am so stunned by the amount of ideas, workmanship and perfection you are putting into this car. You are not playing in a better league, that´s just a whole different sport! Like soapbox racing vs Formula 1.Holy shit! I wish I had a quarter of your talent and 2% of your imagination.
    How could I miss this until now?

    Monday update time again , I found a pin hole leak in the radiator after letting the motor run for 20 min , so I had to tare all of that stuff back apart , frustrating times but on the good side of things , after it ran for 20 min it never got over 180degrees, so I decided to start doing some interior work since all the glass is in

    Hope to see this thing in person sometime. Will it make it to any shows/ events in the dirty south? Run to the Sun? Autofair in Charlotte, Goodguys/ Charlotte? Steel in Motion?? Love the build thread. Good luck with the rest of the build.
