    Cody, I have heard that those torpedo heaters that you have sitting on the floor in one of your pictures emits fumes that will screw up a paint job. Apparently, you aren't having a problem? Kerosene or propane? ~WX1

    Thank you ,, any one can do this , it just takes time and practice , the wealth of knowledge is out there and tremendous , the only limits are your mind and if you can not physically do it
    Thank you

    Wow, I cannot believe I missed this thread before. I just spent 3.5 hours working my way through it.

    Cody, it cannot be said enough that this car, and your talents, are an incredible display of design, execution, and craftsmanship.

    You have single handedly shot to hell the self esteem of half they guys on the HAMB. Once we got through metalwork, body, and paint I was getting worried. Then we get custom bolts and a hand made license plate, where I was really concerned. But when you put a tight and straight headliner in a wagon interior that must be fifty feet long, it was all over. I was screaming off into the sunset. (boy am I tired :D) I may have to just sell my tools, buy a Toyota, and take up golf.

    I hope Rodders Journal is listening. (Pgan you out there?) This is the right car, and Ganahl is the right guy to put this car into words.

    Can't wait to see it complete and cruising!

    Still looking great. A beautiful car, almost done. You won't know what to do with yourself when you've finished!
