    That's a good way to build upper body strength and work ethic! it saves on labor costs.

    Well if they weren't supposed to be doing it, someone should've put down the camera and stopped them. They really don't look very committed to the task at hand.

    also the passenger side worker needs safety glasses and give the other one a face shield. hahaha ( sorry but I deal with students with tools everyday and safety is habit forming)

    anyway, good job getting the young'uns involved and keep it up.

    Think of the bragging rights:
    "Chopped my first car when I was ten...".

    First cut should be the highest point on the pillar. That way, when you make the second cut, you aren't chasing the roof around on the floor, while trying to make your cut. Nice picture though. Stu

    I did my first brake job on my Dad's mercury when I was 10 so that's about the right age to start I guess!

    It's cool that they wanted to be involved . They can learn to weld when it goes back together too .
