    Keep up the great job.

    I got the same seats in my old hot rod. It’s a nice comfy seat for us old guys ;)

    Too bad the seat back adjuster in on then passenger side but it works just fine.

    What color is that one? It’s either the light grey or light green? Doing a great job brother.

    Thanks Cliff, and all,

    Thanks to all who visit and reply.

    It is moving slowly.There are things I must push myself to do.When they don't get finished it adds to frustration, But I still have to go to the shop.

    O/t, had to work on lights yesterday, one tube was flickering,couldn't get it to stop with 2 new tubes. Went to wally world. Picked up a cheap LED not knowing what it was. also picked up 2 new tubes. Installed new tubes no light now. Took the new light out of the box, no tubes.Hooked it up and wow, a good light with no tubes. As bulbs go bad I will be replacing with the LEDs .

    thanks,

    jim

    It has been about 3 weeks since I posted. Just back from Dr ,my kidneys are operating at 31%, Dr says if we can't get them to at least 40 % you are going on dialisis. New word for me and a dreaded one.

    I was hoping to get the back half finished before this came along. Doesn't look like that will happen. Just have to wait and see.

    Thanks Cliff and all others. This may be my Waterloo.
    You all gave me support when I needed it and encouraged me , but this has taken a toll on me. Maybe after the first of the year.

    Jim,
    Never say never! You give me incintive to get my ass up an out in shop. Do what doctors say and get that percent up. I am going back to Florida for the holidays and I will try to plan a longer stop in Warner Robins on the way back.
    I will keep you in my prayers.
