    Be honest, is the back glass of any use at all?

    Just checked out your build man and it looks like it's turning out sweet. The more shoeboxes I see like this make me wish I would have taken just a little more off my top.... Keep it going!!!!!

    I can grind, hammer, and weld all day, and it doesn't seem like I get anything done, but I spend five minutes putting the rack and pinion on, and it seems like I accomplished something major. I don't get it.

    Looking real good. I think Bill Hines said "profile is everything". what colors do you have in mind for paint?

    I've changed my mind so many times about color, so i just don't think about it now. I'm so far from that point. I would like to stay with a ford color though>

    Haven't gotten much done to the car lately, been down with my back. one of the perks of being a tattooer, and getting older. but what better time to get tattooed myself, then when I have some really good pain meds!

    It's not related to the shoebox, but still wanted to share

    My little Bill Hines tribute
