    instead of welding can you use the new glue that is used on body panels,,,i figure the overflow will act as bonbo and is sandable
     
  11. do not i repeate do not do this!!!!!! You will get a bond line that will ghost through your paint!!!!!

    The buckets are simply instaled from inside the wheel well. you should always adjust them first before you disasemble them.

    Not the same guy.. Germ worked for brad last year and no longer does..

    For those who don't know brad..
    He currently rents out the Barris Lynwood shop and worked for George and was tought by Bill Hines... He still uses the same techniques the people at the shop did in the days.. He's a oldest young builder I know...
