    Thanks, seems they are just as much work. I guess I'm better with fiberglass than a welder.

    Latest update, have not gotten a thing accomplished. Managed to get my left thumb into a table saw, not to deep. But 15 stitches in 3/4 of an inch and you can see the kerf of the blade in my bone on the x-ray. Starting to get back some usage and feeling (weird sensations). Thank God I'm right handed. Order a bunch of parts. Anybody have any info on vacuum wiper motors that would bolt in on my UPAC header panel mounts?

    Wiper should be electric. I've used the Mighty Mite a couple times. They're real slim and work well. A bit pricey, but I've used the cheap ones, with not such good luck.

    Sweet ride Splitbudaba, but I gotsta know, what tires are you running in the rear? Those are some cool rollers.

  14. Great project. Cut my left index finger badly on my last build. Took about a year to gain full movement back. Laid off from Northwest airlines back in 2003, haven't heard the word Aviall in a long time. I worked in the composite shop for a few years there. I'm waiting for someone to make a '32 in graphite!;)

    Great looking car, nice work. I also like the garage time as much as the driving.
    Good luck, Ron.

    Graphite 32 would be cool. I'm starting to get feeling at the tip and one side of my thumb. It's really hard to judge how much I'm squeezing when I pick something up. I'm going to work on the coupe this weekend.

    Love the pics. I was a little wary when I first posted. Didn't take long till I got some negativity. Responded "Too bad". We are hot rodders. Critics stay home!!!

    Afraid of the opinion of a bunch of old car guys that you will likely never meet, a few basement dwellers that wouldn't know a wrench from a wiener or a moderator that might push the big red delete button? Have some faith brother, some of us will get it!
    Or in the words of your name sake Bob;

    Trust yourself,
    Trust yourself to do the things that only you know best
    Trust yourself
    Trust yourself to do what's right and not be second-guessed
    Don't trust me to show you beauty
    When beauty may only turn to rust
    If you need somebody you can trust, trust yourself.
