    If you built a car, you can figure out how to post pics of it. I would like to see this car.

    well; that is truly awe inspiring, and INSPIRING in itself. you wanna spell it "cal" you go right ahead and do it. i've seen restorers fab up patches and stuff but RARELY a whole body from scratch, in steel, by hand....
    now GET BACK TO WORK and finish it! we want more!

    and when yer done i got a concept in mind for a shoebox coupe....

    i borrowed a nice camera so you's can have some quality pictures. hears the progress of the last 2 days moved the engine up , moved the rear wishbones on the inside of the frame. the last few days i got a lot of work done and a lot of headaches too, i work out of a friends garage and their son is a heron addict or whatever he can get his hands on. so i have to deal with him breaking my stuff, breakin my tools , selling my tools breakin my parts. the other day he crashed a three wheeler into my frame! and i cant hit the kid because i don’t want to get kicked out of the garage, so pretty soon i have to pack my shit n get out of there. any ideas on how i should get him back?

    I wouldn't worry about getting the kid back, most people on that crap end up getting themselves. Get your stuff out of there soon, better that way to not lose a friend:D

    Seriously nice work you've done on that thing guy!

    It's great that you took the time to show this work. I'd rather follow an original project anyday. As to those who cause problems like your friend's son(?) Keep your friend, and watch over time how karma comes home to roost. No need to invest any of your valuable time here. The son will find out eventually what serves and what injures.
