  2. Thanks for the update, Boss. I'm lovin' that '40 Coupe but, everything there looks righteous. Keep the healing process on target. Don't get all cocky and think you're back to 100% before you actually are.:D.......................Don.

    Did you get the good drugs? Glad you are on the mend. If you will take advice from an older guy, it is quicker to heal up the first time than to screw up the doctor's work and have to do it again. Take an extra day. You're not as young as I once was. Great color on that 40.
  4. Thanks for the vid.Hell I'd come up and sweep and be a shop mouse just to see all the fine work going on.

    Thanks for the update Ryan. I am in love with the 40! What is the lift it is setting on? Do you have a name and perhaps a link, please?

    Glad to hear that you are continuing to mend but as soon as you get well I want to give you the devil for not finding a good 40-41 pickup candidate while you were just "laying around!":D

    I wish you a speedy and complete recovery but please do NOT rush it.

    In honor of our pal 3WLarry, I am "patiently waiting."

    All the best.

    sounds like you are at the dangerous part of healing, feeling good enough to go and do stuff and still feeling like you know better and best just settle down for a while - thanks for shots in shop - don't do too much impulse buying on the gadgets site

    Glad to see you're moving and feeling good enough to be tempted to start working again.
    Listen to the boss. Don't push it. Great tour thx.
  10. Looks like the '40 is sitting on 2 motorcycle lifts buried flush in the floor. Very tricky. Works really well for mortorcycle mechanics too. The '40 is really cool but the '32 with hemi really does it for me. Respect your doctors work and get well slowly.

    The lift is a Bendpak prototype that we are evaluating... I like the convenience, but it needs work.

    But thanks for your patience guys. I should be back at it soon. I literally have the best brain and spine surgeon in the entire god damned world taking care of me - @skullcracker

    He previously did my total disc replacement about seven years ago and last week did another TDR as well as fixed my broken neck... Pretty serious surgery. Like REALLY serious. And I've come out of it running hard and ready to go simply because my doctor just has a ridiculous amount of talent.

    Glad you're on the mend, don't rush it man.
    And the freakin' 40 is sweet....

    On that lift, a buddy has something similar, probably from the 50s-60s. Drive over scissors deal that sits on the concrete floor. Raises probably 3' max, electric/hydraulic power. Something like the ones used in present day tire shops, only older & cruder. Works like a charm & the price was right.

    Sounding pretty mellow Ryan, don't let Dr. Feelgood get you in trouble. What's up with Keith, I actually saw him almost at a standstill (no blurred image)? Glad to see that your doing so well!!

    Great video Ryan and great to see your back in action if not fully back in action. I hope you post a link to that for those on the GJ forum as they will love it for the Garage.

    The video was great, and you gotta take it easy with any type of back surgery. The ole lady has had multiple and it's better to take it easy than try and push yourself. Rest, relax, and focus on getting back to 100%. That 40 is gorgeous by the way.
