    Got that little strip tacked into place.. That was just enough to tweak it just about back to the right spot. Stayed out there till 8:30 gettin' it done. Picture:

    Im not sure if your school offers auto shop, but I took four years of it in High school and you'll be amazed how this stuff will start clicking and come together, not just in your mind.

    Keep it up, little homie!

    Great job so far!
     
  11. I agree, the future of hot rodding is safe if we have more people like Hotrod95.
    Wish we had auto shop down here when i was a lad.
    Took engineering, but my teacher was an idiot, and i couldnt learn anything from him, except how teachers can be bullies too! His last name was saw. Id sure take a saw to his ass nowdays, if i saw him. HA HA. :D

    I hope they both stick around for quite a while. As for the color, I was thinking Satin finish the whole way, purple wouldn't be too bad. Shiny, would be though

    Hey guys! I've been so freaking swamped with school work.. It's crazy! Haven't had a whole lot of time with the truck. But, I did get the new patch tacked in. My dad kind of took over that patch for me after I cut out the fender he cut a new peice to fit in and worked it 'till it fit. But, I got it almost all the way tacked in. Progress pictures tomorrow.
