    Just got home from Speedy Metals with some 3003- H14 Aluminum . Just a little trimming is all that is needed right ?

    Wow. Very surgical. With the rivits, and your avatar, will there be more aviation style through out the build? Your painting with a brush put my spraying with a gun to shame. Keep it up. Oh, and I tried very hard to spot some dirt, or debris on your floor. I could not see any. Wow!

    20180808_130756.jpg Today I started on the rear portion of the top. I can lie and tell you it is easy but you know it isn't. 20180808_113624.jpg

    @chop job are you bucking those yourself or do you have a backup? This is what I call an appearance item one slip of the bar or a hit without a bar and the work is damaged. you are doing a fine job. If you doing this all on your own your quite the acrobat. Budda Boom Budda Bing...;)

    I've heard of riv-nuts but those are not that...is that a 2 piece Fastener or is that 2 separate fasteners in two diameters. So I'm still curious is that a solid rivet and a collar presses on the other side? I know that is Scotchbrite pad the fasteners are on...

    Heard you loud and clear...:D. The top...in fact it's all tying together nicely. Pretty cool fastener. Looks the Rivet part without all the banging. All you have to get right is the pitch and holes and that takes some calculating for sure...enjoying your build @chop job

  21. When I first looked at that picture I thought, "what is he doing welding the back axle to the frame solid for:eek:?" Is he trying to kill his back and build a "hard tail rod:mad:?" Then after the third look I see it is just the rear cross bar;). We will call that an "optical illusion" for you younger folk who would even attempt to call me old!:D

  28. Sorry to hear about the medical issues. I agree though - family and friends really coming through when you need them is a great blessing.
