    [​IMG] Had to rework the rad support mount and front bumper brackets, due to changing the thickness of the body mounts when I put the body back on.

    Looking sharp,Steve!

    With all that's gone on and going on in your life, have you stood back lately to appreciate just how far this once-upon-a-time assemblage of "less than great-shape parts" has really come?

    You should be proud.

    Ironically Joe I've been doing exactly that over the last week, I really needed to feel something positive in my life...I'm actually in day surgery at this very moment at the Kentville hospital for a urology issue..I'll leave the rest to your imagination, suffice to say I'd rather be anywhere else right now!

    Ah man... always something.
    Hopefully you can stand back soon and just say "Piss on it... I'll make it!"
    Sorry. Did I type that?
    Good luck, buddy.
     
  8. Nice to see some color, I always wondered if it would get to this stage, after you slowed down on it.
    I have to also be another of the blue fans, it really suits the car.
    Now that it's at this stage, I hope you get to drive it this Summer.

    You did, and it's funny! The nurse just asked if I was allergic to anything, I said yes I'm allergic to having something jammed in my dick hole!!

    Thanks Jeff, progress will be directly proportional to how well I'm feeling and if I have any $ to spend on it, at the very least I will be taking it for its first test run this summer, but my goal is roadworthy.

  12. Good shit.
    I've just realised this is 82 pages.
    Sure didn't seem like it at the time.

    If you have trouble with the Hamb app, try going to the site through Google or chrome.
    You lose some features like signature lines, but I have no problems doing it this way on my phone.
    There's nothing better when in a hospital, than being able to kill time reading the Hamb.

    I love the app for the ease of posting pics but it's pretty flakey in other ways, keeps repeating the same threads and the search function is questionable some times.. I couldn't tell you the last time I was on a pc for the H.A.M.B. , it's been a few years for sure?

    All the pictures show up from page 1 and so forth so I'd say they are. Koolkemp, it's those pictures I keep referring to so you may get a lot of emails if they disappear :).

    I guess photobucket is still around and working, I don't even recall my passwords for it ! I'm glad the older pics are still visible.

  30. That build is an amazing resurrection-glad to see you feeling better and back at it.
    Your work is an inspiration and a challenge to anyone who dares to think..'it can't be done'
