  4. Ha Ha that metal finish shit !!!!
    I swear that’s either a God given talent I didn’t get or a sold yr soul to the devil skill I’m not going to do.

    I was talking to s guy today about just that and bodywork. We agreed the last 10% to perfection takes 90% of the time. And do you know the difference between 1 teaspoon of filler vs 3 teaspoons ???? About 40 hrs

    Get the body and frame primed real well, then come back and look at things in a month or so, maybe give the Vicky some attention. Bob

    No No! Not that "W" word:eek::eek::eek::eek: I was thinking WARP. My 1911 Hupmobile is my new main auto concern, the other stuff is stuffed in the corner.

    Great journey, guys...Nothin' better than bein' in on such a detailed 'Body Building'!
    All our buds, some good ideas tossed around, some 'alsos'...
    But the dedication to the right end is applaudable. (another new word)

    My T Touring project looks like...nothing to talk about, some reshaping of the subframe, reworking the 'B' pillar forward quarter, working out 7 bullet holes, (.45!) Only one went through the driver side door jamb (!) which alarmed me at first, but after reading this, it'll be a cakewalk! (Yesterday, it looked like an 'unusual task'...Now, I'm anxious to clean it, clamp it, and work it back to 'T' perfection!)
    Thanks so far, those quarters...the roof...Chevy A-D hood! Quarter windows.
    Rear window? Man alive!
    "It was a truck". Man...

  13. Yet we’re still here following along. Merry Christmas!
  14. Been nothing but installing insulation in the new shop since thanksgiving.

    The Shop is a complete mess.
    Disaster is a more appropriate term. But these things usually do get worse before they get better. There’s lots of progress here
  15. Damn. Scaffolding. Worth buying & having for certain.

    I do like your floor space, over the last shop.

    My God Vic, the new shop is impressive!

    I will finally get going on my project again, now that I have retired 100%, but it's sat too long without love.

    It won't be as complicated as yours, but it will certainly qualify as a full radical custom when I get done.

    Whether it will shine remains to be seen...

  24. I did get to move it this week. from one side of the shop to the other. It’s setting in my new almost paint booth.

  25. Been so busy,
    Everything else comes first.
    my come hell or high water goal was to get unpacked and my shop settled. Tired of living/working like I’m moving for the last 2 years. It’s been like operating in emergency mode. We’ve Been at it long and hard since thanksgiving and it’s paying off.

  29. Thanks,
    It’s eating me alive that I haven’t had time, or space to work on it.

  30. I didn’t really really get to work on it today. But I did get to move it and use it as a model while setting up the lights in my new almost paint booth. 9F99AA6D-3EFD-4D08-8880-D2FCF6177DC6.jpeg
