    Good luck with that, just remember, if it is cancer it is beatable! I have experience with that, as I am currently a 2 time cancer survivor. Keep an upbeat attitude and have faith that you will be another winner! I'm convinced that keeping a positive attitude makes all the difference in the world!

    Good luck and hoping for the best for you.
     
  4. Cancer can be beaten, and control can sometimes be as good as remission.
    I have already told my story here, but I was given a year to live, 31 years ago. I am still not in remission, but I have been on an experimental drug that has kept my condition under control. Just deal with the fear, don't let it overwhelm you. Meditation tapes work to quiet the mind.

    Been tearing apart our kitchen, Still has the OG 1949 steel cabinets. Gonna have to rebuild most of the hinges as there are no replacements. The plan is to blast and powder coat the doors. And paint the rest...Now the problem is deciding on colors , I'm good with original white ...the wife ...not so much:)

    Got my son to tighten up my lug bolts today....

    I had to swap out the front axle to get the car to steer better. And the rear brakes and gears we're froze up. After pulling the drums off, I removed the shoes and reassembled the rear end. After the rims and tires were mounted, my buddy and I showed little man how to tighten the Lug Bolts.

    Tomorrow I can finally get the car into the garage. Yay!

    I put original style license plate bolts on my 37 Chevy but in stainless,could not find the square nuts in stainless but will get some when I find them. Found the original license plate bracket in the garage and was told the bolts looked original,I need to stay away from the restorers and getting parts to put the original style tail lights on too but will be over the winter.
