Thanks. I'm sure I'll hit 10,000 hours, maybe more by the time I'm done.

But according to all the "car builder shows" they can do it in 5 days. My Ass.

Those cars are what I call 30 yard cars. That's it. Anything closer than that and I need a note pad and TWO pens to write down all the discrepancies.

Looks like you tapped off the seams before the seam sealer.

I love attention to detail like that. Separates you into a very small group of people who take true pride in their work.

Damn computers always lying, it was in the bottom print saying it was your b-day, well happy late or early one anywayFind a Ice cold one and enjoy it, b-day or not. Dont know what your weathers been like there but it has been in the 3 digits here in southern Oregon.

And here I was complaining about our "hot" 75-80 degrees.

Well, how about that? Five years gone by just like that. The old house has been knocked down, a new two story house stands in it's place and I pushed the Mopar back into the garage.

Hopefully, I'll remember to keep the updates coming. I've done a bit in the last month. It's slow getting back into the groove, but I'm starting to feel it.....

Starting back with the cowl to fender attachments. I had welded new flanges on the fenders about ten years ago. Of course, I had no clue back then as I've never built a rod or made custom shaping at the time. They were nowhere close so I cut them off and made matching new patches.

Pics.......
