Dons Single, Built to Hammer on!

Postby john jones » Thu Nov 11, 2010 12:21 pm

Don... Might be a little premature... but once it snows.. it is going to suck jacking this rig up and getting on a dolly and moving around.. Soo.. I am going to get it up on the dolly after lunch and if your ready.. start making a list of metal to get coming this way so we can make it solid for you..

Cool. I won't really be ready to do anything serious until after the first of the year. But...I want it to look just like it does with minimal bodywork/paint, just what has to be done to make it roadworthy. I have minimal funds for this one. I've pretty much been a one man economic stimulus package this year & have spent more than I've earned....but I just couldn't pass it up! :-$

Hey, on the front fender that's pranged, can you just hammer that back straight, no filler, leave the scars or is it too far gone?
