As a long time lurker, I am proud my first post is with this car,that looks like it was carved from a billet of turkis soap! Stunning work KCW as usual. Amazing its done in a month! UK bodyshops have a lot to learn from you guys. I don't think anyone comes close maybe worldwide! Enough butt kissing... Jim enjoy that beauty. =D> =D> =D>

Looks stellar! You don't waste no time on the roller status =D> I found it real nice having my car on rotisserie jig for jobs like headliner and wiring etc being able to stand inside was nice. But I don't blame you on gettin it met with pan .....that's an exciting milestone of a build =D> Congrats!

Nice Jim!

Be sure to fit the doors before you get too carried away bolting the body down. Sometimes the body can get pulled out of alignment, and may need the rubber pads shimmed accordingly. The door gaps will tell you where it's at.

Franz---hope you are feeling better and thanks for the tip!

If you are laid up for another month, you can be like Denzel Washington in the Bone Collecter making sure I don't make any mistakes out in the field. I guess that makes me Angela Jolie??????? #-o #-o #-o
