No joke!!! Solid barn door, lasted 60 years being abused, it will last 100 years now.

Been really fine tuning my removables... I put the OG window frames back in and made sure all looked good.. nothing rubbed or interfered. plenty of good gaps etc... I'm pulling all the removables off again and flipping it over!!!! Blast booth is not far away now... Maybe this week... ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) I guess that means me... ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

I'm out of adjectives for this one. There's just a handful of folks out there who have done this level of rebuild and it's always impressive how they go back together and are square, plum, doors fit, etc.

worked on the bottom yesterday... gonna be done on the bottom today..and then headin out for some abrasive cleaning.. =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>

When I say heading out.. I mean outside in my own personal blast booth that the city of GJ has ok'ed.. and I am gonna use my own personal screw compressor that puts out 100 CFM to blast it.... and use my own apollo fresh air hood... because KCW is self suffencient and a one stop shop, and you don't have to send the car "out" for anything.. cause we do it all our self, right here at KCW.. Right here at 801 Kimball.. always have, always will... cause KCW OWNS 801 kimball..... =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> and no one, can change that! \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/
