    Pretty solid. Not like a lot of the crusty ones you guys have tackled.

    My favorite John Jones quote:

    sanding sucks my balls and there is no need for any pics.. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    BRENT!!!ย  ย about time for an update right??!!!???!???ย  I am usually better about it.. ๐Ÿ˜Žย  ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    I did some blasting I think on wednesday… Got all the top hats cleaned out and where we dissected metal… bottom side is clean clean clean!!! ๐Ÿ˜Žย  But.. I did not take any pics… ๐Ÿ˜Žย  Yesterday some of your metal came in… I think there is more on order, or, more that needs ordered…. We decided after that first order to cut out more…ย  ย Then today I decided to get my head wrapped around your project again..ย  and decided to work on the rear corners… Got both D pillars repaired and sprayed some primer over the metal before I put the outer skin on… Or I should say… Fab up some metal to repair them cornersย  ๐Ÿ˜Žย  we almost ordered the D’s and corners to cut up.. but they were like $500.. so we decided to make some shit… ๐Ÿ˜Žย  which is a hassle.. ๐Ÿ˜Žย  ๐Ÿ˜Žย  but not the end of the world.. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    John โ€“ you da man!!!

    Friday wasn’t all that awesome for me… I just wasn’t “into it” last week… But when Brent made that post… it all got better!!!! ๐Ÿ˜Žย  I enjoy new customers who are excited about their project and what we are doing to it… We have been working for previous customers pretty much constantly for years now…. and I think the excitement must get less and less with each project…..

    Glad to have you aboard Brent!! and thanks for posting up… It’s honestly all part of the experience,ย  ย The more excited the customers are… the more excited we are…. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    I’m gonna dig back in today… ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Have a great day! ๐Ÿ˜Žย  ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Spent ALL day massaging this corner…ย  When it got bumped… the repair was harder to do with all the bus shit and grease and crud in your way…ย  Now that I have good access to it… I hammered back over that tray lip and hammered things back where they should be.ย  the whole corner was pushed in a bit… Welded some holes on the outer skin, scratched up a piece to weld in, ground some shit, replaced the hold downs on this OG battery tray!!!! I spent a little extra time here saving an original corner and battery tray.. But I say it was worth it!!!!!ย  ๐Ÿ˜Ž

     

    Brent.. Them 4 holes in the tray… You want them or not?ย  Tape is marking the one’s in question… and I don’t think they were circled.. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
