    Lets see who shows up to help…. 😎  You had all kinds of volunteers a month ago…. 😎  But with that said… I think it would be best and less stress full to just have people who know what that are doing, and have done it many times before… 😎  This is no time to learn or practice… 😎 😎

    Hopefully Rusty will be able to pull away from his schedule and come hang out for a week or so… 😎

Straight to work. JJ finished up the rust repair. I grinded away for awhile, then JJ re dusted off the shell. We stripped the roof. Seems like a happy shell.

    I tore seats apart and got all the broken bits repaired. Now I’m going to blast a few small parts. Keep this train rolling.

     

    oh ya. Emilee also showed up😎 nice surprise. Been 2 weeks!

    Going to be a great first week!!

    The EVENT is under way…. the process has stated.. and now the clock is running…   Yesterday was a long one for me…  but goal was accomplished!!!

    We should start a poll for when we think Cole will be driving this rig… I am guessing more like Thanksgiving.. 😎

    Remember when we used to do the build off’s????  A project like this would be fun with another shop…. 😎  😎  😎  If anyone wants to try and work harder than us….. 😎  😎  😎

Came out nice! My first bigger thing I’ve painted. We will see how the real paint goes on the body in a few days… haha

     

    blasting sucks. I chickened out of doing any more after dinner. Hard for me to see in the booth when it’s dark out. I’ll finish blasting some parts in the a.m.

     

    tonight I got the decklid and hood stripped and ready for more bodywork. Welded a couple extra holes and some cracks on edges. Also got my dash ready for the extra gauges I have. Should look good.

    nico keeps me company at night

    Looks like Cole went to bed about 4 hours ago or so…. I woke up early again 3am!!!  Guess I will get them rear fenders done early!!!  😎 😎  On a project like this… getting up early doesn’t mean I get to quit early… Just more available hours to kick ass…. 😎
