I’ve gotten a few pieces from them that are really nice. I’m not sure how much lowlight stuff they have though. My highlights are from the 70s!

Get it done! You had the flat dividers welded in before you ever had the replacement parts to fit everything together. Wire harness tube just appears from out of nowhere. You make it look soo easy!Juan 59 DDWTParticipantAugust 15, 2018 at 10:33 pmPost count: 304
Totally agree, you make it to look very easy 👏👏👏 thanks for the update 👍Pat KParticipantAugust 15, 2018 at 11:33 pmPost count: 2933
JJ is a magician. He was still kick as on this rig when I left the shop at 1030 tonight.
I worked the inner structure along the pass side a couple weeks ago while cutting out the junk stuff and waiting on metal to arrive. I should up date more often. Sorry Juan.
Few pics. Pass Lower a-pillar carnage.
Bunch of fiber glass was jamed up into the apillar/rocker area.
Fabbed up inner patch.
Next layer fabbed. Forgot a pic of the wire tube.
Small patch in engine bay.
Pulled a bunch of ghetto repairs out of the drivers door. Door has some prev damage. Thats metal rod, shop rags, and fiber glass.
Pass headlong bucket was fiber glassed in also.
More to come tomorrow.
We will build it if it comes.Juan 59 DDWTParticipantAugust 16, 2018 at 7:34 amPost count: 304
