    honestly.. I am scared to jump into a project… then I feel “Obligated” to finish it…   it will be all up in everyone’s way… I dunno…. Been trying to talk ALP into sending my drag ghia back down here…. 😎

    Last time I was working on this I made the closing panel for the heater channel and end cap for rocker all in one piece and welded in.  Next is the bottom of the A pillar… 😎  Which should move forward shortly…   and then finish that stuff up under the nose and the shell should be about done…  re dust off and it will look like a virgin untouched body…. 😎

    Juan… after we did  few more things to Bobs camper… I got right on the ghia!!!  😎  I got the lower A pillar replaced and outer skin all fixed up too… this whole corner got a rebuild… 😎   More progress next week! Nose is the worst area on the main shell left… parts will be going on next week for sure!

    I have been painting the insides and back sides of shit with metallic spray paint to help protect it.. looks good too… 😎  I like making the insides look good.. behind panels.. anywhere you can look!!! 😎  any where you can grind!!! 😎

    Good day on the Low Light yesterday!!!  I got those lower corners repaired and then mocked up the rest of the lower nose closing panel stuff…  Tore it all apart and started welding.. Got the lower apron closing panel set and in, and lower nose is about 50% welded… I quit about 8:30 last night when I ran out of wire in my welder…. 😎  Pics later!!!! I hope to have the shell done and start hanging parts later this week!!!!! 😎
