SOB, never fails... I ran out of welding gas on Sunday. lol I was just having a good'ol'time then all of a sudden, wtf, something not right here?!?! Gave up and went fishing - I caught nothing and got rained on.

I ran to the welding shop on my lunch break and I got another tank. Cant wait to go home and weld more holes up.

I removed the metal backing for the head lights. I'm glad I did, had lots of rust in there between the plates, especially around the lower half. The original reason was to get a better look at the front pillars. It gave me room to weld up those hard to reach spots around the bottom of the head lights and floor - front - grill spots. Looks like I poked it's eyes out.

I really hoped to be further along by mid may. Oh well... Might be Slow and Steady...Its sill progress. I'll have to harrass Clover about gettign me pics. He has been taking pics hotos for me after I destroid my phone.

pics I know! I'll harass clover again tonight.


Wish I had a video of me doing the hot pants shuffle last night. I was sitting in a folding foot stool thing just welding away..... Some hot metal hit my upper thigh, burnt through my pants. Before I really noticed it rolled down the inside of my leg and to the middle of the back of my leg. At that point I stood up and it ran down my leg twards my foot as I did the hot pants shuffle across the garage. Gravity Still works!

It was pretty funny after the fact....not so much at the time.

BTDT! lol

Had sneakers on one time and a piece of slag burnt through the tongue. They were high tops, and couldn't get it off fast enough. Hurt like a mother!

....ohhh I always use a mask or goggles... But Shirts, Pants, & Gloves are optional lol


Last night was awesome! Clover, Dr. Rosh, and I got a lot done in a short amount of time, 8pm-1:30am. Henry Ford was early on the assembly line. I was welding, they guy next in line was grinding, the guy after that was filling and sanding. It was wild! You should see some of these patch panels, fit like a glove and more straight than the original metal. Iĺll harass Clover again to give me the pics to post. I have to work later again tonight and swap out a firewall but after that, itĺs back to the garage. I was getting a bit discouraged there for a few weeks, working all the time instead of doing stuff in the garage. If we can keep this pace this it would be awesome! Even started welding up seams on the inside grin Door jams are looking good too. Iĺll have to figure out what to do with all that seam sealer I picked upů.wonĺt be needing that.
