    I will say it this way, I'm happy he got the car, a lesser guy would toss that one away and start with a different one. Awesome seeing that particular car getting a full redo!!!

    Really pumped about this progress because we are officially done with RUST!!!!!

    O.K. what do you get when you cross a piece of rocker from a Dodge Dakota,a piece of quarter from an aero nose fox and a peice of quarter from a foureyed coupe? Yes, a new rocker for RUSTY...ahhhhhh

    Five pieces later, success...[​IMG]

    Also got all the welding in the engine bay complete a little more grinding and on to mud.

    This is good because we really need to paint so we can tell if the color we picked is gonna be right. One hint, it probably isn't gonna be white.

    Thanks for saying that, cause I get worried that we're boring people. I'm glad we're doing it cause it forces us to take the pics, we never had pics of doing the other car.
