    for those interested, here is an update on the "Rod" I'm building, got her painted this week and starting final assembly, she has a sexy ass dont ya think? By the way, dont paint a car in short sleeves, shorts and flip flops, it's been 3 days, acetone baths and several showers and I still look like I murdered a smurf LOL

    "I murdered a Smurf." Now THAT'S funny!

    Really like that blue. Are you going to do some pin striping on it?

    Probably not Bill, it's been a few years and I'm a little rusty, unless I can talk my uncle who does it for a living still, to come here from Colorado and stripe it for me :D

    Very nice Bill. You're moving right along! I've been restoring a '70 'Cuda since 2009 and still don't have it on the road yet.

    That’s classic Bill. Reminds me of the time I came home from work and got dragged into welding up a modified 5 link in a neighbors garage. Dressed in only shorts (because it was almost 90 at night) I had a righteous good tan for a few weeks! Lol
