    I have been "Clean for 3 Years"
    (Til I just Bought a Vintage Job Site Forklift, but That Was for Storm Damage)
    I have TWO Buildings!!! And Projects Parked Outside!
    But I am Just as Guilty of Multiple Projects going on !!
    Like Dave's Messy Garage Post.......
    You are tripping over parts, and have a mild "Restack" to work on the next one.......LOL

    It looks like you are trying to justify more sheding already, then again do we ever have enough

    screwed together for its ride across the State.



    and a new chariot for such rides (though not this time)

    8x16 which is basically the size of my open trailer.... the move is a good excuse to buy it, but it was killing me the damage the Corvette was suffering riding in the open.

    never think the fender is perfect... it is not


    I hate doing it, but I'm going to break it down to several components - which means spot weld drilling -

    mostly because it's easier to fix the dents as a single panel - however, the lower lip is really thin - so where I'm drilling out the spot welds will be replaced....

    it's remarkable that it was filled with Idaho dirt but not rusted out

    well, 1200 miles, 3 days and a few new things

    we have a new terrorist... cute little bugger, though
    the quarter in its wavy glory

    amazing how little effort can really make it a lot better

    just a push

    also a push here

    I'm going to pull the skin off but I want to do the fixes while it's still in its 'jig' also have a bit of sill rust repair....

    should get the car back in the shop tomorrow night

    oh and the other thing, we're moving in 3 weeks 250 miles away... that said, it's an amazing new shop
