    I don't find an applause emoji or I'd throw that in there too. A GS wagon!

    I'd love to see you tackle an LS in a Rover, people have done it, but their documentation is...let's just say lacking.

    so the Corvette wasn't coming back tonight so I figured I'd move forward on the wagon
    I need to paint the frame, so first blow the dirt off with a pressure washer

    done and done

    smooth the welds on the frame


    but wait, look what got home...


    doesn't matter, tomorrow I'll set it up to paint the frame

    an old friend is back.... I must get the frame painted before it gets too cold (and hopefully the underside and firewall)

    The 'Vette looks good! Nice shade of silver.

    drill time

    though this kept distracting me

    welded


    the difference between a 64 and all the rest of the generation's frames

    time to straighten this a bit

    I get that, but I don't want to do the work to get there - metal work is like baking but just working with harder dough

    not yet.. I'm not a pro, I'm not paid by the hour to do this, and making metal move to where I want it to go fascinates me.... eventually, sure, but since this is my hobby; I have time to keep learning.... fun thing is most enjoy watching the process so it's a win win (unless you want the car done, then there's nothing I can do for you).

    it got rid of about 1/2 of the dent (near the weld)
