  1. The weekends' work on the first inner fender (vertical panel and arc panel test piece)
  2. Well, I start work at 430 or 5AM (still get up w/o an alarm clock...dang dairy farm kids) and get done 8ish hours later. eat quick and head out to the shop, work till 5 or 530, then into the house for supper and some quality time with the wife. Once summer rolls around I'll go back out for work after eating and avoid TV....I get bored easily, so I build (trucks or woodworking). I appreviate the aknowledgement!
  3. For me I ice skating all day...roller blading/skating not so much. But for catching a groove in the ice a few years back I earned a small tear in my right knee meniscus....as the doctor said...."at your stage in life these things happen"....thanks doc
  4. Corners finished and trimmed to fit. Lower front will be cooling cup holders, angle will hold window controls and top will be hinged top with storage. Seats have arm rests already.
  5. Lots of tacks later....tomorrow corners and bracing/mounting
  6. About enough work for a day, at least it's tacked together .
  7. I THINK I've replaced all the photobucket pics I've posted here for the most part. That was not a repository of my originals, just a convient way to host them to post here, so I shoudl be able to porcure any that are needed on demand.
  8. yah I had as well, but I think NOW they actually are going to nuke accounts
  9. I got a message yesterday from Photbucket they were going to delete my account and all content unless I paid money, so if you haven't paid up or don't plan to, save the photos if they aren't duplicated somewhere else. I know there are a LOT of pics on here that have the water mark and/or have already been removed by them.
  10. All I know is I never want to be in an accident in my old stuff.....regardless, likely severe injuries and honestly...I don't know if I'd want to make it out "in one piece" with massive internal injuries with a non system designed seatbelt system. In FEF I roll the dice every drive: accident likey I'd be dead. In TODD I have factory belts on a modern seat fastened to the cab sturdily with a colapsable steering wheel in front of me....but no crumple zone or air bags....just litterally tons of mass to push on the other vehicle.
