Pushing the hood as hard as I can. We have had a fair amount of work come in that we had to go outside of the shop for a week, so things are busy. I am not putting you guys off, and I am getting back to the hood mid next week. Just wanted to give an update. Should have the headlight one done by next Friday or the following Monday, IF nothing else comes in.

I do have the regular one done and I will be testing it next week on my car. I don't see any problems, but I want to make sure.

It has been pretty slow and we have to jump on work whenever it comes in immediately. Luckily, we have stuff that seems to come in at convenient times right when another project ends. good for my bottom line, but bad for you guys. I am sorry for the delay in getting these to you guys , I truly am. I know some of ya'll are looking forward to this and I hate to make you wait. Especially after all the help this community has given me over the years with getting my car going.

Is all this side work for you...or is this your business?

This is side work at my business. I have a shop that does fiberglass work on various things, but took this on on the side to help the guys get more work and get desired parts to you guys cheaper.

Ahh, this makes sense now! I wish I had the capabilities to do fiberglass work at my company...but I can't complain, its nice having all the sheet metal resources We also do injection molding, but no matter how much I tell upper management to get into making car parts, they never listen

i can't believe some of the **** they did. it was crazy. in one episode they are using the wall socket to weld! in another there a whole crew of slaves scraping the paint off the roof with old hacksaw blades! did you see the 8" wheel spacers? death traps is what they're building. but even though they are making fugly cars, the fact that they did even that with the tools they had was kinda amazing.

they are using 26 gauge steel, you can bend that with your fingers easily. This car is a death trap.

for the first episode they used 6" truck spacers.
The spacers look like these but the mounting plates are much wider apart since this is a 3" suspension spacer




if it says that click refresh, it did that for me too but refreshed it and it started. Fukin utube...
