The Daily Grind

I have been putting some time in at a Classic car body shop here in Kansas City. It keep me on my toes! I'm working on a 1963 Chevy station wagon doing a lot of rot repair that might scare off most guys but after spending most of my life in the rusty north east fixing this stuff and cutting out a floor pan is a bag of shells.

I deleted the A/C stuff off the fire wall and made up new panels with factory looking ribs so it will have that Mod smooth look. I braced up the body before I cut the floor out just to be on the safe side. there was no way the one piece floor was going in as "One piece" so I took it apart and put it in a piece at a time. You can see the cross braces in place. I'll have the pans welded in soon.

More Progress!

I finished filming my next dvd, "HOW TO BUILD FIBERGLASS BODIES AT HOME" this week! I still need to sit down and edit 9 hours of film but it will be avabile in a few months.

The "Baja Bandeeto" is going to be one hot show rod. I am using a yellow tinted bubble for this car between that & the crazy paint it will burn your eyes out!

Steering Committee

I got a little work done setting up the crazy steering linkage on the Bandeeto last night. I'm trying to get it as close to the inner body as I can so my foot wont hit the shaft when I hit the gas pedal.
