    It was my first time, needless to say I had a great time! Will definitely have to go back.

    It may seem small, but today was a milestone for me. This thing is rolling! 20181105_140934.jpg 20181105_140528.jpg 20181105_140521.jpg 20181105_140457.jpg

    No problems. It was an awesome trip and a great show, hopefully I will make it back!

    Spent yesterday and will continue today clearing garage for the winter, getting the snowmobile dug out. Have the cars area pretty well cleared out. Going to be putting up a plastic wall on sliders so I can keep the metal work and dust out of the main side this winter.

    Yeah, it is difficult to keep track of all these parts. I always said I would have it neat and organized. Just not enough room to be that way. Struggle to keep stuff together. Lol.

    I think I need a project board... Kind of feel like I dont really know what to do next. I could
    1. Put the passenger door back on.
    2. Still need to find another drivers door and fender.
    3. Wanting to do a roll cage
    4. Sanding and priming front end sheetmetal.
    5. Replacing bad sheetmetal.
    6. List of components that need to be cleaned sanded and primed.

    Guess I am just not sure where to start lol. It all needs to be done.

    I saw a solution for the oblong holes in the lower control arm , go to Lab-14 site, he has a kit that will fix that problem , I ordered it , for the install of the DSE arms I am putting on, seeing as how, I have to move up to the 9/16 bolt for the lower arms,

    It all looks good. I was doing a similar project on a 70 Cutlass, before it got stolen. People don't realize all the work in restoring a car, but working on it and having it come out looking good is a nice feeling.
