    Made another big leap this weekend - got the shell on the home made rotisserie. The design was inspired by szalkuskt. It rotates well and feels solid, so can't wait to roll it out into the driveway and get some real work done!

    Looking good Aaron, it's moving right along.

    Thanks for the parts, they found good homes. It was nice meeting you Saturday. Maybe I can stop by for a longer visit next time I'm in that part of town.

    Right on man, glad those parts found a home. I would have felt bad taking them to the junkyard knowing they'd get melted and sent to China as scrap. Feel free to swing by anytime you are in my neck of the woods :)

    February should be a good month - going to rock and roll on the shell, the frame and the rear axle housing.

    I have actually started thinking about hiring someone to do all the welding work and then painting the car myself. Is that something any of you guys have done?

    I am not prepared to dive into any welding work, at least on this car. I have painted this car before (and others) so I am not apprehensive about doing that, esp since I have clean body panels. I know I'd save a ton in money - just a lot to think about.

    If you just have floor pans to do it is not hard at all. If you have a friend with a welder and can get it done cheap probably ok. If it's going to cost more than the price of a welder then you might think about doing it yourself. Plus you get a welder out of the deal.
