    I did this upholstery on my Camaro about 15 years ago - got a pic of it today,...

    Camaro seats are REALLY EASY compared to Fiat Spider seats! I also know how to repair the foam buns.
    I'd be happy to help you through re-upholstery of your Z. Gosh, your dad's shop is just up the road,...
    Let me know when you begin planning and we'll talk about obtaining the sewn vinyl, etc,...
    Nice that you are learning to weld,...I have arc spot-welded a few times, but that's about it. Wish I had a MIG.
    Hopefully, I'll have MY Camaro out of the garage soon (roads are pretty dry, now!) and I'll come visit for a more appropriate introduction.
    Are you working on your Z on Saturdays again? I'll email,...

    Thank you AB! Man, those seats look nice. And the whole interior!
    It'll probably be a while before I start looking into doing the seats. It's just one of the many things that have been on my mind. What I can see of the metal parts of the seats is pretty rusty, like everything else, but at least they've been indoors for all the years the Camaro itself was outside.
    Yep, still going out to work on her almost every Saturday. I'll be out there this Saturday unless something comes up.

    All we got was a trace of snow,...did you guys get some serious snow? Sun is melting our's away right now.
    Great visit with Jerry, and his dad, Bruce, on Saturday! Also a magnificent drive in the Camaro, after a lot of months,...!
    Finished the Spider:

    Got maybe a 1/4 inch in Greeley. Maybe a 1/2 inch in Longmont (work).
    That was a great visit, glad to have gotten to meet you!
    Your Camaro is also an inspiration to get some good progress on mine! (like I needed more!)

    Holy smokes! We are having a downpour,...
    Nice to have rain again. This will rid us of the leftover Thanksgiving 'snow'/ice!!

    Rain?
    I missed RAIN?
    I like the rain, wish we got more of it, as long as it doesn't hail, as seems to be the case more often than not anymore.
    Out for training at the company "Mothership" in Liechtenstein for the week, back home tomorrow.
    Hoping to be out at Dad's Saturday, but we'll have to see how jet-lagged I am.

    Stay safe!

    "Stay safe"?! My gosh, Jerry, YOU stay safe! You're just north of a whole country on pandemic lockdown! Travel safely.
    And YES, it poured here for about two hours on Sunday night! I'd guess that we got a lot more than 15 hundredths of an inch!
    Those of us here, in Colorado, should enjoy today, because the weather cools again for the next week - ten days,...

    Sent you an e-mail, AB, but for the others: I did get home safely. Europe has gone crazy over the virus, glad we got to come home when we did. I was training for an install onto one of our systems that was supposed to happen next week, but now it's not going to happen until after the crisis passes.

    Stay safe, and stay well.
