    Thanks for the comments guys. Got quite a bit of snow and ice here. Its only 18 degrees right now. I doubt my little heater would have a chance against this temperature so not much has been done. I may go out there and try to get at it again.

    that foam works good, looks like the kind I got at Ben Franklin, gaskets, and so on.. Looking good! I think you've helped me decide what to do with fans, etc when i get to it.

    Well, we had sleet and freezing rain from late thursday through friday until about 3 pm. Then snow until early morning. Got about 4 inches id say. But at least a quarter inch of ice. Sunday should be bringing more sleet and freezing rain.

    I tried to heat my shop up but a only to a mere 40 degrees. Little to chilly to spend alot of time out there.

    stopped by man i read your whole thread twice !!! been lurking around for
    months finally decided to join . my first car was a 70 camaro in 1978 second car was a 76 rally sport then a 81 z blue code 29 and finally a 79z four speed
    code 24 like yours , sold to buy my first house . so now twenty years later for my fifty birthday i bought a 81z to restore just like the one i used to have ,never could get it out of my mind . Going to start a thread later and going to
    ask you lots of questions along the way . watching you grow up and mature
    as your thread progressed along was so cool . You should be so proud of what you have accomplished and i can't wait to see the finished results . Be careful in that bad weather ..... eddie
