Great to have you back, torchie. Old cars don't want to give up their parts easily.

I didn't realize you still had to do the door top on the passenger side. Looking good! Hope you can keep at it during the winter.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The passenger side door top is chopped and just tacked together, snopro.
I didnít finish it yet due to the hinge issues.
I want to get the second hinge on it before I set the final gaps and such. And cut the curve into the upper frame rear corner.
Thanks everyone for the encouragement.
Keep on keeping on,,,,,

Hmmmm.
The 4x8 I bought last time was $80.
When I picked up the steel plate from my supplier he said to expect the price to be at least double that, now.
Iíll settle for that rather then what you posted bruno.
Iíll let everyone know what I find out.
