Hey Torchie, just concentrate on the bodywork on your body. We can wait for the garage work.

BTW, I'm sticking with my lacquer primer. At least if you breathe it it won't kill you,

Seems like they did a TV show describing that.....

Six Million Dollar man!

Don't know if that's what it cost or just how good he felt when it was over!
Here's hoping you feel like Six Million Dollars when all is said and done, and that your insurance covers it all!

Thanks bob.
I've still got a new gallon lacquer primer in my paint cabinet as well. I'm thinking about using Evercoat G2 Feather fill on this one though. It's been around since the at least the 80's so not exactly new technology. We will see. Have to get to that point first.

Thanks Bama. In my world if my insurance doesn't cover it. It doesn't happen. Been at this a long time now and have gone to the mat more then once with insurance companies. Even to the point of litigation.(Acting as my own attorney as I couldn't afford one). Sad when it comes to that as most people don't have the time to document and deal with all that BS so they just pay the bill. Which is what the Ins. companies rely on.
I learned a long time ago to NEVER pay the first or second bill from any Hospital or DR. Most times they bill you before or at the same time they may or may not be billing your insurance Company.

I hope the doctors get it all figured out. Sounds like a lot to take in. Good luck with everything.

Thanks all.
Shop time.
PS rear fender.
When I tacked this side in place. The rear lined up great. The front. Not so much.
Measured it 14 different way. Compared it to the DS. The best I can come up with is the patch panel I made.
I used the same buck I used for the DS so who knows. Is it me? Is it Dodge? Time to move forward.
Made up pieces to fill the gap.
Much welding and even more grinding to do.
That's it for today.
Keep on keeping on.....
Torchie
