Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Torchie, I feel the same way about watching the TV version of 'reality'. You don't get to learn what you thought you would. I tried to watch 'Ice Road Truckers' a couple of times. Same problem. That show was for people that never trucked on ice roads. I spent my whole adult life learning how to 'not screw-up', -------- but that doesn't make good TV. It does make good business sense, though. I threw up a lot, watching 'Ice Road Truckers', not at the harsh conditions, but at the stupid, avoidable predicaments they got themselves into.
It turns out Torchie, that you don't have to watch TV to be a good builder, so carry on.

Can you believe that crap has been on for 14 years?

When people ask me if I watch them my reply is always the same. Those shows are for people that have never built a car in their life.

You got that right!

OK.
Back to "The One legged Man" garage show.
My version of a Pipe anvil
Filled in that gapping hole I created.
Also wrapped the end of the rockers.
I'm formulating a method for the floor bracing and Body mounts that don't require me to bend up 16 Gauge metal.
Maybe tomorrow as my one and only friend is coming over to help organize the shop a bit. Pulling out the donor car so I will have more work space.

It's amazing how much you have gotten done. I agree on most of the reality car shows. There are a couple I like but there is a lot of content that has nothing in it.

Thanks kenny!
I may have to take it a bit easier tomorrow.
The residual limb (Stump to you.) was really angry by the time I got finished. Had to take the leg off and spend a couple of hours just sitting.
Back to my techs for some tweaking I suspect.

Aw heck Torchie, well at least you know you always have your friends here. Of course we are not much help when it comes to the physical stuff.

I would imagine getting the new leg tweaked just right can be a painful experience. The one legged man show gets a from here.

I think the title for Torchie's new reality show should be "Wobbly's one legged car building".
