Ummmm, patience is not a word normally associated with me. Grit,determination,asshole,etc. , but not patience. LOL!!!!!

 rofl rofl rofl 

Was really hoping to see this thing at LS, but looks like a detour thru Cville may be in order.  Plus then I could check out the house too.  Both are looking great!!!

Wrong! Not itchy at all. Just have to be smart about it.

You'd be more than welcome. I now have 3-30 amp RV elec hookups at the shop and concrete to park on.

Hood is ready for final sanding prior to final fitting after hinging.

First pic is of it in the mold. Like the fringe?

The wife is a painter and will take a couple weeks (:lol: knowing her it'll be 4) to get the inside done. I might be able to do all final welding and incidental fabbing then. By that time,it's off to LS for some much needed R&R.

Dug up an old photo, damn no wonder he has her do the painting!!  ;) ;D
