Back at it....

Another weekend is upon me....  I basically have 3 weeks to build a car that needs 2 months worth of work....
Around 1998


This was the first run for this car.  It did not really go to well this time out.  It has been used quite a few times, but is still alive.  Look for a return in 2012.  It will almost fit in the back of my truck, now....

Lazy Friday....

It seems as much as I try to finish projects to relax, I end up getting in to other stuff...  I busted my butt on my own car for the Santa Maria show.  After that, I thought it was a good time to pull my Pontiac out and finish prepping it for paint in hopes to sell it off.  Then, about a week ago, demolition derby fever hit me again.  It seems totally stupid to go to the trouble to build a car with the purpose of beating it up...  Here is something even stupider.....  Build a car so that someone else can beat it up....  Well, after a couple of long days at the shop, I think I beat myself up worse than the car....  With that in mind, I took the day off....  It was nice to not get dirty today, but now I have to work twice as hard the next time....
Prep for paint...  Going for that lazer straight finish....  NOT....

Look at those naked arms..

Don't need that bumper corner going into tire...
