Now that the patient is up on skates, the Rust Doctor is ready to operate!

Stay after it Torchie..and I'll just watch if you don't mind.

Do your new skates roll pretty easy? The ones I got from Jegs are just a little better than nothing. To the point that I seldom use them.

They roll fine once the casters are facing in the right direction. Pops.😳😜
Plus that little extra height makes it easier for me to get my legs under it if I am on the floor working.

Nice gift. I'm trying to get to the point I can get mine off the frame table and on the floor.

Default Part 1.

Thanks gang.
Brother came over yesterday and we spent the entire time(mostly) working on the hood.
For those of you that aren't in the collision trade. My brother brought his Pogo stick with him. Old school tool for sure.
We got the hinges and arms into a better position. This brought the rear hood edge down a bit.
Then we did a hinge adjust and put the springs back on. No better.
So we took the springs off again and unbolted the hinges from the cowl to see if the hood would then fit. Nope. Just that same .
To say that this is all a drag would be an understatement.
I am going to leave the hood alone for now. And think about what to do next.

PS dog leg and sill work.
Pics tell the story.
Lots of off and on and making sure things still fit as they should.
It got real hot here about 3:00. I had to call it a day.
More vvvv Tomorrow.
Keep on keeping on...
