Worked on the custom grill today.
Removed all the screws and installed the faux rivets.
It's about a 10 footer right now. After some trimming and a good polish I may get it down to a 5 footer.
I also have a set of NOS parking light surrounds that will go on at a later date.
Working at doing at least one thing every day.

Step 3 of the leg process.
Test fit of the trial socket.
Its made out if plexiglass so the tech can see how it fits on the inside.
This one fits really well. No need for another test.
With the leg and ankle and foot parts all in stock the new real leg will be done next week. Record time I believe.

good news!
Now you just need to keep your current weight....

Does your health insurance cover this? I bet you could build a hotrod or two for that $$$...

Surprisingly it takes about a 25 lbs gain or loss to effectively change the fit.
Im currently at 197-198 and have been for about a month. The goal is to kerp it as close to 200 as i can. At this point that seems to be doe able. Im eating. Just not big portions but thats better then a month ago.🤮😳

This is why i use this leg shop, snopro.
There another place in our area but they are nothing but a factory. No personal service at all.
Im a bit surprised myself. I know the tech thinks it’s urgent as my current leg was built for someone 125 lbs bigger.
The concern for the stump is always foremost in everyone’s mind.
Everytime I see one of my medical team they all want to check the stump for sores or open wounds.
It will be nice to be able to get back full mobility.
