Hello
This is a couple pics of my painted frame. The rear bars to the trunk will have to welded in when the body goes on as well as a couple uprights
I am going to run the brake and fuel lines first, and maybe some of the front suspension, before the body goes on.....not much though

take care
Tom
I am a tad behind schedule on this, but I will still get it started up and drive it around before the snow flies

Hello
The little Rat Rod T-bucket, may be stolen from the grand kids and made into another project.....notice the lawn motor with the fresh engine I think it will be an easy swap...LOL
If the car is rolling around the yard before the snow files, it will still need completing. I would not have the interior, door assembly, lights, bumpers, trim on it etc
The rear end and motor is being taken care of by someone else, and I have had all of the parts on the car. I do have to paint and detail the parts as they go on although........more time
It sure does take a lot of time, but I really want to hear it fire up
Have to keep trying
take care
Tom

You're gonna have to stop spending so much time on the web if you want to git-r-done before the snow flies. You're probably gonna have to quit sleeping too...maybe even quit your job...

Well, I'm not sure how to take that but if I offended you I am sorry. I was joking as I know how frustrating it can be to find the time to build a car.

Hello Chuck
I am sorry if I took it the wrong way. I have not had a good week..at work or at home
I think our place will close in the next year or two....guys are at each others throats, and we are still getting over a 6 yr court case(home stuff), which is still having issues with custody
I am having enough troubles with negativity....my car is my only escape
sorry for the rant
Tom

Tom,

Please accept my apologies as well if my comment in any way offended you.

I can certainly relate to bad days and weeks etc.

We are family here and although we may step on toes once in a while, we never want to feel like we pushed someone out the door.

If it would help I offer my skull for you to punch on, just miss the soft spot and hit the metal plate.

Hey Tom,
We all have our bad days. I just wanted to be sure I didn't run anyone off.
Anyway I see you've been adding pics, the car looks like it's coming along well and you're doing a nice job. That's quite a rig for lifting the body. Looks like a decent job of balancing too. When I built mine I would have to gather at least a couple of friends and lift the body off or on by hand. Keep up the good work, I know you'll get it done.
