+1. Nice video. You got your gloves on while your wifey just jumps right in bare handed. Sweet! [patriot]

I am just getting started on body work at this point, still getting the final tools and supplies together, as well as working up the courage to attempt it myself. I did the body work on my FFR Cobra years ago but that was fiberglass, no dents to deal with. Never done a steel car before. I had my neighbor (a body and paint guy) come over and give me some direction, now I just need to get going.

I will be sure to post some progress pics. [patriot]

Sorry guys I broke my hand and didn't touch it for about 5 weeks. I have the cast off now and have started to work on it again. Still in the middle of body work at this point. Hope to have it in primer and have the motor pulled in the next few weeks.
