        Coming along great Wayne. Bet your wife is dying to take it out for a spin once the snow melts!

            At the rate you are working on it, I wouldn't be surprised if that morning came very soon!

                My redneck dust extractor ready to go tomorrow...

                ..and neat that my cheap spot welder arrived on Purolator about 10 minutes after I noticed that the right fender to headlight bucket's spot weld had let go. Can just get this unit up in there to weld it.

                  Always thought it would be handy to have a spot welder when working on these old cars. The arms are short, but still quite a bit a guy could use it for.

                        I have the same one Wayne works nicely. I see they are selling the 220 version again. How long for shipping Wayne? Couple of days??

                        Was almost a week before it was "shipped".. but that was a Saturday.. long weekend and then Purolator didn't pick it up unti Wednesday night. Depot fawked me around and delivered Monday. So two full weeks..

                        Pretty easy to make your own longer arms for the cost of some bar stock..
