    US Cartool on stiffening pieces. Even cheaper as a complete kit. I did lower radiator support, upper cowl, lower front subframe, torqueboxes, & frame connectors.

      Hey guys, i debated on saying anything seeing it's been so long, thought it fair to share a bit, im still kicking and still have the bird, trying to get this new small but helpful building up has made plenty of problems and all the yard and garden, ect has to be done but this winter i plan to be back on the bird, right now im still finishing all this and to generate money for things like the RR i bought an excellent shape 68 Ford 1/2 ton im trying to get done before winter set's in with paint... i did give my word to and old friend of my son i would paint his car for him if he has it ready to do before the white stuff gets here, after that its keep my wood burner going and shop ill be in.. I hope all is well with all you, one night im going to try to settle in and check on everyone's projects, but no, i still have it and fully intend to finish it. God bless ya-all.....

        Hey, hey! Good to see you posting. It has been a while. You're no different than a bunch of us. I notice a lot of projects have been slow, mine included. Oh well, we can only play when we can pay! Good to here your still planning ahead for it. Good luck with the building, every inch of sheltered space is invaluable!

Be safe now tonight, God Bless. Ron....

                                    Happy new year Ron. Glad to hear everything is going ok with you. Don't fret about not getting at the bird, family comes first always. I have had a busy year with work and my little guy. I did manage to find a little time for progress on the charger but I'm hoping for more in 2017. Hope to see more from you soon. All the best from the great white north :thumbsup:

                                          Ron,

                                          Happy New Year and good to hear from you. Yes, life gets in the way sometimes, and that's OK - get back at it when you can and we'll be anxiously awaiting new pictures and updates.
