Whenever the topic arises, I always say that the best part of hot rodding and building cars is the friends you make along the way. I called Verne, my go-to paint and body guru to make sure I had the quarter panel alignment right. In his very Verne way, before I knew it, we were swinging into action. Quarter is now tacked up, and it's time for the long slow process of making two pieces of steel one piece of steel.

There are many aspects of this that I can and have handled on my own, but I'm certain I couldn't do it all nearly as well if I didn't have this crew of pirates helping to make it happen.

Thank you boys for coming over and making an event out of it!

We’ve been pretty diligent the last few days. Lots of welding. We’re pretty much to the point of grind off the high spots, fill in any blanks, rinse and repeat. This is fun.

His tenure warrants a supervisory position. Plus, when you’ve got an experienced paint and body man present, you let him work his magic. Mike will get his chance when things get mechanical.

Well, that and he spent hours with me getting things trimmed and fitted the day before. Verne came by to make sure we did it right. He spent a few minutes with it and then said “what are you waiting on?”, so I ceased waiting.

Someone's got to supervise.

Yup. We ran into that last night, cutting her hand while installing the export brace. We'll see if she wears gloves next time, lol. So many lessons getting learned.
