    Yes Yes. My back seat pan had a bump in it. Think the exhaust came loose in the front and jamb the road bent down and brought the curve over the rear end up and smashed the rear seat pan. I managed to hammer it back out also. Doing a good job and keep at it Mate. You will be on the road before me. :drinks:

    You know welding this old sheet metal is worst than trying to weld a beer can. You start to weld and then metal just blow's away. Doing a fantastic job. Keep up the good work. Wont be long and it will be on the road again. :thumbsup2:

    It sure is amazing how fast the dust piles up when where not their. You will get it buddy. Just one of those thing's. No matter how hard we try to keep the shop clean.

    AZ Desert,
    You guys should try living in the desert. I can get a coat of barn dust in two weeks if we get a breeze.
