Ugh. So sorry about your loss. I like animals better than most people and my own dog 'Khan' is what is helping me to get through my own rough times. I am not sure I would know what to do without him. As others have said, life goes on and in time the pain will give way to happy memories.

In the meanwhile, we throw ourselves back into our projects until that happens.

Yesterday while waiting for some VPA to set, I took a look at a few interior things coming up. I noticed that the ignition key will not come out. Any thoughts or things to try to see why this is happening............................... ....................................

Saw this car on Ebay and liked the shade of WBY. Contacted the seller to see if I could get some info on the paint. Well the person contacted me back and said Christen was located in Fla. only 30 min.from me, So I took a ride over to meet him. Christen who has been painting for over 30 years was very helpful in answering all of my questions and showing me the products he used on that car. Pretty cool! Gave me some step by step directives to hopefully achieve similiar results. His booth is awesome and I know that plays a major part. Showed me a lot of products that work well in the hot humid weather of Florida;
We will see!

Continued the body work on the 71 today. The hood fit was terrible . Driver side low the passenger side high. Know without knowing the history of the car it was important to do some investigating. What I cam up with was the inner fender on the drivers side sat off the fender where the top rubber seal is. Ah! took the heat gun and released the fender and applied some downward force and it moved. Took SEM adhesive and applied it to the inner fender and now I have a much better fit. A little VPA and it should be done. The other photo is the primer that will be used. I talking with some local shops this product works relly well in the hot humid Florida weather. Just sayin................................... ........................................

So here are the areas Jason that you can look at or heat and release the adhesive to adjust the fender heights up or down. Once you get them close you can use VPA to dial them in. Hope this helps.

Well found out today that upon close inspection the lower front crossmember needed to be replaced. Ran down to Ecklers and picked one up. Raised the front just enough to take the weigh of the member and switched them out. Not to bad of a job since the one I did on the 69 had no body in the way.
Also got the call that my exhaust fan was in for the paint booth. Things starting to pop around here.

Now how cool would that be.

Fit and finish is one thing these cars are all about, Time consuming but hey when your retired time is one thing you have. I think!
Glad I could help Tony.

So here are some updates from my world. Our beautiful Nova (6) now has a rescued little boy (2) named Bruno. He is a very good little boy and very sweet.
He was kept is a crate for 8hrs while owners worked and then another 8hrs when they slept. You do the math. With 2.5 acres he has plenty of room to run and wear out Nova. On the car front I noticed the upper section of the passenger door was a little low. Knowing from experience that a shim at the top would fix it but knock out the rest of the door I decided to VPA the small section versus the whole door.
Just wanted to give an update. Oh, I also spoke with Dub and the PPG library who gave me the OMNI WBY #2351 so I ordered it. Guess we'll see.

It's nice that you were able to rescue your new addition Bruno.
You have two beautiful Dobies.
I can't imagine what Max would do if he were kenneled 16 hrs a day.
He never sits for more than a few minutes, we take him hiking all over California, walk him 3-4 miles almost daily and we run him over 4 miles a couple evenings a week when its not too hot.
He loves to chase deer.
If we had acreage, we would have two.

Sounds like he has a great life and I'm sure he knows it. Pretty dog, going to be a big boy. Our Rusty came from a vet family living in cal . They had to many dogs 4 and small so Rusty had to go.
Thanks for the pictures of Max.

Hey Roger. Hard to know which one to watch now, the 69 or the 71. When I had two build projects going at once I often found myself thinking which one to work on next. How is that working for you?

Not sure what the hell I'm doing David. It's a lot of fun but not sure on certain days if any head way is getting done on either. Made a new spray booth and have added more lights, better RTI filter, high flow fittings and just trying to make the back yard booth has good as it can be. Getting ready over the next few weeks to prime and do my first metallic. War Bonnet Yellow
