    Hello,Thank you, many yrs ago I didnt like body stuff either I was all about the mechanical stuff, learned it out of necessity otherwise my heaps wouldve never gotten put together.Id have to say for me body/paint took the longest to learn, Im still learning fab stuff ;picked up alot by watching many folks posting threads of their builds and the rest by doing, I guess every car brings something different,In this case its fun for me because its a car I've loved since I was a kid .,thanks

    Good hard work pays off doesn't it Carlos? You should be proud of yourself.
    Think outside the box. Use your imagination.
