    Don't be too stubborn to listen to the doctor though, I always remember the saying " If you can't breath, nothing else matters"

    Ditto hope you are feeling better. Fires here making it hard to breath for everyone, worse for people with preexisting lung issues. We have many sick babies at work, smoke hard on them too!

    I have been fighting stomach problems which they think is a side effect
    from COPD. I have had a friend helping other wise I would not get much done.
    Thank's for the support! I keep plugging away at it.

    Here's a few pics:

    Installed the rear roll down window, and got the seat belts in. I'm using 1/8" rubber
    matting with diamond plate design.

    I decided to run the mat up the firewall which I had dino mat on, and did not want to
    glue too. I used light gauge steel to cover that area, and glued the rubber to that. It
    can be removed.

    The doors drove me crazy! I had the reveal lines matched up perfect before
    last tear down, and they moved. Had to remove hinges, and tweak very
    carefully in my press to get things right again. Oh well.

    Just read through your whole thread, wow you've done some outstanding work. The frame fab, welding and body work are just super nice. I'm a respiratory therapist so I know about copd, you are a trooper for sure. Just be careful with that O2 in the shop, it would suck to light your face on fire while grinding or welding!

    Shine: It's great to hear your doing so well with reduced capacity. It's amazing what we can adjust to when needed.
    Yes they are bolted down, all grade 8 bolts, and installed according to Julianos install sheet.

    v8nuts: thanks for the kind words. I am aware of the dangers associated with oxygen, and let my friend
    do all the 'sparky' stuff! LOL I've been thru rehab 4 times, and all the therapists were great people!

    Thank's Mike, here's one more. Got the rad, and shell on this morning.
    was able to get shell insert in without any scratches! Also installed the
    stainless trim on the hood side of the shell. Hard to see in the pic. That will be it for awhile.

    It is looking so nice and I'm glad to hear you're getting better! I really like the mat you have chosen too. To me it just adds a sort of industrial era build theme.
