    I already have that problem, after close to 30 surgeries my body looks like a tic-tac-toe board. Might be the reason why so many women are attracted to me, LMAO fat chance

    Testing for the final trim. What I found odd was the donor firewall was a half inch wider. But then as we all know these older trucks were really never exactly the same if you took a tape measure to it…..joe

    I’ve seen worse repaired. Yes it’s a lot of work to go through but once somebody ruins some thing the only thing that can be done is cut out the crap and replace it. It wouldn’t be the first time I’ve cut a firewall out and replaced it. Just extra practice.…..joe

    It's better if it's a half inch wider than a half inch narrower mate!

    Well let’s just say I spent an ample amount of time in the garage spot welding, grinding, spot welding, grinding and spot welding and grinding again. This is what I came up with. Looks like pretty good penetration by looking from under the dash. I would do a half dozen spot welds and then cool it off with an airhose, and then move down 6 to 8 inches and do the same and just kept repeating that over and over. Not bad for a guy that never took a welding or autobody class of any kind and a self taught in both. You learn a lot of stuff when you’re around people that does those things as long as you pay attention ask questions and practice.

    A helipad at a Church !! .. is this how God shows Up ? .. i ride my bicycle about 25 miles a week and since it has gotten so crowded on the high way lately i drive several miles away and ride in parks or on walking paths such as is at this church in southern Tenn. .. i pedal around for an hour or so which gets me about 5 miles of riding in .. i have the pinto back on the road again but it has some issues .. i think i mentioned in my last post that i had welded on the spring perches at the wrong angle .. i have crutched it up with angle shims for the moment with every intention of cutting the perches back loose and correcting the angle someday but someone relieved me of my welder recently .. i know exactly who took it and have hopes of getting it back someday ..i also drilled my own 4 lug bolt pattern in the 5 lug axles and seem to have gotten one off center just a tiny bit .. i have a high speed wobble .. i may or may not worry about that .. i dont drive the car very much .. went to a car show nearby today and this little pinto was there .. a 17 thousand mile all original jewel ..

    of course God doesn't need a helipad.

    That is for his faithful servants.
