    Famous quotes from my shop:
    "you should leave for a little while"
    "can we take this tire off, I need more room to run (for the sawsall)"

    The above from my brother the sawsall guru.

    "I'd like to leave the headlights in the stock location" This one from me.

    Back to work now.

    I'll have to be by this weekend.
    We've practiced on a rolled K5, for the rear trim. Right now we're trimming the core support and beating the seams down on the body. Actually right now I'm chewing mexican food, but later, we'll go back to it.
    The headlights can stay, steering box must be moved, rear fenders will be tubbed, etc. lots to do.

    Stephen, your not only a tech wizard, you're also a comedian. LMAO!

    Can't wait to see the trim PIC's. Remember...measure twice, cut once.
