See the car is telling you something, it wants to be an SD 4dr biggrinbiggrin

Congrats to James on the licence! So seeing as the 4dr isn't done, he is driving the Canso?

Did you manage to get real power hooked up in the shop to get all that work done?

Neither of us have had time to drive it.cry Power is next on my "to do' list. Still running off heavy cord and loooong airline from the house. Will need heat for when I paint and a bud gave me a fairly new oil furnace and tank. Poured a pad outside with a roof over top as not to take up valuable shop space.smile Note to Doug:there is a beer fridge installed now.smile

Had a beer there the other day! Nice little shop in the woods. Had to be blindfolded and led in and out. The location is highly secret to keep out the riff-raff! :)

Wow, good for you. When you start something you don't fool around but get it done. Looking good. Is James into the body work too?

 Not so much....thinks it's a bit messy/dirty. Does like the tearing apart/putting together though.

I hope your not insinuating something towards me?

Don't believe everything my furry little buddy tells you.

Looking good Jim. Progress I like it.
As a side note I did play garage Tetris on the weekend. The 6 bangers are out where we can get at them, not promising anything but there is hope.
