I'm not sure if he listens to messages but he might. I know he doesn't text.

Body guy was real happy when I showed up with a drivers door. Thanx to Carl the build is full steam a head. He was just finishing off few repairs. 
I though for sure he was going to need another trunk divider but said piece of cake to fix

 I saw that but man the way things are these days a guy is almost happy just to get something. I can't believe how many supply issues exist.

 That is why so many Beaumonts get sold on down the line. Nobody wants to pull them apart and deal with stuff like this, especially when it is tempting to part them out for a few measly dollars.

I'd say the gaps & alignment look good so far. That is not always assured.
I like template on the quarter. To me, if the emblem looks too high on the quarter on a '66 SD, it is properly placed.

Nice work! A true craftsman.....you don't need 5000 sq ' 6 guys and a white floor. Just a guy that takes pride in his work and is proud of it. Looking sweet Kevin!

Nice work! That looks like roll bar padding on his stands?? I keep taping mine up ( sheet metal edges cut it). Maybe a pool noodle? Good idea anyway.

Just finishing the last of the welding. I kinda was thinking to take a break from this one and gets some welding done on the B body cars but he wanted to finished this one off completely first. I had thoughts of doing a colour change but staying with original colour
