its been over 1 year since i started to tear the rust out after not working on the truck for about 15 years. But I never lost the drive to build mt 54 panel/street rod.
and thanks to a great friend we are on our way to rebuild.

This is one way to install your doors when you have no help and you have a engine hoist.

Greg thanks the light is a fixture I had to Demo at a job and ends up these are LED lamps so they offer great light, was able to grab 3 of them so I put one on ceiling gave another to by friend that's helping me, put a extension cord on it so we can move it anywhere.

So My good friend that has been helping me with my body work spent about 6-8 months on the DL due to a bout with leukemia , and after recovering and back to work he ended up in the hospital with the Flu this weekend, but as he said every minute working on it gets me closer. So I went solo again and gave my "Frankenstein" more stitched. I will post more photo's also started fitting the Doors.
