    I cant wait for the piece you mite do ,on using a shrinking disc. I've had a disk, but never thought of using it to smoothing out my tail gate. I just wanted you to know there is interest in the practice. Hope you decide to it.

    I typically work on a labor+ materials basis on rust repair since I don't know what surprises I'll find under paint/bondo/outer skin, and/or what level of finish the owner is going to want. I don't do this as a business, iI am a retired jeweler/goldsmith with 50 years experience shaping metal, building hotrods, race cars, just wanting to supplement my income, so I don't charge what the pro shops do. My labor charge is typically 25.00/hr work time, 10.00/hr parts research/chasing. + materials. I do only first quality work, fully metal finished or skim coated. Please don't ask me to do a slap and grind heavy bondo job. If you want to save money I can advise you on doing the prep work. I also offer one on one or small group instruction if you want to learn to DIY.

    Hey there. so, you mentioned that you do some of the metal patching. Can you give me a rough idea of what it would cost to have you do, say, a cab corner? I would be able to figure out and do this stuff myself but i also weigh the time value of having someone do it who actually knows what they are doing. Thanks!!

    Hello AX.
    If this gets through and if you are willing to give me some advice on my power steering conversion (I just saw your extensive thread from some years ago), would you please drop me a short note? Thank you, Fred

    Hello AxRacer, I have been reading all of your info on MIG welding and was going to order some of the Esab Easy Grind but they no longer make it in 2 lb spools. Is there anything else that you recommend? I have some Lincoln L-56 0.025 ER70s-6. BTW. I am working on the original body for our 51' F-1.

    Hope you don't mind me bothering you but you seem to know a lot about alignment and front end issues. When the engine is running should there be play in the steering wheel. Nothing moves when moving the steering wheel apprx 1" both directions then power takes over and things move, after the inch. I've had friends move the steering wheel while I search for issues and nothing is moving but the shaft connected to the steering column and the steering wheel it's self. The sector is a rebuilt, I'm thinking it's bad. I tried to adjust the adjuster on the side of the sector but it's tight already. I jacked the wheels off the ground and tightened the screw until I couldn't move it any more. Play was still there and oddly enough there was no stiffness in the steering. I was moving the steering wheel lock to lock to make sure I didn't tighten the sector too much. This is driving me crazy!
    Thanks again,
