That truck and that dog go well togrther.  Lean and most probably mean.  Looks like a German Shepherd and Coyote mix [not intended to be snide, they do exist and are very smart!].

Whenever I think that I'm out of my mind for putting this much time and money into an old Datsun, all I have to do is look some of your threads to know that I'm not nearly as whack as you are.

You're going to skin a few knuckles, stand up too fast and bump your head, hunt around the floor for the nuts and bolts you dropped, invent a few new cuss words and when you're finished you'll say "That wasn't so hard after all!"

Quit taking pics of Betsy's ass and start working on her! ;)

I saw three of these parked outside the local Starbucks this morning, which tells me only one thing. There's too many self indulgent wieners in this city with too much bloody money. Now, if I was driving a 1973 610 four-door...

1st  Pic is grinding out pink filler (old body work 20yrs old maybe)had cracked , ,see if you see man in filler , the others are some bodywork done ,had to pull a couple spots and shrink to make flat ,need to use stud welder sometimes even though you can get behind metal for shrinking  ,also trying to keep work area small ,most of car is fine except Inland Empire sun facing surfaces beat up clear coat ,Upol Euro clear is going to give us free material to repair but man a lot of work still to re-clear car and do some small body repairs , will post door is in filler already.

  The last pic with Weds 16x7s +10 . I can't get over difference with wheels ,you guys may not like this but wheels and stance make up 75% of car looks in my opinion ,need both for complete package .

  As always here in office listen to weird music station on PC  ,you may get hooked www.indie1031.com hit listen live ,breakfast with the Smiths in morning cool show , and Passport approved  Euro trash.
