Shawn moved to Phoenix from Oregon a few months back.  He came over this evening to work on a roof for his Vert 521.  The AZ sun is cooking his skinned head!  LOL

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!"

I think he stretched it 10".  He built this truck in Oregon.  I believe he is friends with Loren O.
