Last few days have been fun.
Paul now has lefty ready for a thin smear of filler, which he wants to do next week.
Ol lefty (still off at the moment) is waaaaay straighter than it ever was.
That meant ol Uncle Kev needed the beaver and door back to bare and then a shot of sealer.
Got everything prepped yesterday ready for a 9am spray job.
Started early and got the glove box and air vent into bare metal to be ready as well.
I'm trying to get the fiddly Shit done and fit it in where i can.
I also need to be able to roll the car out and retrieve it again, so had a test run to see how it went. 👍
Very soon, i'll be putting the car out to strip the roof and rear quarters back to bare metal.
Be buggered if i'm doing that inside.

Nah, if i was to go to Summernats, you'd just drive it there.

I have little to no interest in car shows etc, so that will most likely never happen.  ;D

Besides, if i did wanna take both, i'd drive the Fleetwood and give the ol girl Marvin to drive.

yea fair all, but imagine the sight of teh Fleetwood+ trailer with car on it, although you'd have to paint the fleetwood same colour, and the trailer so it all matched

yea I dont mind car shows, just when you can wander around and appreciate the cars themselves, talk to owners etc - or even a cruise or go to woah... but burnouts etc dont interest me at all

I went to summernats last in 1988 before it was even called the summernats.

I have gone to the odd show here an there, but these days, they just bore the tits off me.
Too old, too grumpy i think
