    It is pretty tight on the inside but I think I can manage. I cut out some flanges today and started a set of headers.

    I think I have enough plates to finish it but if I don't I'll let you know! I wanted to use bomber seats but they are sooo expensive so I'm going to try and make a pair.

  10. Man those seats are awesome. The backs almost look like tombstones, all they need now is RIP and a date engraved in them... :lol:

    Thanks! I finished up the seats, progress is probably going to really slow down because I just got a new job today at a restoration shop so I'll be working on other peoples cars more then mine.

  15. Looks great, congrats on the job. If you put half as much attention to detail and skill into customer's projects as you do your own you'll do well.

    I'm pretty pumped on the job! On my last day of school one of my teachers asked me if I had a summer job because her dad was looking for a mechanic for his shop, I had another job lined up to do carpentry work but this ended up being way more my speed.

    that's "positive earth" in the queen's english. lol
     
  19. That makes it sound worse. I miss my old Mercedes diesel all brown grounds. But then you have the joys of vacume leaks.

    Old Dodges and Plymouths (40's) had a positive ground. In the last two days I've learned that almost every British car leaks oil and they can be really unreliable, I think I'm going to stick with American iron.
