Kind words, thank you.

Got the wing and quarter paned blocked back this evening and a last coat of primer on. Should get some colour on tomorrow night.

Got the radiator boxed up and I'll try and get it to a friend tomorrow who can arrange for the brackets to be repositioned. One day I'll need to spark up my TIG and learn how to weld aluminium. But not today.

Re: Super Duper Haggis Hauler II - The Resurrection

You know what, I really am beginning to thing there is some light at the end of the tunnel.

Although only hung there temporarily and to keep them out the way as I'm sorting out the garage, there are signs of a finished truck beginning to peep through.

And now I have had the radiator brackets moved Ive as much space as I can get between it and the water pump.

Just great to see this truck progressed so far.

You really have done an incredible job there mate.

If you look at a pic of what you started with it should make you smile.

Light at the end of the tunnel indeed.

Cheers Ryan.

I was looking at the pictures last night and I'm pleased to say that there is no comparison. That said I'm not happy with my painting but then again I'm an electrical fitter to trade not a painter!

Also, got the Vette in the garage yesterday for its winter hibernation. In truth if I could get the truck in there it would be in but the door is not tall enough (a small modification is on the card though and I'm sure a removable panel can be sorted out).

Once the dolly's were used I could get a nice path down the side. Not sure what I'm going to do with it over the winter but I do want to get some essentials done like checking all the suspension and brakes, handbrake, make some kind of shield to stop the exhaust getting hit or alter the exhaust (Id like to fit new silencers/mufflers as its only got two cherry bombs fitted and they are too loud). Really need to sort out the seatbelts as they don't work properly. But I'm also considering a respray. Nothing fancy just a stop gap as the paint really is crap.

However, truck comes first but even that may hit a wall soon as my dad has to go back into hospital to have his hip replaced for a 3rd time. Not quite sure where that is going to take us both right now. He will probably be in for 3 months this time but its when he gets out and what condition he is in. I'm likely to have to stay with him a bit. But there are positives in that. I can do some work on his Cobra and try and get him a step closer to fitting the 509 into it. We will see.
