    LOL - I defer to Sal - but at least my forearms are bigger since I got to scrape the same freaking areas over and over . . .

    so can I assume they don't use Eastwood's De-kote in the old country, either?

    I see....the discussion on the tails was confusing, at first....basically the P3 vs. P4 extended differently to the bottom...parallel with the door bottom, or not...

    Interesting note about the flat bar vs. tubing replacement on the frame, as well....nice find! ;)

    Hi

    The sill where the tail rests is square tubing on both the P3's and P4's. (P 3/4 0846,412P 0854 and P4 0856)

    Texas!
    Is this John the same guy who did the work on #0846? I remember giving a lift to a guy and his wife at the FFQC last year who said that he did the body work. I was amazed because he was pretty young to know how to beat panels. If I recall correctly, he actually had an art background. Have I got this straight, or have the bats got out again?

    It is great to see a young person get into this. From what I recall when we talked, he actually has an art background, yes? From one form of art to another!

    Great work, Dale

    Nice pics :)

    What does the expression "Wax on, Wax off" mean - is it a quote from a movie?
