Finally finished up the electric bear claw latches I started putting in who know how many years ago, with a much different skill set. I would do it differently now, but it's good for a daily driver. It feels good to finally finish it, and to knock something off the extensive to-do list.

@empire_fabrication well thank you sir. You'd be proud of me. I've been here for 7.5 hours so far today.

What else you get done

@cretin

@cretin
@empire_fabrication Finished the door latches. Worked on what I could on the firewall without having help from someone. Fabbed all the bungs for the plates on the inner firewall. Probably gonna metal prep the fenders, then cruise.

Kyle I'd like to offer to drop by and lend a hand whenever you need help. Problem is I am lazy and don't want to ruin my clothes. Looks good @cretin

:) I am going nuts here. It has been two weeks since I have seen an English speaking television program other than CNN and BBC World News. It repeats every 30 minutes. I can recite both broadcasts from memory. Now I am carrying on conversations with anyone who will talk over instagram! Grab mychal (why the fuck doesn't he spell his name like everyone else?) and have him post up some photos of the tbird. I'm rambling on now @cretin

@cretin

@cretin
@pcjr1957 You mean you aren't talking to me because I'm a great conversationalist?!

Although I'm sure there are other people out there who deserve it more then me, I'll go ahead and throw my hat into the ring. Here she is, my '54 chevy 210 post. This is the first classic car that I ever bought and it used to be my daily driver. I took it off the road years ago to do a couple things, and before you knew it the whole car was taken apart and an entire build was started. It's been way too long since progress was made. While I'm certainly not complaining about my job, since I'm building cars all week, I can find it hard to find the motivation to get back to the shop on my time off to work on my own car. As they say, the shoemaker has no shoes. Well, I want some shoes. I don't want this car to sit neglected anymore, I want to make it my daily again, and I think having a rendering of the finished product can be the light at the end of the tunnel to resurrect the motivation to get to the shop. @eblackdesign #eblackdesignproject2014

Have any more patch panels for sale??? :)

@cretin

@cretin
@deltronicus All I've got is a quarter panel, but I need that. I think the only '54 stuff I have left to sell is some trim.

@deltronicus

@deltronicus
Right on. I bought the drivers side qp you had:)

@cretin

@cretin
@deltronicus hope it worked out well for you. Let me know if there is anything else you're looking for and I'll let you know if I come across it.
