well its been sitting in the garage dismantled for about holy crap... going on 3 years now?! wow. i didnt think it was that long. there has been a rough patch in my family which has caused my restoration on my Y88 to slow down.

I dont want to take the heat from ricks thread so if ya wanna pm me thats cool too.

Great looking car rick!

idle
been busy
vacation then rivival from vacation and i just opened my own night time body shop. a trucking company is keeping me too busy. i put in 50 hours at my day job and 30 hours in at just this trucking company last week. their deal is cool but unfair. I go to them, they buy supplies. they pay me $30/hr to fix their trucks. well i just did 2 trucks this week. if brought to my place on the side it would have been $3,000 to fix them. well they bought all supplies (cheap ones too) and i have $900 into labor not fair. should be 2500 but hey it will help me get back on my feet faster and i suppose its not my shop getting grimey and i forgot how much i hate fiberglass. lol
i think she will be at idle for a few more weeks. my brother will be back from N.C. in a week and he'll have time to help me with welding just to the car moves forward somehow.
