I was wondering what you were talking about... missed that particular post. Even better with the stack injection.

Thanks for the comments guys!

Wow, what a frustrating day today. Took the day off cause weather was gonna be nice, planned on putting a big dent in all the bondo work (pun intended). Started blocking out my bondo and it wouldn't feather out, all the edges were etching, I could scratch it off. I'd already wiped a lot of dents so now had to remove it all and start over.

Pissed off at that so thought I'd finish a couple bits of welding. Got so frustrated at my 30 yr old Snap On welder that I kicked it a few times and went and bought a new Lincoln welder. Picked up another brand of bondo to try as well.

Put the new welder together only to find out it won't work at all, no power period. Called the dealer and of course they say bring it back, that blows my weekend.

Decided to go back to the bondo, start grinding off the bondo and I see oil coming out of my grinder, throwing spots all over the panel. Compressor pump is now toast, oil all in my newly hung lines to boot. Gonna pull the pump off tomorrow and see if there is any hope for it. I ended up not getting a thing done, what a waste of a nice day. Should have just gone to work : (

Suspension fun this weekend, got a couple friends coming over (mechanics) to give their blessing and help on the front end tomorrow. Hopefully I didn't do anything retarded and have to redo it.

I'm loving this build thread. You've definitely got all the right ideas. Really love your wheel choice.
