    A lot of little things that take a lot of time jb. It it sure makes you aware of why you have to pay someone dearly if you can't do it yourself.

    Oh my. Now we want to bring up scratches. :-) You DON’T want to see some marks I have made since it was painted. Unintentional, but Mighty damage to a FEW spots(sad). They are NOT scratches. I will just need to send it back the body shop once I get it together. Case closed :-)

    That's why I like not having paint. Nothing to chip or scratch.

    Windows are a pain, no two ways about it.

    Glass and Paint - A bad combination

    Don't even start me about window seals and paint issues.

    After a year or so, my long-suffering wife and I got caught in a rainstorm on the way home from a show. The windshield leaked at the worst spot - right on her foot, so I took the '48 over to the glass shop to get the windshield reset.

    After four pieces of glass to get two panes set, when they pulled the paint tape off - the paint came with it! The harder they tried to fix it, the worse it got. This started a saga that ended up getting the truck repainted under the original painter's shop insurance. But - it sure looks good!

    Unbelievable Larry! A windshield leak turns into a repaint. Well it certainly looked good leading the show in Toledo!

    Nothing better than a winding gravel forest service roads through the mountains, or anywhere away from the rat race for that matter.

    I have that situation under control. I have a long gravel driveway, so I drive peeJ along side the drive on the nicely mowed lawn! Also keeping the dust off of the tires, Hahaha!
