haha....yeah man....get those diapers ready! Not only that,
but strap on a full on gas mask when changing. It's like nothing
you've ever witnessed. I'm long passed that stuff with my daughter,
but I will never forget the smell Shocked

Anyway, congrats in advance Ken. You'll make a great father,
and we all know that when your kid is 16, they'll most likely have the coolest car on the block Laughing

The chassis is about 95% done now, all the way to the inner rockers. I'm trying to decide if there is an advantage to putting the floors in now or after the body is back on.

All of the guide tubes are changed now, thanks to some help from Keith (riffraff)! That was a major pain, but I think it will be worth it when it comes to re-assembly time. Thanks for your help, I would not have been able to do that job alone. That took longer than taking the body off the chassis.

Just the rear tophat, a couple little touch ups, and she's good to go for Friday.

I ended up cutting the originals out and using them. The top hats that Klassicfab makes now, include them.
