Mark, I enjoyed watching the videos and seeing the progress on the suburban too!
Good stuff, thanks for sharing!

No work for a little while. Next is valve seal, and two shows. But can't do any valve work since a homeless cat took refuge in my shop to receive medical treatment and care. When this small crisis concludes, work will continue! Which means, noisy compressor on!

Been lazy lately. I did remove the drivers hood hinge and elongate the holes a little. The hood now has nicer gaps and sits a little straighter, flatter. I like it!

Still being lazy. Have been slowly addressing where the new cowl panel meets the old cowl top. Been shaping to match the hood profile. I should probably do the same for cowl to door area, but I think it's close enough to not bug me. I had planned to do some paint, but I don't feel like affording it right now. Plus, I need to decide on a better paint area. Maybe on the side of the house where things are a little wider than in the garage. Line my Easy-ups with plastic or maybe get a temporary garage. I really need to get off my butt and seal the valve stems, at the very least.

Hadn't checked in lately, Mark, so it appears the "lazy" part has hit more than you. Glad to see your still chipping away though. Remember, at least 15 minutes a day will git r done! Now, if I could just take my own advice on the coupe!
Paint? I have my coupe lined up for work in about 3 more weeks. We'll see how it goes.........perhaps you could find a "painter" with access to a paint booth and do the spraying over a weekend? I'm just full of ideas for someone else taint I. hehehe

I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile
