when you get it to where you want it. Take some time off and then get back at it.

I agree, don't let this truck beat you. It's supposed to be a hobby. Get on to something else for a while and when you're ready, get back to the bodywork.

...I simply admire anyone that can do body work. Definitely not my cup of tea. I'm toooo impatient.


...good to see you check in Joe. Did you get your engine from Warner? When your back in my area some hot dogs are waiting.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

one way I keep motivated is to keep different parts at different stages of the process.

I get tired of sanding something, I go paint something already prepped, or go assemble something thats already been painted.

I also keep a few pictures of other restored stovebolts from this site in my barn, as motivation.
