I actually look forward to seeing it painted and the stainless parts all polished and shiney.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot all about something! Hey Guys, how does Rick look with one of the dorky looking welding caps that all welders wear. I had three that I kept in my tool box at work, so when I brought my two welding hoods I brought them with me. I gave him the choice between the one I ended up wearing during the project and the funny green color one he chose. The one I wore I kinda liked cuz it has motorcycles on it, and I might wear it to ride my bike sometime. They are all my size and Rick doesn't have large a head, all things in Texas are big, including my head. I must have unusual large imagination, hence Bob the big headed texan. Rick could just about pull it down over his ears.

If you don't have one these digital angle finder, get one!

Bob and I used it over and over checking brackets before he would weld them. The
one I bought seem to have good reviews on Amazon, but when I tried to clean the
metal shavings from the magnets with modeling clay it pulled one magnet out and I
still have not found it. Another magnet was partially out and tapped it with a piece
of metal and it cracked. It was about $25

It should be most helpful when making cuts and you need to be very accurate. You
can Zero it on the table saw table and move it to blade and measure the difference.

Next time I will be more gentle and maybe put some epoxy in the recess to make
sure it's permanent.

So I'm returning it to Amazon. One of their options it to use the credit to upgrade, so
I went with the Wixey 365. It has a display that can be adjusted so you can see it. I think
this will be very helpful so I don't have to stand on my head to see the display, sometimes
it can be in a peculiar place and angle for reading.

To answer Grumpy's question.....while waiting on parts for the 200-4R trans
I worked on the transmission mount that Bob fabricated for me and then
welded. I got the driveshaft loop drilled with 3/8" holes in 3/8" stainless,
now that did NOT go real fast!

This is what I started with before beginning to polish.

This is what I have now, about 33% finished polishing for this year. Besides
many people tell me it's under the car, no one is going to see it....Bull Shit!!!

taking the time to polish up and properly fit and finish parts few people will see, and parts they may not see, is the mark of a professional and, yes it can be taken to extremes.

but it reminds me of an old saying
"most people are HONEST when some ones looking , but an HONEST MANS still HONEST when NO ONE IS LOOKING"
IF YOU CAN,T SMOKE THE TIRES AT WILL,FROM A 60 MPH ROLLING START YOUR ENGINE NEEDS MORE WORK!!"!
IF YOU CAN , YOU NEED BETTER TIRES AND YOUR SUSPENSION NEEDS MORE WORK!!

Rick is a bit of a perfectionist.
Some would say Krazy like the rest of us here on Grumpy's forum posting
on a regular basis.
Looking Good Rick.

I don't think I can stand the pressure of living up to that one......so I need to lighten
things up abit. I couldn't decide between the two, so I will let the masses vote.

Although what you said Brian is TRUE ..... I just knew when I was reading that
you were going to say "Krazy like a FOX", then came the let down and depression.

But I REALLY do appreciate all the nice comments gentlemen!!! It's what makes
this forum special!!!
