Handy hint

I've had the doors on and off my car dozens of times. I put the hinge pins in loosely, by hand, each time, but they can be a little hard to pull out after. My solution gives me just a enough extra purchase on the pins so I don't have to go find a hammer (Edit - waiting for the comments on my personal hygiene... specifically my need to moisturize!)



I've also tried to protect the paint as I go along.

Rock and a hard place.

On one hand I must continue to read this thread for all the inspiration of work done at such a high level.

On the other hand I shouldn't read it at all because there is no way any build I do will ever live up to this. I guess I just have to accept that the non-shiny parts of my car will never actually be clean and nice. There is an underside for a reason, I tell myself.

Seriously beautiful work, and I completely agree with the choice of a galvanized later car to transform. Its enough hard work without also quilting together a car from a rustbucket. Great work!

The slope is not slippery; in fact it is entirely frictionless.

Thanks!! Not every build has to be so over the top - there is a lot to be said for leaving some things well enough alone and driving and enjoying the damn thing!

It has occurred to me that I'm spending a lot of time fixing things that weren't really broken in the first place
