It does make me laugh , when someone says they are into rebuilding cars .

 

when you ask a bit further , it turns out they once changed an air filter & bulb (got a few like that at work)

 

I wish people who were buying projects (mid life crisis), would look at a job like this 

 

they would realise how much work & skill is involved

 

awesome job by the way

You're making great progress on the pickup. It's almost, like someone has mentioned, like a brand new build!!
