not much new one the car, its still at the body shop

 

the shop i took it to, its taking so long because they normally work on a lot of smaller jobs for many of the local dealers around town and they do body work and paint for custom air planes

 

but ive been going down twice a week to check it out and they are working it over really nice

 

im waiting on posting any pictures till its all the way done painted

 

but since the mini has been gone, I started to work on my truck

 

its a 1937 chevy 3/4 ton, its getting a 5.3 liter v8, a 4l80e 4 speed automatic trans, and a 50 inch wide ford 9 inch rear axle, 4.11 lsd in the axle, air ride, 2 inch drop spindles, mmw flat plate upper arms, ss-7 bags, engine driven air compressor, avs 4 link, 2x3 frame rails, z06 vette 6 piston calipers and 14 inch rotors in the front, 31gallon fuel tank, fitech ecm and wiring harness, coffin muffler exhaust, 8 qt engine oil pan, alloy radiator

I got myself a bead roller a few weeks ago because I wanted to build some alloy door cards for this mini

 

no idea how to use it, but I figure the only way to get a handle on this new tool is to put some lines into some sheet metal and see what happens
