Hi all,

After reading off and on for several months and finally getting caught up on some major projects...I guess its time to check off one of the "Bucket List" items!!!

Ok...Here goes.
Please feel free to offer up comments, suggestions and hopefully a lot of help on specialty parts.

Week One...
Drove to Dayton Ohio to pick up a Doug Hines special!!! 22 hours round trip(ugly). Doug could not have been any nicer. Answered the phone every time I called( I wished everyone would), gave a completion date...and came in 6 days early!!! I have not seen another "Kit" to compare to, however I can't imagine using anyone else. Very strong - very straight. I believe when it comes time - less than one week on the body and it will be ready to paint.
Also this week - Picked up a late model stock car chassis with a Winters quick change rear end. Thanks to ebay for a WWII throttle quartet for a shifter and thanks to craigslist for a new set of prostreet Micky Thompsons.
Tell me how to get the pictures uploaded and they will be on the way.
I guess its time to start cutting...

There are several tutorials through out this site. click on the square with the mountains and sun .          IFCode then that should take you to your pics on your computer then click on the image you want and it should post your image.Stick with Rustys build and you really cant go wrong. I am tickled you got one of Dougs bodies you saved your self a ton of work.

Howdy all...
I guess I'm just stupid...
When I click on the mountain/sun...it opens a window that says" Enter the full absolute URL to the image to insert."
I would have thought it would direct me back to my computer to pick pictures...that's not the case. Let me know what you guys think.
