    Hi and thanks for adding me to the forum. Looks like I’m working on one of the newer cars. Only 37 years old. The car not me. I’m NOS.
    I’ll load some pics when I can figure it out.

    Thanks Kevin,
    It’s an 81 with a 79 header on it. Been doing a two step dance with it for the last four years. One step forward two steps back. This is my first attempt at body work. It’s shows like yours that have helped with info I can trust. I also have to thank you and Mike. I’ve been catching up on your podcast and it’s nice to know some times life just gets in the way and projections take awhile.

    Thanks Tom,

    Glad we can be of some assistance! It’s often a two-step… or three, or four… like you mention. Just try to stay focused when you can work on it and you’ll get there. And thanks for listening to V8 Radio, too! I’ll tell Mike you said hello!

    Hey Tom! I like your El Camino. You and I are kindred spirits in how long our projects are taking. What are your plans for it? Thanks for listening to V8 Radio! Tell your friends!

    Hi Mike,
    I was telling Kevin how much I enjoy the Pod cast. After watching these reality tv shows it’s nice to know the true reality of a restoration.
    We’re also kindred in that we are both Air Force vets. AGE mechanic here.
    I bought it as a daily driver but the the paint was peeling off the original paint job so…well 4 years later and I’m hoping to have the paint on it this year. You know how it is in the Midwest. The bodywork window for a home shop is very small.
    How’s the GTO coming along?

    Well aim high! I knew there was something I liked about you! I was an airborne radar tech on the awacs. It was a pretty cool gig. I saw you AGE guys on the flight line from time to time. Kevin’s Dad was in the Air Force, too.

    As far as the GTO is concerned, it’s coming along. Slowly. You know how it is. Time and money. Both in short supply.

    Hey Tom,

    fellow elky owner here B)

    just came across your thread, hope your ride is still coming along. There’s nothin’ like owning an old school car that you can work on. Looking forward to any updates 😛
