I haven't posted in photos for a while so time to catch up a bit.
Much work, a bit of blood...….and a few new cuss words have been "discovered".

So let's go back in time a bit and hit some high spots......

Thanks,
Keith

Waaaaaaaay behind on posting photos. I'll try to catch up a bit the next few days.

It's been a heck of a project.
Lost about 15lbs and probably in the best shape I've been in in quite a while.
These things don't give up anything easily!!!!

Not quite like wrestling a small block Ford. ;)
