Had a great time meeting Jim and his wife,and it was a surprise, Vic and I just showed up.
We were so close, and I really wanted to meet Jim.
Long story short. Went to the address on his website, pulled into the entrance/driveway and stopped. I asked Vic if we should go ahead in. That Vicki, she is smart, she said "would you want someone to stop at are house" I never said a word, just drove in.

Scott, Jim has a beautiful place, hope you can make it there one day.

Yeah... couldn't stand it. I mean, it IS a 5 build, and I had a picture of a 7 with a beautiful woman! Go figure...

Scott the body looks to be lining up very good. The grill and fenders look a little too high to me but the tub itself looks to be right on the money so there's really now way to get the other stuff lower. Before you put the final screw down to it all I'd roll it outside and take pictures from the sides ar different angles. Post them on here too. I lost track of how many times I've seen things in my own pictures on the thread that I missed when I actually took the picture. I sure like the looks of it though!!!

I'm sure glad Bill and Vicki stopped. I'd have been disappointed if they'd have backed out and not came to the house. They almost caught me in my Sunday afternoon nap!! Wish they could have stayed longer though. One thing we can all be thankful for too is that we've got some real nice people on this forum and I for one am always glad to meet them.

Someday I may show up at your house. Have plenty of food on hand too.

Looking great man. I took the cat out of the tire and it still thumps. I may have to pay for this one. Clay must be all smiles. Hope you guys had a great weekend. BTW- No schools in FL are in the top 25, but both SC scools are....tee hee. Talk to you later, again, nice looking rig.

PS- my fenders and grill will require some tweaking during the re-assembly. I have a 3/4 inch gap between the hood and the pass. fender, and it is tight on the other side. I think the grill and fenders are whacked but the hood is good. I am not sweating it now, but when the time comes you will get the distress call. Later dude.

She's called "first dibs" on driving it when done! I'll get a pic then. No way was I going to wake her up last night. She sleeps with a gun!

I agree the fenders and hood seem high. But that's the only way to get the mating between the fenders and the hood. I hate that big gap at the grill mounting point. Hopefully it will be hidden when we add the winch.

I talked with Bill last night. He and his wife had a great time visiting with you and yours. Bill said your place is beautiful, your shop is awesome, your shooting bench was something to envy, and that you look sexy in bibbs!! With a pocket knife clipped in your chest pocket... growl!! You made his day! He also told me that he is pleased to learn that he isn't the shortest old fart anymore!?

Meh... we laid out this year to give the rest of the nation a chance!

Sorry the cat didn't solve it for you. Did you remember to get your MIL out of the trunk?? You're for sure gonna pay for that one!!

If the curvature of the hood is even to the curvature of the cowl, then it is probably the fenders. I've seen some threads where the fenders sag and create an uneven gap. I think that's pretty common. Unless you are building like Keith, or a couple other guys, I wouldn't worry too much about it. Nobody is ever going to notice it. But I can take measurements for you from my 7 when the time comes, if you like.

Looks like you are making some good progress.

On the hinges, can't you just weld the holes shut, grind it flat and re-drill them?
