Thanks BOZO, I think this one turned out nice, if I can gain the courage to sell it, I'm hoping to make a nice little profit on it.

Howzit going in Aussieland?  You and your fam doing okay?

Thanks, I've done extensive cleaning to the interior, it was so so dirty.  The bodywork along with new wheels and tires turned out to be a nice look.

My problem is getting attached to them after all the work that goes into these light restorations, I don't want to part with them when I'm finished!

True!  I know myself well enough to know I can't ever foster dogs, I'd never be able to let them go.

Actually, one of my dreams is to own enough land to have a dog sanctuary.  I can't stand to see them euthanized.
