"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the wine I drink I feel shame Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the vineyards and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this wine, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this wine and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

Well where the body mount is at the front it is 1/8 inch plate the rest is 14 gauge[36]I don't want to be fixing any more rust for a long time. When I do the drivers side I will post pics of before after and during.[cheers]This is actually easy to do! I was expecting it to be alot more work.

The 1/8 plate was form my millrite buddy and the rest was from alder metal ? I think it is called. And the price varies depending on who is working one time it was $26 for a 20x22 inch piece and the next time it was $5 for a 19x19 and a 3x18 and a 3x3 piece I think that is because it was from the Scrap bin.
