Every now and then it comes to my mind that despite of hours spent in the shop nothing gets finished or done. Day after day you keep going to the shop until you cannot see the progress you've made with the project. So that's when you need to go back to your computer and take a look at the pictures to remind you that things actually have gone further. Here are a couple of miscellaneous shots of the past month.

So a lot has been accomplished but some more time will have to be spent with the sheet metal. I already had thought that I wouldn't be needing the welding machine any more with this project. The gap between the driver door and fender cannot be adjusted so most likely I'll have to level the gap by welding more stuff on the edge of the door. As can seen in the below picture the contours of the door do not meet the shape of the rear edge of the fender.

You just have to accept that this kind of setbacks sometimes occur. I am still aiming for having the body parts fit before the end of the year.
