Nice to see a little progress. I've been gone for a while and it looks like I didn't miss much; I picked a good time to drop in. You make it to the Turkey Run this past Nov?

Actually, I'm so close to finally getting back at it; yea, yea, we'll see.

My welder is all set up. I picked up a nice HF cabinet, and found, yes, how do you like that,....found an old cylinder in the back of the warehouse. It's filled and ready to go.

At the same time, I found some large metal cabinets that I redid. They actually came out nice.


When projects get in the way of projects

But sadly, no forward progress on the car since I sprayed the MS.
lol if it makes ya feel any better my 67 broke down and i had to work on it for 3 weeks to figure out the issue so it took me away from working on the 65

Yes, we made the Turkey Run. As usual, 6,000 + cars, this show is amazing!

No forward progress, always good to be remembered by friends. I finally got my welder all set up and started practicing beads last weekend, but apparently I have a bad machine. Not enough heat to burn anything but the wire into tall boogers that won't penetrate or even stick to think sheet metal.

Jeff,

Not related to VMF, but I tore my left rotator cuff recently, Again. At 52, and a 5 yr blue, I'm a small frame, but solid weight trained 200, but trying to hold off a 19 yr, 230 lb almost blue, state wrestler proved to much. He passed guard, shot side control and when I reached to block his knee I actually heard and felt it tear.

Waiting for an MRI, then surgery, so I'll be out for a good while from both gyms,.....getting old is tough.

There are age, weight and belt classifications for a reason,...lol.


I figure I can still weld until I heal up, we'll see.

Wife,........."You drove how far for that thing?"
Daughter,..."Theres no inside and it stinks."
Friend,......."Dude, thats a rusted piece of sheet."
Son,.........."This old car is cool."

Went through shoulder surgery in November after letting my 58 year old ego get the best of me arm wrestling 20 and 30 year old opponents. Physical therapist was amazed how fast I recovered. I think part of it was sticking to the painful exercises they recommended and part was continuing to grind and weld on the Mustang. Kept my shoulder physically active without straining it.

Dang your OLD!! lol That rough man, I have recently retired from active competition and dont really train anymore. I pretty much do my day job and come home and do some work on the cars or relax til the weekend.

Hopefully its your non dominant side, welding would be much easier that way...

Im 6ft,34, with a pretty wide frame and now 210lbs...So i may have let myself go a little considering i fought at 170 lol

Hope you have a quick recovery and do your PT stubborn ***
It helps alot and i made a rather quick recover from ACL doing PT 3 times a week for 3 months.

Must be something about us old guys (57) 228lbs here. I tore my acl playing in a men's basketball league when I was 42. I have shoulder impingement in both shoulders. Getting back into the workout routine now trying to rehab the shoulders and drop about 25 more pounds.

I wish you luck with your upcoming surgery and recovery!

Must be contagious. I had frozen shoulder with impingement on my right arm last year. Went through about 3-4 months of PT and it was about 90% better. After stopping PT I got about to 99%. I think by the end the PT was irritating more than helping.
