Well I've been up for 37 hours, spent about 22 at the shop working on the limo roof getting the sunroof situated right, had to make a support brace for it, ground down most of the old bondo, welded up all the seams 98% and used long stran fiberglass bondo over all the welds, now need to buzz down the high spots and go over it all again with short stran bondoglass


First pic is the Bondi dust left from grinding it all down, second pic is all the seams I had to weld up (dark lines), hopeful it won't crack anymore

I'm living vicariously through you right now Spike.  I've spent the last three hours tending to a three year old's running nose.

Did you put hydros on that limo?

That flat out looks classy - like it should have been from the factory.  Another perk of running 13" wheels?  The continental kit is actually functional, lol!

The car is running 13s, but the conti kit had a 14" hubcap so its now got a 14" wheel. Not exactly functional, just looks better lol. It was real hard to cut up a perfectly good wheel

What do you do when you have a 25' limo but a 22' garage? You build a 8' addition onto the front...dunno why I didn't think of this 3yrs ago when I bought the house
