More progress!!

Jill's "little" brother Nate and his family came up to the house this afternoon to help me with the Sled project and to have a little BBQ and bonfire. We got a lot done. Amazing how much faster it goes with an extra set of hands. (Thanks Nate)

We worked on the door tops some more. Even got some in-actions shots thanks to Jill.

"Little" Brother Nate taking some paint off the roof...

Doing some more cutting and paint removal...

Nate asked me about the original doors and stuff and so I grabbed the cut-off door top to show him and realized this makes a great shot to show just how much I changed the roof and windshield frame...

Got the inside pieces of the LH doortop tacked in...

Including the taper to the rear of the window opening...

Nate did a bunch of paint striping for me along with some great help on the fabrication stuff...

We also managed to get the RH side piece cut and shaped. Little more tweaking and they can get welded in.
