LMAO! Soooo many movie lines there to be quoted there! Spark up the campfire and the beers!

I tend to be on the opposite end of that stick- a bit more spontaneous.

Ain't this fun what we do?! I compare it to snow skiing- regardless of the skill level, everyone is having a great time.

Yes....I'm having a ball! It does get frustrating at times but it does keep the brain in gear. I do the same when I hit a roadblock... move to something else and come back to it. It's funny how when you come back to it a lot of the time it works right out.

Spontaneous is a no go for me... that's usually when I make mistakes, cut it too short ect. Especially when it comes to women....oh boy, good thing the wife is not on here! LOL

No pictures to post yet....I'm on the passenger side headers and fitting each tube is taking me at least an evening, evening and a half a piece. I've also been practicing tig welding. Geezzee not easy especially on pipe. I'm pretty on flat sheet metal, better on 1/8. Pipe at a joint....not so good, not good at all. Arrg

So I gota keep practicing. My fit work on all the tubing is very tight and I don't want to ruin anything. I'm feeling like I can do a better job right now mig'n them but I'm gona keep at it.

Maybe some pictures after my garage time tonight.....

Keep at it. I can't get the hang of it. I need to practice, practice, practice a lot. I've been welding for about 40 years and I am still getting better at mig. I have a friend that worked at a ship yard and he makes me look like a beginner.
