Looks 100% better all ready! Love that vannin' spirit! Can't wait to see more. Thanks Ken! Maybe you might want to put a bubble in there so G-Man can stand and wave to all his adoring fans at Bakers!LOL

Ken had me stop by to see what he has done so far, new patch is in. Just has to finish it

He made some braces to help hold the panels weight

Hanged out with Ken today, was going to start leading the roof patch. Ken started the tinning process but the heat was warping the panel


We will have to Duraglass it instead, but didn't have any so we started working on other parts of the roof that need so help




Ken said he'll find another spot to give everyone a leading demo

Reading the contents on can, says it has a lead base. Dries firm and sands like bondo. When i put the fire to it, the panel was popping so i went this route as an alternative. It will work just as well.
