So with all the rain for days we were having, I started messing with my seats. I have original bench seats. Actually front bench is from a 56 because it still had its covering. I had blasted seat frames and painted black. I had bought the front seat moulded foam kit, repop spring packs for the backs of the front seat, and a Ciadella custom set of seat covers. Spring packs too thick and very hard to compress. It acted like it was going to split the seams in the cover. I have spent about 5 hours bending the springs to get them thinner. Decided the $300 spring packs will be in my garbage can for Tuesday pick up. I'm going to build foam inserts. I have several upholstery books here that I've used for years. Going with first layer 2" high density, second 2" layer medium density, and a final 1/2" sew foam over that. Should be way more comfortable and easier to work with

So I ended up working this whole week at a collision shop. A guy I used to work with opened his own place a couple years ago. His employee quit (no call no show) and he needed help. Hated to miss a week of working on my 55 but needed the money. I may keep it as a part time only. I'll talk to him next Monday. This way I can still have days for other customers in my mobile repair business. I'll be hitting my garage heavy tomorrow and Sunday

Hey gang, if you have signed up on youtube, please subscribe. I'd love to get a little income from ads but have to have 1000 subscribers and 4000 watch hours before eligible for ad cents. If I had this revenue coming in, I'd drag in more projects to build for the channel. I started my channel in 2017 and still under 500 subscribers. So please like, subscribe, and share. I plan on getting a good camera and editing software when I get some extra cash. I have a 4 door 55 found thats been sitting since 1990s in a shop at a very reasonable price. I know it's not a bunch of money from ads but anything would help. Very thankful to have the subscribers I have now
