Thanks to all who have offered kind words, they are greatly appreciated!

I got a couple of updates on a few fronts. First off the most important one the wife. We met with the Onoclogist last week and he said she looks good. The mass has gone from 7cmX11cmx9cm to 2.5cmx3cm and there is nothing that says what is left is not scar tissue. Radiation starts in about a week to kill off what might be left. With further checkup's in the future she should live a long and health life. Thank God.

Okay onto the Bronco. Its been baby steps since may and will probably go back to that in november during radiation. I switched out the windows in the tailgate. Took the 96 glass out and put the 79 in. The newer model window motors are so much stronger than the original. I also got the cargo area carpet out "what a mess". The insulation under the carpet was toast. Used the shop vac on the entire truck and will probably go over it again. I seriously believe I sucked up 45 lbs. of rust/sand/insulation. After I build my sliders for the War Horse and Shamrock oh and I forgot about the motor and drivetrain swap I gotta do on #4(no name yet) I'll order some new floor pans and start the patching. Here is the rust/sand/insulation I vaccumed out

lmctruck.com is your friend. i think you can order almost all the metal for one of these trucks minus a few support bits. here or there. but what you can't buy you can always make.

Been at a stand still for too long. I need those and quite a bit more. My plan is to cut it out and start piecing it back together on the inside.
