    Got a shot in the back and came home bulletproof. Lol Got about half the quarter removed but starting to feel something. Decided to quit early. I didn't think they used lead in 85 but it had it. Had to melt it out on the upper C pillar

    This is why I'm glad to be changing the quarter panel. It will have good bones when I'm done

    I know what you mean about that restlessness. When I get that idea in my brain that something needs to be done on the car, in the house, etc, I cannot sit because that voice gnaws at me that stuff has to be fixed. Worse is when parts come in and God forbid they sit in the box! In the long run, no matter how tired the jobs make me, that feeling I accomplished something takes care of the ills.

    Good luck and looking forward to updates.

    Had a frustrating day yesterday trying to weld on the quarter. My Lincoln 140 gas mig has been having a wire speed issue for about a year. Every time I put on a new small spool of wire, I change the tip. I've cleaned the rollers and adjusted tension. I'm wondering if I need to replace the sheath. Instead of dicking with it, I think it's time to retire it and step up to the 180. It's at my local Lowes for around $680. This will be a 220 volt machine too. That's about max I could afford to spend right now so if it will last me 4-5 years, I'm good with it

    I know there was lead in my 87 Cutlass when we did the roof skin swap.
