ID:	3236 Well...The Henry J is coming back today so what better time to get this cab back from the Kristen @ Specialty Stripping in NH.

    Looks like it's going to get busy in this little shop. Good thing the kid I hired to help out isn't coming around. 🤣

    Thank goodness these guys happen to be patient and it's not their first rodeo. Luckily I only have to get this one metal worked and into epoxy. Guess it's more workin' less postin'.🤣

ID:	3241 Quick sticking of the roof shows I kind of have my work cut out for me. Luckily it doesn't have to be perfect.

ID:	3247 spent the early part of the day with Ospho cleaning the metal and getting the last of the rust out of the pits.
      Then spent a few hrs on the roof. I got about 1/3 of the roof done in about 3 hrs. Might be able to get away with just high build but I think a coat of spray poly might be needed.

ID:	3303 mostly there. Still a few spots at the back. All told probably around 15 hrs in the roof. I have to weld the corners where lead was applied from the factory and do a few other minor repairs but I should have the roof and cowl in prime Wednesday (tomorrow I work out of the shop).

            Finished the roof and cowl panel
            Welded and leaded the seam
            (Little low in a couple spots).
            Tomorrow lead the other side and prime the roof cowl inside and out on Sunday.

            Most of the day was spent on the Henry.
