    I need to know, how do you get so many pictures up when you are limited to your profile? Are you using a web host and bringing them in from there?

    Actually I use another site. I'll have to try this later today to see how it works, found some instructions here.

    yea I link them from photobucket so it doesnt limit me or put strain on the server...and it automatically copies the link when you click it, just paste in the box and go

    I see that... Well I tried the site I usually use, no dice. So it looks like I'm going to get set up with photobucket. Thanks for the tip. How's the box coming along?

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    well its mardi gras and we have had a ton of cold to me weather and rain so with no carport or garage I basically been letting that fiberglass dry, I think the hardener is going bad so since i cant work on it im letting it dry itself, most is dry. when I can get in there maybe tomorrow provided no rain ill lay a lil more resin down but with extra hardener and it should harden every thing up...then I can attempt to get the box out, if it comes out.

    other than that I been partying my ass off...

    balcony on bourban street for mardi gras compliments of harrahs casino, open bar and buffet. im still hurting since wednesday. one more day and im relaxing and its not even fat tuesday yet

    not car related but what ive been doing





    and yes, I did find Osama Bin Laden

    I have a friend who disappeared out that way a few years back and begs me every year to come visit for Mardi Gras.

    Being the Voodoo capital of the country, it may well be worth a trip one day.

    youll love the food when you get here and there are so many places you'll have to come back...theres something for everyone here too, just depends on what you like


    jumped on the box a few minutes ago. extra hardener seemed to do the trick cuz as soon as I started doing the inside box with a second coat and few pieces of fiberglass cloth around the edges. I got some resin on my forearm and well the whole time breathing fumes inside the box, My arm was burning...also some areas are already tacky which means I done something right


    few strips cut and ready


    top part, resin on all the MDF, seal it up air tight, ill do this to the main box to when I can get it out

    Yep. Never been there for Mardi Gras, but I visited once and I was hooked. I go back any chance I get, which hasn't been as often as I'd like. I'm dating myself, but I was there before the ship crashed into the mall, after the ship crashed into the mall, before Katrina, after Katrina....I need to get back soon

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    alright **PROGRESS**

    since im off from work for fat tuesday and im burnt out and tired from mardi gras, its a nice day out and work has already gotten done.

    I could see resin under the hardened glass that wasnt dry, got a dead blow hammer and tried knocking the box out from the front, didnt work. so I pulled the rear seat and hit from the back while my brother pulled the front...didnt work, got to the pint I was forcing air under the box to lift the fiberglass of the wet resin, hitting it at the same time...didnt work. started seeing some cracks in on the front baffle where it meets the sides. so I stopped then let the redneck out.

    yes Strapped the box all the way around, and ratchet strapped it out with a lil help from the neighbors fence. came out pretty quick.

    so now I left the underside of the box in the sun for about an hour now and its drying nicely



    tape covered in wet resin, I balled it up and chunked it


    1 glassed bottom drying



    im going to resin a few spots on the top of the box and try to seal the inside on the main box up today

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    not super heavy just I built it to stay in one spot tight and when the fiberglass gripped the floor with a combination of wet yet sticky resin holding it down almost like a suction, it wasnt coming out easy.

    4 wheeler jack is my work bench of choice here. covered the sides and any gaps to seal it air tight, hopefully got everywhere

    more resin in a few areas on the top


    covered the inside
