    Very nicely done! That kind of work takes quite a bit of patience and putting up with plenty of glue fumes.

    Excellent stuff, thanks for putting it up! The photos are great.
    I don't need to replace my headlining but I do need to remove the sagging at the back with a flat piece of aluminium, this is a good heads-up as to what's involved.

    I've never seen Clint drink OR bleed. Just adds to his mystique. Some folks say he was 11 feet tall. I once saw him catch a 20 foot marlin with his bare hands. In a swimming pool! I've heard rumors he carved a pet ox out of solid SS304 but have never seen it personally.
