Note: ***I'll have pics when doors are done***

well this week is supposed to be better....the driverside hinge is supposed to come in this week....which is what we have been waiting on for a month now(company keeps sending wrong hinge). Shortly after the hinge comes in, both hinges will then be taken to the machine shop. At the machine shop, the hinges need to be modified with steel tubular spacers in order for the hinges to support the weight of the door(reason being the hinge oringinally had a hinge at the top and one at the bottom...im currently using the bottom which has a plastic spacer in result sux LOL) after the spacers have been welded on, they will also manufacture tool steel pin and bushings...which will beef up the hinge even more....this will take about a week assuming that the company who is sending the hinge...sends the right one on...lets see....our 4th try!!!!!!!! by the 28th the doors should be installed.......then they need to repaint it and throw on some ghost flames....the really nice thing is they(custom shop)feel really bad and continue to apologize even though its not their fault....so they are basically throwing in a paint job from back door to front all the way around to the back driverside door....How cool is that!?!?!?!? with ghost flames....after all that wishy wash, they then need to install the airride suspension.....this in theory, should take us to the 2nd week of feb....and we are still not done......the last project will be the audio setup.....but we have a long way before that.......im so glad prohibition doesnt exsist for alcohol......LOL
