Yeah it's on jackstands. Bleeding the brakes is a PITA.
Just finishing off. Interior will be this winter.[ATTACH] [ATTACH]
I just did a stretch of Route 66. Don't bother with the Cadillac ranch. Boring as hell.
You have to make a stop in Winslow Arizona and check out...
LS2, 400 hp
Thanks Gents. I will give it a go tonight
I'd attach pictures if my phone was working properly.

I'm working on my 32 3 w coupe.
I installed the pitman arm on the Vega box. When I turn the steering wheel to the left, it barely turns the...
i say leave it just as it is. Super dependable and looks perfect.
great movie. I like how Kevin Costner's wife showed him her new "Henry Ford's 1934 "
I interviewed him for a Canadian magazine that is now defunct. He lived near Chatham Ontario. Very nice guy who never truly got the recognition...
I just bought a BeBop 32 3w coupe. I know they make roadsters too. They are very high quality and the gel coat polishes up nicely. They are...
I am partial to any '36 and especially to the GNRS winner. The only thing I would change is the skinny back tires. It just doesn't look right.
The '36 hands-down winner. But I'm partial to 36's

I finally installed the hood on my 1940 Ford pickup. I'm surprised how well it fits.
The problem I am having now is the latch. It's not opening...
I'm dealing with the exact same set-up in my '40 pickup. I bled the brakes 4 times and the pedal still seemed to go almost to the floor.
I've never liked the tail dragger look on '35's and 36's. You've nailed the hot rod look!
It's called Ford blue
Please, no more gassers. Make it driveable for long trips
Full by the dipstick hatch marks. Not sure where it's leaking from. It finds a path somehow. I have a catch pan under it.
This week, I will get it...
I drove my '40 pickup for the first time today after a 4 year build. I drove it out of the driveway down the road and made a U turn to come back....
