The Jalopy Journal
It’s been a minute, but I’m assuming the membership card I just picked up came from you. Did you ever find more history on the club?
Yes, I am...
They’re from Classic Instruments
Our cat Alex needs some help getting on the bed these days, so I tried my hand at building some Mid Century Modern style steps for him.
Upon first seeing the way this car was finished out, I might have wanted one of these bags to spit up in a little. But after a few days I would...
No chop class??
nice score. Those look pretty good with a mild dechrome, lowered a lot, and skirts.
Alright, just one thing. If the headlights were about 3” higher….
Since ‘64’s seem to be making the cut…here’s my side project that’s on hold until the Roadster is done.
Yeah….I looked at thing for too long and everything is just a little off.
That first one with the broken frame looks kinda baby shit-ish
Man there is a lot of weird shit going on this year regarding personal choices on cars, particularly paint related. But the whole car is their...
Radir makes them in 29-1/4” and 32”…

Son of a gun!
Killer. It’s been great watching the trans go together, I learned a lot. The nut plate on the steering box is pretty damn smart!
Finally got the shocks done. Made a little fixture to aid in drilling through the boxing plates in the same spot as the rails. After I trimmed the...
If you want the leftovers it’s yours, it is cable drive
I thought I’d need to make a special tool, but a small flat blade screwdriver, then a bigger one works fine to peel back the crimped edge.
Tonight’s fartin-around project. Found an older non-auto gauge of the same diameter as my new speedo with a better looking bezel. It was $30-ish...
