    Well, got pipes on the car last weekend. Sounds so much better...

    And needed a back seat for the kid this weekend for a show in New Braunfuels. So built something easy.

    Gave it the Texican treatment.

    Good weekend show in the car... Had some fun putting some miles in the Texas Hill country with it. Were getting each other figured out. 18's are going to go to my buddies car and Im putting 16s on the rear I guess. The rubbing on the sedan is quite pronounced on it when a few are riding, so going to do some trading for some 750-16 wheels and tires and getting shocks out of the deal. Should still look good..

    Love the look, you did it justice. Keep after the brakes, I used a 2X4 with 3 1 inch steps cut in it. First step, all wheels just touch the shoes, 2nd notch rear shoes lock up, 3rd notch front wheels lock up. They will need some tuning but that worked best for me here in St Thomas, VI with it mountains. And I had a hot little banger, with a S10 4 speed, never gave thought to going to juice brakes. The 2X4 should back up to the seat frame and then make the notches to fit your under your brake peddle. Sounds antiquee, but works well. This was from an old Ford mechanic, you should have been there when he showed me how they set up the rear ends back in the day. I've done many of them since, and never had a noisy one. Even used mismatched ring and pinions. He also showed me how to set rod bearing the OLD way and it always worked. He was a wealth of good old time fixen, and now I'm his age of 82, so share the knowledge. Iceman

    Thanks man. Get to looking, the deals still can be found for sure. We ain't getting younger... haha

    I have a 1x2 with the notches in it... sitting right here close,. agree 100% good working Mech brakes will do just as good as juice if adjusted and properly maintained... Yeah The wealth of knowledge that those guys had was amazing, and its amazing how these guys did it without digital dial calipers etc, most of it by feel or watching one thing do something different etc.
