    So you mention Canadian mice, or was that squirrels? Anyway, where is the car from?

  8. Over at cousin Ted’s today to cut shoes to fit drums. What a great machine. Ted’s expertise made the outcome perfect. IMG_5622.jpeg IMG_5623.jpeg

    A green hood and deck lid wouldn't look bad for the '24 season.

    Plow mounts get welded to the 5Window and the Roadster gets set up to run the ski rope tow, sounds like a plan!

  21. Got the hood hold downs finished after remounting the radiator. It was mounted too high with very thick rubber pads.
    Also welded up the cowl light holes and a couple of extra holes someone drilled into the frame. IMG_5656.jpeg IMG_5649.jpeg IMG_5650.jpeg IMG_5652.jpeg IMG_5655.jpeg IMG_5657.jpeg IMG_5658.jpeg

    Fenderless with a full hood, looks like a Dry Lakes Racer.

  24. Car had a lean rear right. After investigating, I removed the rear spring and found another bad bushing, also someone tightened the left side u-bolt nuts so tight they seized to the u-bolt and I had to cut them off. The right side was hardly tight. Someone trying to straighten it out by this method. The top five leafs were longer on the left side. Also center bolt was not straight. I’m sure that probably shifted over time. I will cut the leafs and get it all sorted and see what happens.
