    Been out of town all week, heading home today. Tomorrow is family stuff. Monday night I'll get back to work on my brakes. Got one more line to bend and flare, then it's time to assemble and bleed.

    Bolt the heads on. Check PTV mesure for push rods. Finish wiring kill switch. Maybe if time don't run short pull out the pumpkin and put in the new one with spool and gears.

    New 185 thermostat & temp sending unit and hopefully a car that runs at temp and a gauge that's accurate. Maybe make the master cylinder heat shield.

  11. That is some nice looking frame fabrication work! I love it when fabrication becomes art . . . and form is as important as function. I do this same shit - knowing that almost nobody but me will ever see it or know it is there . . . but you do it to make yourself happy! AND, the hardest person for me to make happy . . . is ME. LOL

    Finish the new seat install and seatbelts in my '55 first series Chevy 1/2 ton with my son. Pulling out the early '80's Monte seat and putting in a '98-'05 Astro/Safari third row LEATHER option seat. Been looking for one of those seats for two years. Finally scored one a few weeks ago. Started the fab work last weekend. Hopefully complete it this weekend. Will make the truck much more pleasant to drive...and we drive it long distances. Quite the pain in the ass right now.

  14. Going to clean up the Ford a bit, wash down the engine bay, wash & vacuum and clean all the glass. Maybe install the new electric fan kit. Unless the weather is bitchin'... then I may just cruise around.

    Thanks man that is a great compliment. You are spot on form always follows function and no one ever see’s it. I just can’t stand sub-par work. It was tedious hand filing and fitting every weld joint and a lot of mock-up. Safety is paramount and I had to come up with something rigid enough to keep from twisting the body which is a noodle when it’s time to put some power to it.

    A couple more pic’s showing the old crap sub-rails getting cut out and the start of some new metal going in. The wheel well’s have to come out too as they are too far apart for the steadfast sections going in. Stock subrails were cut right behind the door posts so I had to cut up some new (and expensive) half rails.

    image.jpeg After its strip and repaint for the last 6 months I took my 56 Victoria to a hot rod gathering in Tustin about 10 miles from where I live Sunday morning. On the way home south on the 55 freeway then north on the 405 I usually open it up to hear the dual quads sing. I was not disappointed as I merged going north up the 405 opening up from 60 to 90. It's about the only time I get to do this and I hate to disappoint myself. Need to clean it out every so often and flow some fuel thru those 2 sets of back barrels.
     
  25. Removed the seat in the mordor and re-positioned the track 6" further back,now I can drive it comfortably & ladyhrp can move it as far forward as she needs it.

  28. Lousy weather so spending time in the garage. Found reason for a couple of burnt wires on the Coleman Coupe. Just lose connection causing wire to overheat when lights on. Also organizing trunks in both 32's. Tools etc.

    We had a wiring problem with our septic pump chamber. Worlds Best Son in Law got in there and fixed it yesterday. New pump was a major hit to the car fund. Bob
