    WE used an old Bean trick on the stubborn ones. After grinding the head off is it was not moving with the munch and 2 pound hammer we drilled a hole through the center of the rivet. Then a few light taps and out they come.

    I have mentioned this before (like hundreds of time actually) and everyone blows it off. Too bad for them I guess.

    I’ve used that Ben trick a ton. I’ve had to drill out more than I haven’t. Can’t wait to see the buggy rolling around the neighborhood!

    Thanx, Ben. If I ever have to remove any again I'll try this.

    Well this car has always bugged me not being one solid color. And I didn't care much for all the stencil on white letters. So I had a little fun today and change the Wheel Color and made her one color. Oh I also taped on the 49s hubcaps just to see if I wanted some and I definitely do. :) received_1367331283407728.jpeg IMG_20181223_175044_629.jpeg

    Seems a whole different car every few months. Sat in it for the first time this afternoon and seems like everything lands where it feels natural. Now we just gotta get it running again

    Or stopping then running lol

    Red lead, I guess its red oxide these days always looks good on an old heap that is on its way to glory. ;)

    I remember when I was in high school there was a car around town that was always in red primer and the guy got to used to it that he just cleared over it. Looked good shiney too, kind of brown but looked good.

    I like the more brown side of the oxide reds if I were choosing that route, Boyd and/or his people undeniably had some good ideas like or not

    Boyd actually wasn't that bad a guy (I spent an afternoon wandering a big show with him), he just got caught up in the money game. Left to his own devices I believe that he leaned toward our style of car.

    Haha on the note of them leaning red or brown, both Beaner and Austin are color blind so I’m just gonna tell them it’s whichever color they like best lol

    @JRussell always has hot rods in red oxide primer and it’s stuck in my head as the best choice now lol

    I'd say you ended 2018 with a Bang Austin. It's really coming together. Hope your not lopping to much out of the top your near staring at visor already. Of course there is seat mods that can change that.

    Happy New Year to You and your Family.

    Sat in it for the first time a week or so ago and was surprised how well I could see. If it gets chopped the seats are getting chopped as well.

    Lots of neat ideas.

    In theory if the shoes are good enough to run you should be able to clearance the backing plate to clear the spring hanger and slide the new backing plate/hub/ drum right on and plumb it up!

    I want to say the hubs are part of the drum on those juice brakes which from the other photos I’ve seen are 40-48 ford
