    Boy howdy!
    That must have made one hell of a ruckus.
     
  6. Hey Tony, RoadsterJeff is pretty close to me if you're looking for another tow vehicle :D That '37 ute is kinda cool, but I'd be reworking that roofline.

    Weld the driver side front engine mount back together?? Hard to tell from the pics
     
  12. Just another day in the suck - as we used to say
    No we gave up on the Mickey Thompson plate. The Nicson is a lot thicker.
     
  13. Hmmmm with a one week delay, we might get the car back together in time ….

  16. Got the car back home and been thrashing on it. Windshield guy coming tomorrow . Joe did a killer job on the firewall and floors. Not sure what I’m going to do with all this duct tape now.

    Ram clutch sent a beefed up pressure plate that has some capture lugs on the plate

  17. Looking good Dog_Patch. I’d say it’s coming together nicely. And for those about to rock, we salute you.

    Since guys with blue vehicle avatars are replying to this thread, figured I'd better jump on board. :p

    That clutch and flywheel is beautiful! Can't wait to hear that Hemi eat again!

  21. Hope you make GREENSBORO.
     
  22. Thanks - I noticed in the pics the mid plate brackets need a but more weld on the ends .....

    Yeah we'll see. Trying something different this time - the bell housing is not within the .005" spec. BUT to fix that I need to press out the dowel pins in the plate. That dowel was the first thing to come out in the explosion. So gonna leave all of it alone and see if it shifts ok.

    Woooo me too!

    Yessir that's the plan!
     
  23. Adding a new brace to hold the block in place if something ever happens again

    Good to see you right back at it. A LOT of people would have thrown in the towel after that incident.

    Windows fixed and we glued down what’s left of the cowl vent

  28. No she didn't haha and some amount of bitching going on. The Dan tells me steel only grows .00108" doing this. But it makes me feel good so there's that.
     
  29. Two long days and it’s almost running. Felt like building a whole new car. Had to rewire it too.
    Fun times either way
