  1. Just came in for a carrot break.:confused: Tough to lose weight! :rolleyes:
    While my axle is out being dropped I got some parts painted , worked on shock brackets and started chopping NO NO:oops: my license plate bracket to fit my CT 32 plate. IMG_7627.JPG IMG_7628.JPG IMG_7630.JPG IMG_7629.JPG IMG_7632.JPG IMG_7633.JPG

    Shame on you, cutting up good original 32 parts. You should know better!

  3. It was not the one on the car. It’s a reproduction. Not that it matters. I would still like to chop the top on this sucker.

  4. Changed the amp gauge to a volt gauge today. Prepped the chopped license plate bracket for paint. This is why I am cutting the bracket down! IMG_7638.JPG

    CT, Love the original look of your dash. I did something similar but mounted my gauges from behind.

    Terry,
    The holes were machined out to the fit the inner ring of the gauge bezels. The SW gauges were then inserted from behind with only half the bezel showing. I then made a thin aluminum framework to hold them in place.

  10. Got some front end stuff finished and ready for install. Sanded my roadster steering wheel for a color change. That was it for today. Oh had a doctor appointment for my finger. He said coming along nicely but wanted to know about the primer on my finger.:oops: Back in the garage tomorrow. IMG_7644.JPG IMG_7642.JPG IMG_7641.JPG
     
  11. A few more things done today. Doctor told me not to get the finger dirty!:rolleyes: IMG_7647.JPG IMG_7645.JPG
    Tie rod painted! IMG_7646.JPG Roadster windshield sanded.

  15. Being Sunday I did not spend much time out in the garage. Got my chopped license plate bracket installed on the coupe. You know what they say! It's the little things. Just waiting for the dropped axle.

    Your doctor will be happy knowing you won't smash that finger again dusting the cars.

    I am curious to know what the king pin to king pin measurement ended up being on your newly dropped axle? Thanks

  27. Not much going on until the axle and wishbone get painted. Straightening some hardware out. That's it! Axle is about 48" IMG_7669.JPG IMG_7667.JPG
