    Please tell me you have been welding like a madman and haven't lifted the helmet to post anything.
    The HAMB is becoming tedious and boring, there are only about three builds worth following and the rest has turned into streetrods and old guys worrying about prices.

    Well Matt I’ve taken a couple days to come up with how to reply. I got nothin, certainly not poetic, that would make anyone believe that I’ve been honoring any sort of code that would validate the responsibility to keep the H.A.M.B. and it’s hosting as sacrosanct?
    I’ve been lurking, liking, and looking along for legit inspiring light. I’m lamenting my lakes-sedan’s lasting impression and loathe the losses I’ve laid down to legions listening. I’d love to liberate her from limbo. Likely it lends to being lambasted for lameness?

    “As my ol’ man you to say before he left this shitty world” you can’t take it with. I hope this doesn’t come across as self righteous. I don’t give a poop emoji about how much my thirty two four is worth. Truth be told I also don’t care how much it costs. I have a vision and the only thing holding that back now is life and limitations in respect to cash loads or loans. That and maybe lots of laziness or lack of libations.
    Really longing for the L words Latey

    I fiddled with the seats and grill yesterday a little bit didn’t do any fab.
    I can’t believe it’s been over two years since worked on these pieces or finished the dash.

    So much to finish and redo.
    Maybe Ted will let me join the Slackers? Na, their title is not very accurate.

    Well I do know where there is a nice 371. The truck it is in might go for scrap. And if nobody notices the blower may just fall off.
    Can't help on the copper though.

    Get cracking. Starting to smell like macrame again lol!

    Moving things around in the whole entire garage including a door. It’s all a huge mess now. Hopefully as soon as it’s all cleaned up and organized I can get on the body. It’s been more than long enough I suppose. Gramps is basically completely blind now. There is some sadness in my head about how long I’ve taken knowing this.

    Hey Mark. That is not your original drawing. It’s a color copy that I scribbled on. Yours hangs in my sons room.

    Though I have no clue what my pulley/belt future holds I have lots of concerns for cooling the “Lakes” Tudor. The supercharger is going to add to the dilemma of course. I also have to invent a good placement for the generator. I really don’t want it over a head but also don’t want to sacrifice its old chrome lure.
    I have one fan assembly but have been set on a chrome fan in my mind from way back. I finally have a used chrome fan coming that was 25 bucks. I am afraid it won’t be period enough. For it has six stainless flex blades on a steel center. It possibly won’t be of any use but I think it could be my best cooling option at 16” if I make a shroud.

    I don’t t know when flex fans came along. Some of you must though. I need my critics to chime in here.

    Put a shroud around it and if you run a hood make sure you have lots of room around the blower for air to escape.

    If the fan is too ugly keep looking for something to replace it with later...

    Like reverse the cowl vent lid, make a duct work through the firewall to let the blower heat escape. Then crack the windshield open and all the heat could come into the cockpit? Lol

LOL, we need something good to hold on too! Get too welding, mig wire and welding gas are cheap!!

    Like get the hood louvered with the louvers on backwards to suck air in and blow the heat out the bottom of the engine compartment.

    Well... I work a hell-a-lots better with a deadline. Especially if it’s one that I want. Sorry to disappoint but four months has not proven itself to be a sizable enough space in time for me to preform miracles. Sixteen months on the other hand would be more true to life. If I could magically find “away” not A way, to work on the car after the family went to sleep and weekends some, like typical households, maybe. The funds for the engine is still a huge hill to climb(pun). I’d prefer to navigate that cool one.

    Fan... I think it can at least fake it till something better falls on me.

    1: that fan should work fine. What you’ll be able to see looks good and it’s replaceable down the line if you want. All this “everything perfect before the first time it rolls out of the garage isn’t very realistic or traditional and keeps a lot of guys from going out and having fun

    2: the hill climb and the days and events surrounding it will be 200% worth the effort. It is unlike anything I’ve ever ever seen in real life. 2021 might be our return to the mountains as well!

    If you could see the Horrible paint job on my hemi valve covers you wouldn't worry about a chrome fan......

    A deadline to finish the whole project is not reasonable either.

    I have found setting deadlines for critical tasks in life/projects works far better. And, in a short amount of time you have a lot of progress.

    In saying that, I will be honest, I apply this to a lot of life except one back burner OT project that happens to occupy most of my shop. I make more excuses about why I don't get it done.

    Yup small bites you can chew up and swallow, rather than choke on the whole thing.
