    Cleaned my gutters, mowed the lawn, cut alders ( until my chainsaw crapped out...I hate working on small engines). Thinking about taking the 48 for a ride , but it looks like thunder boomers moving in. Its been a nice day here and I was hoping the weather would hold off for the local stock car races tonight but its not looking too good for that.

    I was outside between the rain bands, trying to modify hinges on the 26 T. It was going good, so I managed to hand crank it to run, to get it indoors.

    Then I had to put a temp gas can and batt in the Diamond T 10 wheeler in the shop to move it ahead enough to get the T in behind it.

    In a rush, and me trying to get used to the 4 pedals & Model T transmission, must have been funny to watch...I was backing it in and it kept slamming the wood tailgate into the rear frame rail of the Diamond T. I was pushing two pedals by mistake :)

    I am putting 26 Dodge sedan rear doors on the T to make a pickup. It was a cutdown 2dr sedan body. The Dodge doors are going to fit sweet. I'll take a vertical slice of the Dodge front doors to make an extended cab with narrow quarter windows. It will look similar to a 28 Model A cab.

    I'm off to the basement to put things on milk crates just incase the water comes in. Who knows I may get lucky and find my misplaced MOON tank.

    What? :eek: no gas pedal?

    I just got it 2 days ago and did not look for a gas pedal yet:D

    My buddy that I got if from has the column-to-dash bracket off, and the motor races like crazy if you don't push the column up high. I was too busy with all these quirks to look for a gas pedal :eek:

    Cleaned gutters, secured the exterior of the house, no loose items in the yard, fired up the generator (1942 military unit with a flathead Jeep engine), plenty of gas, bring it on.

    Got prepared here in So. Jersey yesterday. Just me and the dogs. Wife & kids are in Cape Cod visiting family. Got the generator ready, lots of food, water & wine. Going to drink my way through this thing. LOL!!!!
     
  15. Power out, but the generator is going. Wind is howling. 250,000 people without power here in Richmond. But I just poured a bourbon (on the rocks, please, no water). Hurricane or not, it's the cocktail hour, such as it is. And the internet is working for the time being.

    Hunkering down, my friends, hunkering down....
     
  16. put a set of '32 repo bumpers on the A roadster, also fixed front fender braces, installed license plate frame, step plates and touched up some paint for the new owner:) in my opinion the car looked better without all that crap but it's his now!
     
  17. Fixed my daughters toilet, strapped the lean-to to the Kubota, visted tb33anda3rd and saw his lean-to chained to a Buick:cool:
     
  18. '68 with a 455 should hold it down but if anyone sees a car port with a black 4dr hanging from it, it's mine. :eek::D

    Phartman must be catching. It's 11.14pm here, still in the garage and just finished off my shifter. Tall glass, some Jim Beam, 2 blobs of ice and time to kick back and look at the mess i've made. Cheers fella, enjoy and look after yourself and yours!!

    I can still lift a 327 small block and place it on a milk crate to keep it above the basement flood level, 8 foot slider will speed any waters exit. What do those blocks weight?

    Welded the boxing plates all around on the chassis, replaced the center section of the x-member with one I bought from a member here on the HAMB. Cleaned up, then tied up all the outdoor furniture, and got the generator ready for action. I'm pooped now.
