Long weekend. Get anything done??

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Tugmaster, Nov 28, 2010.

  1. I got luckey and got a 4 day weekend. Despite getting called in twice for a couple of quick tug jobs it was a nice breather for me. I did sneek out at 6am Friday and picked up a drill press and new welding helmet at Tractor Supply.
    Since I traded my 50 sedan for the Hussey I've been wanting to do a few things that I though she could use.
    The car has no speedo or tach. I wanted a rough idea of what my speed was. I do alot of local driving and don't want to get pinched for speeding. I picked up a Mooneyes short sweep tach from The Hotrod Company. It fits the car pretty well I think.
    Next thing I wanted was a mirror. I looked at what alot of people were running on their T's and I saw alot of the ones that clamp on the windshield posts. I think they are real fugly. I did some looking around and saw that they actually made one for the Model A that used on of the holes for the windshield mounts. I figured if you cann do it on an A you can do it on a T. So I ordered a short stem 4' round mirror from J&P Cycles for a whopping $11. I pulled the stock bolt and used a stainless finish washer where it mounts. It looks like it belongs.
    What did you get done this weekend?

    I'm trying not too hahaha!!! I am looking for someone to come down here haha!!! I was just in Buffalo and the 11 hour drive each way sucks so I'm in no rush to do it again. I might be going to Philly though in February so I might head into BRONX and pick some of my stuff up from Zombie Hot Rod.

    I tweaked my back at work Tuesday, so my four day weekend was pretty slowed down by that. I also had to do a quick repair on one strand of our outdoor lights, as well as getting out and putting up the indoor decorations.

    All I got done on the car was to press in the new front bearing races, and got the drums turned and painted. I really wanted the car back on the ground and the brakes bled out. Maybe next weekend.

    Rebuilt my passenger side window and vent window, all new weather seals and felt, installed the freshened up window regulator, freshly painted door panel, inside door handles and buttoned it all up. Then put about 200 miles on her. A great weekend!

    Not car stuff, but metal work. Finished building a sissybar for my FXR and got it ready to go to the platers.
