    Well, almost done, but ran out of trim for the drink holders, and can't get till next week, so posting my oil pan console now..
    Have changed many things on it, but like the way it turned out..

    This is going in my 1963 Biscayne

    Started out with SBC oil pan.

    Tray is cut down valve covers upside down

    SBC valves hold the Harley pouch for my CCW

    Deep well sockets are for holding two cigars

    Ash tray was a gift a few years back..

    Was looking for timing chain for bottom, but used Harley chain instead.

    Fits just like I wanted it to..

    I am no pro, but love doing this stuff, and at (76) years old with my "Body Restrictions" I can still do this stuff...

    I like that. Looking forward to finished condition.

    Read somewhere once that a brake drum makes a cool air cleaner.

    When I saw the title, I was expecting some finned aluminum one.

    I looked at some finned ones.. really liked them, but a bit fancy for my car...
    A friend of mine is now considering making one out of a fined one...

  21. ^^^^^ Ditch the pan and get another valve cover. Then you'll have a 67 SS Chevelle hood.
