Wow! Thank you sir.
Keep this up and you will have it ready for PnP.
I finally got to drive yesterday, drove to my parents house.
Deuce grill and hood finally bolted down , still need to make aluminum spacers to go between frame and latches.
I bought these doors last week from a guy in Wisconsin, pretty happy with them. Today I primed fender spacers and bolted them on.
Generator finally mounted and belt on . New voltage regulator picked up , hope to wire it up this weekend.
Voltage regulator mounted on firewall, and wired. It’s charging good . I’ve decided to order all new S&W gauges tomorrow, & tail lights .
My swapmeet S&W speedometer bought last year, finally got around to picking up a new cable today. It’s 4 miles fast at 50, GPS says 54 . Not gonna worry with it now, when I put taller tires on rear it will change again . Then I’ll worry with it.
@peckerhead, congrats on your recent milestone, the pavement and hopefully a few dirt roads just like the Good Ole Days is yours to enjoy...It reminds me of the undone plated freedom envisioned in many an old Hotrod picture back in the day...fun times, thanks for sharing...
I went to a get together Saturday, about 17 miles . Yesterday I ordered a new fuel tank and taillights. Tomorrow I order hardware for windshield stanchion and all door latch and dovetail bs. from SNYDERS.
Got my 11 gal spun aluminum fuel tank from China Bill today, had a dent in it. Called them immediately, there sending a replacement.
Built some taillight brackets today.
Are you thinking of adding some type of cover and or "sealing" the back of the lights with something? Looks like a spot where all kinds of water and trash will be kicked there from the wheel?
, will be here next week.
Whoa thats fancy. I used electrical tape on mine.
Im a zip tie Freak!
Got my wood for bed cut , 13 ply. 3/4. Coated with Teak Oil.
