    Made some motor mounts...They're not that sexy but....
    I'm in a "wanna drive it this Summer" mode.

    What happens when you assume stuff...I assumed both motor mounts was the same width...
    Even though I knew (most Mopar guys know) that they're different!
    Things go slower when you try to hurry up! 20150518_211806 (Medium).jpg 20150518_193709 (Medium).jpg
    All's finally bolted in again...1.5 inches higher!

    3/4" Flooring ...
    After paint (one day), I plan to use the teak "Boat deck looking" marine plywood with a tight fit.
    Trans Tunnel...Not sure yet...

    Seats are Done...............................
    20150519_212524 (Medium).jpg
    After this picture (sorry for the grin...Wife's being silly) I scooted back a couple of inches ... Much better!

    Here's a list of Steering box input shafts and u-joints from Speedway.
    The Chrysler box is a 3/4" 36 - Like GM.
    u-joint-chart-1.gif steering-u-joint-chart.jpg
    I found a Tri Five Chevy shaft on E-Bay for $35

    RECALL!!!
    OK...THAT DIDN'T WORK....Well it did anyways......

    The Tri Five Chevy Shaft wheel end didn't fit my Buick steering wheel...
    BUT the other end was a 3/4" 36 Spline (as advertised)...
    Just gotta drill a hole and thread it for a bolt to hold the steering wheel on.

    I guess I'll use the other end for my sedan later...With a Chevy steering wheel...? 20150520_164735 (Medium).jpg 20150520_164656 (Medium).jpg 20150520_164725 (Medium).jpg

    PLAN C
    I ordered a 3/4" hollow shaft and a quick connect steering wheel coupler from Speedway.
    (Thanks for the Super fast USPS shipping!)

    Didn't like that:
    The steering wheel has a tiny wobble when you tilt it..
    It's tight when trying to turn it...(Must not be engaged all the way)
    20150521_211551 (Medium).jpg
    Model A outer steering column - shortened (It'll be much shorter than that!)...
    Plan to use the levers for Blinker and...something.

    Put the pedals in to see how I fit in there...
    20150524_143123 (Medium).jpg
    With the BIG Buick Steering wheel I had to scoot the seat pan back a few more inches to get my legs in there...It's moved back ~ 5 inches now.
    20150524_192010 (Medium).jpg
    Still enough room to get in through the back doors.
    Leg Room...We'll see with the tank back there...

    Cut the old hub "compression welds" out of the Buick steering wheel.
    (Never bag on the "Hobby" Dremmel tool!)
    Will TIG weld the gaps tonight.
    20150527_163138 (Medium).jpg
    Made a template in the lathe to center / locate the bolt holes.
    Drill the three holes, make sure the bolts fit the new hub, center it on the wheel and transfer punch / drill it. 20150528_061447 (Medium).jpg 20150528_061436 (Medium).jpg
    If it's worth doing, it's worth over doing...

    Seat Frame
    20150601_203618 (Medium).jpg
    I'm still blown away that you can loosen bolts from 1929 (That's been out in the rain for xx long years)
    And remove three out of four with my hands & a hit of WD-40.
    20150601_200822 (Medium).jpg
    That's quality steel!!!

    Greased & put the top bushing on the shaft and TIG welded the steering wheel adapter on.

    And i dug this up...

    I was reading how Keith TArdell did the windshield slant on the Cannarozzi Roadster....
    So I had my 29 in front of me and I tried to photograph it...for me it turned out to be a happy medium..
    The upper cowl is slanted outwards so, The middle of the frame rests on in the back,
    and the ends stick out in front.
