    Well i haven't been able to get on the computer much lately with work and the kids hoggin it most of the time, so i had to pull the "Alpha Male" card, and run everyone off.
    Just to get you back up to speed. I bought that
    '41 Buick a year or so ago, and i had plans to sub it, so "Mightymouse" and me started tearing the front end apart, and then i had to squirl-away the car at my buddy Jerry's house while i worked on the truck. Finally this last Sat. i went over to his house and we pulled it in his garage and did the swap. I'll go back tomorrow morning to finish it up with him despite all the liquid sunshine were having.
    Some pics so far.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Oh, i forgot to also say that were doing his '50 Buick in another week or so and i plan to take more precise step by step pics for a complete tech week thread. It took just four hours to get it back on its wheels and that was with a DerWienersnichel break, fixin the old ladys vacuum, and freeing the sub frame from its cage in the backyard. :D

    Finally got the Buick home last weekend when we moved "Mightymouse's" bug out of the way, to make room in the garage. The rain kinda screwed our little tech we were doing, but "Mightym" will be there to shoot pics of the '50 Buick sub swap we'll do as soon as the weather gets better. Some recent pics of mine. Rear lowered, getting some '53 Buick eyes, and preping to fill what seems like a THOUSAND holes!!!
