    Wide fives are like the "knucklehead" of hot rods. It's like I keep flinching from fear of getting cold cocked!

    Here is a little update ... I spent the week getting the car fit up so the chassis could go to paint . I rushed like hell Friday to get the car blown apart so. My buddy could shoot it in his booth .. I dropped it off Friday night at 9 o'clock . By Sat morning I had all the components . Sunday morning he called and the chassis was ready .. which is today.... today has been long ! I assembled the entire chassis , aligned it, ran brake lines , andI'm just about ready to set the engine and trans back in... I still have clamps to install the line clamps. I had to put disconnects in the center of the frame so the lines were removable . next week we are painting the underside of the body so I am bolt it down for good .. here's a few photos

    My trans was totally rebuilt , but I wanted to just check it out and reseal it .. so I finished that up, shot some red on it and set the motor in its final resting place.

  12. Hi Been!
    I'm curious about the gearbox, it's an A883 Barracuda?

    I got a Hot rod Ford and two dollars bill!

    Some updates .
    I've been swamped with work and haven't had time to do much at all. I had a few small spots to weld on the body then We got the underside all seam sealed and painted . My custom radiator arrived. Absolutely no room for a mechanical fan. So I have to run a 12" electric fan to clear the pulley. I got one that flows 2250cfm. Which is a boat load for the size . It'll work just fine . Clutch linkage is all done. Brakes are all done and blead out. Spent some time and narrowed up the gas pedal to clear the distributor. I put the welting on for the body mount bolts. The self adhesive back is really nice for keeping it in place .

    I also picked up a new tig welder yesterday . Lincoln square wave 175. Time to start playing !

    Body is back on ! Thanks to the guys in my club for freezing their asses off at 10 o'clock at to get this thing loaded up and set in place ! Had the new driveshaft cut to length and new u joints installed . Also installed the bulkhead fitting for the fuel supply line, and the rollover tank vent valve.
    I've been fighting the doors . Big time ! The male and female dovetails do not line up . And the dovetails from vintage are absolutely garbage. So I ordered some united pacific adjustable dovetails for the doors. Then had to cut apart the female ends and re align everything . What a pain in the ass!

    Sent the fire wall out for sand blasting . I just wasn't happy with it not being fresh. It goes to paint Monday

    Fitting my old Moon fuel block ... such a great story behind this specific part. It was once at bonneville. I promised the old dude I'd get it back there some day . I have an oil cleaner from the same bonneville car. It may just go along for the ride to bonneville as a package, just to show it's was there exactly 50 years since the last time it saw the salt .
    Also finished up the fuel lines all the way up the car. Installed the radiator cap and bezel ... ford emblem cracked the instant I tightened it down... good stuff !!
