    I cut and modified my radiator supports, to allow the front cross member to slide forward, and still keep the radiator in front, on my model 40 coupe project

    Running cooler lines for the tranny in my '32 chassis. First time assembling coated/braided PTFE lines with AN fittings. I now have no skin on my thumbs. Time to get some brackets and mounts. Also made the hard line from the vacuum modulator to the back of the intake runner.

  13. Made some brackets out of box section to mount little motorcycle bullet-style turn signals underneath the Model T headlamps - then filled in the gaps to make it look like a cast piece. Just a small thing but I like it.

    Not car related directly, but I am finishing up the install of a nice little mini split heat pump and finishing up insulating and covering interior walls in the shop, and putting up some shelving so I can get organized and get the car inside to work on it. Summer will be here in no time and I will be nice and cool with the A/C so no excuses about it being too hot or too cold to work on the car anymore!

    even with 40 degrees and rain I did manage to install and check clearances on the bearing adapters I turned down to fit mopar rotors to the 37-48 spindles and they came out fine, I have .090 clearance between the pads and rotors so atleast I have one success this weekend !!

    now if I could manage to get the 440 pulled from the donor vehicle..... anybody free this afternoon ?

    Months ago I took apart a McCullough chain saw that needed new fuel lines after only 30 years ...made the fuel lines and installed them but have been procrastinating putting it back together because the throttle linkage went flying and I know I'm going to need three hands to put it together...I am going to do assembly while watching race; if the race starts as weather pretty wet in Atlanta as it is here in CT..Thats my story and I'm sticking to it..:rolleyes:

    Getting the lights up and running on the 40 Tudor thats been in limbo since 2013. I see the light at the end of the tunnel and its not a train. Ignore the wheels, they were replaced today with Vintage Genies and Pirelli V rated Cinturatos. Out of 5 tires and wheel only one required weights to balance. Should be street legal by Monday evening. IMG_3139.jpg IMG_3130.jpg IMG_3133.jpg
