    14DB2618-2852-4F22-869C-B5696BAAF6E8.jpeg I drug home a Dodge 315 Hemi! It was sent through a machine shop about 15 years ago and then never assembled. Just been under a bench, covered in WD40. Should be a fun little project!

    selling some parts so I can buy more parts.
    Bought some new drill bits, and some safety goggles so I can relocate the steering box plate.

    Refurbishing an old 1800’s light pole for the historical district. During that time 90 % of them were made at Union Metal in Canton Oh.
    they just closed the place this year.

    Yes! The goal it to fill them with items I list and sell on (that auction site), most of them come from a local flower shop, flower shops get some of the best boxes, easy to cut to size. Bob

    That was Dad's Roadster, he passed away in 1983, last time the car saw the open road. Miss him every day. Bob

    Im impressed, Not sure to many others are paying attention, This has to be a rare talent and/or service being done outside of a industry setting.

    I can't imagine how you bend glass to make an exact replacement for a Vintage piece, must be a huge amount of equipment. Bob

    image.jpeg image.jpeg If the new locks and retainers show up it's likely I'll get this head back together and start on replacing the rings in my Jimmy before El Mirage. All just maintenance no problems. Putting the O-rings in the head groves is the biggest pain...

    Ran my stainless fuel lines, put in a couple bulkhead fittings and started on the flex lines on each end. Hated going from right rear to left front but that's the problem of a SBF with a mechanical pump in a '32. Would have gone down the left side but there was no room left in the 4 bar/crossmember area because of brake lines already run in that area.
