What are you working on this weekend

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Verbal Kint, Nov 26, 2010.

  1. Thank you and humble thoughts for those serving in the armed forces away from their own family on this Thanksgiving in order to protect my Life and Liberty.

    My "pursuit of happiness" will block sanding bondo and guide coats, listening to my worn out Allman Brothers CD. Body work even in the small amounts I have is damn tedious work.... but if I want it straight.

    Any HAMBers working on anything interesting?

    I'll be doing some shop cleaning and then finish welding in a new left rocker panel on my 54 wagon. Snow has us pretty well chased inside.

    My 63 Chevy shortbox fleetside. Last weekend got the front clip off & 6cyl & 3 speed manual out. This weekend I hope to get the front suspension & crossmember off & install the crossmember from a 1980 Chevy half ton. This gets me power disc brakes & power steering so the wife can drive it. HAPPY WIFE, HAPPY LIFE!

    Finding someplace to turn my front drums, installing them, bleeding brakes, and hopefully getting the old girl back on the ground for the first time in months. While doing the front suspension rebuild, I cut a coil from the springs- it will be cool to finally see how much of a drop it gave me.

    Getting started on Project "F***ing Falcon".


    I call it that because we bought this '62 Falcon for me to drive to work everyday. But, because of previous owners jerry rigged, half-assed, and down right crappy "repairs" over the years, every time I tried to drive the thing, something else would cause me to call it; "F***ing Falcon"!

    I'm tired of trying to patch stuff up so we decided to give up, and rip the thing apart and do things right.

    It's going in the garage this weekend and plans are to pull the engine and trans and fix up a few things there, then completely re-wire the car from headlight to tailight. The goal is to have it all "right" by spring.

    I am working on remaking the area above my rear window on the 59 Nomad out of parts from two bad ones and some new steel. i am still hoping to find some of the parts (see my wanted post) but will proceed on a dual path for now. i have one lead so far on some from a fellow HAMBer and should know about them in a few weeks. meanwhile it is a good learning experience to try making them myself.

    bought a cast aluminum finned battery cover plate. Making a template for a radio blockoff plate for my '50 Ford. Car was a Crestliner and already had the solid speaker blockoff plate that says "Crestliner" in the bottom chrome (hmm, wonder what that is worth?). Once I have the plate cut out, it will go to a machine shop guy that owes me a favor (brand new Fiero V6 I scored for nothing from Votech). He will machine it to hold two winged SW gauges (oil press/water temp) that will fit in stock radio hole in dash so I don't have to cut dash. Should look old style. Stock gauges are erratic, temp gauge runs high, instrumented engine with thermocouples, thanks to ex-IC tech buddy and it runs 165-172 with 160 degree thermostats.

    Back to work on my 55 Chrysler that was "finished" last Dec. Drove it all summer, now I will pull out the padded dash cover and re-cover it.
    The big problem was that you must pull the windshield to remove it. Thats not going to happen!
    I noticed that a late model 55 Chrysler had a different dash in it, it was cut different so that you could remove it from the inside, so I have padded the windshield with rubber to protect it and am going to cut the dash in place with a cutoff wheel in order to remove it.
    I will then make a ss moulding similar to the one used with the latter model dash to fill the space.
