Noticed a little brake fade on the t-bucket yesterday so I'll be looking at the brakes on it soon.
Been thinking about doing the 5 lug disc brake swap on the 57 as an excuse to use some of my vintage wheels I have laying around.
Speaking of wheels just traded a set of my 3.5 Fenton Gyros for 2 sets of skinnies to help a friend out.
Then there's the off topic projects and normal life of a single dad, just not enough of me to go around these days.
Building an early style wheel stander using a 50 Chevy truck body that was a basket case and should have been junked. Pics below.
Also building a 50 Ford T Bird to the Southeast Gasser rules for a customer.
Here's a link to the truck build thread if anybody is intrested https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum...-stander-project.1184040/page-7#post-13654120
Life kind of got in my way a bit but I finally got this car on the road last week. Now I'm working on putting a few miles on it while I tend to some other work.
..a simple planned "scuff & paint" turns into a "better fix THAT before paint" and before you know it....
Anyway, it's all painted satin black now and going back together.
I have thought with all your projects to keep you out of trouble you must be full throttle every waking minute.
You must roll at the same speed as swade41 and the comment I made about him.
The last records i kept was in 1988 (only 28 years old at the time) at that point i had built 72 drag cars for myself and customers. Back then it was mostly modified and super stock cars where a roll bar and back 1/2 was all that was required. during that time I did one pro stock car, several other full chassis cars and one rear engine dragster. At this point (60 years old) i have no clue how many cars would be on that list because i quit keeping up with it in 1988.
