Technical What are you working on?

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Lloyd's paint & glass, Jul 18, 2022.

  1. 20220718_100415.jpg Not "what did you do to your car today", I know, that's already a thread, but I recieved a call to go put glass in a 57 Dodge COE last week, scheduled it for today. Kinda neat ol truck the way he's building it. So I took a couple of pictures. But when I thought I'd post them here, I wasn't sure where to put them, it's not mine, I didn't see it going down the road, so I started this thread. So, what are you working on? This fella is a retired college professor from northern Florida, moved to KY, pretty cool guy with a nice shop. 20220718_100403.jpg 20220718_100403.jpg

  7. I thought it was a pretty cool setup. Some of it is a little too much street rod for me, but he's building what he wants i suppose lol... lot of engineering going into the truck.

    I'm working on mending fences and getting the haying done here... so I can go to Ohio and bring back a 1926 Dodge 4dr to be cannibalized for my roadster project.
    Gonna cost a few bucks to get it back here.
    That's okay.

    Two hearted bells is from Kalamazoo my man. Named after something in the up I think?

    And I'm having a red stripe or ten and a sip of Bushmills now and then.

    I'm working on a new waffle cone mix formula. Sounds silly, but the last one I did sells about 7 million pounds of mix annually...

    Car wise? Happy to say it's been a slow summer for that, cause for a change I have no issues...
