    Sunday is a good day to get delicate work done on speedometers. No one expects you to be at the shop so no interruptions.
    47 Ford today

    Should I rush your rush job or the rush job I was rushing when you rushed in?

    From the BillyBob Shop log

    June 8th 2020 Windshield wiper replacement arrived from Chevys of the Forties in a round about way. I couldn't change the shipping address unless I signed up for a data mining "membership" and I declined so I had to pick it up at a UPS drop off point. The wiper motor is considerably more compact in depth and will fit nicely behind the valance.

    I fiddled around with the angled shaft spacers of the old wiper, which I wanted to use, until I broke the outer one and abandoned that idea. It was pot metal and, while securing it to drill it out larger, I turned one piece of pot metal into three.

    Then I installed the wiper motor with the jam nuts that came with the kit and everything was fine. Ran the wires down thru the A-piller and put the wiring diagram with the other dashboard items for completion later down the road. Beer of the day was East Sixth Brewing's 6 IPA India Pale Ale.

    I dig the music, very cool. But >15 minutes of it gets tiring. Would've been good to change it up half way through maybe. Do you mind saying who it is? Thanks!

    I was not impressed with the scrub line, which the original builder thought was a good solution. Skärmavbild 2020-06-11 kl. 14.25.33.png
