    Hurricane Laura blew over Thursday. Lots of wind and rain but thankfully no damage.
    But there is no electricity for about a 60 mile radius.
    Hot and humid as hell. We have a generator but saving it to use at night only because have to drive across the state line to get fuel for generator.
    Have things I want to get done but it is too damn hot.

    Well, the learning continues... Finished the seat centers for the Stude. Making belt holes for the 5 point harness is a pain but I managed to muddle through. One more piece with a belt hole to go. Then start cutting stuff and sewing it up. IMG_20200830_160036896~2.jpg

    IMG_20200829_202714591.jpg took the die grinder to the block for my new roadster mill.
    Ground and smoothed the outside casting flash, then radiused and blended the oil drains and ports.

  9. Dug some stuff out to sell this next weekend - some stuff I pulled/took off some 35 years ago...still a year or 2 OT....
  10. Repaired the roof where the snow caved it in a couple of winters ago, spooned down the edges until the metal locked in place. then removed all the column shift linkage. Things are shaping up pretty good, I'm beginning to like this heap. DSCF5303.JPG DSCF5305.JPG
  11. Still getting stuff ready for our 36th annual Mopar meet this weekend....taking some NOS 50's stuff and some early 60's convertible stuff I've had some 30 years or so......

  12. Cut off the useless support rod bracket on the mystery radiator in the '33 and made a bolt one that matched the angle angle and height of the rods.

    After I finished wiring my '47; I removed the dash and column for paint; kinda left a mess of stuff hanging.

    Spent the day stripping parts off a crusty old '50 Chevy sedan, taking off anything that might be useful for my Fleetline project. And pulling sale-able stuff like the near perfect belt line trim, door handles, other misc. stuff. The 4 door sedans are getting popular around here, I guess all the 2 doors have been grabbed up, and there is a lot of useful stuff that I can pass along to someone in need.

    Went to shop today...It was 109 degreeso_O Fired up the 350 I built for the 56 210. Ran great no issues. My buddy Steve got the blown 350 running in his 50 Olds. Hung out with the guys ate Pizza went home. Good day in my book.
  19. Put a coat of high build on the trunk lid, column, and dash for my '47. Nice to be able to turn off the A/C and have the door open.

    Been struggling between making some front shock mounts or using F1's. Borrowed an idea from @Marty Strode and decided to fab some up. I'm happy with them, my daughter, who seems to spend every single minute she can in the garage with me, is happy with them. Maybe I did something right. The stud showing on the front axle is for my panhard bar. Still have to drill for the shock mount studs. Needed some weight on the front end to get the right mounted length for the shocks, the anvil was just sitting there. Hmmmmmm, I wonder if....? Just right:) Front shock mount.jpg Front shock mount 2.jpg Front shock mount 3.jpg Front shock mount 4.jpg

    IMG_20200907_103435718_HDR.jpg Actually the day before yesterday. Now is dirty time cleaning 70 years of grease and road dirt. Then the install of the stroked 265 and a muncie. The 235 and cast iron powerglide was still warm to the touch when a guy came to buy them.
