    From the BillyBob Shop log

    March 17th 2020 Searched the next two tool boxes in the die grinder burr hunt.

    Outside the boxes were a Starrett precision straight edge, a battery tender and a master disconnect set. The top compartment of the top box had a Sons & Streiffe slide rule, a few wrist watches, novelty sun glasses, several padlocks, feet & inches calculator, key fobs, Masonic jewelry, high school graduation tassel and other assorted trinkets.

    Below that was a screwdriver and pick drawer, vice grip drawer, channellocks, snap ring pliers, needle nose pliers drawer, monkey wrench drawer and a allen head socket set, scissors assortment, small torx set, allen wrench set, small socket adapters, tap socket adapter set drawer.

    The lower toolbox top compartment was empty except for some dust bunnies and an ancient computer password on a post-it note. Below were a pliers, side cutters and bent needle nose drawer, misc sockets, extensions, combo wrenches, tubing wrenches, ratchet wrenches drawer, and a hammers, mallets, punches, drifts and files drawer.

    In the open compartment below was a seal installer set, hand laser marker, large screwdriver bits, body work slapper hammer, heavy duty drywall hooks, box of batteries and a box of hole saws.

    No die grinder burrs were found yet

    I read several non-fiction books. Tomorrow, I will likely do the same.

    My county, and the eight that surround it, are on lock down. That's about 7-million people.

    Went to a chrome shop along with the tail light and parking light doors. Got a great deal. It won’t be for Pebble Beach but great for our project. Photo will be here.

  13. I had removed the C4 transmission from my 47, last week. Spent today, on a creeper, with 4-1/2 grinder and zip wheel, cutting portion on X-member out, to fit automatic overdrive transmission. Car is on jackstands, ceiling is 8 foot, so only so much room for me and the metal dust. Transmission is just touching the toe board, so tomorrow, will be hammer yielding day.
    Our community is on limited social activity, which is my normal anyways. Just hope fab shop is open to brake me up some channel.

    Wiring this thing, its a fifty footer from any viewpoint, rattiest thing I've ever worked on. At least the wiring will look good. Got a poly in it, workmanship is poor to say the least, bordering on dangerous, the owner-builder beams with pride. I might add, it's definitely not mine.

    Finished the front axle replacement on my 28' sedan yesterday afternoon. I was able to take it for a spin about town and road tested it on the two lanes and the interstate. All is good. It is raining again this morning. I'll cleanup the garage this morning. I will get with Nostalgia Sid and see if my Superbell can be tweaked. I believe they are ductile iron not forged. Given the situation in our world now, a little open wheel time with throaty exhaust was great therapy.
     
  16. Ordered a frame for the '32 from Blackboard Hot Rods, guess I'm a 1-800 rodder now. (I'm okay with that at 72) shop08 004.jpg

    Better electrify it. Those zombies are crazy jumpers.
    Continued Bondo® dust manufacturing. Removing broken filler from prior-to-purchase rear smash. (Already fixed dent)
    40-grit D.A.'d over-bulbous repair on lower fender. Blocked with 80 grit. Sprayed guide coat. Blocked with 180. Needs skim coat of glaze. About 2/3 quart of filler on the top. If anyone ever tries the magnet thing I'll tell them it's fiberglass. IMG_20200318_184817.jpg

    Picked up the front bumper for our 56 Vic from Artistic Silver Plating on Signal Hill. I won a raffle at the Outridders Picnic for $850 and the receipt shows 550 used. They are known for their great work. I painted the back side with Eastwood cast iron because I had it left over. I also did the bumper guards. EF380FB5-BF63-4EA9-BBBC-EFB5664F6D63.jpeg

    From the BillyBob Shop log

    March 19th 2020 Cab bodywork and shop organization continues. Next in line is the shop "library". In plain sight is my Dad's Heathkit Oscilloscope that he and my brother assembled. In addition were a computer tool set, jeweler's drill, X-Acto knife set, tea filter and an alligator clip work holder.

    Below, Swedish ammo boxes that carried spare parts on both of BillyBob's road trips a decade ago still contain mostly BillyBob spare parts, some of which can be used on the Deerslayer reconstruction.

    Alternators, diodes, voltage regulators and wheel bearings are in box 1. Heater hose, hose clamps, Vacuum tubing and gas line hose are in box 2. More heater hose, thermostat and ballast resistor reside in box 3. Wheel cylinders, brake shoes, drum brake parts and hoses are in box 4. 6 volt starter, battery cables and terminals are in box 5. Fuel pump, fuel filter and filter elements reside in box 6. Box 7 is filled with a BillyBob bolt collection. Distributors, both points and HEI, voltage regulators, spark plugs, coils, both points and HEI, condensers and HEI module are in box 8. box 9 contains an inner tube, speedometer cable, spring shackles, throwout bearing, wheel bearings and seals, universal joint kit and tie rod ends.

    The die grinder bits and burrs have yet to be found. Beer of the day was Tommyknocker Brewery & Pub's Imperial Nut Brown Ale.

    The bumper is now on. I used new 1/2” bumper bolts instead of 7/16” and needed to enlarge a few holes but not on the bumper. F6BD5FCF-BA36-4521-B756-10FB2C8D72A9.jpeg
    Yes, there is the mandatory Y-Block drip pan under the engine.:p

    Busy day. Started off replacing a set of trunk hinges on the A coupe. Thought my eyesight was worse than normal but realized it was just crappy lighting in the garage.
    Took down all 16 - 4' florescent fixtures and replaced with LED units that I've had sitting on a shelf for more than a year.
    WOW ! Turned night into day.

  29. I worked on the neighbors tractor today, it has a cracked block so I did this nano technology treatment thing to it, the neighbor says it worked on something somebody else had that was cracked. I dont know if it will work or not but I need the tractor running to move vehicles around here and to move my 64 cab that is mounted on a roller frame to the fab shop. Same old crap got to fix two things to get to the one you need to fix. And in the after glow of Laroke the Beer of the day was Bud delivered to me by my wife who said it looked like I needed one or two. God I love her....

  30. G'day, I sold car parts until I was freed at the end of the day. Came home and have been sick all evening. Sure glad the wife stocked up on tp. I am guessing a touch of food poisoning.
