    I've been playing with some old glass. Going to try it on my own. I have 2 windshields and all the old side glass. If it doesn't go well I will be on here asking for help. Back glass will not need cut.
     
  2. Unless the shape changed the side glass should fit. It just wount roll up as far.

    I have one of those van axles in my car. Shortened the long side 8" to center the housing.

    I'm a bit ahead of you, my new shop (I know it doesn't look new..) is far enough along that I got under the hood of the new toy today and tried to figure out where the $%@# ballast resistor goes, as apparently the previous owner didn't think it needed one.

    They're 20 footers but sorry to disappoint, they're composite paralams. I got 4 of them plus about 40 I-joists out of a warehouse demo for $300.

    I found the ballast resistor hole in the Corvette firewall. Turns out it takes a special clutch head screw, right into the fiberglass. Or a wood screw.. :eek:

    Kinda weird place for one

    Salvaging not one, but two 32 heavy axles I found as a running gear under a buddy's propane tank. Close to getting done. Then to Okie Joe for a drop and drill. 1612555359890.jpeg

    And to celebrate, my wagon yelled and said "let's go down the road and back big guy!" So we took a quick trip and parked in a different spot :D 20210206_150228.jpg 20210206_150241.jpg

    Hooked up the battery tender and checked tire pressures. Gave the motor a wipe down. I like it clean. 20200625_204208.jpg

  29. Worked on the start of a grille surround today; stupid rod wasn't very cooperative in matching the shape of the grille; even though it seemed to last week when I bent it. Eventually capitulated and I tacked it to the mounting tabs. Took way longer than it should have.

    Made a new mount for my steering rack. When I got my Bantam it had a Corvair box mounted in front of the grill. No room for rear steering so found a circle track rack narrow enough. Took a ton of adjusting but got it steering and handling great. Doing some winter maintenance I noticed the mount I had made was bent. So I made a new one out of 2x4 box steel.
