  2. Actually started this project last weekend. Went over to a friend's shop and we took about 10.5" of width out, jigged it up and welded everything. Yesterday and today I started mocking it all up

    Putting the two pictures together like that really shows the difference. Looks great!

    Day before yesterday (the day of the big storms in Iowa) I wanted to get some miles on the 38 Chevy to determine where the oil leaks are emanating from (ultraviolet oil additive) so we drove about an hour to Atlantic to have Chinese at a restaurant my wife loves. Stopped at two of the kids work places to visit also. A few hours later the storm came through and ruined three trees. Glad we were home:) It will be a few days until I look for leaks, while I cut wood:(

    Went out last night and got caught in the rain! Took the A pickup out to a local cruise night/toy drive event at a new place I haven't too before, but wish I had. It's called the Highway 39 Event Center, maybe some other guys are familiar with it. Wow, the place has a super car collection. As soon as you walk in the door you're greeted by an early T-Bird

    Then you walk into the main room and all the way around the perimeter is filled with classic cars, all finished to museum quality. The first 3 you see are a 32 roadster, a 32 3-window and a 33 3-window,

    Sorry about the quality of the photos, the lighting was really poor for photos.

    Here's a nice 40 cabriolet

    My friends band was playing on the stage:

    Here's the pickup out in front. I uploaded some pics of other cars at the cruise night portion of this, but decided to delete them because they included some not so HAMB friendly cars/wheels.

    Was a wet ride home, water was flyin' off the tires! I was worried about the distributor getting wet, and it did start to run a little rough, but we made it home with no problems, other than being a little wet and cold. Not too bad though.

    Made the trade on a 34 Plymouth frame. Removed all the body parts and put my 34 4-dr parts body on and hauled them home. Now work can begin in my dad`s unheated shop. Scan0806.jpg Scan0760.jpg IMG_20211017_0003.jpg

  25. After an extended period of time ( longer than I’ll admit) I replaced the exhaust manifold gaskets on my F-100. Better late than never I suppose but I should’ve done it years ago.
     
  26. Checked out the fit on my newest purchase of a late 1931 leaping ram radiator cap....fits like a glove! IMG_3212.JPG
     
  27. Got my sbf back from the machinist on Monday. Bored .030, crank turned .010/.010, balanced and ready to assemble. Just one problem: I go into hernia surgery in eight hours and not supposed to pick up anything heavier than a hint for a few weeks. By that time the unheated garage will be inhospitable. I'm hoping for a couple of warm days in early February when I can thrash up a storm without being in pain or discomfort. Once that's done, I start to disassemble and overhaul the AOD. It will be my first solo on an automatic, but a guy's got to learn sometime, eh? In the meantime, there's a rebuilt 4160 Holley (600 cfm) on the local exchange that I'm thinking should be just right for my 351 with aluminum (1.90 intake) heads and an RV hydraulic cam. If it's still there after surgery, I'll go take a look later in the week.

    I finally have some OEM colour on the lower body. The 'matched' paint had to be tweeked slightly to match the previously supplied colour used on interior and underbody. A few more coats and clear before the roof and trunk are done. Remaining hang on panels in the new year.panels. Not too sure on whether or not it'll be in the shed by Christmas 2021 for reassembly to commence. 267272217_312596477390877_2990074615183745134_n.jpg 266681855_262389815957982_8214430218738428329_n.jpg
