    Hope to fix all the leaks that have sprung up lately and get my quarters patched up. Would be thrilled to get my exhaust done too.

    finished the rotesserie, now to the rust repair after 95,000 miles of daily driver service (winter salt is a bitch). Bought new quarters from Bookville. Now just have to figure out the rust proofing. Way too old to do it again in a few years. MIKE

    make room in my little garage so I can work comfortably. Install a 2 way light switch so I can turn on the lights by the man door instead of going around to the front and opening up the garage door all the time. Put in more outlets for power instead of just the one in front and one in the back. Add some better lighting. Build my metal working table so I can mount my beadroller and shrinker stretcher I got back in the spring. Finally start working religously on my 40 dodge. I've owned this car for 7 years now and need to get going on it.

    Goal is to have caddy going by my birthday, april 30th. Got to put in new fuel tank, fix wiring issues, disc brake conversion up front, replace rear brake lines and shoes, finish hooking up quadrajet(both vac and fuel lines), new tires, body and paint work, and a new windshield. Limiting factor is mostly money.

    I've got a 53 Victoria to build for my wife, it's been sitttin for 8 years in the tall grass so the rust has been at work on the bottom of the ole girl. I plan to get the parts collected up and have the chassis rolling by spring. Anyone got a parts car in the south?

    I need to get my patch panels and floor back in my '53 so I can get started on the body work. Maybe it will see the road next summer??? Finally got a furnace for the garage after 5 cold years... took the last 3 weeks off of the car to build shelving, work benches, liquidate, and organize the garage to get ready for the white fluffy stuff to fall.

    Anyone need a looong harley chopper rolling chassis? This thing takes up just as much room as my '53. Bought it for the engine/trans... Damn impulse buys...

    Finish up the coupe, all the little stuff, to include pulling the engine, again, to replace the long style pressure plate and replace with a diaphragm style, which will enable the hyd clutch system to work a bit easier. Its all the little stuff that takes so much time. Next week I will finish up the windshield frame which will finally let me install the glass and I can drive it further than just around the neighborhood. I will definitely be on the road by springtime, can't frickin wait.

  29. Shoebox winter to do list:
    *Ad some side trim for elegance
    *Mount a electrical push type fan to keep the flatty cool during those hot summer days when in traffic
    *Change the regular rear leaf spring suspension to 4" Jamco lowering leaf springs
    *Remake the door sides (will ad some vinyl in the same color and tuck & roll pattern as the seats)
    *Remove the rear seams on the shoebox
    *Fix the sagging door hinges
    *A few minor adjustments will also be done
    And if I can and have time, I will start to experiment with a bullet delete grille

    Here is mine, a 52 Plymouth Suburban, but we don't really have a winter here. This weekend it will be in the 80's. I bought it from "BurqueBulli" in Joplin, Mo. Should be here in Florida in about a week. My plans are to get it safe & drivable and go from there. I have not had a Plymouth in about 40 years and have never worked on them, :confused: I'm a GM guy. This will be a whole new thing for me. :eek:
    I'll try to remember to take lots-o-pics and maybe do a build thread. At almost 65 my hard-drive is almost full, so I'll probably have to delete some Memory just to learn some new tricks. I think I'm up to it. :p
