    I did good. Got the fuel tank for my daughter's Nash set up - sender, pickup tube, fittings... ready to install.
    Made good progress on her floor, got the trans tunnel fabbed up to go around the auto trans and still have install / removal clearance and plenty of footroom.

    What'd you all get done?

    All I did was try to decide weather to try to get my interest back on my project or to part it out or sell it and move on. So I got nothing done this weekend.
     

  5. Mowed a lot of grass.

    Spent Saturday at the flea market helping the wife sell some of her old clothes, most of the day was a bust, really slow, oh well.
     
  15. Mowed grass, spread two yards of gravel with my trusty shovel, moved my daily driver into position so I can work on it (its still sitting there) helped a buddy install an invisible fence for his dogs, finally made it into the garage on Sunday to clean up and change the tires on the cragars for my wagon and fixed a couple of mowers that were given to me.

    All in all, a good weekend...

    Went for another try around the block and broke down again.....,my dad has been my tow service last weekend and this weekend.Sucks when it runs fine in the driveway(1000 feet long) and then as soon as I take it to the road I make it 4-5 blocks and it shuts down.I owe my dad some beers and some good`ol Maryland crabs for being "on call" lol all in all I still see it as progress.Maybe next week after working on it all day I will make it 10 blocks lol

    Raining here, no mowing to do. Besides, we left the Prairie grass and dont have anything but gravel in front of the house!

    Got the 32 frame dialed in for the body, 1/2 done, spot on. Get to do the other side tomorrow. Couldnt help myself and mocked up the headlights,fog and grill shell to see...........
     
  19. I redid the exhaust on the T then promptly blew a rear wheel cylinder the next morning. Picked up the wheel cylinder, then went to the Gasser Series event and watched some great racing, got home and fixed the car.

    Hmmm... Went to So-Cal Phoenix's monthly swap and traded some parts to get the right manifold for my modified's 2300cc Ford, Helped organize and attended a meeting to bring a Billitproof show to Phoenix, sanded the engine compartment on my girlfriends Ranchero, finished the kickups for my clients "T" speedster chassis, finished painting the 170 for the girlfriends Ranchero, Had lunch at Rosita's Place and didn't slip into a coma, went to a club Sunday morning breakfast, pulled a bell housing from another clients '63 Dart so I could get measurements to re-order his hydraulic throw out bearing tomorrow, shut down a BMW 5 series on the way there, stopped at a friends house to check out his brake lines (he got them right!) I managed to drive all three of my licensed cars somewhere this weekend, Laid out the steering on my other clients Bantam, and finished the weekend with a damn great pork roast at my parents house. Damn, it's amazing what you can get done when your girlfriend is far away in Hong Kong! No wonder I'm tired...

    Pulled the Starliner Home... I figured that 8 weeks until Bonneville was long enough and I should get it started if I am driving it there...
    Pressure washed it; built a trans mount and motor mount, rebuilt the battery tray for a larger battery, and mocked in the radiator...
     
  28. working out a few bugs!
