Couple of members have mentioned in passing that I've been absent lately. Well, leaving the house just before 7:00 and not getting home 'til close to midnight doesn't leave me much time to get on-line anymore 'cept to order stock on Friday nights. (I dont do any wiring on Fridays) Been thrashing on then '34 straightening out the mess the "professional shop" made of the body and paint work last winter. Back in November of 2002 Dave Simard and I made some repairs before it went off for the re-paint and I stripped the cowl down to bare metal from the hood lip forward. I got the car back just before I left for Australia and it was painted RED instead of Bronze. I sanded and buffed it out to make it presentable for the season but as soon as I got back from the NSRA meet in Burlington, VT, I started stripping off the re-painted (bronze) areas. Most of the bronze paint's been sanded off again and I found a LOT of body filler in the cowl so I ground it all out and found out why it had cracked in places. It turns out the guy that originally painted my car for me in 72 replaced my gas-welded firewall and brazed the new one in instead of welding it in. THATS why it had started to crack apart. Anyway, I cut off the brazed-on firewall and made a whole new one. I straightened out the sides of the cowl while I was at it and I even fixed the dent in the right side of the cowl where the 58 Mercury u-turned into me back in 66. Right now, Im in the process of hammering out all the little dents left when the cowl was hacked up back in 72. Needless to say, this doesnt leave my much time to get on line anymore. If anyone is looking for hemi or electrical info, e-mail me and Ill try and answer your questions Fridays when I log in. Ive got tons of pics of the progress but theyre all high resolution shots and they take forever to upload on this dial-up. Maybe, someday, Ill truck on down to Charlton and use Dennis high speed connection and get a bunch of em up on Webshots. For now, though, I hafta keep workin on the car or it wont be ready for the 04 season.
