    Installed new locking door handles,knocked the 1932 a/c (cowl vent) loose(and sealed it back room for the handle/mechanism).

    Timed ignition and adjusted carb.

    Then cruised to H-D to see if they had some SS bolts to replace the standard ones someone put in the steering wheel

    Will clean garage out tomorrow to make room for refinishing the bed

    Friday Did some wiring and rebuilt the carb on the 47 coupe and then tried to start it when the starter was making some bad noise so thought it needed to be shimmed i realized that theres no ground strap from engine to frame so i since i didnt want to spend my weekend being frustrated i went to visit my great friend B Chrismer and his 40 ford stake bed pickup at the NSRA nats today,needless to say i had alot more fun today then yesterday

    I plan to. Tomorrow I hope to finish wet sanding my hood and put a few coats of paint on it. May pull the rear fenders off and work on the wiring some more too. I need to install a 3rd tail light ( brake) in the back window. Hope it will give me a bit of insurance from dumb asses on their phone!

    Replaced the master cylinder, booster, prop valve, and added residual pressure valves today. Also re-ran most of the steel lines. Thought I was the only one staying home.

    Just got home from a bud's fabbing front air bag mounts for an A-arm setup, will got to the other bud's tomorrow to assemble Olds motor #2, will hopefully be droppin in motor into my 57 F100, along with fitting and wiring in the new front 'bags system, Monday. Devoting Memorial Weekend to my project each year: old habit. Finding friends who can commit and follow through: another story entirely.
