so what is everyone working on this winter?
been too cold in garage to do much so gonna work on the T parts inside until weather gets better.
Just picked up this 48 plymouth -
No brakes - master cylinder needs rebuild.
Has not run in 5 yrs - SBC /Auto should run
Broken hood hinge / hood fitment issues. Will not latch.
Too much gaudy crap all over it - toning it down a bit.
If I can solve these issues and have it on the road in the spring with no heat in my WI shop, I will be happy.
Working on the A
Finishing up my 48 F-1 before spring gets here
The weather has been much much much much better than normal here. Working on the avatar car, thinking about a build thread. Rustoleum red is the color of my garage floor..........
Been pretty good here for last couple weeks- got the motor and trans mocked up in the A, and got the rear end installed. Maybe by the time my Christmas vaccation is over I will have the floor installed.
I'm putting another motor in my 1926 T I'll post pics later.
Installing 32 tank on my Model A coupe. hope to have it done by New Year. Then working on other areas, steering, top, fenders, etc.,etc.,etc.
Nothing over wild getting done but the car and caravan are getting some love. Amazon is mainly getting a lowering, new rims and WW's and a tidy here and there. Would like to do alot more and have plans but all boils down to money and i'm currently not working.
My caravan is due a little tidy, some hidden speakers and one of those small amps to run an i-pod through. Not fan of music in cars but the caravan needs it for when we go away to shows.
winter builds ? hell im still trying to finish last winter builds.lol funny, but true!
Replacing the cab corners on a '49 AD pickup and putting the rest of the sheetmetal back in place (bed, front clip, etc.)
I'm wrapping up a few loose ends on my '35 and then going to get started on my '33. No rush on the '33 but I have a ton of parts to get started so I'm expecting it not to take to terribly long. I'm really excited about it because as long as I've been into hot rods, I've wanted a wire wheeled, flathead powered early ford and this is going to be that car.
Gotta do the front floor in the Belair. We are doing a engine swap, lowering and paint on my sons 62 Comet. My plate is full. Todd
