can't get project journal to work so heres my rat rod build
I havn't ever been able to get the project journal to work in Ubuntu linux, and somthing happened to my Windows partition and havn't bothered fixing it, so I havn't updated my project journal....
cut out the firewall..
removed 6" from the bottom and welded on bottom rail.. 1st welds my new welder welded..
bolted it on ( drilled and tapped frame )
built the lower body framework ( no pics ) and the front window framework
some pics got lost so.. skip ahead and the location has changed to my grandparents garage as it's easier to work around and they suggested it.
rear cab wall in place.. I did close up the rear window opening a little
lower cowl panels and roof in place
up on the saw horses getting ready to channel it 6"
6" channel complete
Way to go Matt.
Looking good and working fast! Will be watching with interest. What kind of bed are you doing? Later--John(Maynor)T.
the bed will be just a basic open top rectangle. probably a little wider than the frame.. it will house the battery and the gas tank, which will be a converted air tank
well. I was trying to figure out my P-30 ( Chevy Delivery van ) gauge cluster and I kept hearing ratteling inside the cluster and eventully the glass was loose.. pulled it apart to find what was left of the rubber/ plastic bumpers that held the glass tight... fix was quite easy.. I replaced the plastic bumpers with clear silicone caulk, let it set up for an hour and then put it back togther.. rattle free now
1st pic is the reminants of the bumpers
If I can figure the wiring out, the cluster will be used in the Rat.
little update... the air tank gas tank now has a filler neck welded in.. still no fuel pickup, because I have not made that provision yet
