10-21-2011 01:18 PM Building a frame for a future car projec
Welded nut plates for body mounts & stops for the boxing plates in the new frame rails. Used the old sedan frame as a "fixture" to properly locate and weld together my future roadster project frame (am I crazy or what, lol).

Finished the roadster frame by welding in boxing plates and crossmembers - FINALLY DONE!

10-21-2011 01:15 PM Enter Project Mini Bike
Almost forgot, took some time off to build a mini bike with my son. First picture shows what we started with. Last couple show it finished with a cool "Monsters on Mini Bikes" sticker we put on the clutch cover we fabricated.

10-21-2011 01:03 PM Take it all apart for finish welding
Long time since the last update. Stripped the car down to bare body & frame (removed the engine, transmission, rear axle and suspension, front axle and suspension, steering, etc.) Welded up some spreader bars & mounted the frame to two engine stands, rotisserie style. Finished welding & grinding on the sedan frame. Decided to build another frame for a future roadster (convertible) project while I had the bare sedan frame to use as a "fixture" (see frame pieces up on wall in background pic #2). Ground & fitted boxing plates for the new frame.

11-08-2009 08:41 PM Master cylinder door & Peanut Gallery
Built the door to check the master cylinder level. Need to add a strip of half inch foam around the door perimeter. The kids are sitting in the "back seat" waiting for Dad to take them on the first ride.
