Been working on the trailer. Pushing to get done with the ceiling project. Thursday night the new ceiling panels were loosened so Liquid Nails could be applied. The screws were holding fine, but it is now more secure.
The battery had to be replaced in the scoot, so that slowed me down a bit on Friday evening.
Saturday the battery was finally re-installed and the bike started. Hooray!
The lights were finished and the trailer cleaned out. I still need to fix the incorrectly installed break-away brake controller and hook the truck power line up to the battery so it will charge while towing. Before that gets done, the tongue box needs to be installed. Still trying to figure out how to do that. For now, it is good to have the interior lights done and working.
Adjustments were made to the driver's door for the power window. Areas of the door were ''massaged'' with a hammer and dolly until the window went up and down easily. The window garnish molding vibrated while the window went up, letting out a horrendous howl. A little bit of hammer work cured that.
The camera used to shoot this did not have sound, but you get the idea. One down, one to go.
While the car is still in the air I wanted to get the starter cable sorted out. After determining the best route, holes were drilled and tapped. The tank was pulled out once the location of the hole location in the frame was determined. There is an electrical box nut which will be welded to the frame so the nylon strain relief will thread in.
Tore the front end apart again to finish the fan. Took the opportunity to clean the new tranny cooler bracket and give it a quick shot of self etching primer.
Once the core support was on the body panel stand, the radiator was removed and stored. A couple of 1-1/4'' wide strips were cut and then bent to shape. Two rosettes each and a couple of mounting holes and the fan mount is done.
The bracket was located on the center brace for the grill, the holes were drilled, and 1/4'' bolts were installed. The pop rivets are there to make sure there would be room for them behind the flange of the brace. The cooler was then put in place with some clecos.
The cooler lines were cut to final length. Tube to AN adapters were installed. Hose was cut and ends installed.
Did not get the top bracket tabs made and welded in for the upper front fan mount. Once that is done and some minor adjustments are made to the holes for the tranny cooler lines. The front will be basically done.
