I installed a new alternator bracket (the old one as you can see was a hand made), yea it's a simple thing but I didn't know you could mount it in the low position. When I put it on, how I assumed was the correct way, the adjustment arm was touching the top radiator hose...not good. So rather than finding a new hose or making a different adj. arm, I turned the alternator downwards.
Got the new trunk floor and fuel cell in. I need to do a little trimming where the rubber line is on the edges. I also need to make covers for the sending unit etc. I need to raise the filler door on the fender as well. When I drove it to get gas it was not too good. If i fillled it too fast gas would come rushing back. If you notice in the picture the filler almost straight across, not good.
Mix a furniture designer with a car guy and here's what you get. Yes this is unrelated to the Studebaker but I thought I would throw this in. This is a chair I built in College while studying furniture design. Made from a 1959 English ford. This is what i did with the rest of the parts car i had. And yes the parking lights do work, and it's comfortable.
After putting the dropped leaf springs and blocks in, the drive shaft was rubbing the floor. The rear end was also hitting the frame. My first notched frame. Now i can put the 4" lowering blocks instead of the 3" that i had.
