We get to here.. I used this frame because it is a lot narrower than the later ones, it ought to fit the 36 cab with out a lot of messing around like i had to do with the 47 cab.

And i think i'll use the stock spare tire mount, looks like the tire has never been used. That is assuming it's not rusted into a solid block of iron oxide.

Three of the tires pumped up, so that's good. Two studs on the left rear brake drum are broken, the rest of it looks ok. But it was never painted, so i will have to fix that and paint this sucker.

Got a good day, trees are budding out, and i got a good look at the Nissan frame for the 47. I almost messed up, it's asymmetrical like the Toyota, but i didn't do myself too much harm.

And finally got the Datsun for the real rod (well semi real) 160.00 delivered, total with frame, cab, trans and assorted 36 parts 520.00 so far.. Might try and rebuild the 302's into one and use that. Still haven't gotten the 250 back from the machine shop.. No hurry.

Tried to get to work on the 47, but ran out of MIG gas. About par for the course.

Got the bottom of the floor supports welded and ground, Put a little Kitty hair on the seams on one side and primed that, end of precious work day. Bah.

Oh well, there are some signs of Spring beginning to show.

Was going to weld today, but too windy. Didn't want to start a grass fire.

So i changed the oil in the Purple Thing, put on a new fuel pump, and put in the HD radio my wife bought me for Christmas.

And here is a picture of the Frankenwagen and the Roadster, waiting for paint.

Another three trips to the parts store, they finally figured out Toyotas use metric.. So i went to the junk yard and got the splitter for the real brakes, and got fluid to both rear wheels. That's about it for this wreck. I will pay somebody to put in the windshield and try to sell it. If it won't sell, i will put plates on it and take it to the punkabilly car show the 4th of July.

I need to get on the 47 Ford rat rod, and get the decks cleared for the real hot rod. Was supposed to get the Datsun frame this week, but it snowed.
