09-27-2007 05:43 PM On My Own
I have to move all my c---stuff out of Jason's so i will be working on my own.. Brought over a load of stuff for the bondo bucket, first load, and then the 250, the 302 block, the Ford trans the second load.

Picture #1,

Got the engine between the rails of the Rat Rod, and started to see what i need to do to make that fit. The All-terrain Cherry picker worked fine under load, so that's cool. I can move it safely even on dirt.

Picture #2

And then Darryl helped me move the 302 block and tranny, and we tilted the cab back so i can start welding... I guess i will have to get a buzz box and figure that out. Might get a TIG

09-26-2007 07:41 PM Lotsa Stuff.
The machine shop finally got the 250 block bored and the head redone, after 6 months... Now i need to get the money, honey. No hurry on that.

I will try and build that at home, now that i have a dry place to work..

Have to go get the Frankenwagen and the Motor for the Rat Rod tomorrow and try to get it on the frame, and start making that work. Stick shift on that one.

I had to weld up the muffler on the Purplething today, the 'professional' weld broke... I did as good as i could with no lift, i might have to have it redone..

And Jason got the clutch master on the bondo bucket, as soon as he mounts the slave, i will bring that home too..

And i got the cone well and the top on the steel Wishional guitar today, didn't have enough time to grind it down...

Tomorrow, truck stuff.

The engine is out of the 73 Chevy, and John is not going to use the bed, so i have a rear end for the next project

And Jason has the steering and the body mounts done, bolted the front end back together.. . everything but the clutch hooked up I got to get the master cylinders from the junkyard, and soon i hope, i'll be banging this sucker's body together, and trying to put the engine in the rat rod.

Pix, #1 Empty Chevy, #2 Steering wheel and body mounts.. #3 Steering box and shaft roughed in..

Jason, if he can still stand it, will be building the 302 for the Falcon Ranchero, and stuffing that in... I need to finish some books, take some pix for a magazine article, dummy up- a book proposal, and, make a bunch of basses, and stuff..

Then, next week..

Got tired of looking at those silly little wheels on the Rat Rod, so when Daryll's worker offered me these, i took'm... Ten bucks each, rusty, but that's the salvage biz..

And i hear Jason got the 73 chopped up and the engine out.. Going to make a trailer out of the bed and rear end, so i will have to promote another one...

Actually started on Project #9, the C-Cab. Well, looked at the rear end, and sprayed some solvent around.. later for that mess.
