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.
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.
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
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..
