I think it is done, at least to the Mad Max standard this project is going for... sub-rat rod...


Project #3 66 Chevy Camper

Picture #1 Our high tech welding shop

#2 The New Battery Box

#3 Yet another patch. BTW, this Rustoleum "Rusty Metal Primer" is good stuff... It doesn't seem to let water through...and i'm going to enamel this truck, if it ever does see paint at all...

And i seem to have very carefully filled the mounting hole for the horn relay...small problem

Project #3 the 66 Chevy... Welded a little on the front clip..Pretty hot out there. No shade tree, only an umbrella. Whine whine

But anyway, i don't know how this upper part got rusted out, but it was.. So it was a hole, and now it is metal.. A poor thing, but mine own...Got more done on the battery box, which is even uglier. a few more hours, and i can slap this spavined poc back together.. spent most of yesterday and today riding bicycles... The Virginia Creeper trail is 17 miles, all downhill... all through woods in a National Forest.. Weeeee...

Got the steering column and wheel in the 66 chevy, and got a heater hose to work in the Opel, and Jason was putting the engine in the 61 Falcon.. Ran and got parts and started cleaning out the beer keg for the fuel tank for the bondo bucket roadster.

Found out nothing matches the threads on the Model T gas cap i bought, so i will have to figure out something else..

Project #6; Can't get a radiator hose for the Opel. one end is 1 3/8" and the other is 2"... Hand me the jb weld... i need to get it in gallons, i think..could get an oil filter, and got a spare tire.. The guy at the parts store said a buddy of his had an Opel with a SBC in it once...(cue the evil laughter) I see a shark mouth paint job in this bug's future.

Project #3; the 66 chevy.. still trying to scab the front clip together...even my cruddy welds are better than what was on there... I found a battery box and am trying to clumsy it into the inner fender... The old one was was buggered up twice and rusted out three times...

Project #1; The toyota doodle bug.. I think i found the oil leak. The drain plug is buggered somehow...I actually got it up on a lift and saw the problem... I guess i'll have to put in a rubber plug, the drain hole is 14 mm, too big to get a self tapping oversize one...Easier to fix than a rear seal. Off to Tractor Supply

Got the shoebox running once i figured out that the gas gauge was malfunctioning and it was bone dry... Fired right up...Now for the brakes and tires and figure out what is wrong with the electrics... the battery rotted its mount away and fell into the passenger foot well... Something that looks like it might be a fuse box is right there..so that's a clue...


It's almost a shame it fired up. The engine compartment is huge...it might even take a V-8... Now if i had a wrecked V-6 S-10, i would be in business... we'll see what the junk gods send us..

Two more or less running cars for 150.00... cool...
