03-11-2011 09:24 PM More progress!
Today, I went to my buddy Brad's salvage yard (Morris Rose Auto Parts in Kalamazoo) and picked a surge tank for the radiator, and a pair of plastic inner fender liners from some kind up of pickup. I got the surge tank mounted, and although it's kinda ugly, it'll work just fine. A coat of black plastic paint will make it look more appropriate under the hood of the '48 Diamond T.

I also got the head pipes done and installed. These are made from chunks of the stainless "Y" pipe I save from the 350 TBI motor I didn't use, and sections of the 6.0's headpipes with the 02 sensors. It'll be enough to enable the truck to start and get off the trailer at the muffler shop to have the rest of the system made up.

The fender liners I'll mount behind the Auburn Speedster rear fenders, to protect the open tubing of the box frame from getting packed full of road debris and rusting out.

Feels REALLY good to get this stuff behind me. Now, the next step will be to fill it with fluids and see if it'll start!

I'm making slow headway on the Diamond T. I don't know how I ever got all these other projects done. At this rate, I may be too old to drive before I finish it! Here's a link to my blog with an update, and some photos of the offending oil cooler, radiator mounting, and trans cooler lines. Seemed so simple when I started...

OK, so I've mulled this all over, and car shows don't neccessarily suck. Here's why:

Remember my enthusiasm, and light mood talking about getting ready to haul the '36 to Detroit for the Autorama? Once again, fate bites me on the behind, and reminded me that anything that can go wrong, will. The story DOES have a happy ending, but it had a hairy start. To see what happened, follow the link here...
