06-07-2010 08:10 AM Finally! Worked on the Diamond T!
I've spent a couple of days sandblasting, cleaning, scraping and getting ready to paint the chassis of the truck. It looks great, I'm glad to have gotten some progress made. The 6.0 is also cleaned and ready for a little detailing before it gets dropped betweent the rails for good, so hopefully in a couple of weeks, I'll have something that looks less like a pile, and more like a big, brawny, one ton truck.

Read more about all this nonsense here:

Gotta brag a little about how great the wagon handles and tows with the suspension changes. It's night and day. We towed the Spartan to the Tin Can Tourist spring meet, and it was a pleasure to drive the car this time at highway speeds towing.

Click on the link to read more about it, I'm excited and happy about how well the car drives now.

05-18-2010 02:00 PM Radiator vs. Rear Axle, the fix...
Update on Fordillac, ordered two new radiators, an aluminum, two row '65 Mustang style one for the front, (supposedly capable of cooling 500 HP), and a new Dodge Neon one to replace the rear one, which, evidently serves as a poor bump stop for the rear axle!

I'm mounting the rear one in a slightly different location under the floor in the frame kick up. By changing to slim line 10" fans as opposed to the Dodge Neon originals I had, I can move the radiator enough to have no part of it over the axle.

We'll see how this works out with the new front one, we're going to Indy for the Goodguys show in June, I want it be cool running and trouble free. Ha!

Don't know what happened to the picture, but obviously this is worthless without it...

Lets try again.

05-12-2010 07:40 PM T'Bird Chop artwork.
Steven Brown from Auburn Hills MI did this concept art for us of our '59 T'Bird roadster. I've never had a rendering done of a car, it's pretty cool to see what I see in my mind. I've already got the w/s chopped, all I have to do now is adapt the Dodge Charger headlights, lower it, chop the top and section the "C" pillar, and then block it all out and paint it silver over charcole with a lime green and purple stripe. Easy, huh?
