05-09-2010 07:36 AM 4th Show--cold and windy
Went to another local car show about an hour away. Good group from a local car club, about 50-60 cars, lots of resto and customs but only a few street rods. It was really cool and windy all day but at least it didn't rain. Had fun visiting with friends, making plans for where to go next, and driving the hot rod.

05-02-2010 09:51 AM 3rd Show and rain
Like a lot of the country we've had a bunch of rain in the last weeks. I wasn't sure about Saturday but chanced it anyway and went to another local show. Picked up my friend Bill and drove over to LakeLand College for Big Al's show. Good turn out for the very cloudy weather and it didn't start to rain until the awards were over. The fix on my turn signal worked. Now all I need to do is secure the wiring better and get back on pre-paint. And remember to anticipate rain and put on the wiper blade.

04-23-2010 09:50 AM Grill Find
I had some time off from my farm flunky job and was able to get some work done on the grill section picked up at last weekend's swap meet. It turns out under the blue green paint the chrome was pretty fair. I cut off the top bar which is what I had been using from the grill that came with my original cab buy. The new one was cleaned up with a wire brush on an angle grinder and some dings were pecked out a best as I could. After some trial fitting adjustments the bottom bar was cut away from the grill section and cleaned the same way. This bar will not clear the tube grill so will need to be trimmed allowing it go back against the tubes and shimmed to raise the back side to align with hood etc.. The first pic has my old powder coated grill bar on top, the second is a better shot of the bottom bar. I tried on the newer bar and put a red tape stripe where the original would have had paint. Now to decide which bar to run, paint will be added to the larger bar in the stock stamping.

04-17-2010 02:25 PM swap meet trip
A friend and I took the hot rod to a swap meet at Altamont, IL. Good trip, lots of venders and lookers, and I scored a better top original grill section for $15. I may try to use this instead of the one on the top of my fabbed grill. There was a small car show as well although we didn't enter, just looked for bargains. The model A belongs to the good guy that cut the glass for my rod. After some visiting and looking we split for lunch and headed home. Still have that intermittant turn signal problem but couldn't find a vender with LEDs. Guess it's back to Speedway. Oh well great day for a drive.

04-13-2010 06:01 PM on the road again
I managed to get all of the things on the list done. Went to a Friday evening cruise-in put on by an area club. Didn't count but must have been 20-30 cars there, cool jacket weather and first of the season. So I was told a pretty good turn out. Got to visiting and didn't get good pictures before the light went, but took some and played with contrast, etc.. Still have issues with the RF turn/park light so am going to a swap meet next Saturday and will look for LED replacement.
