idrivejunk Pugsy, thats GR-RRR in Pontiac speak. I am still feeling the concrete on my back from yesterdays bearing wrestling match. It is good to have the blown one back.

How about this for a grin, a first-ever cover shot for the shop I work at. Real nice article. In stores now. Thats the blue Ford I tore down and installed a bed floor in. Crew did nice on it and the mods are just right.



The 60 Chevy quarter patches don't fit half bad at the wheelhouse and where they join. The bottom flange on the front is a bit short, and the stamped edges are of course very rounded so I'll work within those.

Posted above, compressor running.
But, not really sure. I was getting frustrated and stopped.

So, today, I thought I would do something funner like change my front flex lines and rebuild the calipers without the use of my hoist.
I hate this freakin house build. Can't even use my hoist without hours of moving stuff out of the garage. So crawling around on the ground, breaking brake lines....arrgghhhhh......

John long Got back from Nashville Good-Guys.

Hoping to get a 71 Nova brake pedal tomorrow for mocking up to Precious. It's hard to be sure what you want until it's in your hand.

BTW, Put the top up. Rain-x'd the windshield. Drove 160 miles home expecting rain......Nada, zilch,...none. The car was never wet the whole weekend. Just amazing.

Then, with low pressure, the compressor comes on. What?

Since I have a jug of gas at work, I though I would run a vacuum and recharge to see how long a charge would last.
But I couldn't get it in.

Low pressure was high and high pressure was low while charging.
Compressor was running.

Souds like orfice is plugged,,you did change it didn't you,,arrow facing correct direction with flow,,??

Great perspective, Brian. Puts a whole new spin on it. I still have to get back under there and deal with some insulation that I took down to run the duct, but not today.
A few years ago I was visiting my grandparents, and I saw one of their neighbors fire up the lawnmower to go get his mail. I didn't see him get on, but I did watch him ride it to the mailbox and back to the front porch. As I sat there thinking what a lazy slouch he was, I saw him drag himself off the mower and up his steps backwards with his arms. Paralyzed from the waist down, confined to a wheelchair. Yeah, I felt like a giant A-hole.

Now I just have to break out the wood working tools again.
