Worked on getting my inner wheel house repaired so I can fit and install the outer. It does not show in the picture but I have more work to do on the rear section.
I socialized with a buddy most of the afternoon so the truth is, there is only about 1 1/2 hours work today.......At least I got my 5 minutes in.

I decided it was time to figure out why I can't get the idle down low enough on my dual Holley-tunnel ram setup. Lately it seemed to get worse and worse, and even with curb idle all the way out, it still idles at 1100 rpm's. Gas mileage has also been worse than usual, so started tearing it apart to check the carbs.
Got the bug catcher scoop off, and took the air cleaners off. Got ready to remove the linkage when I noticed the choke was nearly closed on the rear carb! Manual chokes, but I never use them, as it's always started right up. I checked the set screws on the choke cable, which ties to both carbs, and both screws were tight? Not sure how the choke got 3/4 closed, but I loosened it, and set the choke open. Gremlins?
Guess I'll have to keep an eye on it, until I'm sure it stays now. At least my fast idle circuit is off now, and maybe my gas mileage will pick up a bit too! It runs a lot better, that's for sure! Put some new air cleaner elements on while it was apart.

The working part (shown upside down)
Installed and plumbed up.
Convenient shop air at last!

hoping to finally finish stripping it tommorow and get the frame and swing arm prepped for paint
glad i dedcided to tear it down now and paint it cause i found 2 lil cracks in the frame i need to weld up
frame is being sprayed black first and then blue metalflake
this is the pearl i got to go over the white plastics ( actually going to spray it over white basecoat forst and see what it looks like , prolly end up spraying it over a black basecoat )

I had to stay late tonight because one of the guys lost his car keys. He ended up finding them in a garbage can! double
Tonight at home, all I got done was to fine tune my package tray template.

If you can't get behind it (but I think you can) you could pull them with a stud welder or tack weld a small piece of metal to it and pull up on metal then carefully grind the weld off with a cut off disc and remove the piece of metal.
Here is a little "Basics of Basics" I did on the "Pogo stick" and it's use. http://autobodystore.com/forum/showt...ler-Pogo-Stick
Not saying that you would use a pogo stick on that, but the metal tabs in the "Basics" could be used. A pogo stick like way, or a slide hammer could work too with the same welded on tab. The upper edge above that weld is very strong so to lay something over it like a piece of 1x2 piece of wood a foot long or something like that could be laid up on that edge and then using a tab made from a large washer you could put a screw driver through the washer unto the wood and pull up, pulling the low spot up.
