silentpoet Not much actual work. I did bring in my new cherry picker Friday night. Then Saturday I looked a bit at the engine and intake manifold to see if I could make a lifting plate with stuff I had on hand. And just now I figured out how to do it with what I have. Or I could wait and buy one of those two ton levelers from harbor freight. Not sure which I will do.

Nice, finally getting loose ends tied up is a good feeling.

John long Took the wife shopping today. It is a shame how the daily requirements of life can interfear with your daily knap as well as shop time.

I did get the spot welds drilled out of the firewall supports and they are gone.

That's what I get for hitting the back key...

Double time would be good, I could pay for the frame straightening they did on the Malibu today...

I can't "edit" or delete it either...

Too Many Projects When I went to plan the front brake hoses, I discovered the internal stops in the R&P let the steering arms hit the sway bar links. I made stops out of angle iron and welded them on the link stand.





I then ordered a bunch of parts to get the front brakes plumbed.

Today, I worked on the body while waiting for brake parts. We bought a floor kit to replace the rusted out original and to allow more room for the 200r4 trans. I got most of it mocked in but need to cut out more of the left rocker before fitting the left floor piece.





By 3:00 I didn't feel like crawling around under it to cut out more inner rocker, so I worked on the right lower cowl panel. This is about 10 minutes from being fitted but 3:30 came and I was OUT of there... It will be waiting for me when I get back on Monday.

John long I discovered today it is possible to sharpen a Blair style spot weld cutter. I have a diamond hone and used it to sharpen each of the five tips on the cutter much like you would sharpen a wood chisel.

It seems to be doing a good job.

One more win for being frugal.

ive got a set of matching rears on order in 15x10 , still havent picked a rear tire yet
I run 15"x4" also, but American Racing Torq Thrust. I'm using the same tires, and really like them. Whenever I wear out the tires on my other car, I'm going with the taller Nexon tires on it also. It has 15x3.5 Ansen slots, and I think the same tire will fit fine.
