BOBCRMAN@aol.com "It had a 250 cid inline 6. I think the 454 is a little heavier. LOL"

Used to do that back in the day. Great for drag racing. Just put a 1" rubber spring stool/spacer between the spring and A-frame to regain stock height.


The shop I work at. Bought a CVC 616 Sunnen hone at auction. Missing many essential parts.. They started adding up the costs of replacement parts and quit at five grand..

Slow day, so I fired up a mill and some flat stock and started making these parts up.. Spacers and simple stuff.. Did a couple grand re-production of "Stuff we gotta buy" ...... Boss was impressed..

The boss is still not aware of what can be made in his own shop.. But then he's an auto repair guy..

Merry Christmas guys!!

No pics but I got AMD quarter skins for both of the '66's. They are waaaaaaay better than the ones that came with the car. I'll try to get pics tomorrow.
Cool. I guess we can take your word but pictures would have been better.

Personally I like some cars on a radical rake.

So you are saying, All David has to do is kill someone and the government will get them back for him.

BTW, Don't any of you people ever sleep?

the files that were deleted ALL had file names the numbered files were not effected ,,I think some one hacked my files,

No personal photos or files ,they are in another file.
Same thing happened to me but it was my own fault I learned to download my pics onto a flash drive haven't had a problem since...same thing happened with my phone every time I broke it or dropped it in the toilet (twice) and got a new phone I had to figure out everybodys number again that's when I learned to copy to the SEM card ...Some of us always learn things the hard way...

tech69 I got the bottom piece almost ready to weld in. Still have to put some bolts thru the bottom piece to bolt down to the frame and I'd like to run the flat thru my planishing hammer to get it a little nicer this is about as much sink you get in the rear of the tank before needing to do 2-3 bottom pieces. Didn't want to go there.

My buddy with the '67 Camaro has been getting a little done on it again. He works on it when he gets a slow day in his body shop. Those are few and far between. Planning to drop in the 454 and trans this winter after all the body and paint is done. New fenders, doors, quarter panels and hood have been installed and now he's cutting in the paint on the jams etc. After the paint is on is where I come in. Applying means of motivation.

John long I particularly like the '54 210 David. Cool car. It is customized just enough to clean it up but maintain all of the class and style of the origional car.

I have been welding and grinding, grinding and welding and no, this is not a duplicate post.

Progress is good but still a long way to go.
