First, I replaced a hydraulic hose for the bed lift that was leaking. Now the other hose is leaking too...
I needed to get it in the shop for brakes, but there was no room, so I used the bed for what it was made for...I pulled the Chevelle chassis up on it so I could back the truck in...
The right wheel cylinder was completely blown and had drenched the brakes. Looks like the wheel seal was starting to leak too, so I get to replace that as well. Everything looks original in there, so maybe the 64k on the odometer is accurate.
How the heck is someone supposed to get at the brake line ferrel and cylinder bolts ???? I figured out a way, but it took the 3/4 impact to get those bolts broke loose.
Ready for clean up and re-assembly.

a couple put togethers. One was real hot cause we were paying for a rental car. Had the new door about all together when the painter wanted to put the handle on the rear door so he can buff it and go home early. Ended up dropping the latch to get the handle on while the rod was attached. Yanked it right out of the clip on the actuator and while sliding on the latch and bolting it down the child safety lock must have tripped, which often happens, but then he closed the door.
First was the bezel to where the inner handle is, then he brought out a full on pry bar and then decided to take out the hinge bolts. After about 5 minutes the old man comes with his chest out. "Don't touch anything". Then they left and I got it off in 5 minutes. It's an old trick, Just use a cotter like tool but with a longer reach after the curve, put a bunch of tape on the end to protect the paint but also apply some drag, and drag the darn tool up. You got the other door to tell you exactly where it is. That was my 5 minutes of fame for the day. The rest of the day I was yelling at the Volvo.

Finally talked to my fellow bodyman today, he's at home with broke leg but comfy and bored. Fill-in guy at work is capable and hungry to learn. Those are good things. Lost another uncle yesterdaym that makes 3 this year. So much for the drama report. Heres what I worked on today. Study hard

Overheard on a PA......
In the inadvertent event of a water landing.......

The EZ Grind wire is good but pricey. I have had zero issues with welds cracking with it but to be honest, That has never been a big issue for me anyway. Mostly, I just think it planishes a little easier. I will buy it again.

I have this little area to go. Then on to making the front fender mounts. I know, it's not very exciting to read about either, huh? QUOTE]
I mainly look at the pictures anyway. Same with my girly magazines.
So How do you like that EZ grind wire John?

|tech69||did a great job getting a 17.5 hr job off to paint for the first half of the day but The second half was putting together a Volvo and those cars are terrible if they catch you off guard, and it caught me off guard. So overly designed it's annoying. Can't wait til pay day so I can get more tools and make my lever puller. Should be getting a push cart and modify it for a bondo cart. Pretty soon I'll need a bigger tool box for work.|
