Is Russ going to sneak a Martin manifold on it. Tommy probably wouldn't notice.

They were Ivo's trademark.

Idj, you might not know it but I read all your posts and many others here, I learn stuff from you guys , even though you wouldn't know it, you, jl, pugsy and others teach me stuff and inspire me to do more. I just don't always comment.
Love your guys work, you are all very talented.

...AND yet another guy can come along and knock out a couple days' worth of floor replacement on the Biscayne or perhaps fix spun body mount nuts and bolt it to the frame (I'd like that)... because thats how much extra time off I am tagging onto this four day weekend. Hells yes, I am ridiculously overdue. Looking to push my trend towards friendliness and fade the grumpy times. I'll be catching up around the house but y'all take lots of rod pics at the shows next few days.
If you have read all that wordy stuff above, you're a forum friend of mine. For your sake, guys I am gonna do a thread to keep me from pic hogging this one so much. It don't seem fair, y'know? I truly enjoy hearing about the events in your days, sharing ups and downs, etc, and feel like the flow of that is important here. So I'll switch posting strategies and you can see more groovy project details and be free to talk good or bad but just be friendly. Plenty to share and I'll just post job stuff there. Sound OK?
Here is one of the boss' rides, its for sale but stock ride height, control arms, and rear drums weren't helping. Added drop spindles and I think he is putting a stock horseshoe shifter and console where theres a Lokar and simple fabbed console now. This right quarter is the one where I cut out a section above the wheel then patched it and the wheelhouse and reused the skin section. It got blocked with a 3'+ piece of PVC pipe so you'd never know. Thats my parting shot of at-work junk on the daily thread. Look for a new thread of streaming projects. Thanks!

Again, not me, I'm not doing crap unless you want to hear about the Chevy Volt, Ford Transit 150, Audi A3...etc... that I am working on at work.
But how about a few tease shots of the Tommy Ivo dragster my brother is involved with. I am not kidding you, this thing is so sensual I feel dirty looking at it with my wife in the room.

Good work and thanks for posting.

I got the patches to fit OK with a few screws and marked my edge with 60 Chevy Orange (?). Then made this part in about a dozen five minuteses. Have not trimmed the rusted lip away yet, but this is screwed to it and fits tight. I may extend this a little in the center where the pitting goes higher. The patches fit the old lip nicely so I should have a sportin' chance at pulling off this part of the job.

Spent this morning doing a couple Chevelle things. Back on the Biscuit now... I will wait to make that long cut until theres nothing else but that to do. It is tempting to flange there but naaawwww, not my style brother. I may use some temporary tabs. These adventurous repairs are the ones I like best.
Pepsi is the best cola but I gave it up a few years back. I'd rather be able to chew! I was thinking I would get both quarters ready to weld, but the body became too flexy for my liking when I cut the qtr. I'll opt to tread lightly and do one at a time instead.

If the TX valve is screwed, so am I.
The whole internal unit would need to come out.
Don't even think I can tap it.

I would re-attach the supply tank and see if the compressor is actually running. I've had cases where the supply pressure was too low to get past the limit switches and run the comp. I then hot wire the comp momentarily to see if it will start charging. Might need to shock the TX switch into opening.
Supply can/tank in a bucket of hot water raises the pressure and can help charge faster too...

I will do something really easy tonight.
Oil change, or can I screw that up too?...ha....
I bought a can of dye for the a/c and an installation hose.
Eventually, I will figure out the a/c issue.
