tech69 this is some drought :roll eyes:

on my way to work



the 4 runner job is done. Near total so the times are skimmed to 31 hours. Should have been more but you win some and you lose some.

It will definitely be cool in either one.

If I had a 409, I would like to put it in my 58 Impala convertible except I don't have a 58 Impala convertible.

It was some 20 of 22 ga but it gave me a good idea of how the roller and tool work. I still need to look into my garage door motor power assist I am going to put on but that is less of a priority now.

Here it is still a work in progress.
get rid of the crank and tensioner bolt and you're all good.

MARTINSR Today I got out to the garage for a little work on the rad grille and front fender of the Crosley. I can't believe how awesome this worked tapping the holes and screwing the screws in to weld. Geeez

I got it all ready to weld and then marked the front fender as my brother had marked a photo. I took a bunch of photos and sent them to him to see if it's good to go like this.

You know what's real sad, my program for the show I went to saturday with Steve and Nick has a photo of the bike saying it's in the show.

Rip VW Thanks John,

I have some motorcycle parts and pieces and I think I may have something in my scrap. I also have a bicycle that is trashed so I will look at the large sprocket on it also..

I am going to build this on the frugal side. I already have my chain drive opener so a pedal an sprocket and a chain is all I need to finish it. Speaking of finishing it I better get busy.. Thanks again for the info John I appreciate it.
