idrivejunk Oh yeah. just doing like on the firewall. Its Dennis the Menace treehouse style, I just gotta make it look like Bob Vila (or Pugsy) did it.

Too Many Projects YEOWZA, that is ugly. Are you going to at least cut off all the excess floor pan hanging in the wind ?

idrivejunk I was under the impression that Ultra was developed to meet a warranty requirement of some OEM. Pain't store keeps sending us plain Rage and we keep sending it back.

This week I've been on the bodyshop equivalent of latrine duty, cleaning up messes. Put a couple hours on this firewall this afternoon, working left to right, and thats as close as I'm willing to get with a camera. Never seen such rush slop. Kills me.

MARTINSR John, are you sure polyester primer wouldn't be a better way to do that?

John long Just barely got my body filler on the frame within my 7 day window. I primed it on Thursday.

It is time to knock this thing down with some 80 grit and 180 and get it primed again. It appears to me it is going to work out very nicely.


BTW, I had an almost full gallon of Rage Gold but had heard so many people bragging on the Rage Ultra, I ordered a gallon, 8/10’s anyway.

You can see in the above picture the differance in the Gold and Ultra. The interesting thing people were saying is that the Ultra does not skim and sands easier than the gold. After doing a side by side comparison on this chassis, I can attest to the fact that the Ultra works much easier in all respects than the Gold. It spreads, sands, and does not develop the skim on the suface like the Goold. It is an excellent product.

49 dollars from Amazon for the Ultra. You professionals can probably beat that but I don't belive it is much higher than the Gold.

MARTINSR What did I do today, took Bart to SF, walked miles and miles around the city, went to AT&T park for a tour, ate over and over at little places, sat in Union Square with a coffee watching the world go bye, had an awesome day with my son.

He came into town for business (lives in Idaho) and we met up and had a BLAST!

Oh yeah, and worked on a Chevy Traverse this morning before I left, there is the car thing I did.

Fasto44 It is always a good feeling when something works out. I brought my truck project home last weekend. Today I got the engine out of the truck bed and decided to do a test fit of the new T-5 transmission to the engine. I have been told by Y Block folks to expect to shorten the pilot shaft. However when I lined up the trans to the engine it slide right in with a satisfying clunk when it hit the bell housing mating surface.

Only after it was converted to a go-kart of sorts when Dad bought a 12 HP Gravely. He sold that last year. The mower / go-kart frame is now a firewood trailer for the Husky he got. When it was a mower it was green and that Clinton was one of the three engines. We called it the green monster and it sounded ferocious at full song. And there you go, all sentimental and no technical, typical IDJ style!

I tapped around on the 33 roof today with some rattle can etch over it. Better.

The cost would be light and the parts, features, and capabilities could be just like you like.

I had not considered a custom built mower. Do you have any pics of your dad's home-built rider? However, I am churning on some ideas to build/modify a mower deck to use as a trail mower type thing. We have a long ditch bank that is pretty tough to cut. Right now I'm using a bush hog on the tractor with two wheels in/two wheels out to get it done. I really do not like doing that, but only one short area is deep enough to be concerned with. Along the front of the property, the ditch there can be cut with the mower on one side, but the street side is too steep. I have a couple of old rider decks, and an older B&S 10HP engine. I'm thinking of some framework to attach it to the mower similar to a trail mower, and using a couple of small kids bicycle forks/wheels for caster wheels mounted on the deck. The framework would have to have a pivot to let the deck drop down to follow the ground level. The basic idea is there, I just have not sketched it up yet... Heck, I may even be able to use the ancient rider that is currently residing under a camper shell almost as-is... Yet another project to keep me away from the Chevelle.

MARTINSR I bought this light that I needed very badly at a "flee market" in a little town nearby famous for antiques. The WHOLE TOWN was full of garage sales and main street full of food and antiques, it was really a good time with the wife and daughter. But one of the last houses we passed had these lights that I needed very bad as mine had failed. I was planning yesterday to go to the store and buy new ones and there these were new in the box for very cheap, right on!

deadbodyman I've got a chevy motor in my Plymouth coupe. That poor Plymouth is very sad about that. I think a 426 might cheer her up though
