I'm testing some camera brackets for action cams. A friend works for Bracketron, and gave me several window, rollbar, and rare earth magnetic brackets to try. So I'm going to be taking videos from inside and out side the car when I make passes, so they'll have them for their use in advertising. Once I'm back home I'll upload them to youtube and post the links here.

Front bumper is at Airline Plating being chromed and then I'm gonna stop $$$$$$ for a while.





Holy cow! That's a beauty, and I love white cars too! They just look so clean and elegant! Don't see many old Fairlanes so clean and tidy! very nice!

1971BB427 I hooked up the tow bar today, and ran around the neighborhood. Once I felt it was working well, I did 5-6 miles on the freeway, and it worked great! It's very hard to tell the car is even back there, except when you begin to slow down. Tracks beautifully, and no strange shimmy, or movement, like I get with a car and car trailer.
After I got home I dug out my wrinkle walls and drilled and screwed the beads to the rims inside and out. Then did a quick check on the engine, as I've had a low speed miss recently. Not sure how it happened, or why it wasn't worse. but found #4 plug wire was nearly broken in two inside the heat sleeve when I pulled it off the plug! I slid the sleeve back, and maybe 1/3 of the insulation was holding it together. The MDS box must have been jumping the gap, and firing at higher rpm's. Replaced it with a spare used plug wire, and will order a better set of wires after the drags.

1971BB427 The speakers will work better pointed up towards the rear window, and look 1000% better than those boxes! Nice job on the covering too!

wretched ratchet The P.O. of my '62 Fairlane, had some speaker boxes in the rear floor board that I moved to the package tray so my passengers didn't have to straddle them. I have hated them there ever since I put them there so I yanked the package tray out and found two nice speakers mounted in the frame work. The vinyl covering had come loose as well so I dumped the speaker boxes and decided to recover the tray and use what was in there. Not perfect but 400% better than before IMHO.











Next step is to hook the speakers up correctly and than make some sound dampener boxes to go behind them so the noise won't bother my spare tire.

That's why they're private.

I too get unsigned private messages.
I want to state for the record that it is anatomically impossible for me to do what so many have suggested I do to myself in the past. Certainly not at my age anyway.

If I were keeping the car, I may have done that but it will be someone else's problem in a couple months...

Also, the short section of pipe from the collector flange to the muffler body would have had a more severe angle to get the clearance and the outlet end of the muffler would be pointing down instead of near level. As you well know, every time we have to modify a part, it involves compromise.

John long I finished pulling the rear end out of the convertible today. The engines, transmissions, and rear end are leaving Wednesday.

It is about time to get back to work on the sheet metal.



Gonna catch me a sunset.

Good luck,& Have Fun
