MARTINSR Well, I got out in the garage and got a little reacquainted with the cab. I thought I had the doors fitting when I last worked on it but found that I needed to do some adjustment to both doors to start this next step of doing the frame on the drivers door.

It felt good to do something, though not much, but something!

Come to think about it. She is pretty special after all

LOL

You know what's funny my first wife wanted me to change, she wanted another man that looked like me I guess. But I remember telling her in our first home, we were married a year or so and the back yard had a couple of Model A bodies in it, with the garage full of my truck. I told her, this is me, this is what I will be like forever. When I am 50, I'll have old cars in the back yard........yep, so true so true.

My forever wife is too good to me. I think if I wanted to go buy a $100K Duece she would let me borrow against the house for it. But I guess she knows I'm "thrifty" and my car stuff is cheaper than the bar where I could be.

I got it running and driving but it was still far from a driver. I was tired of looking at it, working on it and spending money on it so it went away....I got a really solid '66 Malibu with some of the cash...

That 66 is looking good ,it will be a head turner,that will draw people to actually stop and look ,not just look as they walk by.

That's called a "floor", and I also had a couple of tools used for cleaning it, they are called a "Broom". I was able to use the broom to gather up all the dirt and metal filings and stuff off the floor with them, using a "dust pan".

Dust pan



Broom



I also found one of these in out there too, not sure of it's use, you would have to have really short legs to use it.

That would be the rare appearance of a shop floor. The only reason I know that is because I spent a few hours yesterday looking for mine... I happily discovered it goes all the way to the pallet racking and shelving. Not sure what's under them, as I haven't seen that in 10 years...

I have a friend's '72 Chevelle coming in next week for a complete drivetrain swap along with tunnel modification and the addition of bucket seats. Should take a couple weeks...

I hope i can get the motor to work. I can ride it around my parking lot if i don't fall off and break something.
Now that looks like a fun little project
