I like the concept and will look into it for my '38. Not many places to put a hand operated brake in there.
I tucked it up so it hangs down an inch and half under the bed so there is plenty of room to the driveshaft.

Too Many Projects I brought my latest "prize" home yesterday to start the parts swap with the one I will sell.

Didn't take long to get it back down to the frame.





We disassembled the clip on this one, as I want the inner wheel houses and the rest goes on the other car.



The clutch pedal was missing and after crawling under the dash, I discovered it had been CUT OFF. I had to replace the entire bracket/pedal mount with one I had.






I had assembled the engine/trans the night before and threw it in.





Looks a little better with the fuse block back on the firewall and the wires shoved up. The block terminals are rusty and the wiring is a butchered mess. This car will get a new AAW update kit "someday".

I went with this system because I couldn't get the old cable system to create enough stroke to activate the Jeep rotor disk e-brakes completely.

its just a thought..

i was finishing up the rear brakes on the lambo today.. the rotor turned out ugly where i hammered on it.. trying to bust it loose.. but this is not a show car.. its a daily driver. i need another inch or two of cable length to get the parking brakes cables hooked up.

MARTINSR Very cool!

No fun stuff today, I did get out to the garage to change one of the headlamps on the Rambler. A co-worker told me this morning it was out. I have to bring it to the dealer and see why the system failed to alarm me the headlamp was out!



That's a joke folks.

idrivejunk Tech69, last time I got on a board it cost me a lot of skin. 18 stitches on face, plastic surgery and a tooth but I learned my lesson. You da man but I'll pass! Seems like Street Rodder was looking at something of ours too, maybe it was the one below.

Wayne, man I bet that looks GOOD, don't it? That freshly machined rotor not costing arm nor leg... you are also da man. You always win but those pesky cars never seem to learn that.

Heres one finished, that I have been dying to get good pics of. I will post some more someplace here, not sure just where. Probably journal I guess.

73 Firebird on RS full frame with Mast LS7 / T56 and IRS. Shaker is functional, body is modified everywhere you look but not so you'd pick right up on it. I did a small percentage of the work, some metal fitting and finishing plus some assembly, paint help, and what-not. Its four feet tall.

tech69 blocked on the 69 Camaro. Boss got back. No trophies for the 32 Roadster but it looks like it's getting plenty of love in Street Rodder and will appear in a later issue as well.

Boss brought us back shirts as well. Pretty cool of him.

tech69 always nice when you can jump on your board after years being off of it and still be able to look decent on the board.
