i always wanted a drill adapter for drilling various flange welds.. using one of the vice grip 9R pliers with a mini drill press sort of device to clamp on to my drill neck. so i can clamp on to the flange.. and squeeze something and the weld is drilled part way thru. would it work on every weld.. nope..

could it be air powered to lighten it.. could it be made with some other type of clamping device.. screws at angles thru a grooved clamp block.. its just an idea..

could it be battery powered with a remote 12 volt battery.. hint.. jump start box.. or full sized car battery.

its just a thought.

I hadn't looked at where this park is before. NICE area. We spent a week in that area, staying on Perdido Key several years ago. At the end of the peninsula there is a ferry that takes you to Dauphin Island and then a 3-4 mile long bridge that takes you back to the mainland. Cool trip. Once back on mainland, there is an arboretum of sorts called Bellingrath Gardens that was interesting. Continuing north, you end up in Mobile. We visited the WWII battleship USS Alabama, that is docked in Mobile Bay. Going around the bay and back down to Palmetto Beach, there is a really cool model train set up in Foley. From there down thru Orange Beach and Gulf Shores, it's all commercial tourist traps and swim suit shops...
If you have time and want to travel more, the Blue Angles are stationed in Pensacola and the museum is well worth the trip. Lots of aviation history and planes on display.

Thanks Mitch.... It's been a while since we went south. We're overdue.... Hopefully we'll run into rain on the way home to help wash the hauler and trailer down good....

1st time with an RV. Usually rent a condo. I think this will be a lot more fun.

Is it time to leave yet?

idrivejunk I was sawing wood from a 33 Ford today and am just amazed by that lumber. Anybody know what that stuff is? I saw repros made from ash. I need to make a couple new pieces, what would you use?

Rip VW Well as I move forward on the TCoupe I find that this project seems at times like a giant Chinese puzzle. It seems when I started on the body, all bets were off. I am reminded with each step that the whole process is like running across a field full of Jinga sticks.

This quarter panel door edge repair is a good example. Seemed like it was simple enough but then I found the bent “B” pillar. I had to fix the b pillar before I can continue on the quarter.

I fix the “B” pillar and go back to the panel and find I need to put in the lower patch panel so I can get the panel positioned correctly so I can finish the repair. Oh not so fast. In order to secure the quarter I need to finish welding in the rear section of the new sub frame because the quarter attaches to the sub frame. So now I am working on finishing the sub frame. I got the outside edges of the parts welded up and today I need to finish the welding on the inside edges of the sub frame.


Next step after welding in the sub frame, will be to go back to the quarter and install the patch and try to work out the damage the P O did to the quarter. The quarter is really dinged and stretched where the guy hammered the crap out of things.


Surprisingly to me I am really enjoying the body work. I am getting better all the time with my hammer and dolly. I have finally learned the “Soft touch” to beating on a panel. I found it FUN working the highs down and watching the lows come to me. I am by no means a body man but I am learning every day and finding out the secrets to panel beating..


The photos included show first the tool I made for working the edge of the quarter. Next picture shows the leading edge of the quarter and that I have it moved out but the P O beat this panel so much before me it is stretched and going to be fun getting it straight. Next photo shows where the quarter patch will go. The next photo shows the new sub rail tacked in place and the last photo shows the passenger sub frame outside is done.
Time to get back to work…

On top of the '68 page, the black post. Maybe it's a 300? I like post coupes just fine and that one has a great look. The 68-72 A bodies have it all. The convertible and hardtop pair of blue 69s really spike my punch bowl too.
