I did a few much different things today. I installed a new door knob assy on the back door of my house. I worked on my sister-in-law's radio bezel I got for her 1941 Philco and I made the moisture shields for the doors of the Gran Sport and built one of the door panels including replacing the "fuzzy" at the top. I also removed the top pump awaiting the rebuild kit so it won't leak anymore.

No. I don't get to ride much anymore, but the bike is still in the garage. Maybe I better get it out and see if it still runs?

I spent the day at the first fall swap meet. Found a nice straight '36 Ford truck grille for $60. Also found a number of good deals on some small parts, plus got a brand new in the box Cornwell parts washer tank for $40! It's a small one with the pump and brush setup, but I don't need to buy solvent for one of those big hummers!

I got the rim around the hood opening all welded in.
Hopefully it will stiffen up the whole front clip so I can start to metal finish without it changing shape all the time.

Installed the gas tank on my caddy finally. Would have run the motor some, but my old friends the electrical gremlins came to visit. Now I go to figure out a new wiring issue. Maybe a starter solenoid or some other wiring issue between the starter and alternator. Won't even turn over. Don't really feel like tracking it down right now as I spent my energy getting the tank mounted and hooked up. Still need to trim some fuel lines as I wanted to just hook it up and hear the motor run. Got to get more energy, but this is the most I have worked on it in a couple of months or more.

I love seeing this thing come together. The "ruler" on the fender kinda stuff is a kick. Just seeing how you are doing it is very interesting. I dabbled in fabbing stuff like that and did the truck lid on my brothers roadster and rolled rear pan but it was far from perfect before plastic filler. But I did make it from scratch. Seeing your extensive project is so cool because I kinda understand what you are doing. Can't do it, but kinda understand.

Solved an electrical ground that had been causing the left blinker light to illuminate when the head lights were turned on.

I had a lazy day today and didn't get out to the garage until I came home from dinner out. I got changed for bed and thought, I can't do this, I MUST go out to the garage for 5 minutes. I did so and got the chrome installed on the other door panel. That was it, but I am glad I got it done.

Went to the dump yesterday (excuse me "transfer station", we don't have dumps anymore. We have transfer stations where we take our trash and dump it into a concrete pit. The county scoops it up , loads it and then it's trucked god knows somewhere else. And we pay for this. Shoot me I live in Calif. We're not all nuts, just our politicians). Anyhow finished dumping trash and headed over to the recycle line to get rid of pop bottles and cardboard. Finished emptying my dump van (Dodge van . Only thing I use it for is going to the dump. Kind of a powered trash can.) and it won't start. Dead battery. Hook cables to battery and ask the next friendly face for a jump. He didn't "have time". Asked the next friendly face, a lady, and got " No I have 200,000 miles on my truck and I won't help you" After I mumbled "Just remember this the next time you need help" and was told I was rude. Probably was but didn't care. Third guy I asked said " No problem." Here's the good part. While I'm waiting for the third guy to finish emptying his truck, the first "don't have time guy comes walking back smiling and says " You won't believe this, I shut my truck off and I've got a dead battery. Can I borrow your cables?" I told him "Sorry but I'm using them right now but after I get mine started I might jump your's if I have the "time." Ain't Karma great? I did stop to help him on the way out but he had found someone else to try to get him started. Here's another good part. They couldn't get his truck started but he had someone coming with new batteries. I told him I was sorry that he couldn't get started because now "I had the time". So I left. Being a "rude person" in the back of my head I kind of hoped he had to sleep at the dump last night. Moral to this saga is, believe in Karma, help someone if you can, and always, always clean your battery cable once in a while. BB

Looked at the sprint cars today, and when I say "looked", that's as far as I got, visually looking. Changed the water pump and lower radiator hose on the wifes 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix which is the easiest water pump I have ever changed by the way.
