I got one headlight plate almost ready to weld. In the pic, its just sitting in place on its own, so its very close.

Super job Pugs. I look forward to each of your updates. Do you hang around any of the metal meet type forums? Is there one you prefer?

Thanks John.

I hang around Allmetalshaping.com.

I see a wheel in your pics. Are you a member of one of the sites?

I signed up for Metalmeet.com a long time ago but have not frequented it in months and months. It seemed there was quite a bit of turmoil and fragil egos. I enjoy the metal working but limit it pretty much to doing what I have to do get a rusty panel repaire/replaced. I will never attempt to do the kind of work you are doing. This is about the limit to what I do.



The panels were so rough I wheeled new ones.

Old inner deck lid

Biginning of new deck lid

Completed deck lid

Really nice job on the deck lid.

Had some good luck out in the garage this morning.

The jig helped to tack the new plate and only one "Frankenstein" cut was required.

I love what you are doing there Pugsy, that's a garage I would love to stop by and check out.

I ran out to the garage this morning before taking off for work to check my pump/motor and not a single sign of leakage! WHOO HOOO, two days and no leaks, I think it may actually be fixed. Tonight I am going to check the rear brakes over, on my way to getting it fired up and on the road.

Thanks Brian.

Hope the leak is solved. Have you ran the motor yet?

You talking top motor or the fire breathing 401? Yes to both, I run the top motor a number of times during my leak testing. The 401 yes I fired that up a while ago, all seems fine. The only real problem is it appears the rebuilt trans is leaking (rebuilt 10 years ago! ) and I am not sure how that will go. As I remember it looked like it was leaking from EVERYWHERE, kinda like my top pump! Great, but I won't be doing what I did with this top, I will go right to the tranny shop and have them fix it, warranty great, but if I have to pay for it, so be it.

The top motor and pump of coarse. Good to hear its not leaking................yet. Oops, sorry, that's my kind of luck.

Hopefully, some of your tranny seals stop leaking after you run it a bit. If its leaking as many places as you say, they'll have to pull it to fix em all.

Not thinking that modern heater cores are made from aluminum instead of brass, I cleaned the core on my 98 C-1500 today with muriatic acid . . No wonder there was so much smoke and heat coming out of the hoses. It appears I melted down the core. . Tomorrow I replace the heater core.
