I told him how we can go out in the Gran Sport with the top down and he says no, it's an automatic, it's too easy to drive.

That's the attitude I just don't see anymore.

I hired a guy yesterday, he was to come in this morning, we will train him in custom stainless sheet metal work and the ^&$&#& doesn't even show up or phone.


BTW Brian, your ugly van pic is finally gone.

Sounds like you raised him right Brian!

I did my 15 min. car thing, that turned into 3.5 hrs.! Removed my old bumper, tailights, and parachute. Swapped in the 4 new tailights I got from Vintage Impressions, and wired them up with all 4 as running lights, and the two outter as turnsignals, and two inner as brake lights.
I still need to fab up a couple nerf bars to fill the holes and match the front nerf bars.

I finally got my column wired and working, blinker lights, stop lights, flashers, but no horn yet. Now I just have to figure out how to make my speedometer work. my next project is get my snowplow out and sand some of the rust off and primer and painted. Won't be long before snow here in maine.

You gonna custom paint the snow plow? That would be cool.

Yeah, I've had several people already tell me the chute needs to stay. Gotta figure how I might install it without putting holes in the body.

Back out in the shop today to get the pushbars built for the Austin. Decided to make something a bit heavier than the small nerf bars up front, so I built them from 1"OD schedule 40 pipe. Mostly for looks, but they will help protect the new lights a bit too.


And inbetween fab work and painting the bars I put the beer cooler together too!


Altogether a good day in the garage!

Thanks John! Took a bit of work to close the ends. I welded in bolts and then ground them rounded. Should have bought some carriage head bolts and welded them in; it would have made finishing easier!
