Have you seen these?





Thanks so much to my dad for going and grabbing the old 8mm and capturing these moments.

You are indeed fortunate. My Dad thought I would never amount to a tinkers damn because i loved anything with an engine on it.

Well I guess I showed him....or not

He never discouraged me at all. I certainly could have done better financially but I sure have loved working every day in this industry.

Who was it that said, "If you love what you do, you will never have to work a day in your life"? The guys who cant wait to go to work in the morning are the lucky ones. I don't know that I ever loved my job that much but I was always very thankful for it. I knew I was better off than I deserved.

I also mocked up some side trim on the truck, just to get a visual of how it would look. I am still 'on the fence" as to if I want the trim at all.

Comments?



I personally like the short spear look vs. the long stock spear.

For what it is worth, I prefer the clean look without the side trim.

Well, I got out there, dug the propane heater out of the shed and fired it up in the garage and got one side of the rear brakes done. I dropped the drums off at the machine shop for turning, hopefully there is enough there to do it, it didn't look very good.

I installed a new master and proportioning valve and rear wheel cylinders and shoes. The front had been done a short time before I parked the car and the pads have a ton of meat on them with rotors perfect so I have decided that it would be serious overkill to do them. But tonight I pulled out the left wheel cyl and it was leaking, hmm, I thought that was overkill too. Now it has me wondering. But anyway, my big thing is the proportioning valve, I am dying to see if the brakes had a better pedal than before. Wondering if I need to go with the vacuum tank or pump.

I got the other rear brakes done last night, I am finished and ready to bleed. I'll get my son out there tonight hopefully, it's darn cold out there and will be pretty hard but we will see.

Cold, he says, lol!

Brian, the Midwest is an icebox right now with subzero temps daily. I'd gladly take your definition of cold over mine any day!

Keep up the great work!

LOL, I know I know, it's all relative. I will need to change the bottle on my propane heater, I ran out last night.

I finished buffing my cowl today and am blocking down my doors. The jury is still out as to whether or not I am going to have to strip the doorsBut I am pleased with the cowl.

BTW, I was in Miami when it got down 39 degrees. I have never been so cold in all my life. It felt just like -5 in Chicago with that wind coming in off the ocean.

Yeah isn't that funny how different it can be with the wind or a chill factor. I have to admit, this area is pretty nice for weather. But holy crap, Hawaii, now THAT is wild, 75 degrees 24 hours a day every day.

Yeah, but until they build that bridge to the main land I would just as soon tough it out here.
