I also re-routed my plug wires on my T-bucket when I did my last engine change. Much cleaner look .

Well, long day but I had to get out there for a few minutes and cut the legs off a chair I brought home from the shop. Why on earth you ask? I need to make a transfer seat for my buddy who is confined to a wheel chair so he can get into my Gran Sport. If you didn't know I did this for him to get into the Rambler it worked but was quite crude. I was looking around at work today for some nice mandrel bent tubing or something that I could up to make this thing when I came across this chair! OMG this is going to work so good! I needed the back on it and was going to make it all from scratch, this is going to work SO GOOD! I am going to make it adjustable so it will move back or forward and up and down so I can "tune it in". He has very seriously limited muscle control and being able to move it a half inch could mean all the world.

The tubes you see on the floor are the legs I cut off and I was just under the car looking at how to do it and left them there.


I am really jazzed to get him in his car for the Goodguys. He is going to crap his pants riding in a convertible muscle car!

Brian

He is an amazing man and he deserves some help to enjoy what he loves, CARS. He is a huge car nut and he has never been in a convertible, he is going to love it.

Brian, I think I speak for several of us who really enjoyed and appreciated what you did to get your friend into the Rambler. Please keep us up to date on this project as you work it out. You are indeed a good friend to care so much.

We will be looking forward to the pictures of you guys at the Good-Guys. I just wish it was going to be the one in Nashville.

I got a new speaker out of a Chevy Avalanche today for the Gran Sport. I thought I would have to buy a repro and just haven't broke down and bought one because I am so cheap. So this Avalanche comes in with a broken bracket for the speaker (along with about $5000 in other damage) and to get the bracket you need to buy the speaker with it. I brought home the old speaking thinking I may be able to use it though it was too big. Got home and couldn't believe it when I put it on top of the original and it was exactly the same and will bolt right in! WHOOO HOOOO So i soldered the wires from the old speaker to the "new" one.
I also got a running board from a truck at work (damaged) and cut it up to make the piece that goes under the to frame to mount the seat for my friend. It's going to work like a charm.

Brian

He is such a great guy, he really deserves more than the cards that were dealt him.

Fastest oil change I've ever done. 15 minutes. I'll have to try to beat that next time.

I had a very entertaining day overall. First starting last night my old '83 rustbucket (Garbage made carefully 2500) decided to crap out on my way to pick up a sofa for the garage. So this morning I hauled the dead battery back home and gave it a charge, started straightening the frame in my '53 R130 (some knucklehead decided the crossmember behind the rear end was a great place to hook a chain around to pull stumps out with)I then realized my oxygen tank was empty. No truck to haul tank... decided to move Exploder out of garage , grabbed door opener wrong door crashes into roof of Ford. Neighbours got a good laugh. Now I have to fix door, roof, and cannot lock garage properly. Came in house to find dogs ripping stuffing out of their toys ....figure just a good time to clean up kitchen booted dogs outside -25 degrees C and they still found mud????? time to wash dogs, mop floor before wife gets home! I gotta get back to work to have a rest (thank goodness we don't have children)
