Speaking of the lake in Alabama there used to be a rod run at Guntersville Lake that was really good. Oh for the good old days........

talk about right under my nose. To make matters worse I think I saw the same one on EBAY for $250! No handle with a scratch in the same area. It would have been much better if I didn't realize all this after the fact. If I wouldn't have known it wouldn't have been a couldof shouldof.

I finally got out to the garage late afternoon and got the gauges in, after it overheated the last time I drove it I had to have them.



After getting them in I took her for a nice little drive over to my friends house and let him drive it, we do this when ever we get a new car or one on the road.

Still a couple of bugs here and there with lights and the horns but all is good. I got the VP switch in where it was under the dash so I can change the stall speed at will.

I would agree with DBM as far as priorities go. Also, you can do a lot of shaping with an inexpensive planishing hammer. If you can afford a deeper throated shrinker it is good. The English Wheel, Planishing hammer, And shot bag will all stretch the metal but shrinking is a real challenge. If you over stretch a panel, the only way to shrink it is to raise the rest of the panel to "lower" the high spot. Shrinking is always the big challenge without a power hammer and who of us can afford that.

Spark plugs and a little timing adjustment. Got rid of that stupid occasional misfire it had. Can't wait for the ls swap, i hate messing with carbs and timing on a daily car.

I can't go back to carbs either, now that I've had a taste of injection.

Guess I'm just to old to change to injection. I still love carbed engines, even though everything I hear about modern injection sounds so good. Carbs just look bettter, and I know how to tune them, so I'm staying with them.

Spent Sat. cleaning up the tunnel ram, and black valve covers for the Falcon gasser project. Then took trunk and door locks out and had keys made for them. Previous owner lost the keys after storing the car for 23 years.
Then in the afternoon I started cleaning the Austin gasser for the upcoming roadster show in Portland.
Haven't decided if I'll leave these as stripped, or have them polished out?

Tunnel ram was painted, and appears sanded under the paint, so I'll have to sandblast or polish it to get it looking better.

I wonder if you could bead blast that manifold and leave it bare aluminum? If it were a real fine bead so it doesn't leave too much texture to catch crud, just wondering.

Sure dig the tunnel ram look.
