Welded up the new motor mounts today.

I was walking out of the garage when it hit me to throw another 5 minutes into it.

I got one finished up in about 15 minutes and took a pic.

Great job ! I assume everything that you make is done with the same painstaking precision. Way to go.

Checked with the speed shop today and it seems we have the rear disc problem cured. I should be able to get the completed rear assy next weekend. I was wanting it pretty bad, just so that I could get it in and check out the new "look" of the 4" channel up front. Just being vain! LOL, I decided I didn't like the front trans tunnel brace so I reworked it to make a smoother transition. Spent quite a bit of time on getting the tunnel cutout on the rear center piece of floor just right, (my son, "Low n 51ow" thinks I'm a bit anal about such things!). Gotta refrain from installing any of these pieces until I get the brakes & fuel sys. installed. Standing inside of those rails by the back will sure be easier than laying under that sucker!

I couldn't get out there either but damn it I am going to do my best to get that five minutes in! I got to the hardware store (AGAIN) to pickup something to make my park lamp gaskets. I have to tell you guys, I would cut a car in half and weld a new half on without batting an eye, but these gaskets kicked my butt! I searched and searched and searched and tried different things (the mouse pad was too thin) and ended up getting some rubber gasket material and doubling it for the job. Geeeeez, finally the lights on in.
I also got my original Reynolds Buick license plate frame back on. http://reynoldsbuickracing.com/cars_67_68.htm

So yes, I got something done. It wasn't very much but as I was walking back into the house a bit down because I didn't get all I wanted to done today on my only day available. Then it hit me, I got more done on the car than I did the entire years of 2010 and 2011! I feel better, the car is getting done!

What's even worse, that salt is embedded in the road surface and every time it rains, more brine 24/7/365

But you get to run the Salt Flats sans ever having to leave home!

Actually, I grew up in a place where roads got salted a lot, so I know (and feel) your pain

Thanks.

I can get precision on my fabricated stuff, but the sheet metal shaping is kicking my butt.

I also did a bit more hood mockup yesterday.

I finished up replacing a leaky O-ring in my LeMans TH350 trans. It's nice to no longer have trans fluid leaking on my garage floor.

Still working on the brake light\turn signal bezel repair.

This is one of the things that got me so discouraged with my Gran Sport. The last thing I had done on the car was pulling the engine and trans to have the transmission rebuilt. I put it back in and filled the trans with fluid and the next day there was a big puddle under the car! That is when I literally gave up, I was so ticked I couldn't see straight. The other day when talking to by brother he convinced me to just get the car done and tow it up to his place and he would take care of it. I just floors me that I can't fire this engine up and take for a drive. But I will keep bolting on parts.

Got my block clearenced for the rod bolts.
Still irritated eagle doesn't give you clue that these rods could have clearance issues even with a stock stroke.
After solving that problem, I found the rod bearings won't clear the large radius in the rod journals.
Now I have to clearance the bearings too.
Oh well,
It looks pretty though.

Have a great day guys.

Ed

Cut, split & stacked a cord of wood for next winter. Next door neighbor took down 10 Douglas Firs in his back yard, and I have been converting them from 150 foot lengths into 18 inch lengths, running them through my home-built log splitter and getting them under cover. Until both my chainsaws crapped out!

I'm guessing that there are at least 10 cords of wood there, but there will now be a brief delay on THAT project......
