Thanks adantessr, sometimes I'm just too close to it to think about this stuff! Your pic sent me in the right direction. Today I finally finished the tunnel sections. I did three different cone shapes and although I had to "modify" the curvature of the smaller to get a smooth transition, I think they will be OK. Spent about the last two hrs just cleaning and getting some room so I can roll around under this thing doing the brake, fuel and tranny lines this next week. At least I now have all the floor panels ready to go it when I'm done with the mechanicals. Thanks to all for the help & support on th floor pan stuff. Bob

Looks good. I will need to mine similar to yours to retain as much interior space as possible.

Thanks 123pugsy. With the practice you're getting on your hood, etc. The floor pan should be a piece of cake after that!

Looking good Kruzer!! Making good progress, even if you are a bit "picky" about the fitting of everything!! I know where I got it from Glad they found something to work on the rear. As far as what I did today, researched new door seals and window felts for the 51. Man, keeping the weather out is expensive!!!

After a pretty good weekend of accomplishing something meaningful on the car, tonight all I did was lay under it and measure and plan. Brake, fuel & trans cooler lines are next! Didn't bother me that I didn't really DO anything, I got some measurements and an idea or three for routing the lines. Then got inspired and checked out the possibility of low mounting the alt (see new thread)! Deadbodyman, just keep going out there and checking it out. Something will click and you'll pick up a tool and "off to the races" again. Bob

Its been a while since I rebuilt an AFB. Forgot how simple they are. This one is going on the Polara in place of the identical one that I just took off. Gee.... a matching pair of AFB's. Bet they'll fit perfectly on a 440 with a Max Wedge cross ram. Let me make a note of that.....

well,yes and no.It takes a lot of thinking and building in your head and after you've figured everything out and do the work you run into something unexpected down the road,like this...The last thing I did was widen the rear fender 2" Now the two tail lights dont look quite right to me I think I need three which involves going back and cutting welding but the fender seem where the welting would go is right there and will have to be moved about 1" into the fender...since I decided I wanted to weld the rear fenders on so they're seamless it shouldnt be THAT big of a deal but cutting into something and reworking something you already did that took a long time is a little tough...it would have been fine if I didnt have to widen the fenders...so anyways ,there you go, I'm going backwards
for now but when I get this part done it should be a leap forward...

Then too if you want/need to make jet or rod changes, Edelbrock Performer pieces work nicely and are very available inexpensively.

What did I work on yesterday ???? ........... updating a bathroom with new sink, tile counter top and back splash, and fresh paint while waiting for parts so can get my truck rolling again

I was kinda teasing
but, I do built and work most things out in my head, long before i do them
so then I have probably spent 10-12 hrs the last 3 days working on/thinking about my car
nothing else to do when you are stuck in a truck for all day
