last week was almost exclusively working on my car after work and on the weekend. This week I haven't touched it and made it up to my daughter by taking her to the playground and letting her run across the huge field to get there. She loves running on grass. Girl has great balance and coordination and it's a joy to see her happy as ever. no amount of therapy or accupuncture can equate to that.

Did the first day of the big Portland swap meet today! Took us from 7:00am-3:30pm to do the racetrack part, and we'll go back to do the Expo tomorrow when it opens!
Good news is I found a set of ET Classic spokes in 15x9 and 15x4 to fit my Falcon, and with new tires and lug nuts all for $325! I wont use the rear 275-60-15 tires as I'm running Hurst piecrust slicks, so they'll defer more of the cost when I resell them.
Also got a pair of subframe connectors for the Falcon to help handle the 454 Chevy engine, and save me adding more framework built from scratch. My buddy bought a '39 Ford Std. coupe that's rust free, and very nice. No engine or trans, so good hotrod material!
Rained cats and dogs, but we had a great time anyway!

Back at the 2nd part of the swap meet today! Guys were actually giving good stuff away! And the things we bought were pennies on the dollar compared to new prices! I actually grabbed a box of items marked "free" and found 3 brand new boxed U joints, a chrome Chevy T stat housing, several new thermostats in boxes, some gaskets, and a bunch of new dash lamps in the box!
Picked up some good used chrome parts for my BBC for crazy cheap prices like $25 for oil pan and timing cover! A MSD distributor and 6AL box for $110!
Just insane the way things were priced. Some people asking more than new prices for used parts, and others asking pennies on the dollar!

Sounds like a great day at the swap meet. I took the day off and have just kicked back so far, I may get out to the garage and see about getting something done.

today is sanding and priming headlight buckets, that little piece that goes under the grill, and whatever end cap that's ready for primer(2 of 4), as well as stripping the decklid hinges. I figure they will be getting bumped around when putting them back on so I figure if the material isn't too thick it will be that much easier to touch up. I got a pretty decent technique with vise grips and a long screwdriver though.

Then I will bring the decklid and valiences home for final mock up and finish the left quarter and maybe spot prime it.

Cleaned up my swap meet tires and wheels to see how they fit the Falcon. Of course I knew the rears will need a wheelwell rework to fit, but that was in the plan already. Once I radius the rear it will drop a couple more inches also. The tires are going away, and Hurst cheater slicks will go on the rear wheels. 10-30-15 Hurst pie crust slickss.


This is the Mercedes front fender lip I chopped off a wrecked Benz sedan. Once I radius the rear wheelwells I'll weld this to the openng to cover a little of the tire, and finish the lip off some.

Sat an old front fender on also to see how the clearance is up there.
