Picked up my new slicks from Hurst Racing Rubber today! Got them mounted up, and then came home and chopped up my wheelwells!


Then I played with fitting my Mercedes front fender lips to the top edge to finish off the openings:

NASTY weather today!

Power was out most of the day. Ran generator. Painted the fuel tank with a couple of spray bombs and cleaned/bead blasted/checked the sending unit.

My new BOBcam CAD-CAM discs came today so I watched the basics/setups. Now I will have to finish the CNC plasma table I started during the winter.. Those programs are good but not cheap!

We are lucky here with hotrods and the laws. In the late 1990's Oregon passed hotrod law legislation that exempts many cars that fall into the hotrod classification from certain rules that daily drivers have. Since this car is licensed with permanent "special use" original year 1963 plates, the law wont bother me. At least if I'm driving sanely, and not acting like an idiot.

Looks great!! You have got the correct breather and could even have it rechromed when money permits. New stickers and you're in like flin.

Rechroming the cover would involve dipping it in a solution to disolve the existing chrome. Obviously, no decal will survive that...

Shoulda put the preformed by-pass hose on before bolting up the intake or water pump. They can be a bear to squeeze on now......not that I would have any experience with that.....

I spent more time finishing the seat mount install and painting them.

Then I turned to initial mock-up of the Vintage Air evap location. I've already cut and welded one of the brackets to clear the cowl vent drain tube and fabbed another across the front to locate that support brace away from other things. I know it's a "universal" case but not very well thought out, in my self-centered opinion... I need to look in the hose kit box to see if they include any form of bulkhead accomodation or if I need to get a bulkhead plate for all the hoses to pass thru.

I took a couple pics but will wait till I get a few more to explain my thoughts on the bracket relocations. The new blanket of snow is making it hard to get excited about hot rods right now...

Yea yhat hose can be a problem ,I bought a pre formed hose from Ecklers Corvette should go on eaiser, i normaly take a piece of 3/4 hose 4,5/8 in long,it works fairly easy if you put it in hot water first,,i was not worried about decal but underneath the lid the metal is stamped from the factory with an part # and AC Delco I don't want covered up,i can buy a repo but don't want one of those Chinese chrome jobs,,i have been rushing to try to get mine finished by July, I forgot to leave holes for my Vintage Air,

I've never had much trouble with that hose on a long water pump, but a short pump is impossible!

Remove one of the nipples, apply a tiny bit of lube to it, slip the hose on and tighten the nipple by rotating in the hose.

Another cold, wet, windy, nasty day.

Made two lifting fixtures from old square tubing. Bolt to firewall and another behind rear window. So I can remove body from frame with cherry picker.

Lifted body up about an inch on front . Found a hidden body mount bolt that will have to be removed. Wind was shaking the building and rain was making so much noise on the metal roof that I couldn't hear the radio. so I closed up early
