Had a friend bend me up some sheetmetal to fill in under the grille on my Falcon gasser project. Then I punched some holes for more cooling, and after that cut a big hole in the grille and mounted my "moon" style overflow tank.




Then I cut up one of the scrap grille bars and crimped it to the raw end cuts to tie them together:

It's been hard for me to get out there and get anything done, but I got out there today and did this. While you guys are installing slicks and blowers and what not I got my old Bermuda bell in Marge.

No Bermuda shorts but when you are driving a nerd car such as this (shhhhh, don't tell Marge) you can get away with murder!

I have been planning on putting this in the car when I had a few minutes time. I had to do it after my drive home today. You see I was at a stop light and looked over to see a little boy about 8-9 in the back of a car with the window down looking at me. He made a big smile and sort of waved at Marge. I think he may have been handicapped in some way, he was gesturing to Marge very different than you would expect. Anyway he waved at me and as his move drove off ahead of me (EVERYONE drives off ahead of me in the Rambler remember) I could see his l little hand up over his head still waving! LOL, and as they pulled into a left hand turn lane and I passed them there was his hand out the window waving. I wished I had the darn bell in there he would have gotten a kick out it.

Don't like the ahh oo gah horn, just don't get it. On a stock Model A I guess. I had never seen one of those manual ones but that is exactly how the Bermuda bell came to us, it was a manual bell under the floor boards and you hit the button like that with your foot ringing the bell.

That horn sounds like a duck call. Lame.
I had a Bermuda Bell in my '48 Ford when I was in high school. Have you priced those darned things lately? Ouch!

I bought this one about 1985 I don't remember where. But it's a real bell but it has an electro mag in it that throws a rod into the bell to ring it.

I know it's not the original of course so it's worthless I assume but it's pretty fun. I just ding dinged at one of my neighbors as I came into the street, if it's possible it's upped the smile factor of this little car.

Like that bell. Thoughts of the old days..

It snowed all night so I got started late.

Removed the last bolts that held the Stude body to the frame and Jockyed two cherry pickers front and rear of the body. UP she went. Fabbed a couple of saw horses from some old nasty 2x6 lumber. 3ft 6in high. and set the body on them. Lots of room to work under the body now.

Swap meet tomorrow

Maybe one day I will have a car with a Moon tank.
That is one heck of a statement!
