I am so jealous! Damn you have it so good living like out in the country, I miss this town when it looked like that.

All I got done today (but I feel good about it) was getting my tire back on the trailer and put it back where it belongs. But I also got some cleaning done in the back yard uncovering the frame for my truck and moving some things around to get ready to get the cab out of the "wrecking yard" and into the garage.

Started running brake lines. Master is on outside of frame rails and had to run brake lines tight, under master and frame and mount prop valve and residual valves on the inside of frame rail. Because of body mount location. Will need to fab a shield to protect exposed under frame brake lines. Enclosed brake lines in spring protector. Need more 3/16 fittings, lost the 3/16" double flare adapter thing..
That should really flow some fuel!

did more blocking on the 55 Chevy I'm working on. This should be the straightest car we've done together and don't think any trained eye will find flaws in it. I knew once we got the idiot out of here we could get back to working as a team. Soon as he left I got squawking on putting 3 coats of primer on for the first round of priming and it has made the most difference, especially on hoods and decklids. The next order of business is making sure only the body guys block on the hoods and decks. Just makes sense cause there will usually be a swallow or two on the first round of primer and they are very hard to detect, especially if it's someone else's work. Show car work isn't easy by any stretch.

it is pretty nice out here that was on my friends farm thats about 1.5 miles from the center of town


i grew up in jersey near nyc when i was younger i thought it was great, now that im older and got away i dont understand why anyone would want to live in or near a big city anymore

anyways i got the transmission in the iroc sorted out today, my replacement shifter cable is garbage and wont hold adjustment, need to get an oem one out of a junkyard. for now i may just tack the linkage onto the adjustment arm so it cant slide around

other then that i had a pretty decent leak on the cooler line that caused me to be 2qt's low on fluid so between the 2 issues its no surprise the thing didnt want to shift for me yesterday.

waiting on a friend to get out of work so i can pick up the camaro drive it home and then have him bring me back to pick up my truck.

ill be sure to grab some video on the drive home as i plan to finish off the set of tires on the rear of the car on the way home since i have a brand new set of rims and tires to put on the car

Yes, trying to avoid any sharp 90 degree type turns and most of the fittings are high flow rated.. A kind of paranoia I suffer from the old days. When trying to get two 750's on a t-ram to flow with a 3/8 fuel line and hardware store fittings..

Getting down to the last of the corn in a 3 million bushel building. I think we will have it empty in a couple of more days.
