after reading the newest post I don't feel too bad that I haven't done much on my car this spring. It finally stopped raining here so i took my wife out to the local ice cream shack in the coupe. i now have 65 miles on the engine and car. next car show at the Owls head transportation museum here in Maine
I was looking at my interior roof and window trim, think I'll wait until next winter when i have more time to work on inside stuff. Just got my garden mostly planted, peas and beans and coming up and the lawn needs mowing about twice a week with all the rain. I'm just going to but some miles on the car and have fun this summer.

Today, cleaned the last of the holley parts, man does the carb cleaner/dip suck.
Next up was make my 3 leg engine stand a 4 leg.. tomany close calls with the 3 legger when torque'n bolts/etc.. Still in the learning stages of welding, welding 1/4 steel to 1/8th took some getting used to..
Other than that made a list of crap to grab at the junkyard. that the crate engine didn't have, dipstick and tube, balancer bolt and pulley bolts, maybe able to use the ones off the engine in truck if I could find out if they are still standard and not metric threads..

Now that sounds like a plan.

I am blown away, blown away like the cute gal down the street came walking into my garage in a G string, like I found a wad of hundred dollar bills in the back yard, I am stunned how easy repairing the stainless wheel opening mouldings on my Gran Sport will be (got one done in minutes) with the sand paper we have available to use today. Polishing mouldings thread (click here)

Brian....did I mentioned I am stunned?

After getting more argon mix I welded up the rest of my exhaust. Late finish, so tomorrow I'll get some VHT black to paint the pipes. I am painting the ladder bars Hammerite gray, so I want everything behind them to be black for contrast.

Boothboy is right. We are off topic. Did you get any pictures of the g-string. We will accept pictures of what you think she would have looked like...or should have looked like.... or could have looked like. You get the idea.

Saturday I pulled the rear brake hose off my 68 caddy. Got the replacement hose out that didn't fit. Monday went to Oreilly's and ordered the right hose, well the picture matches the one I pulled off the car. Get paid Friday and should get the hose then and will put it on Saturday. Also plan to do some work with the various gas tank hoses that I cut too long.

fitting up a 07 porsche Cayman fiberglass aftermarket bumper. Lots of work to get this to fit right. spent 4 hours just tinkering with it to get it to fit good enough to where I know it will rest right and so tomorrow I start shaving it down in certain areas for a better fit and build up on the back side. Lot of work. and cracks I have to fix from just man handling it to fit. piece of crap.
