Well, I didn't like the taste of grass, and as it turns out, my kids don't like eating grass either!! Imagine that..... I just need to figure out how to get a mobile shop going so I can work on mine while I am out on the road doing the working thing. Man, someone should invent that teleporter like they had on Star Trek!! Yes, working gets in the way of the fun stuff for sure........

Got the back bumper installed and the lights in the bumper wired. Everything worked, so that's good. Started painting the various trim pieces, like license plate frame in the rear. It's got one of those huge European style frames and it hinges on the trunk lid so when the trunk is open it can drop down. Pretty ratty, and I ended up coating it with bed liner after it wouldn't come out good with a fair amount of sanding.

1971BB427; I really like your ride. I mean I REALLY LIKE YOUR RIDE!!!! Great looking gasser!
Tonight I made some patterns for under the floor between the frame and the body. It's a pretty small area and I'm going to seal it as I think it would be extremely hard to keep the road crud out. Not a whole lot done visually but I took my time so it will seal good. I would love to have four day work weeks because that would mean three day weekends and then you could really sink your teeth into a project! I spend a lot of weekend time just gearing things up to get on the big projects and then you gotta quit too soon just to return the garage to normal operation again. read as (turning the other half of the shop, er, I mean garage, back over to the wife.)

Well, I solved a little problem that I put on the back burner. I had all kinds of things in my head to do with this emblem but figured out a great way. Repairing broken studs, on an emblem for example.

Well I finished up the exterior trim and wiring on my gasser project today! Got the crank open windshield installed, weatherstripping in the trunk lid, rear lights all done, plus the folding license plate frame installed and wired.
Just have to finish reinstalling the interior door panels and window trim, then fab up the wheelie bar brackets and she's ready for some spring time fun! If the weather ever cooperates!

Started on some brake lines tonight. I decided to do stainless since a bit of them will show all the time. Spent over an hour and got one whole line almost done! Man, that stainless is some tuff stuff to work with. I started with the longest line, to the T at the rear end and I had to go through a frame cross member, but I sure didn't think it would take that long! I don't have one of those commercial tubing benders, but I did spring for the pliers with the curved grooves for the lines. They actually work pretty good and I like the tight bends you can do. A lot better than trying to bend this stuff with just your thrumbs.

Yesterday my buddy & I pulled the saggy headliner out of my 92 GMC. Naturally, we broke a couple of trim pieces doing it, and didn't exactly do the molded board any favors either!

Then I went to a meeting of one the clubs I belong to.

Today - I looked outside. Cold, raining, foggy and windy, all at once. So I built a fire in the fireplace, opened a bottle of wine, turned on the stereo and started catching up on my reading...

im doing a full interior on a b-body caprice and was asked if i wanted to change the heater core for some extra change, since i had almost everything out anyways i accepted...shiiiiii.....like 5 hours trying to get that **** out. i couldnt get the hoses disconnected until after i broke out the sawzall and cut the core out from under the dash. holy crap that was a task, i still dont know what kind of tool it takes to disco those hoses but i do know what kind of car i will not be changing a heater core on again.

btw Dave, you gotta take the side panels loose first, the top center trim panel has tabs on both ends that tuck behind them...probably the broken ones you talk about.
