Martin, boiling water works great on bugs, especially if they're bunched up like that, but I haven't tried it on ones that fly. Give it a try, if you dare.

I kill black widows all the time with water.

today I blocked on a 55 Chevy decklid that fell off the stand. the worse part is that it fell on the back end right on the curve in which it will only see the side of your block due to the curve, which limited the usefulness of guidecoat. So I had to block it a million times til I didn't feel anything in that area. I'm the only guy in the shop that can find this kind of stuff and the boss doesn't know a thing so due to this I often have to sneak around, just like I did when I "repo'd"
the decklid from the painter/ prepper to fix it.

Also broke down a newer model Malibu. I thought the R&I design was pretty decent other than having to feed wires thru the fender, but no biggie. The door blend R&I was awesome and like a Hyundai in which you can leave the inner door panel on to remove the handle, mirror, and belt moulding. That made up for the fender.

Tomorrow I work on the boss' Vette but I have to align the doors first to determine whether or not the front end is drooping, I think it is. Not gonna fudge the gap with glass and might be removing the front end...joy!

I also got my MasterCoat rust remover......we will see!

I've had a couple of busy days with my project.
I've decided to swap out both the cylinder heads and camshaft, as what I had was a BAD mismatch ... which made tuning nearly impossible.


Going from 781 (open chamber) heads to 063 (closed chamber) which should give about 9.0:1 compression.


From a Comp XE284H (11-250-3)
to an XE274H (11-246-3)



I've also finished reconditioning my M/T black wrinkle valve covers ... and overhauling my 30-yr-old Black & Decker 1/2 sheet sander which I used to do the relief. They won't be going on right away ... not until I get a different set of lower-profile rocker arms, or a set of spacers.

I semi finished another body mount tonight. Still needs to be ground. I will have to get the other inner rocker made so I can get the spacing right before I weld it to the channel.

Shhhhhhh. Let's not say anything about the table cloth.........

I have an old friend, a mentor for that matter, gave me my very first afterschool job at his rod shop. His wife tells the story of when he got her grandmothers lace table cloth out and did a lace paint job with it!
