I may be mistaken about this, maybe it's just a lot newer or something? That kick stand is Schwinn, hmmmmmm

HOLD ON HERE! That's a different frame!

The one in the earlier pictures doesn't have a Schwinn kickstand in it! Did someone do a switcho chango with your frame at some point?

Hit the Wed. night cruise at Beaches tonight. A beautiful 75 degree evening, and only a few hundred cars showed up, vs. the 1200-1500 that usually show on a nice night. It's been slow all summer for some reason.

cut out a support on an Isuzu Trooper and pulled the apron. We just ordered a 90 degree side clamp so we don't have them yet so I had to leave a small portion of the support on the apron and still bolted into the front cross member. Then used a plate and bolt to pull in that area. This allowed it to stay straight where it needed to stay straight and un crumple where it needed to uncrumple. I'm kind of glad we didn't have the side clamp cause I probably wouldn't have tried it that way and it worked out great. The upper rail has swayed a tad and is in still though so tomorrow that will get worked out and brought back to spec...after someone converts them to inches for us on the computer.

The Chrysler 300 is getting assembled by the owner and going next door for interior. So I hope he gets the side chrome on before he pulls it out of here so I can snap more pics. I snapped some today and will put them up by Friday, in hopes I get more with the side chrome. Certain colors look good with chrome and that's one of them.

One nifty little tool

Today I finally got to spray the bottom of the 55. It took about two weeks to strip the undercoating, the grease and rust from the bottom. I sprayed the silver primer on today with an engine cleaning gun from Taiwan. I purchased it at Harbor freight for seven dollars. I have used these for years. This sprayer will blow paint about 18 inches. It's great for all the hard to reach areas, and for spraying inside rockers and anywhere else that access is difficult.

I also hit a Wed night cruise / gathering and although around here has also been a little slow this season the quality of vehicles has been great and anytime I drive the beast I have a smile from ear to ear

Got to admit my truck was looking dam good last night

As a sidebar note on bicycles; The frame on my 1962 Triumph Bonneville was brazed together. It was my first bike that I bought new and wish I could remember what I paid for it... not much in today's dollars.

We used to make Weed Burner Pipes for our fuel car and gas welded them to the flanges with steel filler rod. After a few passes we'd have to re-weld them if we were fortunate enough not to have driven over an ejected pipe or two.

Then we learned to braze the pipes to the flanges and life was better. Then Zoomies took center stage which reduced the stresses on the flanges and we had more time to drink coffee between passes.

Bought the part, did the required cursing, and got the last shoes on. It is all over except for the bleeding. Probably Saturday.

Faaaaaaaar from alone on that one. I've alsways disliked the PS pump under the alternator on GM's. I overfilled my '38 pump TWICE after I installed it. The second time was after I had to drain it to fix a leak... You'd think I would've learned the first time...

Did you also make the requisite blood sacrifice to the automotive gods? Unless you bark or scrape a knuckle and leave some of your skin & blood in the car, it will NEVER run again!

Hmmmm. Maybe that's why my hands are so scarred up. Many a blood sacrifice over the years. I have made other mechanics wince when I explain where some of the scars came from.
