Just goofed off yesterday! We had our monthly get together at the local eatery, and weather was great, so took the Austin for it's first real run. Here's a video a friend took of a short ride after breakfast. Kinda cold blooded, so it was a bit fussy:

Well, I sat out there for a half an hour detailing my dash knobs. But after that, I started on the restoration of a table my wife found in her mom's house. It's a cute little childrens table that I am cleaning up for my new little grand daughter who will be 1 this May. Did I mention she is the cutest grand daughter in the whole world? The photo of her was when she was five months old.

Installed my billet aluminum plate holder and plate light and third brake light, I made a rolled panel for the back of the coupe and made a inset for the plate holder. used some 1/4" alum flat stock attached to the panel. took longer than i thought but everything on this car does. sc

Thanks Streetkruzer and 35WINDOW! I didn't realise how much the little car makes me smile until I saw the video too!

Back on it again today. Forgot how messy the stock TH350 pan can be when you change tranny fluid! I'll never understand they dropped the plug to save a few nickles!
I didn't put the pan back on afterr changing filter and fluid, as I've had a new chrome pan with a plug for almost a year, and it finally went on.
After the tranny I removed my old Studey brakelight from the rear and plugged the holes, then wired in a new LED so it gets people's attention when I hit the brakes. The little lights in the bumper just weren't enough on a sunny day.

I flew down to Orlando early Monday morning to get a 1998 C-1500 that I bought off of e-bay for $3450.oo Spent Monday with my daughter and my two week old granddaughter # 8. Drove home to Charleston, WV yesterday. Got a 6:00 AM start and only stopped four times, So I was home a little before 8:00 PM. 842 miles. Truck was great on the trip. About 42 psi oil pressure and ran cool all the way. Good tires also.

Has anyone drilled out the pan and inserted a plug, even one with a magnet to draw out the filings?

The way that I have done it, is to remove the pan and drill it and braze a 1/2" UNF nut that is shortened to about 4 threads to the inside. You can pick up the drain plug at Lowe's. I guess that you could braze the nut to the outside, if you desire. Just not enough treads in that stamped steel to suit me. Just look at the way an engine oil pan drain plug is set up.

How much does an intake job go for where you are? That job would be give or take $700, here.


BTW, LOVING the Bonnie!!!
Its been a few days since I got the Yukon back,, but your 700$ estimate hit it dead on 721$ but that also included a oil&filter change, new serpentine belt, and new coolant,
Thanks for the compliment on the bonnie,, its getting there
