I have to do the same thing to the '53. How about some pics and maybe a little more information on how you did it?

Are you using a mechanical or hydraulic clutch?

Rumor had it that a '67 GTO was hiding in my shop, so I went to look for it today. I had gotten disgusted with it last May and walked away. It has been collecting junk ever since...





One of the things that keeps tripping me up is not knowing where to put stuff that is laying around. I have worn out perfectly good parts moving them around the shop for years because they are in the way. I had a bunch of garage art signs laying on the pile and decided to put them up and be done with it.





After I got the signs up, I started digging down thru the mess and guess what......I find 4 more !! I had stuff in that mess I didn't remember...





I put 2 of them up too but didn't take more pics. How many pics do I need of wall signs ??

3 1/2 hours later, I think there is light at the end of the tunnel. If I'm going to get started on this car, I had to dig it out and what better day then Jan 1...

Goody, Goody, more builds. Don't forget the pictures!

Now, if we can just get Mike back on the Plymouth!

On a serious note, I have reached the point that before I buy anything I debate with myself whether or not I am willing to store it for the limited amount I will use it. Space alone has made me walk away from some really good deals.

Very, very nice Pugsy. I am so glad you have found a little time to work on it.

I ended up spending a number of hours on the bracket to mount my hand gun safe to my bed. It came out real nice I think, I am very happy with it. It bolts up tight with hidden bolts so it can't be removed. I didn't get to finish it all the way because my hardware store was closed. I need some special bolts and didn't want to tap the threads until I had the bolts in my hand.

Tomorrow hopefully I can get it finished up and ready for paint.

Brian

putting up the signs sounds like a new years resolution to me. Let's see a pic of that corner in a couple months. The signs look cool, btw.

Great idea Brian. You should patent that idea. Beds made with a handgun safe already attached.

What did I work on today?

A management and leadership manual for a client.

It is actually easy - all I have to do is look at how my last employer managed staff and recommend the opposite!

Why am I doing this? It will pay for the bodywork & paint on my "Henway" project!
