I went to talk to a friend of mine today and look at his 49 ford topless rat rod.the windshield is cut down so he is trying to fab a roof.I told him I needed fenders and he had a set off a 37 ford he sold cheap and through in a set of new stacks from a semi.he has so much nice old ford stuff and wants to clean house.I also talked to a young feller who has a 54 ford pick-up for $2000,it just needs assembled.he has a 56 2 door ford wagon he wants to finish. it was a great day.

I know this has nothing to do with hotrods, but this is what I have been working on for a couple of weeks. These are steel piling for floating docks, they are 93 feet long. They are 2 pieces of 46 foot black iron pipe 16 inch diameter with a 1/2 inch wall. There is a point for driving into mud/silt that is about a foot long and weights about 125 lbs. When these pile are driven there will be another 46 foot piece going on top with an h beam to tie the pile together.

I cleaned the garage. It has half a 78 Chevy worth of pieces, an entire 54 Chevy in pieces, and it's only a small 2 car garage. After cleaning it all up and arranging it and filling a garbage can full of crap, and I van full of scrap metal, I surprised the wife. I said honey come look at this. She kinda misted up a little, then got mad. I asked her why. She said at first she thought I was dying or something, and then changed her mind and knew I wanted something. So much for spring cleaning. Guess I should clean the garage more often.

Decided to clean up my fuel lines under the hood yesterday. I had a fuel block that a friend gave me, and it was tapped for one 1/4" pipe inlett, so I could tap whatever outlets I needed.
Here's what I had previously:


Here's what I did with the block, bender, and some tubing:

Should be close enough to visually not see a difference between the lines on the body and the new hood sides.
That is so friggin cool!

I like your thinking, very nice job.

I got out there in the morning and epoxy primed the floor in the Gran Sport, then spent 5 hours at a track meet in VERY cold heavy winds. I got back home and out to the garage to find that there was still some soft epoxy so I have to wait until tonight to get the seam sealer on it.

Got the floor seam sealed tonight, along with some texturing work at the mother-in-laws house. Tomorrow I hope to get another coat of epoxy primer over that sealer and I will be ready to put the carpet in. I can't wait to see that console in there!

Another "five minute night" that went 20-30. A few more pieces and wiring (added some speaker wire to the back seat in anticipation of adding a stereo.

Tonight I start the carpet!
