Poor Anglia, It looks so lonely, I'll bet if I were to talk to her she would jump over that 2x4 gate you have under her tire and come to my house where she would be loved.

MISSION ACOMPLISHED !!!!!
Put about 10 miles on the 48, its first shake down run. The first 2-3 miles nice N ez then the rest an ez 45 mph adjusted the shocks and air bags till it rode like a dream it went nice and straight but might have a slight bump steer issue. I'll take it down for an alignment and see for sure...after my little ride I did quite a few burnouts in the parking and put on a little smoke show. My shops on one of only two roads going to a major mall so there was plenty of traffic and lotsa thumbs up...I was feelin goooood....
..........................................then the cops showed up ........................
but parked at the other end of the lot
so I said what the heck ,its my dang parking lot and I really smoked em up ,got it sideways and everything ,then the tinted window came down and the thumb came up and off he went.
I got it all out of my system ,did my shake down ...now I can seperate the body and frame and start painting the frame and underside of the car....
first they said it would never run,then they said I'd never drive it ,then they said it'll never get painted.They almost had me convinced every time ....I guess its ok to listen to people say something cant be done just never believe them.....If you want something bad enough and work hard at it... You'll have it.....building a car is an investment in time just like saving money,A 1,000.00 might be a little hard to get but saving 20.00 a week isnt too hard ,in a year you'll have it Just like Brians 15 minutes....right now all I can say after hundreds and hundreds of hours of work is.......It was well worth it....

Oh she's loved enough, just sometimes the problem comes along where money is needed to continue feeding this nasty hot rodders habit,
So it needs some resting time, away from all the cutting. grinding, welding, that is gonna be taking place in her spot, which adds up to a little moola to spend on her,,
That 2x6 is all that kept it from rolling back out of the garage,, it tried to follow us home, went to shut the door, and it was gaining speed, if I had managed to get the door closed,, it would have bent that aluminum door up pretty good,
The 2x6 is all I could find to stop it,,

Well..if jams,Force it!..if it breaks..then it needed replacing anyways!

Now that sucks! I can relate, though not as bad, to a 16 year old it was pretty bad though. I removed the latch for some reason (don't remember) and I then took it for a little spin. I was rolling down the road when the hood started hopping up and down, I realized what I had done and tried to stomp on the brakes to bring it to a halt. Who knows, either it was simply when it chose to separate from the truck or my hard braking made the front end dive and the hood stayed up and caught the wind. What ever it was that hood was ripped from the truck and GONE. I mean GONE. I was looking out the rear window waiting for it to come down on top of one of the cars parked on the street but it hit right in the middle of the street thank God!

I took this photo when I got it back home.

Couple things to consider when converting to MIG vs. just flux core wire welders. You need a welder that can change polarity easily, as gas shielding runs reverse polarity to flux core. You also need a gas solenoid to start the gas flow when you hit the trigger, and of course a whole different gun to flow gas as it guides the wire and welds. You'll also need to purchase a tank and 75/25 mix gas. That's about $180 alone for a full bottle purchased in the medium 80 size.
It' still cheaper than buying another welder, and the welds will be cleaner, nicer, and just way better too! Only thing flux does better is weld dirty rusty metal.

We weent to a wap meet yeterday, and jut a we pulled in my buddy's 1956 Chevy gasser blew the rearend. I mean dead in the water, no movement blown! There were three of us there, so we pushed it to the curb and locked it up.
Went ahead and went to the swap meet since we were there, and 2nd stall in the door a guy has a complete 3rd member for a '55-'64 Chevy sitting on his tailgate. It was 3.36 and he had 3.73, but it was also $40, so he grabbed it and tossed it in the trunk of the '56.
Called AAA and they hauled it home on a flatbed. Today we tore out the old 3rd member and the spiders had literally exploded! The ring and pinion were perfect, so we dropped in the 3.36 rear in a couple hours and later he can replace the spiders and side gears and have a good spare.

Installed the freshly ceramic coated exhaust system in the turbo rambler and had my grandsons, (two three year olds) help me change the oil in the wife's car.
Wow....what a challenge.
Like bad rat says, " Those two boys could destroy a tank with a rubber hammer".

I hope you aren't going to lose intrest in that Anglia Bill.

Thats no joke,, my daughters twin 9y/o are a human wrecking crew, a sherman tank wouldn't stand a chance,,,
Nope not a chance,, Its in storage for a couple of months untill I can get another project done, I started a new business building forklift attachments, that will hopefully sell , so I want to test the waters a little to see how they are going to sell, before I jump in and lease a commercial space to build them,,
