I think that is a very good idea. This five project bull crap that we put ourselves into is a killer. Sell it and the truck too and enjoy that 48 it's going to take you long enough to do it. By that time some other project will fall in your lap. Besides if you finished up your 48 and had no new project, WHAT IN THE WORLD WOULD YOU DO???? Would the world end as we know it?

LOLOL Really, we punish ourselves with these friggin rose colored glasses we have. We look at every rusty body and see a finished project. But those finished projects take a LOT of time unless you are retired with a bunch of money or something. To work every day and make a living AND build a full on project car like our 48's takes a LOT of time!

I say sell those others and clear your head for the 48 and have fun!

Body Removal

Still tearing down the '36 Packard. Today we took off the running boards, rear fenders, dropped the gas tank, and removed the plywood structure for the seat. All in all a productive couple hours.

Well, not much done but I am still thrilled. The carpet is looking great and I am basically done with it. Now it's all about restoring a few pieces like the kick panels and getting them in there. The console that I restored a number of years ago needs some detail work as it has some shelf damage.

But all in all it's looking good!

Took the not so period Autometer tach out of the Austin gasser, and installed the old Mallory 10k tach a friend gave me. Looks much better in the old gal, and fits the era better.
