Yea, I did not even know they made a 16 oz (pint) cup. As a matter of fact, I don't think they do any more. Neat find.

I just found a new NOS Binks 81-570 1 pint cup on EBay for 39.00 with free shipping.

This should make a great touch up gun or a jam gun and I am excited to get it. Now if I just had door jams.

I got some you can do....

Been spending every spare minute working on the Rambler lately so haven't been here enough. I still have lots to do to make the good guys show this fall but I should make it. Had to remove the entire exhaust system last month and have the ceramic coating redone, all 24 pieces. Almost everything I paid someone else to do on this car I've had issues with. You guys have the same luck?
Drove it out of the garage and into the front yard yesterday. Body is all together with exception of the hood. I have to figure out how I'm going to attach insulation to the underside to keep the turbochargers from frying the paint.

Go ahead and post them David. At least we can claim we did something.

I have ended up in just a bit of a mess. If I align the quarters so the door gaps are correct, the tail pan is crooked. About 3/8 of an inch high on the rear right corner.. If I square the tail end of the car it throws the door gaps off.

Tomorrow I am going to try to bolt the body down tight to the frame and see how that allows me to shim the tail end to get everything square. For all I know the frame may be slightly out and whether it is or not I am going to have to move the body to another frame.

I am a bit nervous about this but have no choice but to proceed with caution and work it out.

John

Well I have new carpet in after pulling the wool out of the other removing it for console build still have to install stainless strips at edge of carpet ,,this is final design I have decided on, the center section between lines will be recessed is the reason for the extra foam ,the 3 slanted lines will be S/S strips and the horizonal lines will be pleated ,recessed in the leather and continue into kick panels;i repainted the sterring column and moldind around windows and doors beige instead of gray ,the headliner will also have the S/S strips.

I am considering airbrushing the woodgrain trim I painted fawn beige,un desided on that one yet,,

I am going to have to go back to work this retired life is to much work,LOL

I don't know how we had time to work or have money to be retired.

I like your door panel pattern a lot. Will look forward to seeing it come together.

Got to wok on the Stude. This afternoon. Got the front fascia mounts made and installed. Now the front will tilt as one piece,
Next is a fabricated rear upper fender/hood mount for the fenders to lock on and stll use the opening hood. I need some softish aluminum that I have "somewhere" I swear, anymore, if it isn't hanging in front of me. It's gone for good.

You will find it Bob. Just as soon as you get some more to replace it.

I was greasing my field mower yesterday and found a major structural issue. It has been like this for some time, but the crack was covered in grease, dirt and vegetation. It rides on the large pin in the back ground.



This disc bolts to the end of the pivot and holds the entire mower in the tube. It has seen a lot of abuse from the tube being cracked.



Set up in the press, it is easy to see how far it has been pulled at the bolt hole. It should be flat and it's 1/2" thick !!!



That's 14 TON of pressure. I was afraid to go any higher as the pump handle was quite hard to push down and there is a hose to the cylinder.



Looks pretty flat again but I left under that pressure for an hour to prevent spring back. I came out nice !!



After a good cleaning. I forgot to take pics of it after an hour of grinding out the crack 1/4" deep and wide for welding.



After 6 passes to build it back up and paint.



All back together.



The mower deck is 1,000# and it all rides on that tube and pivot pin.

It is a good thing you caught that when you did. It looks like it truly is better than new now.

that's the best looking Rambler I've seen in a long time. Keep pushing and it will be ready for the show. i just installed a new 500 thunder series edlebrock on my car, took off the 650 Holley. runs better now but still need to replace the 2 1/4' exhaust to 2 1/2 thats supposed to on the car, and take out the 9odeg bend coming out of the headers. too much back pressure. Having a hard time fining anybody in Maine that can do customer exhaust work.
going to Springfield Ma for the Goodguys spring show this weekend, hoping for good weather. sc
