Pulled the tank straps, going to have to weld them back together and go buy a new J bolt or two. Also some filter to carb line. Seriously wish I had just put in a later fuel pump. The 68 is a one year only piece. The return line function is handled by the filter. The later models the return is handled by the pump and there is no big filter almost in the fan belts. May well do it sometime soon, but for now I just want to get it going.

Finally got the picture from the get together with Ed Iskenderian off my old cell phone! Had to get a new phone today, so the Verizon tech got it off and sent it to my email. Not the best pic, but at least I got it! That's my Austin gasser next to the stage with Ed.

I would frame that if it were mine. Seriously. It would go in the shop.

Thanks guys! Ed has been one of my true hotrod heroes for many years! That's one of the reasons the Austin has an Isky cam, and the Isky name on the hood!
I hope I can get a computer guru to "clean up" the picture so it is suitable for framing!

I am so happy to be at a point again with the car that I can go out and work my five minutes. That's what I planned tonight, just go out and arrange bolts or something. One thing led to another and I got one side of the irons almost done. I am so damn lucky my brother had given me that other top iron set. There are different spacers, bushings and screws at every single point! I went and got one of the bushings and went and double checked and it was different than the one I was trying to match. Just a little different, I couldn't believe it. I had taken a ton of photos as I took it apart but without that other set I would be really sweating it.

I have the tap and die to chase the threads so they screw together real easy, a drip of oil on the moving parts and things are going real well.

That is so damn cool Pugsy, damn I hope I can get into this more when I get on my truck. I have a number of sheet metal forming tools and they are dying to be used, poor things. I just barely got into it when I closed up my shop and working full time making a living I just didn't get back with it. I am looking forward to doing just that.

DBM, where are those progress picks on your Coupe? Come on now, 5 minutes a day is all it takes.

Last night I ran out to the garage for about 15 minutes and got a biggie done, I got one side of the top irons back in the car! I had been rolling over in my head how I could do this, should I put the whole thing together (don't really have the room inside) then get help to put it on the car? This would mean I would have to wait until the weekend to get it together out in the driveway. Didn't want that, can I put one side up without it falling and scratching my paint? X 50 !!!! Nope, I can't let that happen. Then it hit me yesterday when I should have been thinking about work, at work. I could put a piece of small wood across the top of the windows to rest the piece on! I had the wood, cut a couple of pieces a foot or so long and taped it to the windows so they wouldn't move. Then finished the last piece on the side rail and put it on! WHAM, I got a convertible top piece back on the car! WHOOO HOOO!!!

Brian
