Brian, the pic of Steve with that big ole grin says it all!

Nissan, the IH is Cool! I don't understand why more of these aren't rodded, they are cool, and there were a lot of them built. You used to pick them up for a song but a few friends that bought them never did anything with them, IIRC the suspension made it difficult for transplanting modern engines.

My work lately? I am in Coachella/Indio isnpecting corn and grapes, grapes lately, making sure you all don't get sour grapes..lol. It's freaking hot, 115 last week for 2 days, now in the low 100's, seems to be cool compared to the 115 days. But it is a dry heat!

Oh yeah Dan, he was gitty with excitment all day long.

I have always loved the front ends, the grille in particular on those IH. The father of my first real girlfriend in highschool had a Travelall so I have some fond memories of the Corn Binder.

How about today Dan, how was the weather? It's been raining here all day.

bumber install

Its been raining here for 3 days so Sunday I had a chance to work on my car. I finally got my new stainless steel pipe back from the machine shop where they milled out two slots for my running lights. My welder friend down the street welded 1/2" ss nuts to plugs at each end then I buffed the heck out it with a course and fine rouge bar.
This part was new to me, picked up a used 220v 3phase double ended buffer and started buffing. Came out better than i thought. After inserting the lights and adding some locking nuts inside the pipe I got the lights to fit just flush. I drilled two holes through my frame rails and bolted the bumper in. Had a good day. sc

Yes, I have been telling myself for a long time to visit the interior forum regularly so I can get a better understanding of that but I never do. With John on this thread doing his seat I'll learn a little about that.

At the Goodguys show this past weekend one of the goals I had was to learn some more about convertible tops. I went around to every on of them I could find and studied them, remember my cars top was removed 15 years ago so I surely don't remember much. One in particular was a 65 Impala out in the swap area that had a messed up top so I was able to pull back a thing or two and really get into it. I learned a LOT and am getting more and more comfortable with putting this top on. Now for a staple gun....

Hi Brian,,

When you start putting that convertible top on,make sure you use S/S staples,im not sure where to get them,but i saw a top.with rust marks from standard steel staples.

I usually don't look at specific forums. I will check out the "Today's Posts" and follow the ones I relate too. If I have time on my hands. I will go to the Interior Forum. I pretty much started with Dan's tutorials. I then started with page 1, 2, etc reading the threads kind of like you would read a car magazine. I am up to page 21. I remember reading Brian's thread concerning his tack strips for conv tops. DanTwoLakes's information is always direct and to the point. It is good to have his knowledge available. Of course there are others too. I bought a new Adler 267 sewing machine, based largely on knowledge gained by reading Dan's posts. Can't wait to get some cockpit time in.

Sorry about the rambling. Life is good.
