The Chongs...meaning plural???if that means Brian was with us thats more like 9-10 years ago...he graduated in 96-97...i remember it being in the front the 1st time i saw it...i remember you decodeing it...but for the life of me i can't remember seeing the block in the thing(as stange as it seems)...we might get lucky on that panel...the guy might still have the title...if not can't you put a lien on a title???probably the time we finish working it it'll clear 7 fall into place...

Has been a while since I've posted on here. Been a busy couple months out on Thunder Road. After 30 years of acquiring parts and cars we finally have the garage fully operational. Put in a new 200 amp service, new lighting, new plumbing and heating. Installed new exhaust fans in all the work areas and paint room. Drywalled and wired the golly wop lounge where only B.S. is allowed and installed a porcelain receptacle and a shower. Even hot water. What the hecks with that. Installed, painted and lettered the hoist we bought in the early fall. Built a storey and a half 16 x 18 shed to store all the parts in. Built outdoor racks for the engines, trannies and rads which are covered in tin siding and roofing. Rearranged the 19 future projects nice and neat and got them covered up with new tarps . Its been a long haul and still have a little ways to go like painting and a few new windows but thats gonna wait till fall. Its time to get back workin' on the '46 aerosedan and the '50 merc and the '52 dodge. Finishing installing the badging on the '50 Monarch Saturday. i get a chance I'll post a bunch of pics in my journal. Cheers!!!

27 T coupe built first about 1960
Went to install the rear spring so I could start fitting the hangers yesterday. Found a small crack in the perch==sooo I ground it out for welding only to find another and another. The whole top of the crossmember was fractured into a spiderweb of small cracks. I cut the top out and replaced it all with new steel. I lapped the new piece under the old so the weld wouldn't be carrying the load. All welds were ground and polished the reduce the possibility of stress risers. Then sprayed some black on it for the paint and polish guys. Took two 3/16" shims out of the shim pack so the ride height didn't change. There are a lot of problems like this on this 40 year old rod that are being addressed as they show up. When I feel that they are all taken care of, I'll blow it all apart and do the eyewash. Pics in the journal sometime today.
