Dave57210 So today (and yesterday, too) I spent many hours doing yard cleanup. Get rid of scrap steel, scrap aluminum. and other crap. four old lawnmowers,, two dead garden tractors, an old central vac unit, a pile of old steel shims, some old steel shelving units, a whole pile of old engine stuff, heads, and intakes.

Also two old roto tillers, some old lighting fixtures, etc.plus 3 dead garden tractors and an old tow bar that was missing some pieces

Wife is very happy with the cleanup.

1971BB427 My nephew came over today to pick up the quad I'm giving to his son. So we had to drag the old '39 out of the shop to drive the quad through to get it out front. I got the repairs done to the front fenders, stripped to bare steel, and got them primered too. Then painted the inside of both fenders with Rustoleum gloss black.
Took a few pictures while it was out front during the move. First time it's seen daylight since last May, and first time I've been able to see it from more than 3'-4' away also! It was nice to see it outside, and see the stance better. Even with it sitting on the slope i could still get an idea of how it looks, and somewhat how the stance is.

Who is Terry Davis?
Met him at the MCACN show the last 2 years and have talked with him on FB. He doesn't have a web page, but I am including a link to his FB page. Again, it doesn't say much, but he has/had many 66/67 Chevelles and specializes in their restoration to show winning levels. Mine is just a driver, but I will have him block sand the clear coat on mine, to remove as much of the waves as possible and re-paint the entire interior the correct Dark Fawn color and add the Argent Silver to the front splash pan. After that, I'll see if I have any funds left to diagnose the extreme shim situation at the core support and correct.

MARTINSR My 5 minute a day plan at work. Got all my shims for the cab mounts finished up tonight. I'll paint them tomorrow. I can't tell you how much better I feel the last few days after getting back on the plan!

Onward and upward...

I'll be done with the White T-type today. I'll take a few pics. Then it goes to paint.

It would be nice if the Black GN went home this week end too. That would leave a LOT of room for more "stuff" to come in the back room.
B after A. Good 'un.

Wondered how the one with the snail infestation was coming along. I done heard tell the Cat might stalk down to the corner and back today. Maybe.

51 Ford pickup. Both are to be blown Coyote powered. The truck goes on a Roadster Shop chassis and thats a TCI under the '30 A. Truck is to be grey or brown and owner wants a subtle hood trim mod, dash from later car with see thru speedometer, and different tail lights.

The coupe will be olive and tan and features a 2/3" raked chop, flush shaved doors, deuce grille, hidden suicide hinges, bear claws, 3 way hood hinges, gas tank behind the seat with flush fill flap and removable bulkheads, tucked drip rails, 19" wide tubs full of Mickeys, bobbed and widened fenders, ribbed metal roof insert, '56 pickup gauge cluster centered in dash, full perimeter weatherstrips at doors and trunk, bedded windshield, custom fender and board brackets, license pocket and fabbed seamless roll pan, and fabricated tubular body structure /floor. Etc.

The A was rough as a cob, the truck ain't so bad. Theres also likely to be some 65 Impala rust repair fab mixed in over the coming months. Thanks.

I may have spun a yarn over on my thread about no pics for the afternoon so I will put these here. With arguably comparable effort to bearing a child I am due to birth another unit this week. Down to about one every other year or so now in my old age so thats significant.







Yeah the radiator mounting needs to come forward a smidge. I have a day and a half left to "putter around" on it.
