idrivejunk So yeah, lots of wearing the journalist hat today.

Everybody loves lots of yellow tape and dim lighting, right?



And temporary steering wheels too. Where the eff is the shifter?



Theres a bump in the trunk, one 10"-




Heeere we go-

















Careful where you point them fins, Batgirl honey. You could put an eye out.

You guys did see that white truck in the "on deck" position, right? Next.

While we're out back, Dave has been busy too. Putting a front end together-



Heres the 51 frame as unboxed and measured thoroughly... and surface rusted but dimensionally perfect.

idrivejunk That vid was like a chaser for a big bill. I had stepped into the shade to review footage and missed this little roar:



Still, it turns out that was the most valuable thing I did today. I had to keep an ear to the ground to catch that kitty. You are about to get some outdoor Cat pics. By the way, the headers would definitely knock over a pack of Luckys. Laying on it's side, even.

Anyway, back in my stall... not much to see. Didn't even get the ends welded-

Pontiacs don't require much slip. I betcha theres more stall if you poke it good. Generating wheelspin does not seem to be a problem but theres not much throttle in the vid. Made it for the customer.

FWIW before I started shooting I did say: Atomic batteries to power. Turbines to speed.

Now to tackle today's pix. I was supposed to see the tax lady after work but was too bushed and crashed out. Fridays are becoming streams of distraction.

idrivejunk LOL TMI probably maybe. I always "felt" that it was a thing mommys do with daddys in mind.

Anyhoo yeah... weatherstrips same here. Boss got big eyes when I said it may be drafty. Why ya think I went with the euro style gap seals in the first place? I knew where the gaps would be. Jambs, who could know at the start?

Could work with PSA type also.

My new rockers, I tried to keep the same "joggle" distance as the jambs. I have a feeling, there will be heck to pay later trying to keep it wind quiet inside.
Weather stripping scares the heck out of me.

He had it up on the shop door first time I saw it, for working underhood. I recall him actually asking me early on (super rare to be questioned by him) if there was a spot besides the filter adapter to pick up oil pressure due to tight fit with header or chassis. That might be the trouble spot since there must have been some sort of workaround. My 400 used to blow the filter seals out if I didn't use AC brand which have staked-in seals. Talk about dumping the crankcase in a hurry!

The leak must not be of epic proportions but I heard the word pouring.

I say that because nobody missed the Cat post.



Early AM on weekdays at the gym is where I do my Kegel (different word/spelling) exercises. They have a Susan Sommers type of machine there....ha......


Too much info?
