idrivejunk I showed the loaded cubby to shop dudes at work today and Pugsy I'll have you know that is an impressive and unique bit of rodding. It induces staring.

Bob37pont Nice clean install. In my thread of the same system 38 old coupe had reported losing the grease protection on the motor wheel drive assembly.
I just did a brake service and lubed the slider pins with Permatex synthetic brake lube. It seems a lot stickier than the wheel bearing grease, I will try the Permatex stuff when & if the grease goes away.
For those following that watched 123Pugsy's video, the surface of the drive wheel, the connecting rod and the push assembly (as well as the cable itself) are what gets greased as the cover is what holds the assembly in place.

123pugsy I got the wiper tube bent and installed. It took the full 3' of tube to get there....phew....

123pugsy Adding goods to cubby. Cruise control unit will pull back the top of the throttle pedal arm so one less cable in the engine compartment. Also got the windshield wiper motor to fit in there. Sweet.

123pugsy Cubby mod at the rear bottom. If I spring a leak, I don't want all the juice going to the back corner. A drain trough will still be added directing any goo to the front center where a tube will go down thru the tunnel. A piece of hose will be attached like a tranny vent.... or not......

Yep, just plant the seeds and stay tuned to see if they sprout. Like all seeds, some grow and some don't.


Thanks.

See there?

If you lay it forward, it looks more curved from behind. Meaning that probsbly sticks you with the window angle but just moving it forward might work too, if you were into that then, when the time comes. I remembered nuggets about "body twist" and "what to do next" and by the time the thought train stopped I was staring at New Yorkers on my PC. Almost made you like a coloring book style profile image you could ponder and scribble on. And I thought also that you might actually have a good measuring assistant. So there, lube the mental gears with all that and maintain diligence.

In other words, turn your grille shape upside down and lay it over your New Yorker back window opening and see what you come up with that looks like nod to the split oval Willys window. Use flat glass and sidestep getting a nice new curved stock rear window. Also takes away worries of how extra rounded the stock window will look if you just laid it down more. I picture horizontal pie cuts above the drip rails from B pillar rearward and verticals over it so you can mash down the rear third of the roof a little where you want to round it more. Then you could plop your new window panel in the middle of it, trim overlaps, and.. you know.

Hope you don't mind. Great pics, parts, and posts you are kcking out.

Thanks.



I was tempted to make a split back window, but I have an excellent curved back glass in stock.


However, it's in the vault now, so you just gotta know I will roll it around....never know what I'll decide by the time I get there.


It very well may be the "smart" thing to do. I doubt sourcing a new rear glass would be easy if I ever needed one.

123pugsy Before and after the "boob" job.............






















02-11-2020 06:26 PM
123pugsy The "hooters" on the firewall were driving me crazy, so I made up a hammer form for blisters.
I performed a double mastectomy and welded in the blisters.























02-11-2020 06:22 PM
123pugsy Filling the corners was next. The welding at that location was not ideal and I got some major shrinkage, even if I pulled a really quick fuse.


A little tool was made up to planish in all the corners.


































02-11-2020 06:16 PM
123pugsy I welded up all the corners on the cover..............
