No metal butchery from me for a while. Losing internet sometime today for a week. Current ISP discontinued residential service and the new one won't start until the 11th.

I did weld in the new right side body mount on the '65 F100 at work yesterday but forgot the camera, again... Floor pan patch is very close to ready for install too. Then it's on to fabricating a new pillar and cowl, like the left side was.

More metal work posts? What would you like to see? Fab, patches, straightening? All forums are just dying or becoming ad-heavy social networks. There's no young ones interested in learning how to fix metal things. We've been overrun by the "throw away and buy new" approach and old is now a bad word if you're under like 40. Everyone thinks all 350s are the same. Tough to do anything with that.

Unfortunately we all can't get a bunch of the good stuff done everyday. We do go on a run now and then with everyone getting something done or everyone having lunch. It's a new year, I think we will be getting more done now.

I have this up in my medicine cabinet after I put it up New Years day a few years ago.

"May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art -- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself."

Neil Gailman


It will often inspire me to get out there.

Brian

A lot of different forums go that route this time of year. Especially summer fun activities. Although, this is the time of year to start fixing the summer stuff so we're not doing it when we want to hit the road.

I need to tear the intake off and replace gaskets, rebuild the carb into a snappier version instead of the current fuel economy version, tear out the rear suspension and somehow soften it up, try to figure out why the vibration in the steering wheel and not the body, etc......... But first I need to clean the garage after my daughters Christmas break is over.

BTW, we're seeing Star Wars today.......

Which reminds me, I haven't had my oatmeal yet.....

I'm thinking that was more 36 than 40.

I had this morning what I have every work day, oatmeal, with blue berries, toasted coconut and toasted almonds, every-single-workday.

Yummy! Oatmeal does lower cholesterol if eaten on a regular basis. I've proved it....

While I don't have any "real" metalworking Posts to offer (other than I Metalfinished my Exhaust -I am glad that the main metalwork is done!)-

I had the last 10 days off, and I spent them working on my Car-I fabricated a mandrel bent, 3" Exhaust (with 4 Mufflers-2 bullets/2 Magnaflows, using Flex Tubes, and I hope this will keep it reasonably quiet)-I used "V" Bands for the Joints, and I sent them to Rukse/HPC to be Ceramic coated (inside and out)-

They cannot coat the inside of the Mufflers (they coat the outsides), or, if the Mufflers are welded to a Pipe, they can't coat the inside of the Pipe (Duh! ), but they finished them and I picked them up last week-

They coated everything else inside & out, and I am pleased with the results (it isn't a cheap process though! )-Eastwood offers an inside Exhaust coating, so for the two short Pipes that they could not coat inside (due to being welded to the Mufflers) I bought some of that Eastwood coating (with their "Pre Painting Prep") Aerosol spray to clean them prior to coating-we'll see how it works, but the reviews look good-I will post pictures when it's all installed-

I also re-Epoxied my front Fenders (and my mock-up Grille)-I will install the front sheet metal this weekend, then get started planning/building my Engine Oil Cooler/Oil Thermostat/Remote Oil Filter setup under the front Fender-

As always, I skipped breakfast this morning

Went to an oil change on Wife's car. Pulled inside hood release, and it wouldn't go back! Hood wouldn't stay shut (except on "safety" latch)

Took things apart, found the cable has frayed.
Found a new one in OEM packaging on Fleabay for $24.00
Sorta fixed the frayed cable so hood will shut properly
We now wait delivery of the new cable. Zzzzzzz
