you can see the first picture for a better look at the puller. today.. i make 2 more adapters... some more grade 8 bolts.. stacks of washers and if i can find it my OTC HUB puller that i use for Dodge tapered axle hubs.
The exploded view certainly seems to indicate the rotor should just "slip" right off...

Did Chad have any tips/advise ? Is it pressed on the hub ?
Maybe you need to remove the hub and put it in a press ? I have a 20 ton press here...

put the first round of primer surfacer on the 69 Camaro. The gaps look pretty solid in primer being how much of a pain in the butt this car has been. I'll post up some pics on the project forum.

Went to Fry's to get everything I need to wire up my custom head light but I saw something there that I should have gotten. I'm thinking I need to punch/drill out tiny holes on this circuit board and feed a tiny piece of metal thru it it that will stick out and make it easier to solder a wire down onto it. I just can't get a wire to stick to that tiny post. I'll look into that nerdy stuff on youtube and see what I find. This headlight planning is a pain in the butt.

after leaving it hooked up under pull all night.. it had not budged tomorrow.. i have OTC wheel hub puller and 2 more of the coupling nuts with the large head hex nut on the side.. if it won't budge.. i am going to attack the rotor face around the pilot a small groove with the tiny carbide tools i have with my dremel.. i don't plan on going all the way thru.. just cut a bevel and perhaps it will free up. i even threaded the hold down bolt holes with a 3/8-16 tap.. trying to pull it off against the 8 mm holes.

if all else fails i will order up some wilwood rotor hats and rotors.. reman calipers are already on the way. as they are really ugly. that was the owners choice.. i just supplied the part numbers for new shims and noticed a great deal on calipers.

Well, after a 3 day / 2 night stay at the Hospital to get my ticker checked out, I finally made it to the garage. Got the 19" wide rear fenders sanded, the rest of the box cover glassed, filled, and cut for the hinges. And the rear holes for the lights glassed on the inside of the box.

Found out the piano hinge idea wasn't going to work. I would've had to have had too much of a gap with it mounted on the inside. So much for that idea.... Found some SS and chrome hinges on various marine websites at about half of what the Tbucket places get. Same hinge.

Will get some photo's in my build thread this weekend.

I'm going assume the ticker is at least OK, if they kicked you out !! Hope all is well.

You know how to hurt a guy posting a temp like that. We barely made it to 30 and that's mild for this time of year here.

I hope the Mustang doesn't turn out like the one I did a couple years ago. It had multiple layers of filler cracking and a "couple soft spots" too.

Photobucket has been down all day, so no pics but long story short, I cut everything off at the firewall, repaired that and built a whole new front from aftermarket parts.

Today, got the '70 SS Chevelle I've owned for 13 years off the storage lift and into the shop. It is now minus the front clip and engine/trans. Be keeping the good stuff I put on it for the "other" '70 SS Chevelle I bought a few weeks back. Gotta get this one trimmed out to sell.

I don't know how you guys do it in such temps. Today is a fluke here. We can just say that might have been a typo and create plausible denial of said hurt. LOL. BTW you know how to gut punch a Chevelle lover just as good.

If theres such thing as a plastic magnet, its ponycars. They usually have such creative alternatives to welding hidden under the plastic shell. Amazing. See close-up pic below, then cleanse your pallate with this Turquoise Frost 67 Ford cab. Fresh as a daisy, man.



Thats at least a half inch in spots. Who were they kidding? Ha. Here ya go-
vvvv

Same floor pans I just put in with the T stamped in them. Did you replace the cab mount below the pan and repair the rusted out kick panels too ?

The Chevelle is rough but very restorable...interested ?...

As long as I'm still living in the city, no more home restos for me. I just watch my GP rot and do burnouts more gently as years pass. Its a Chevelle at heart, at least maybe a Monte if not.

Wondered whose name they were trying to spell with that floor. I'd have to dig out pics to see maybe what was done with the floor. It wasn't too bad in the areas you mentioned but the core support was only attached by gravity. I just tore down that truck and didn't have much else to do with that job until the dash shave and bed stuff. May have done some mud or primer on it myself, can't recall. Another guy shaved the cowl vent slots.

The '65 I've been restoring needed all that I mentioned plus the lower cowl and door pillars rebuilt from scratch. Then I moved on to the clip. They had a new core support and fenders but the inners were very rotten too and they thought I should hand build those also. I found a pair of very clean originals in CA and they are on their way here now. For the $250 WITH shipping, I can't spend 2 days rebuilding inner fenders...

Link to the build...
