Today I shot epoxy on those patches and cleaned up the outer flange of the outer trunk floor brace on the 59 Pontiac, so I could screw everything down. The brace to drop seam will just be tacked , then plug welds will go through the drop panel when the pan is installed. Final trimming at the butted quarter seam will not be done until I am ready to tack there. I have just about decided to not patch the entire wheel arch both layers. Ahead of the axle, yes, but over it no. As you can see in one of the pics, I'll probably need to tack the quarter patch at the ends and do some straightening around the big seam. Due to old damage and a less than perfect patch.

High point of the day was having chow with Mitch. That's a cool guy who loves the road. Great to meet an HRF bud. Safe travels, Mitch! Don't be late.

(We decided to impersonate Brian Martin and post a food pic. Not shown is the slice of cutie pie that served us).

Still on the menu! Usually do grits when I eat breakfast there

Funny you should mention that. When I tried to get fresh, cutie pie (it said Flo on her name tag and she smacked gum the whole time) told me to kiss hers. I valiantly tried to locate them on her but wasn't able to do so with all the dish towel slapping. The food was fine but neither of us quite managed to make a happy plate. But it was damn good to meet him and he didn't leave emptyhanded. The man has a voracious appetite for projects and don't mind making the haul. Of course we didn't talk about ANY of you...

Thanks again for dinner, Matt. That was very gracious of you.
I hung around Springdale talking shop with Matt until 6:45 to let the crazy commuter traffic die down and the sun set, so it didn't blind me driving in unfamiliar territory. I had to meet another guy near Des Moines, IA in the morning for a clutch pedal for the truck on the trailer and wanted to be as close as possible before I crashed. I made it 326 miles to Eagleville, MO at 12:30 am before I couldn't keep my eyes open any longer. Found a truck stop and crawled in the back seat to pass out for 5 hours.
I got home at 2:30 this after noon after driving 2141 miles in a 65 hour period. On the way down to Denton, I made a side trip to Salina, KS for a floor section for my '54 Chev.

Finally cut my last baseboard and nailed down.....wa-hoo.....

Cleaning out the garage, well, not 100%, but getting most of the sawdust out...double wa-hoo!!!!

Only problem now is I have 4 months of tiling/washrooms/showers to do....

But on the plus side, next weekend off to host the Hogtown Metal Shaping Meet.

Moving along, six sides squared and trued, two more band saw cuts. Some more milling, sized the width and height for the next phase.









Some measurements made, a hammer wack on the back of a center punch. Trip to the lathe, centered and indicated the billet for the bearing mount to be drilled.
