Fast 2.0 could support 1000 plus hp. But you?d have to change entire intake. I was impressed again went out this morning no throttle pushes nothing 383 fired right up. It does do a presquirt.

It was a little expensive with inline regulated pump but from my understanding standard in tank pump can also be regulated down to 43 psi

Got ends made for the 59 Pontiac job's rear trunk pan extension. Just screwed in place for support at this moment. Finishing up welding some cowl bottom repairs today also. Somebody held a tire under it and said we need tubs that are closer together than the trunk hinges... So it's back to patching until decisions are made.

I got out there after dinner and a long day, not for my truck but to start straightening a Nailhead Oil pan for my brother to put in his 39. It looks like there is still a big buckle, I swear I didn't see that until looking at the photo. If it's really there I'll take care of it tomorrow. Can't wait to drive that 39 of his.

It wasn't "recessed" it was smashed.

Here's the '59 cowl plenum / fender area zapped and patched up, and a better look at the rear trunk pan extension patches shown in place last post. Coatings drying on those and the trunk braces to be reused right now, welding that up after a sandwich.

Not much to show around here, unless you want to see pics of how well my yard vac works... Vacuumed all the leaves and then mowed the entire yard while it was a balmy 38. Today's high is 19...
The painter called yesterday and I am picking up the body shell Sunday to put back on the chassis. The chassis is buried under 5-6 weeks of "stuff", so I started looking at digging it out today. Well, of course, moving all the crap on and around it involves "sequences" of movements that took up most of the day finding a place for all the "stuff", other than on or around the chassis...

1 tire on my rollback blew out returning the Blue Chevelle a week ago too. It had a cut in the sidewall that I patched, but it let go, so I ordered 2 more tires that came today. Tomorrow's project is to get them on and then get back to work blasting parts for the Chevelle and continuing to get the chassis free.
I did mount and balance the pie crust cheaters today, but I'm calling tomorrow to see about exchanging one that has a huge "counterbalance" patch in it. It took 8 ounces to balance and I'm afraid it will hop at speed.

Dang Mitch, 8 oz, eh? Maybe thats pie for the course with those. But mmm, pie.
19 degrees sux man. Stick close to the warm one.

I almost made it but was grinding as I went, in the interest of heat management. Still have to weld up the right end with it's big gap and all. I can see in the pics that it could use some prettying up. On the inside, those upright corner braces were just stitched to the pan. They were awful shaggy at the bottom so once I put the pan in I'll decide whether that will do now or whether an attaching strip is needed.

I spent most of the day today and a good part of yesterday cleaning up in the shop. I'm trying to get things situated so that I can get all of the woodworking stuff out of hiding. I'll be picking up the new motor for the compressor tomorrow since Tractor Supply is giving active duty and veterans 15% off for veteran's day. That should come close to covering the 3 year service plan if I decide to do that.

Cat tail done, so we don't have to look at that any more.



This is something I had nothing to do with but those 60s colors look so juicy in modern pigments... and Pontiacs are exciting.
