Worked on ... Helped a customer R&R elect fuel Pump in his 86 Coupe Deville. In dis-assembly found the rubber fuel line from the pump to the steel line had the consistency of a molten gummy bear.


Just a reminder and wake up call for what out current fuels and additives are doing to the fuel lines in our cars. This has a lot to do with all the cars catching fire on the highway.

49 chev How does a heat gun restore color?

junk, what year is that poncho? 59? i love them whatever it is. very batmobilesk.

today i finally had a chance to mount my radiator, (without cookie sheet shroud), in my truck. to bad i bought the wrong anti freeze and still have to wire it. going to wire it to the same relay that i put in for my electric fuel pump. although i plan to someday wire it to my thermostat. but then i would have to buy a different relay so maybe if it runs okay on cold days i might not.

also changed out my water neck. other one kept leaking. ran out of gas friday in the buick cause my two year old ebay gas gauge quit working. still have to fix that and while the instrument panel is out for the umpteenth time, try again to repair the p.c. so all the lights work again. at least half are working this time, which means i can eliminate the plug connector. go Hawks!

49 chev How does a heat gun restore color

I really don't know,i saw on a tv show Gears I think, and tried it,amd it works onhard plastic ,,DO NOT use on vinyl I will cause it to get hard and wrinkle,,also will burn carpet so don't get close to it,,,i had several sets of old door panels so I tried it on them first...I have been doing it about 5 years and had good results,,i did a video but don't have sound I will try to post it,,

when it gets hot it causes an oily film to come to the top and will have some streaks,you will have to go over it 2 or 4 times to get it uniform.

,,

i thought is was Impossible ,but we have had this truck since New and the ecm has never been replaced,,i had the entire dash and copllete wiring harness out during the summer ,before it went into body shop,,it was located behind the glovebox when i was replacing heater core and evaporator but am ( almost ) sure i put it back,, i guess i will pull glove box out and check what is going on.

I'm not greedy. I just want the '34 Dodge, '40 Ford, '50 Ford and the A model.



I have most of my holes drilled and the front end mached up on the stand. The upper radiator support is not "settling down" quite far enough for the upper rubber saddle to snug up so I have just a bit more tweeking to do. I am getting really close though.

Man, your killing me. So many wants and so few years left to play with them.

A '56 Ford or Mercury convertible would be about perfect for Christmas though.....Now, where did I put Santa's email address?
