bullheimer, yep its a '59 Batalina

Before I yap about it... stopped at a friend's place to ride out sideways rain during rush hour and snapped a couple pics of stuff at his place. Pic shows the weather coming in. He used to work where I do and is returning part time since a couple full time guys are gone. We worked next to each other a few years already. Guy that did the grey 73 Trans Am frame swap thing, he likes bagged Rams and has a 70 Challenger. We need him in paint shop now but from the looks of his bed floor I better watch out.

I would dearly love to but it is not the thing I need to be thinking about right now.

From the pictures though, there are going to be some really interesting buys. I certainly have the same taste in cars he did.

How sad to see him pass on and not to be able to enjoy the cars. There is something about seeing them just end up trading material that doesn't seem right.

LOL, I would love to adopt one and nurture it in his memory....

John that whole radiator support looks fantastic. Quite the project, that was!

496, did the quarter on that car get fixed after the woopsie in that episode or was the damage faked, you reckon?







Gutters are done as soon as I grind that left front corner.





This don't look near as bad with the molding up there.



Things for upcoming fun-





Then when I got home and checked my mailbox, I found that a cool HRF'er who has Too Many Keychains had left a suprise for me to find... and boy do I dig the name and color on it! Thanx, Mitch, I can put that right to use.

It don't have any damage now,,i would think it was a prop,it looks much better in person than the picture,,if it has been painted it has been over 20 years ,,James has had it that long,,he leased ut out for other movies but don't remember which ones,,he had several cars that were rentals for the movies,,and 3 old chevy trucks,

i think it has skirts on it now,

EDIT,,found this on the web,,,In the first episode where it appears, Aunt Bee has a fender bender. In a later episode where she is driving Opie to a friend's house for a play date, the fender damage is still evident. It's on the passenger side, rear

Finished the clamping block for the steady, I did not want to paint it, but did want it protected.

So I figured I'd give blueing a shot, cold blueing.




Looks good will see if it last.

You're going to have a 305 block converted to 4 bolt main ??? um, why ? at .060, isn't that close to a stock bore 350 ?

This morning I finished up the 59 Pontiac job's trunk gutters and installed a weatherstrip. It still fits so I borrowed a red top DA, locked the shaft and used some 320 grit at blazing speed followed by a wet rag and air hose to attempt to have a shrinking disc effect on the slightly bulbous rear window panel. It helped and I get to move along.

The Cat is looking good.
I was certain you would appreciate the key chain. When I came across it in a pile of "stuff" on a shelf, I instantly thought of you, as it was too nice to toss. It also brought back memories of the GTO, some pleasant and some, not so much. I got in way over my head with that car, but it made me buy restoration tools and learn how to use them.

Will have to post pics later, but continue the paint on the 91 Merc. Almost done cleaning the SBC 305, and just starting on the Chrysler 360.

Started roughing out some body mount brackets for the AME frame under the big Cat this afternoon. Also heard its not just the 68 el Camino thats supposed to be getting a magazine photo shoot, but also the red 69 Camaro, 73 Trans Am and possibly the green Bronco. Those are builds from where I work, from recent years. Woot.

And I do dig my new keychain, Santa!

Thanks. I will probably be tapping around up there every time it bothers me, up until filler time. I just really couldn't get it to do what I wanted until it was all together with a full seal in place. It responded much better to the slapper with some shrinking done and lid latched. Looks better all around. The sander technique sufficiently heated maybe a two inch spot at a time.
