Looks better all around. The sander technique sufficiently heated maybe a two inch spot at a time.
You do some awesome stuff!

Pretty sure the 305 bore is only 3.750 , or there about. Not enough cylinder wall thickness to bore to 4.00. 283 on the other hand was 3.875 bore. You could take it out to 4.00 but not enough room to swing a 327 crank. I know, I tried it 40 years ago. Hence the 302 chevy. 327 bore with 283 crank. 350 and 305 have same stroke. .250 difference in bore.

Thank you sir, and I am just glad to have this kind of work because I kin only do whut I git asked fer. I wondered if theres anything to tell about your young-un's V8 project.

Can't count how many times I have referenced this pic. I need to take a new one from the same angle for comparison but you can spot the original crown here. That panel went ape nuts when I cut the front edge. I breathed a sigh of relief when I saw the lid front edge level out better with a complete seal in place. The seal is still untrimmed and hangs out making it hard to shut especially since the trunk has no pan and is floppy. And that has it not quite going down all the way in back. Y'know. The car had nice gaps and I am just trying not to ruin it!

John, if your build is a quarter mile four speed pass.... I think you just chirped third gear.

Theres Pokey the Stick

Footloose Jr. got new metal for that 53 Chevy truck job today. I am still messing with body mounts. Getting a 1-1/8" hole in 3/16" metal with a unibit is wearing out the drill press elbow.

Yup, hadn't used Pokey on here for a while, so had to let him out to play.

About 1 of those holes with a unibit would have me using the plasma. Draw a circle with a socket and go to it..

Maybe a hole saw would be less tiring too..

The plasma cutter is the berries for that sort of thing. Generally, I make pattern that allows me to trace the inside so a slip doesn't ruin the part.

AE: a 1 1/2 inch pattern hole to cut out a 1 1/8 hole in my stock. PVC, 1/4"plywood, etc, etc makes a good pattern for my plasma.

No gotta holesaw or plasma cutter... theres just a couple dull steps on my big stepped bit. I shouldn't have called it a unibit, its not that. I used a burr to get past the dull steps. There is one more to go but I set myself back making changes to the first pair and stuff. Learning! The body is down on all but tbe middle psir of mounts right now and so far so good.
