Hence the 302 chevy. 327 bore with 283 crank. 350 and 305 have same stroke. .250 difference in bore.

Well yes the 3.736 bore plus .060 = 3.796, with a rules (DQ) of having less than 3.801 Bore.

This will be a "racesaver" short block project. Forged pistons..., forged crank, 4B Mains, Roller Cam, etc.

I was referring to Mitch and David scuffling over John's roto. Your house apparently has a family full still so you are excused until empty nest syndrome kicks in anyway. Meanwhile there will be no shortage of messes on my end for you to experience vicariously.

Zilch today. My wife came down with the creepin crud thursday night. I took her to the Dr. monday and was told it was a virus and she would just have to wear it out. She had a temp of 101.

Monday, she began to share it with me. I worked a little on the roto yesterday but just couldn't muster the energy to get started today.

She is better today so hopefully I will be in a couple days.

John

Kept working on roof of the Merc


I used about 4 cans of the bed liner spray. Hopefully this will work and negate the requirement to recover the roof.


The Arizona sun is so harsh to plastics and vinyl tops. The texture of the dried material breaks up the focus and scatters the light so you don't notice the sun damage so much.


This car is going to be a daily driver and doesn't need to be show car quality.

No idea when the '66 will be shiny. It's at the painters and he's working on it, but won't commit to a done date. Oh well, I don't have anywhere to park it right now anyway. I'll be bringing the Camaro over from the cold storage side of the building next week to start on.
Meanwhile, I went back to Centerline today. Worked on the '65 Impala again. Hopefully have all the loose parts bolted on next week and out of my bay for the Mustang assembly.

No pressure... I just need more OPP. Other peoples' projects Only Pontiacs Please.

Forgot about Camaroooo and that reminds me- where is the green 69 I reskinned

And OH now I remember the Imp. The gold 67 goat is mostly built but has a flat which makes a sad pic. Footloose is all over the 53 door skin and shell sections (forgot to show pic of new lower shells) and we discussed ideas to maybe try on the next. To keep the crown from caving in.

We need your at work pics too. I got all the mounts up there roughly in position and made this long back seat pan brace. Version 1.0. My tenative and elongated thought process boiled down to this simple shape. Theres 7"+ of driveshaft up / down room and exhaust goes through there too. I am just trying to act like I know what I am doing but am almost able to envision the whole floor.

upcoming project

Soon to be starting on the rebuild of a matching numbers 327 for my buddy the body man's newly aquired 64 Impala SS. Frame was rotted bad , but he found a 62 Impala SS in Ohio with bad body and a good frame . So he's doing a frame off resto in his slow time. That's how he got his 67 camaro done. I know. No pics, it didn't happen.

As a refresher, this is the '65 Impala at Centerline. This is what was handed to me last fall. I had nothing to do with the disassembly. That was done by 3 different people over a period of 2 years. Parts were everywhere in the shop... I was just going to "reassemble it". According to the shop owner all the frame and panel repairs were done. Yeah right, I've heard that before.



Here we were 3days later, replacing the floor pans he "overlooked".





After months of part time work, rebuilding the floor and toe panels, I did get to re-assemble it to running status. He was supposed to finish the assembly over the summer...guess what, it looked exactly like this when I went back yesterday. No surprise. he has come to depend on me to do this work, but the customers wait years to get a car back, as I only work 2-3 days a week during the winter there.

Mitch, thanks for the peeks and man you didn't mess around on that floor! Condolences or congratulations on having earned a solid local reputation... whichever is in order. You know you enjoy fixing other people's junk with somebody else paying the heat bill.
