Here are bonus, and they are jobs I am not working on at all. Variety old car entertainment purposes only. That body kit for the Beemer is assanine. Just the plain body is pretty hot, for me. Might be the best looking BMW I know of. This one has stories, a rearend impact then fire looks like. Poor repairs and an aborted project but apparently both the car and body kit are rare. Everybody seems to remember the hot wheels of the race car.




Back to America and believe it or not the champion paper slider working on the fenders there named his kid Chevy Pickup. Bald eagles and stuff, hell yeah.



Did you all eat your suppers? Do all your homework? Brush all your teeth? OK...


Who all knows what kinda stripe job this is on the Corvette job now? Raise your hand.

My son and I had a red letter day! We fired the motor up in the Nova for the first time since we rebuilt it a couple years ago. We had a couple hiccups along the way (you'll need to check my journal). Needless to say we persevered got it running and the cam broke in. The neighbors didn't even complain about the open headers

I have a slow witted question for Raisin Bran sunshine man...

Pugsy, your glovebox stuck in my head. Its

As a guy who never liked touring sitting on his billfold, I wondered if your magnetic fastening of the nifty new glovebox was with taking it to the hotel room in mind. Used to enjoy having a console bin with a shoulder strap for that long ago. Its handy and lockable so I wondered if you thought of a lid or handle while you were making it. Now for the serious question that really came to mind...

Can I have a Gunsmoke lunchbox? I'll paint it and put lunch in it, and of course I can't expect a thermos too but I can wish. I would so use a Gunsmoke lunchbox. Or Dragnet. If I had Batman I could flock the inside with red bat-fuzz.

RIGHT ON Mr. Junk, awesome stuff!

Got a pattern made for the kick panel, cut the piece, trail fit it 248 times trimming it and bending it 234 times. The last photo is a knife a co-worker bought me. What a great bunch of guys I work with. I lost my pocket knife and asked him to keep an eye out for it (he is our janitor) and he comes walking in with this knife for me. Now I can't carry it, I ended up buying a new Kershaw like I had and told him so, but he still got this for me. What a great guy, love seeing him every day. And he has seriously changed how this shop looks, since he came aboard it is a different place, from property line to property line, no kidding!

Anyway, got something done on the truck WHOO HOOOO!

Brian

Nice lookin' work!

Haa.........no, it doesn't come out w/o removing the door.

But, I think you're onto something. Get those old lunch pails, flatten em out and make glove box liners. They would be much lighter. This one is way too heavy.

I don't think so....ever check the cost of those "old" lunch boxes ?? Gunsmoke boxes in nice condition go for $100-200 add in the thermos and you can be up to $400...

Shhh

They still exist? With thermoses, no doubt? I thought they were unobtainium. Y'know I oughtta just make one that matches my key fob. Hows it going with the TMP fleet, any updates to share? I know you're not one to sit and lope very long.

Oh.... almost forgot to taunt the gang more...

NObody knows what the stripe design on the Corvette is from? Come on Chevy drivers.

If not, its going on the trivial thread.

After I read your post about them, I went on-line and started snooping. Yeah, they are many of those old boxes around for all sorts of shows, but MAN, they are only for the wealthy.

I have been working on the '46 Ford at work. 2 days next week and then that's it. My hope was to have the body mounted on the frame and ready to leave as a roller, but after this week, I don't know. I had planned to have the trunk floor installed by end of day yesterday, but spent all of Wednesday cutting out more rust and making patches from an unused Mustang floor pan.

Home front, I have spent some time on the Chevelle, but it is VERY hard to get past the disgust and depression of where the car is at compared to where I "thought" it would be right now. I can't get to the level of enthusiasm to stick with it for more than an hour or so at a time and it needs MANY hours of just removing all the unnecessary filler that was applied.

I will be bringing a Blue '71 Chevelle back here next week for another tech session. It is the one I assembled from bare front frame rails last fall. After last fall's tech session and my work, it still needs the entire wire harness replaced and the owner has a rear coil-over and disc brake conversion system for it.
I need to get the unibody frame rack I bought last fall off the rollback for this and figure out the issue with the choke on the rollback today. Yesterday was the nicest day we've had here this "spring", if you can call 28 inches of snow in April spring. 58 and full sun, so it's time to get the choke fixed and the truck usable again. The choke is electric and seems to have ceased opening. Hoping it's a "simple" fix, but we all know how those usually turn out...
Remind me to put the new license tabs on before next week...
Pics of the '71 from last fall...









3 weeks later...

It seems familiar from a road race team back in the day, but the name isn't falling out of the cobwebs.
