Heres the Chevelle in March. Explains things a little on the headlight panel gap. I remember they were fitted last because one was not there yet. But yeah, plenty of work was done to make these gaps and I'd bet that other Chevelle / Camino guys will notice. But the hood will be open at shows, see? I believe that was the conclusion with the owner in March, lol.

productive week. Too busy to sit down and do the math but imagine I did about 100 hours. Even though I was very tired today still very productive and then right at the end of the day...Trying to bang out a door skin, new fender, a little apron damage, hood damage. Just going back and forth as filler dries. Go to spot in my welds at the top of the skin and am not very used to the teckna. I'm used to a pro spot and car o liner spot welders. I'm used to holding the trigger for a second to sandwich the panels tight and then letting go and THEN welding. It works nice to tighten it up. Well with this teckna it will just burn a hole in the metal. I don't like the thing. You HAVE to even sand down the backsides of the metal to weld. I miss the pro spot! Now I have to weld up that hole. damn it! Tonight I take the kids to see Incredibles 2 in the drive ins. $5 all you can eat popcorn!

That looks awesome! Wish I had the inside pieces from a 48 to put on the back where the gas tank was. I am thinking it will be vinyl.

Those hoods have always been a pain to get decent gaps and if the hinges are worn/loose, the hood never closes the same twice. I've had 2 sets of hinges rebuilt buy a guy down east now and they are better than new. 1 was on a '68 Chevelle and the hood latches in the same place every time now. Under $300 with 2 way shipping. Could be a customer service add on for future jobs.

I worked overtime today, exhausted. But I got out there and go a little done. Using my RoperWhitney punch I punched holes in the upper piece of the seat riser so I can plug weld it in.

The real funky thing that happened to me was on my way home passing my sandblaster, there was no sign out front, CRAP. I checked on line when I got home, yep, it is no longer, CRAP!

I will now be looking for someone else, this SUCKS.

No sign, or "shingle" out front, advertising the business. Seems they closed up shop.

Oh, the sign at the sand blaster's shop...D'OH....too early in the morning for me.


Ya, these guys are closing up and no one else opens a shop like this due to, well, it sucks to do, and probably regulations.

Can someone get more coffee up to Ontario ?? Quick, Pugs needs a boost...

I'm on my third cup and starting to function.
Very stormy right now. We need rain after 8 days of heat and dry, but not a deluge, just a nice slow rain to soak in.

One good thing. I know the shroud is working good when the fan is running. Rad is around 120 - 130° at the front. Back side was like 143° or so.


Thermostat will only cause more problems with less heat in the rad being transferred to the clutch?


Pugsy the only other think i can think of is some one Might have installed a reverse rotation water pump or fan instead of a standard rotation,

I just guzzled my second cup. I should be good to go now.

Sitting by the fire watching the squirrels nest burn along with about a hundred Pine cones from the boat.

Seems like David’s buddies were here all winter.

The bastard just gave me a start. Was going in to get some more pine cones in the hatch when a streak ran by. I played the bingo drums on the side and bottom of the hill and you shoulda seen him fly out of the boat and into the bushes, ha.

About three hundred more to burn.....

Rotation good.
Upper hose ten degrees hotter than the lower.

Fan is good. I installed a new one.

It just killed me when I just happened to look over there as I drove by and the sign was gone. "Damn DAMN DAMN come on now!" He was our go to guy for this for 25 years, CRAP!

I hope everything is good for the guy, he was a good guy. Finding someone doing that sort of thing around here isn't very easy. I have started the search. sure hope I don't have to end up doing it myself. CRAP!
