I had a meeting for work 50 miles away that was 3 hours of mind numbing crap, got home after 10 pm and got out to the garage for my five minutes! I punched and drilled holes in the cab and in the panels I am welding in at the cowl at the bottom of the hinge pillars. WHOOO HOOOO!

Edit... spoke too soon! Cranked her up and the fuel pump was pouring gas on the ground. Sigh. Whine instead. Theres a dadgum ant bed right where you gotta lay to messwith fuel pump. Nifty. End edit.

Couple of coworkers complain that they don't see enough purple car so since weather says high of 81 I figured I'd go along. Had to flick a bunch of bird S off it just to check fluids and close hood but I'll kill two with one stone by obliging Footloose and SnapCrackle plus making you guys feel great about your own engine compartments.

Progress is progress, anymore than 5 minutes a day is bonus. You'll git-r-done...

Why don't you guys try to connect at the Shades of the Past? Mitch is coming already and it's not that far for you David. It would be a fun weekend.

Got an answer on the frame,that I didnt want,,,



Good morning Jim,,it is probably a long shot but do you still have the 55 frame with the C4 suspension for sale.














Sorry David but it’s now in Minnesota and the guy was really happy with it!












i should have come got it earlier ,but wasnt able to travel bucause of the Corvette wreck,,soose and you loose,, Thanks JIM ,,hope all is well for you and yours.
















I was hoping you would get it, would have loved to have seen it finished under that 55. I hope you keep on posting pictures of your progress on it!!







Chat Conversation End


























































































This anint you is it mitch,,

Well I got one screwed on. Top has bent flanges that meet the package tray and hinge pocket. I decided it looks fine with no bead on the bottom. I have a little collision work to do on a Chevy truck then I'll make the driver's side. This first pic shows the only potential interference area on the outer wheelhouse, the flat spot. Window regulator and glass fit close behind the little bumpout so I'll not go any farther with that until tires are on wheels. Yesterday I disconnected the coilovers and checked for clearance at full droop and theres no conflicts. Plenty of room. Theoretically.
