Picking what you care about and dumping the rest is fine by me. Thats how I operate. I was looking at your thread's front page and googling again. You sure did mock hell out of a Willys with your front end.

If Curse is like Grape, the windows-up exhaust note is also a thing of beauty so yeah... rip hell out of it. Sunny here too but like 40 out. A good day to sit by a window and think on stuff. BTW, anything to tell on an intake tube after the meat?

Spoke too soon, two two strokes just fired up next door. Now dogs are barking.

and they still bark. Which led me to making a mood musical selection:


Man, thats a good driving song. It led me to this one, which is even better and makes me want to say Hey to John.


Google gives the appropriate lyrics right on top of the search-

The tube is in CURSE's thread and will stay as is til later. Don't know how much later, just don't feel like it. Hard to get motivated these days.


And yeah, the exhaust sounds just right. Really wakes up when I give it, but nice rumble when cruising.



Ya, the front end does look Willy-esk, doesn't it.

Victory...the front clip is attached to the car under it's own power.

What's next is the big question?
Can't close the firewall until the hood hinging is figured out.

Well, now I think I need a new chassis first to set the height of the front clip properly. This is a must in order to make the new hood.....don't need hinges if I got no hood.....
It's the chicken and the egg.



I think I better finish the front of the floor attachment, fill the cowl vent and wiper holes next.

I spent almost 4 HOURS in 34 degree weather winterizing the hot tub. The deck is built around it at mid-height and it prevents removal of the exterior panels to do this job. I managed to pry the main panel up, over the deck to get at 1 of the pumps, but couldn't get the pvc unions to come loose, so pulled the drain plug. The second pump is buried in the corner and I pried the corner panel out until it started cracking and spent 15 minutes with 3 different pliers, getting the drain plug out of that one. It's as ready as it's going to get and we agreed, it will probably leave next summer. While reading the winterizing procedure, we saw all the near constant maintenance required...weekly, monthly and then every 3 months, it is recommended draining to start with fresh water and do it all again....not something I want to deal with.
Anyone want a FREE hot tub ...
Oh, you remove and transport, before someone asks about delivery.

Mitch, we had a hot tub for some years, and while we enjoyed it, they are a lot of trouble. Much more than a swimming pool. Due to the warm water and and lower volume, keeping the the water pure is an almost daily activity, not weekly.

Guys, I have been following all your accomplishments and throwing in an occasional "thanks" but just haven't had much to post. I have not even been up to Steve's to see car for two weeks.

It has been a tuff time. One of my good friends passed away and I have had the flue or some similar bug this week. Pretty much stayed in bed for 3 days this week.

John

Got a wall finished painting in the garage, got my Garage God up, and assembled our dining table and chairs that I was finally able to get (with wife's approval takes a bit of time and work) so WHOOO HOOOOOO!

Going off to the home Depot for a cabinet right now for the garage, getting closer!

Getting my garage unpacked and art up yesterday I found this treasure. This is a piece of a door from a chop top on a 1956 Chevy I did back in 1982. This art was made as a reminder to NEVER take a job like that on a fixed price! I was 23 years old when I opened that shop, buy the time I was done with the chop, had paid for the glass, another top from the wreckers to fix the hack work the owner had done, paid for two windshields with the glass shop breaking one trying to cut it (changed glass shops for the second) I made literally $300 on the job and spent well over 300 hours! No kidding! This piece hung in my office to remind me to never do it again. Wish I had a photo of the truck, not a single one, or many other similar custom projects I did, I was too busy trying to make a living to take them I guess. But it's up on my new garage wall and I can smile when I see it now.

Got under my '39 Chevy coupe and set the pinion angle for the 8.8" Ford axle. Then put a bunch of tack welds on the perches, and then removed the U bolts and flipped it over. Welded it up solid, and then bolted it back under the coupe. Should be the last time for this axle to be out on the build, so glad I wont need to wrestle that heavy pig again!
Pulled all the nylon bushings from the front leaf springs on the Chevy truck axle, and turned down the only oilite bushings I could find. They were .75" OD x .5" ID, and needed to be .7" OD. I got them all turned down and reassembled the front springs and axle also. Painted the shackles and perches while they were out, so they're in for the last time also.
Need to pull the 700R4 trans to install the flex plate I got. I'll pull 4 bolts and replace them with 6" pieces of 3/8" all thread and a nut. That way I can jack it up, and slide the trans back. Then install the flex plate, and slide the trans forward using the bolts to guide it in place. Doing this build alone requires some backyard engineering to get things done with one person.
Got my dash painted, and ready for trim. I'm going to do the center of the dashboard in simulated burl wood, and the upper and lower are desert sand color. Something like this image:
