I got my 2/0 battery cable run from trunk to starter on my '39 Chevy. Then installed the new dipstick tube on the engine, and the fan blade. Hope to get the one piece fiberglass nose sitting on the coupe soon if I can get a break from this constant rain to push it outside the shop.

dead plasma

pulled the ESAB plasma torch apart. The spare parts kit did not have the seat nut that I need. The problem with living out here the welding suppliers are 30 miles away and they don't carry the part. I have the plywood patterns to make brackets to put a JAG IRS in a T bucket project my step son wants to finish. Went to the post office and picked up my Christmas present . A Lincoln 3350 welding helmet. what a difference from the cheap auto dark ones I have been using. My Cherokee chin lifter was ok if I was sitting at a bench . but when crawling under something it was hard to operate.

I only wonder if I have a kid. When I was one, my choice was dark blue like the Corsairs that were on TV. Fighter models were hung from the ceiling, bombers sat on a airfield diorama below. Have not painted a single thing in my house.

Isn't it tempting to bust out the SPI epoxy and be done in those situations?

Don't knock it if you haven't tried it!

Seriously, IMHO somebody needs to guinea pig the epoxy to seal out dark wall paint theory. Car stuff is good for other stuff and that interior house paint and primer is sky high. It might be the easy solution if it didn't lift the color. No worries about sticking, right?

Pugsy I may or may not have typed it but my first thought when you said something about right foot conflict was chain and sprockets. Figured you'd take it as a rub but I wanted to say go postal. Like a mail carrier setup for RH drive.

Just sell me the heads and headers and go LS, like you want to...

I finished the painting today. I had 4 1 quart sample cans and mixed them together this morning at 8 and painted over all the sample colors, well, actually the whole danged room AGAIN, then went and got the color she wanted. I had to wait until 3:30 for the first coat to dry and then did it all over, yet again. I have now touched every square inch of the room 5 TIMES and I'm DONE !!! I didn't get a pic today. I'll be assembling a large storage unit tomorrow, after work, and will get a pic then. I'm beat, another 8 hour day with a brush and roller..

No rub would ever be taken for suggestions. Every suggestion goes into the vault and I find myself pulling them out later and using maybe none, a bit of them, or the whole McCoy. Something got me googling, can't remember if you typed it either. Normally I would make up the chain and sprockets myself, but too scary. Just knowing that what I designed would end up getting loose later. Since I will install inside the car, I sure don't wanna go crawling around in there to fix it.



I ordered a Steer Clear 8" drop.


I couldn't find any internal pics, but I may open this bad boy up for a look see and photo op.

Damn, them are high as California redwoods! The A will probably require one but I have never seen one in use that I know of. I was thinking more along the lines of bicycle chain and the regular setup wasn't visually offensive to me. But under the header looks slick and mounting it inside the cabin may reduce shock and awe from the bucks-down crowd.
