I straight dig it but theres gotta be a catch.

Hooked up my hitch crane and got the 5.3 out of the storage. Also grabbed my cherry picker, drill press and a cabinet with some cutting tools in it.
Brought them back to the house putting everything in the barn then hooked up the hitch crane for tomorrow when in plan on getting the 472 and a few other things.

No catch.


Reasons for it:


1. Out of sight.
2. I would never use an under floor unit with a floor hatch for access to the master.
3. Since under floor is out of the question, fluid will not be allowed into the passenger compartment to damage the new carpet, so no choice but to keep it out. Especially high PSI hydroboost.


Sure hope the brakes will feel like pressing on a feather pillow with my bad feet.



Hoses will exit thru cowl side under passenger fender area.
Consider that when it's time to assemble the car, I will have almost everything ready to go at the firewall. Just bolt stuff together very quickly.


I'm ordering AC and heater line components tomorrow so I can prepare them all up to the bulkheads in the side of the cowl while I still have a clear view from the front.



Oh, and one more thing....keep on a hecklin'.....ha.....

Wouldn't want to peg the hecklometer. Helps if inquiries are observant and sincere don't it? I'm thrilled with Pugsy Mansion 2 and find vindication in your wholehearted embrace of the theory. Aww. It is neat. You will never be able to stop fabricating and keep your marbles now. Oh and this heated massage machine I got from Mom who knows best (and preaches that putting your feet up in a recliner is a matter of survival) that says its for neck and shoulders but only hurts them... sure is a big ah. Even if all you just did was scoot to the fridge in socks. Sayeth slab house with linoleum kitchen and drafty windows man. But that thing looks like a component from Cap'n Kirk's bridge.

Cozwurth,

I always wondered if spray foam insulation would be a good insulation for a metal building, it would eliminate air to steel contact inside the shop and it has good insulating properties. It is more expensive to hire the job out but I also knew a guy that rented the machine and did his himself.

Insulation is also a concern for me on my new shop but not as bad as it could be as my shop is all wood and no steel so hopefully no rain out in mine.

.
Are you going to use a bulkhead manifold to transfer the fluids thru the side ? I did that with the '38 and it makes for an easy method, without drilling holes for every individual hose.

One double for the AC lines and two individuals for the heater hoses. About 8" hose on each inside heater line req'd. Don't like the idea of soft lines inside, but I've never had a heater hose under the hood fail, so I'm not going to worry about it.

No extending the tubes off the core? I didn't know if you'd be behind the fender but with your hood hinge spot where it is, ain't going there. So what part of the ac/heat goes inside the cubby?

I couldn't remember where the WSW discussion ended up but (heckle, prod) if theres no lines through the cubby theres your tank spot. Too bad you kicked the sauce, it could just as easy hold refreshing corn squeezin's.

The bolts holding the AC in place go thru the cubby. All tenants have moved in and no more room to rent, squeezins or not...

My wife read that and is just now able to pick herself up off the floor from laughing...

She said you spelled the "p" word wrong it is "persistence" as I call it, stubborn is her description... and a little cussing.
Okay, a LOT of cussing...

I had to cut a crows foot out of 1/4" steel to tighten one fitting. I bought the crimping tool and built the hoses 1 at a time and installed them and then moved on to fitting the next one around the previously installed hoses.
