now that the garage is kinda clean :mwink:

today I got the car back out where I could work on it.
I had to drag out all of my sheet metal, to see what I had, and where it all went.
Now I just have to get all of it welded into the car.

Well, I guess the next step is I need to make some body mounts and framework for the new floor

Going to buy some tools today so I can hook up the new carb. But won't actually be able to do the work until next week because I work 36 hours this weekend. I also added a blog entry to my caddy blog.

A lot of today's working on the front end of the car. What a mess fixing up the lousy shaped panels.

Out in the garage this morning trying to finish up tacking the panel in place.

Nice color. What is it?

Today we took the car to our Sat breakfast. It's the latest (earliest) in the year I have driven it. It was 25 deg but the heater kept us nice and toasty. It looks like good weather at least untill next Wed so we'll got to breakfast then also. I'm going to try and explore the minimum operating temp, probably -10 f is my guess.

Shes OK, just a little shook up. It came outta now where and ran into her.

Finally got back to work on my El Camino. Figured out the center link, it clears the frame. Though it looks like it won't fit, once bolted in it fits like a glove. Found that because the pitman arm rotates at a slight angle across the horizontal plane, the center link lifts slightly as it moves from rh to lh turn.

Got the tie rods in and roughly aligned the steering.
Had two zerks that wouldn't go in. I'll have to get replacement fittings and tap the holes.

I'll add pics to my journal later in the week. Tomorrow I hope to finish some of the engine bay wiring.

matts37chev 01-07-2012 08:33 PM

and all the pieces of sheet metal that go in the left front corner
cut to fit, they were roughed in, but now they are ready to weld in
will do that tomorrow

All times are GMT -6. The time now is 12:50 PM.
