I ran home at lunch and showered and changed clothes and tossed on an old pair of work boots. Man I stunk!

I sanded the glue and spot puttied it. Should be like new soon!
LOL, but how does the wheel look?

Tonight I worked late, but still got my axle bubble wrapped up.



I am not kidding you, this is the most cuddly axle I have ever seen.



I also got my NOS rare tissue dispensor stereo cover installed in the Rambler. Sorry for the blurry shot.

Come to think of it, one of the neighbours when I was a kid had one of those ramblers, but, it was the only car he ever owned. My parents lived across from the rambler for 50 yrs and you know, it was the only car he owned. His kids sold it when he past away. It just came to me. He drove it almost everyday too.

a little rubbing after trying to sand out the boss' monster run. I got most of it out but don't really want to push it and cut thru.



this color wasn't easy to blend without having time to spray a spray out and tint it. White is easy to tint too but usually always needs tinting.

Been busy looking at the front of the cowl and floor area........








And thinking about what to do next.....


So I thunk up the idea of cutting off the two cowl braces.















Then I thunk that I could get some more foot space in there. Looks like an inch and a half on each side.......

Hang in there David. I know you are sick and tired of being sick and tired. You will get through this though.

I wish I had a couple of you body guys here. I felt like I needed to make this thing as square as possible before I moved on to the trunk floor.

As I had posted earlier that this thing had been tagged in the right rear. I don't own a Porta-Power but my spring spreader and I spent some time together along with some hammers and dollies. The left side is fair and the right side is better but I think this is bout the best I can do until I have some structure back here to anchor to. From the axle back is still just flopping as you can see.

John

Damn that sucks, do take it easy, it's not worth it to mess with your health. I just had some tests done and Tuesday I was told I am "pre-diabetic". As the doctor was telling me all the stuff I need to change I made it clear to her that she doesn't have to tell me twice. I am a foodie like you can't believe, but I will stop eating everything but tofu is that is what is needed, I have been walking every night, this life is too precious!

geez, the boss tells me a new painter is coming in next week to alleviate some pressure on the body side so this week he's just pushing me to the max to try to get out as much as possible before he has to pay more for it to be done next week. Frustrating. He didn't get nearly this much production out of the old painter and the work looks better and is better for a lot less. I need a raise.

If you look more closely Brian you will see it is a brown car. It just looks like rust.

John




The truth is, I thought maybe Tim and I would have a chance to make the rear inner quarter panel and the tail pan below the deck lid this weekend. That would be fairly clean work and fulfill a bit of a creative urge. It would be good to have them waiting. I am going to buy a rear splash apron.

There is way too much work to do to get it ready in slip the trunk floor in.
