Windshield post

These are casted aluminum posts that I drilled and tapped for 5/16 threaded studs, with nuts and lock washers, from inside the cowl.

Brian thats funnier than anything I've heard lately, cracked me up. Then when I pictured him standing up with the creeper hanging from his hair, I cracked up again. LMAO

Better than the Sunday funnies.

Oh, My wife and daughter spent a week in SanFran recently, beautiful city.

It was pretty funny because as he rolled under I thought "His hair could get stuck in the wheels" but it was a long way away from the wheel so I didn't say anything. Two minutes later he is asking for my help and he is TRAPPED the hair was wound around the wheel and he was TRAPPED. We were both laughing as I pulled his hair out spinning the wheel.

On SF, it is a beautiful city alright. I am going over there Tuesday for the home opener of the Giants and it will be a BLAST! I am REALLY looking forward to a day off from work AND to be at the ball park, how much better can it get?

Never thought of that, but I have seen it happen ... double wall pipe

I will check the fuel pressure , the pump is in the tank it runs constant ,on all of my other trucks it runs when I first turn on the ignition but stops in about 5 seconds ,when it builds enough fuel pressure.

I set the body on the frame.
The string is tied to the top of the yoke flange and the body was about 1/2'' lower than it will be set, so lots of tunnel clearance.









It's centered nicely even though the yoke is offset a wee bit.








Got the tunnel welded and polished up. Man, is it long. 82". That's what I get for rodding a "luxury" car.





Got it fit up with the rear floor panel.







Made up a template for the floor panels out of some bent angles that I keep around for this purpose.





I'll get a couple of pieces cut tomorrow.

Maybe the strainer in the tank is plugged or collapsed.

We FINALLY got some spring weather today !!!

61 and SUNNY. I finished rebuilding the carbs for my Corsa and put them back on. Got it running...

Then I started the Monza to move it out of the cold storage side of the shop and decided to take it around the block. It wouldn't idle down so I had to stay in second gear. Tinkered with it a little when I got back but there is something hanging up in the linkage from the pedal. Didn't have time to dig into it today.

Then I backed the '52 2 ton out of storage to get my '38 out. The '38 wouldn't turn over long enough to start, so I had to pull it back enough with the pick up to get my jump pack on it to start. Got that in the shop to start the radiator swap. Need to have all the bugs worked out on the cooling of the trans by early May.

Then I had to put all the other toys back inside.

Looking great Pugs but don't you feel just a little guilty hoarding the world's supply of Vice Grips?

We southern boys are banking on you having the 38 ready for May.

Went to our monthly hotrod breakfast today. Then came home and installed a couple of the parts I found at the swap meet on my Falcon. I got a Hurst shifter that was much longer than I needed, but made a good donor for my purpose. My Falcon has a factory ITM shifter with the large 1/2" rods, and it takes a special shift handle. I cut the old base off and grafted it on the shortened Hurst shifter, and set it at the correct forward and sideways angles to sit properly.
Also got a couple Moon gas pedals, so made up a hinge for the base of the narrower rectangle one and bolted it to the floor. One of these days I'll get around to doing carpet when I finish up the setup on the Austin's new engine.

Still think that work of art needs to be clear powder coated ,never mind the seams that would only show it was hand made to Perfection.!!!

Not at all.

All thanks to our local gas company that sent me an extra $400 Lowes gift card by mistake. 800 bucks on Vice Grips and C clamps.
