Bits and Peices

There's No Place Like Home

A lot has changed in the last couple months. Steering is complete, Floors and patch panels are in and the top is chopped. So it had to happen I am broke! So now it's time to bring my baby home. There are lots of work for me to do. Who knows I may get some more paint and chrome on her this year.

Speed up...Slow down

Progress comes in spurts. It's spring time and everybody wants their stuff done so the shop is all a buzz with activity. So many things I need are small but time consuming. Soon enough she will be home and I can spend all my extra time working on her.

OK I will give you all a break from another one of my video's.

This week the firewall insert and Mr H. made a spacer for the master cylinder so it would ride flush and wouldn't draw the insert in when you tighten everything up. All these little things come up as you start to bolt her together.

Mr H. was also busy designing a divider to keep me and the fuel tank apart. Nice bonus is now I have something to mount the interior panels to.

A Short Break

Now for something completely different. A ride in a cool Hot Rod

Chopping Continues

I knew that chopping a top was a bunch of work. Boy am I glad I enlisted the services of a man who knows his way around the roof. I was surprised at the extent of work to do the deed. It has been a great learning experience for me with a terrific teacher!


Mr H. continues to pick away at my car. Progress Progress Progress!!! She Steers!

Pass The Hatchet

Well it's finally here the day I have been dreaming about. Mr "CHopperstad" as I will refer to him for now on. "Hacked the roof off of my car" (must be an industry term)

Wells I'm Floored

Well I take it all back. The Easter Bunny,Santa,The check must be in the mail. My Fenders finally showed up. Mr H has been waiting for me as a matter of fact he has been moving along with out me. Me not being ready and starting without all of my parts finds me backing up a bit. Mr H has been in high gear installing Rockers, Floor Pan, Quarter Panel Patches, Sub-Rails, Inner Wheel Tubs. Now he is reworking the fenders I had done at A&M and adding bolting points that I didn't know I needed for the fenders. Oh well you live learn. Next time I will do things different. Oh wait there is not going to be a next time. When this one is done so am I. I will never get into a project this big again. I buy something else I want to drive it home!

Fist Full Of Steel

I now have all the patch panels I need. Mr H is picking up the floor pan for me. I am still waiting on some parts from out west but I am pushing foward without them.

Clean up Continues

Time to pull the body and take the frame off to the sandblaster. More chassis work soon.

Take one of the last looks at the old floor. Remember to build a home first you need to build a good foundation. That is the same for my car. I want my car to last for years so all the questionables are going to be addressed now.
