Re: Monday Ramblings

Keith, this morning I watched the bear video you posted and showed my wife. We had a conversation about how fast they are then I went out to the shop. 5 minutes later I was pulling on my coveralls when I heard the chickens making a racket. I walked out of the shop and heard that distinct huffing sou...

Re: Another 72 510

Nice work. I bet it feels good to have it in primer. Now that you've had plenty of practice you should come over and do mine.

Re: Jeff's '70 2 Door

Its been one step forward and two steps back since my last post. I have been stripping the under body and engine bay and trying to finish up any metal repairs along the way before I get into paint prep. The more I strip, the more rust I find. This one was in the rear drivers wheel arch/ shock tower,...

Re: Knox Mountain 2019

Hey Keith,
If you and others want to make a weekend of it, there is lots of room to camp at my place in Summerland. There is a nice spot with a plug in for your Boler.

Re: Jeff's '70 2 Door

Thanks for the feedback Byron. I hear you on driver position/seat placement. While I didn't have the seats when I fabricated the cage, I knew what I was going to use and was able to figure the dimensions into my design. I also referenced your cage build (a lot, thank you) and did consider a horizont...

Re: Jeff's '70 2 Door

66Duce, yeah, the rotisserie has been a game changer.I can't imagine doing this under the car. Nice work on your project. It seems like we are working in lot of the same areas.

Re: Jeff's '70 2 Door

I've been working on the car fairly consistently over the last month but it seems like slow going. I have been trying to finish any welding that effects the floor or engine bay as I want to get them in paint before I get too busy this summer. Most of what I have done is finishing small stuff, patchi...

Re: Jeff's '70 2 Door

One of the differences between the original rear quarter and the new panels is the angle of the edge of the trunk. https://i.imgur.com/SEyX6yW.jpg When I had everything screwed together, I figured it was as close as i was going to get it. Then I welded it, the corner sucked in and it got worse, espe...

Re: Jeff's '70 2 Door

Harry, thanks for the tips. I just went through your build to see what you meant by re-corking the body lines on the door...well that scared the pants off me! It's way above my pay grade but I will give it a try on my unusable door and see how it goes. Mate, your work is unbelievable. So many of the...

Re: Jeff's '70 2 Door

Thanks for the encouragement Byron. I love the side vents and, yes, I have a couple of sets to work with. Will drop in to Lordco for the fasteners. I think the full rear end replacement looks more daunting than it really is. It looks like a big job in part because it all needs to be fitted/ installe...

Re: Jeff's '70 2 Door

Making some progress but it feels slower as I am mostly cleaning up welds. I did finally get to repair the rear passenger side rear pillar. The vent hole had been shaved with a metal plate welded inside and filled. The original hole was wrecked. https://i.imgur.com/QiS79dY.jpg https://i.imgur.com/Gt...
