Neat. I'm excited to hear it run... and make a pass.

I'm scared to sit in it though.

With you in the driver's seat, I'd have to make sure my bowels and bladder were emptied before getting in.

How much hp you figure she's got now?

I can give you a little head start- I'll have both of my carbs for sale at the swap meet today.... I need to sell 1 of them.

OK- back to it.
Motor is IN! (take II )


Trans and T-case are also installed as of yesterday afternoon. Just a few loose ends to take care of early next week and this puppy will finally be running again.

Exhaust is done since the swap meet ended early due to the weather yesterday.

My "to-do" list us getting smaller rather quickly.

Did you have a "meet and greet" and sell a carb today?
I'm guessing "no" but I suppose anything is possible, lol

Nope- the guy never called. I really didn't expect him to....

Anyways back at it! I got all of the loose ends tied up under the neath last night and bolted 1 of the new bumper brackets on. I can't wait to build it this weekend!


I'm hoping tonight to get the rest of the little stuff taken care of on the topside of the motor buttoned up and we should be lighting a fire in it at some point over the weekend.

Well the bumper is almost done. I just need to make the dimple die'd front plate and burn it in the morning. After that a little finish welding and paint or PC. I'm still trying to decide which way to go with the coating yet. They both have their pros and cons...

Pics before my phone died:




That sure was fun working with round stock again!!!

For your standard gloss black, I can send it through my work account for pennies on the dollar. I'm really leaning in that direction. For what I pay, it's about the same money for the materials without taking 3-5 hours of my time into consideration.

I think I just talked myself into it...
