You might want to look into doing something about that single circuit brake setup, too!

Not sure if you figured this out, but you first spin the knob itself off, then that spin nut you're fighting with has to come off. I've had more than one 122 where that thing was seized on there. I had to break mine apart to replace it.

Make sense. I will try that. For now it works if you tug and twist a few times, but I dont feel like doing that everytime


On a limb decided to drive to L.A. for the weekend.. Few things to take care of

Stopped by Lukes house because I could not for some damn reason tune this after replacing the dizzy. Turns out I set it the timing to fire 10 AFTER TDC -
THANKS FLUKE

here is the unwrapped connection between header and downpipe glowing.
After I took this picture some old farmer pulls up and asks what year is my amazon ... WUT
and if I want a wagon ... hell yes. Got his number and I;ll be getting in touch next week


This is all that you see when you drive for 500 miles on I5, along with Carls Jr and stupid HID lights I need to hurry up and install M41 for the MPG ... holy hell


and this is what you see when you get here. I don't miss this place

on the way back from LA my "known good alternator" took a crap. As I was going down grapevine. Drove for another 180 or so miles with headlights on... middle of nowhere I was going to buy two batteries and make it home but got AAA to tow me instead, son had school in morning and everything was closed.


thought maybe my fuse was acting up so I stopped for twerking

womp womp


waiting for tow truck exit 347 on I5


ordered an alternator kit

picked up Billies and 29 front and something size bars from Jeffery finally. Thank you




installed the shocks
(no pictures)


picked up a few tune up goodies from Eric and Ian. Finally meet them - like long lost family members
firewall grommet specific to temp gauge




connecting rod end links

old - also found that relay rod is super hard to turn so Im going to try one from 65 with zirk fitting. It has some play but no geese at moment




dizzy that failed me - no insulation kit. I tried installing points




got this from Eric - in order how it goes


after - need to set gap




decided to do the passenger floor while waiting for parts




I havent decided if I want to cut the hole as big as the replacement panel. There's no rust past here so why bother ???

before grinding spot welds


after spot welds / done for today

Nice work on the floor. Will you coat or spray anything inside those frame extensions ? Getting ready to do just that on my P1800.

I haven’t thought of that.... there’s no rust inside of them, probably just spray black fleet paint
I’ll make sure to draw a penis on the inside too

Any ideas ?

It is my understanding that Jack needed to take some time away to deal with stuff.
A self-imposed ban if you will.

Ah well that's too bad. Maybe someone here who was local to him knows how things got on with this project.

tape


after



I was going to repaint and straighten out my passenger fender

before








found someone had a good BONDO time with the fender


theres more - fuk


so I used one from my old car that I sold - body "survived" the fire and parts are super straight on it. Best part is all the undercoating is gone
only picture i have of the donor - you can see it on the ground


after sandblasting - super quick

primer

forgot to take a picture but I installed B20 rocker arm assembly - the oil passages are bigger
old


installed a powdercoated center oil cap valve cover that came off an early 1800




M41 time
found that all my "school bus" cover plates were junk




mocking it up with a M40 because I can install that without a jack


test fitting - doesnt take much sheet mental


welded - forgot to take pictures of paint/sealant etc


this thing is heavy


1/2 way in. After this shot I had to remove jack (not me) and lay under and manual finish the job. It got really personal. Found out later the reverse gear is crap. Will come out later and be rebuild (at some point) and a known good one will go in


carpet - both fronts are done


My new cat - she goes on rides sometimes




Preview of some things I been doing

brought these home

Good to have you back.
You're doing that sedan justice, nice work! I wish I had a dash pad to trade you, it would clean up the interior of that car so much.

Thank you

Dashpad -soon. I try to do things on the cheap first.............
What’s worse is that I had new front seat upholstery and foam (for one seat) and other car parts stolen from my porch... about $850 worth of stuff

Thank you
but that’s how I sign my checks man

dome light works with doors



powdercoated glove/speaker shelf. Painted the material SEM and installed a larger speaker - painted it black to hide it. I keep forgetting to get a longer screw for the shelf clip on kick panel


debating if I should install this grill on this car or the 67 wagon- I leaning toward this car. only thing wrong with it is the bottom center section, between front and radiator - need to cut one out from a wrecked one and paint to match the door/fender.

picture before washing it. Powder coat grill insert gloss or semi gloss black ?
