I did a couple of honey do's for my sweetie then was able to spend a few hours in the garage. I did manage to get my fuel filter mounted to the frame and the rack an pinion mounted up front.

I went and looked at the parts my old mate, Mo had found for me. Turns out they're off a 37 Chev truck. We dragged the front end home, just gotta go get the rear end. I have no idea what to do with it, someone may want it, or it may end up as garden art :D

I spent saturday morning putting an alternator and radiator on my daughters nissan maxima. NEVER AGAIN. Than I mocked up the rear fenders on the buick roadster that worked out great and I got them to fit.  Then sunday I spent most of the day building engine mounts for the instalation of the nailhead in the roadster and this also went well....John

I finished cutting up the GMC valve cover. Now I have to put it back together with a little fitting.

Logride, Thanks. I'll haul it to my son's house next week and we'll TIG it there. If we do a really nice job I'll have it chromed. Otherwise I'll paint it. I have two old Offey side mount breathers for it.

Went looking for a foam shop to see what the prices are like.  Found "Surplus Herby's" on the north shore of Kamloops and they have a large separate room in their store just for foam and upholstery vinyl, quite the selection.  All vinyl's were $9.95 a yard...cheap enough to practice with.
Then went to another professional upholstery shop...$45 a yard for 1/2" foam and the same or higher for vinyl.  But there is a definite difference in quality, that's for sure.  All a good learning process.

Sixball,
Nice work!  Once you're done can you post some pics from start to finish?  I think that's a cool idea.

 Nice job on the things you guys are getting done.  I had a good day in the shop yesterday working on the buick body with the shop doors wide open. A lot of small stuff, door jams,  and the rear body ledge behind the seat. I got a lot done. Today it's snowing and colder  out side so the doors will stay shut for the most part.

Ghost, It's nice here so sunshine is headed your way. ;D
Tom, I'll do that with measurements if I remember them. Taking it to my son's this week.
Yesterday an old friend brought a '25 0r '26 hood (16 louvers) and "26 radiator shell for me to our Inliner meeting. An new friend from another site has shipped a '27 front crossmember. It should be here in a day or two. I'm trying to get him over here. He is building a nice '27 Chevy roadster.

We have finally hit spring its here for awhile. I painted my gas tank and applied some rubber to the straps that I made. Polished the aluminum rims on the 38 changed the oil and gave it a once over. Getting it cleaned up to go to the National's in Knoxville in a few weeks.

Got my '99 Yukon running after it quit on the way home Friday. (ignition module) Got my '53 started and moved into the shop for a front spring change. Got the front spring sets  ready. Tomorrow we ride!

    I moved the 28 out from under the hoist to the oppisite corner of the shop so I could build the scaffold to insulate some more of the interior walls. I guess if I moved it, its car related!
