Ok, been a few restless days tearing into my to-do list. Totally neglecting my actual work; we'll see when the boss catches on...
First, I soda blasted the squared oil bag, and then started to cut out the shitty battery-box thing some hippie had tried welding in.
Then I took the frame outside and soda blasted it clean too.. VERY NICE
Here's what it looks like as I mock up the cast floorboard tabs for welding.
At night I tore off the rear subframe out of the below car.... Now i just gotta clean it up and swap it into the newer one.. Hopefully this weekend.
No suspension, wiring harness, tail lights, speakers, steering wheel, interior, and the motor/trans is comming out this weekend. I want my turbo motor back!
Today I rebuilt the 1972 rear juice drum brake and hub with new hardware and bearings. I also treated some rust that was inside the rim and painted it black. No detailed pictures, I was hard at work.
Then I built up the nerve to start welding on my narrowed sporty tank.. Not too bad considering I just learned how to TIG.
Finally, A mock up of what I've been doing while avoiding my work this week. I swear I'll get it done tonight (my work that is). The tank wont be sitting that high or forward, its the only way i got it to stay for a picture.
