    Scraped and washed the engine tin today. The pictures don’t do it justice but they look WAY better than before. They were all absolutely caked in grease.

    I’m excited for Gerhard to bring the wheels and tires down so we can see it roller. I think he said he was getting 215/75/R15 class 11 style.

    Pat and Riley are doing body assembly this morning. 2F38F7B6-E12D-4308-A521-1091300BCC32

    Heater boxes and stainless A1 exhaust are getting mocked-up, so that flanges can be welded. We’re doing a stock carb 1776cc Painter’s Grinding engine on this. Interested to see how it runs and drives with the Z-bar + lifted suspension.

    Does the A1 header clear the spin-on filter? Last winter I took the spin-on filter off my son’s engine because I got tired of hacking up brand new exhausts to get them to clear 😂

    No clearance problems on the oil filter. Fit cylinder tin. Flanged heater boxes and welded repairs on the tin.

    I cleaned the heat riser tube with wire, and welded/hammered the heater box tin to tube gaps. Then painted everything high temp new ford grey.

    Put clips in the door and quarter panels today. Then bolted all the fenders back in and replaced the fender beads. Bolted the running boards back on as well.

    I welded on some heat riser attachments to the stainless tube. I know Gerhard will be driving in the snow to work ski patrol. Stacked tin and other parts. Ready for the fan shroud and carburetor tomorrow…I am hoping to get the 34 pict 3 carb to run nice on the 1776cc.
