    We need to get this trans over to Painters and order a BRAND NEW 1914cc…ย  That will surely take a few weeks… ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    I am going to keep working on the pan today.. Get that lip chiseled off the inside, cut the tunnel open and reinforce the clutch tube, get out a broken bolt and get it moved out to the blast booth..ย  ย  Then I guess I will get the body out and do the last few things done to it before it gets blown apart and blasted for the last time!!!ย  ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Žย  Round up a good deck lid too…

    Sounds like a bunch of blasting coming up..

    Whew!ย  Man, just went 14 days straight with no breaks with Ian resto efforts…a little crazy….

    Lemme get back to your updated progress…..looking GREAT!ย  Pan is really shaping up!ย  Nice bird in the tunnel….at least it wasn’t a rat…don’t have to haveย  a “rat rod”…lol!

    I’dย  like to do a 2” narrowedย  CB front end with dropped spindles n adjusters….since their disc brake setup pushes the wheels out….like you said…probably only using the steering box, if it’s any good…..

    I saw the backing plates n other brake stuff was missing on the rear…..just drums on axles….maybe it all froze up on someone….

    Clutch tube looking a LOT better!ย  Amazing how good the clutch works when that stuff is in place like it’s supposed to be!!!! lol!

    Like the idea of stock gears with a high fourth for highway cruisin….stainless flex brake lines for a little bling under there! Would like super diff n HD side plate too! I’m not racing or a gear jammer, but like to have fun every now n then…need a nice Berg shifter like a GB 6710…don’t know if they still do that polished finger grip handle….

     

    You only go around 1 time, make it epic!

    All sounds good to me….ย  ย hey Tom… I assume we are keeping trim holes??ย  Not full cal look right?ย  No t- bars or center lines?ย  Trim in the windows… ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Pat and I are going to team up on this and knock out some work..ย  Get the body all body worked…ย  ย Next is blow it apart and blast it!

    You guys are kicking ass on this. Thatโ€™s the difference between a body shop and you guys. You know all the weird little details and what needs to be there (horn braket for example).

    I canโ€™t wait to see the paint fly on this one.

    I called up CB Performance and got 5 of the chrome flat4 BRMs ordered. We also went ahead and ordered the narrowed beam, dropped spindle/disc brake kit, and carburetor kit from them.

    I’m going to order an A1 Performance stainless steel sidewinder for heaterboxes if that sounds good? Or maybe you’d prefer a vintagespeedย  stainless super stockย  muffler (more quiet)?
