    Dallas county officials are trying to get the city and surrounding area ready for the spike that’s coming.   Officials just extended the stay at home till end April 30th.  Hopefully it won’t be bad.

    We’re still seeing patients, but only for physical therapy and medical doctor appointments.  I’m not doing any chiropractic adjustments for my safety and the patient’s safety.  We’re all wearing N95 masks and gloves all day long.

    Wheels are paid and should ship out tomorrow.  While I was paying and talking with Al, he told me that the pair of early deep 6″ wheels I sent him had never been weld on and were perfectly round.  He said usually now days all the early wheels he sees are either out of round or have been weld on.  He suggested I never let these wheel go. 😎

    Started finishing off the last bit of metal work on the pan.  Welded up clutch tube reinforcement access points.0A882F05-0ECC-4FD2-9BAF-749E389167F5C3910CA0-8CED-4A11-896A-5EE488B4F9A2

    Pulled the roller dolly off the frame horns only to find the pass side bolt had been rammed home and damaged the threads. 0B056407-BB41-4D08-AF01-C6D33E23E93443F2C493-A889-4A53-9E70-7437D6FABA76

    Managed to get it tapped and there is still plenty of thread left to torque the bolt down proper.  E9C56D95-AC2F-4D22-B140-B64E99C34B12

    Checked seat bases for fit.  Looks like we’ll need to find a seat adjuster/stop to complete the pass side base.A6156C1C-F9E3-4C59-AFAA-20A36C178F9161DC9669-7CEB-43F7-B9AF-FA509C115B5E

    Next up is chopping off the old style mount and welding in a later style to match the later trans case were using. 2EE727CA-2081-4523-B2A9-5399CF4AB011

    We will build it if it comes.

    Dug a trans cradle out of the stash for this.  Fit the new mount to the torsion housing. Bolted all the mounts to the trans and fit the whole lot to the pan and burned it in.A2C1FBA4-A519-4372-BF90-87FC264A5FD311A643ED-2806-4022-805F-46F5DEBC6EE4

    Also fit the body to the pan to make sure all of the mount holes would line up for assembly.87623F00-885E-42C8-B1AC-1310129C738BE070FF0E-55CA-4001-AA64-CEA522AC743AF89CF1DA-ADD5-43FD-A195-3A630AE3166E

    We will build it if it comes.
