    Good thinking Pat!!!

    Pats gonna be on Pan and suspension duty for a few weeks!!! 😎  Shiney black or maybe a semi gloss???  I like both, semi is nice contrast to all the other shiney parts around it…  or maybe some contrasting colors??? 😎

    One of the beam bolts broke off in the pan head when we pulled the front roller jig off.  They had a chunk of ball joint beam section for the jig that was putting  the bolts at a funny angle.99DE8EEF-0B84-49DC-924A-EFAC539AFB836DE5B2F3-65C0-4C61-9AB5-A3EDAF26957A

    I used a couple sections of tube slipped into each other and tacked that to the bulkhead as a drill guide.DE83CC02-D1C9-4811-94E5-C76FC387C1B8

    Worked my way up to the correct size then ran a tap through it. 3800467C-A55E-4801-AB00-54AC58D4FB74

    NAILED IT!!!!   Feels good!!!!!!9724FC0C-95DA-406D-A714-B97FB609E466CA10FDF2-9759-4FA1-B28D-469D2179A89D

    Franz wanted the shift rod bushing updated to a new style that has the replaceable bushing.

    I bolted the new one down, upside down and drilled through the location dimples to mark plug weld locations for it, which are the same locations as the old spot welds.  Worked like a charm!!!F1421FA7-E914-4F5A-8269-E616612276D003DBE903-537E-4D8D-8B87-DB8B21C4576FA6C1E900-0242-48D7-8BED-78B855C5B08FC2A4C916-4DEF-4997-A7C4-4EEF2AEB3CC0

    Welded up a few odd holes and made a couple of new clips for the rear brake line.FF2C3382-BB0C-4414-B3EA-ED315B285F6DC3591558-35FA-40FC-BAD9-668764C4765C92E0BCAF-F012-453A-9468-9FC3E042AAC0

    Moved the pan over to the rotisserie. Still need to look over the bottom side and then it will be ready for abrasive blasting.905303CD-E9CD-493B-8DF8-BBE25F79A3FC

    We will build it if it comes.

    Great work, Pat….I’m glad the broken bolt didn’t give you to much of headache getting it out.

    I’ll have to ask Mary which way she wants it painted. 🙂

    Pats got it blasted and looking towards paint on monday or Tuesday I bet…. better think about it… 😎  Looks like the center was powder coated at one time.. so it is just “frosted” as it’s called…. 😎  😎  Nice pat!

    They are sweet.  All of it’s OG, shells, insides and glass. One has a drain hole and the other doesn’t so please drilled a drain hole in it.

    Thanks Pat. 🙂   What size front beam did y’all make for Mary’s car?

    With the king crabs you don’t need much of a narrowed beam. This is a 2” with needle bearings.

    Just finishing up a long night. Sanded the pan down in every nook and cranny. Rolled it out to the booth laid down one coat of epoxy sealer and two coats of shiny black single stage. 3596016B-2F90-4136-A51A-53CCF97861E51B98C2CD-11D3-4985-B6AB-022DFF9372C707788C13-EFA1-4A0E-BC78-A096D8439F06847A5C35-F487-48B6-9B2B-9C15E556B2B55F40B759-A753-4C50-B280-4D02F7A0BE67
