    The Crew Cab got a little work duty today. It’s not carrying cords of wood or boulders, but it’s now the only car I have that will carry sheetrock or plywood. I threw down some blankets and cardboard because I don’t want to dork up the awesome job the KCW crew did on the resto. Also, those are palm trees in the parking lot of Lowes…the double is officially back home in SoCal (Long Beach) for good. Texas was great, but the LBC is home and you can’t beat the weather and beaches. 7B23C61B-D7B3-44DA-9A9F-EA2BCD8B3A6D_1_105_c54CC7546-2606-43BD-9CF7-DF0B7B6DB87B_1_105_c

    Looking good Mike. Keep it locked up!😉

    Doug made some sample curtains today. Single layer with the light (opposite) side of the material visible on the inside. Like the vintage picture.

    Or should we do them double layer, dark on both sides?

    I’ve been installing 185/60 yokohamas on the front of everything lately. I like the bigger tires….I also like the 185/60 because they match the rear tires and don’t have the stupid rim protector strip.

    Doug sewed some seat cover yesterday. We used the vintage picture to copy the seam locations, and Doug always lines the patterns up so they transfer across.

    The a1 sidewinder arrived yesterday. I set to work on welding flanges and painting them in high temp ford grey. Ready to install them and run this engine.

    The window frames came back from chrome. One less thing to worry about.

    Heck yes, I am excited to work on this project.

    I’m going to lock myself in the dirty shop and be a fabricating badass for the next few months.

    Two at a time! KB’s 1914cc for the Goodrich westy, and a 2007cc for Larry Smith’s red 67 bus.

    This is Jim’s car that we did the rust and paint on several years ago. It came up for sale locally and is now owned by Mike Goodknight. We’re doing a little finesse work this week.

    The motor/transaxe mounts can transmit a lot of noise too. That is the problem with Jesse’s … It has a solid nose cone mount.

    I didn’t notice much noise during the test drive. But the customer is very persistent….

    It sounds like you are working for Jesse? HAHA….He has a noisy transaxle too.  Its just the gear mesh like you are dealing with. But what else can you do except take everything apart?!

    All my life I have looked up to Rusty and all his super cool original early stuff…

    ….Now, I have no goals. The benchmark has been lowered. You have seriously let me down. 🙂 What am I supposed to do now?! Are we going to get into Rabbits and Jettas?

    I like the Tesla drive unit. Better use of space.

    Will it be fast? Like 1/2 block burn-outs fast?
