Loaded mine on the trailer tonight to get ready for the big move to the new shop on Tuesday.

::sigh:: Only got an hour in after work tonight. Managed to degrease both upper arms and get one stripped.





I am off tomorrow, hoping I can put a big dent in my work load.

I finally got mine out for the first time this year, since I got the Camaro I've been driving that and really enjoying it, but now that I got the Chevelle out I forgot how much fun it is to drive....It has over twice the HP and TQ than the Camaro which makes the fun factor twice as fun.

I'm lucky to have both cars running and get to enjoy them in different ways.

Also, I got pulled over in the Camaro for having a tail light burned out the other evening...I wonder if Tony is going to cover that under warranty as well as the clock not working (ha). I'm sure we talked about a 5 year unlimited miles bumper to bumper warranty when I bought it.

Of course I will cover that bulb. I picked up around 100 NOS 1157 bulbs from my friend Tony D. Come on over and get you some of them. Now, about that non-working clock...the wind -up pocket watch is still here.

Glad the Chevelle is doing alright for you.

Put in a solid 5-6 hours today, overall I feel like I had a productive day.



One down... three more to go.

Did some "cad plating" with specialty paint to a few parts.



I need to get back to work on the cross member and frame rails ASAP. Before I know it, I'll have all of these parts cleaned & painted - but nowhere to put them.

That's looking very nice. The fun part is putting all the clean parts back on.

It's a "krylon rebuild", as I've been told. But, I just don't have the space, or resources to do a 1000 point resto. As everyone can see, I am working on the car in a carport. I won't bore everyone with the details, I will just say that the economy has kicked me in the teeth since 2009. I no longer own a home, and make about 1/3 of what I used to. Just doing the best I can right now, and trying to do this automobile the justice it deserves.

Thanks for all of the kind words and encouragement, it really does help.

Looks good. Keep at it, it'll be done before you know it.
