Re: Grizz's Redneck Express 1966 Chevy Short Fleetside RESTO-GO!

Great pictures Rian, the NSRA swap meets are always a great day out. £5 is a bargain for the surfer gas pedal

The ole foot pedal is required for ALL hot rods!

Mine has been with me for MANY years (since late 70s/early 80s). It continues its life in the 81 now.

Agree Ian,

A great day out, get to see some old friends

And in my case, random strangers greeting me to say thank you or that they are following me on one of the 9 forums I contribute to.

One guy told he was sad to see me walk away from Rods n Sods after some guys looked for Sh!t with me, nice to hear.

And bargains only if you keep a keen eye and know what stuff is making, the pedal cost £4.00 in the end.

Excellent posting Bill.

Thanks for sharing, made me chuckle here.




Quick n Dirty.

Tailgate cleaned up, scoured with ammonia based household cleaner.

Hosed down.

It will work.





Door lock pins removed, replaced with 8 Ball items.



Yup, I like that.



Stainless Steel tailpipe tip, offered up, it will work. £4.00 well spent.



Old painters paint and brush box I had for years, awaiting its role.....

Filled with a selection of the screwdrivers from Swapmeet for Sally, as she only had 4 cheap Wilkinson’s items.

What £5.00 bought.



Her share.



Of course you need stickers on there.




Yup, she likes it.

Also have given her the socket set to take home and put in her shed, in case I need to fix anything.

Well,

By now some of you know that the pause on the 66 can be officially lifted as my divorce is through. So pretty much no chance of it getting pulled into settlement as a valuable asset, and with my MoJo returning over the last 6 months or so, the time has come to get back to it.

With Sally who I met 5 weeks ago, and some of you may have seen in the Blazer thread, already making typical woman noises indoors, and then, when I took her down to the garage, she took a couple of sneaky photos while I was in the loft packing stuff away, and sent one to me from her bed when she went home.........



With the following comment......




I guess the time has come to start getting back to this job.

My day job, admittedly is keeping me a lot busier than it may have a few years ago, but I also know that small steps forward are still progress. So I will just have to do it bit by bit like mate Ian Brown and some of the other guys have done.

She seemed to enjoy the short drive in the Blazer too, and has been sending me rude automotive photos of barn finds and abandoned vehicles almost since day one.




Meet the whip cracker.



Good news ??

Re: Grizz's Redneck Express 1966 Chevy Short Fleetside RESTO-GO!

Dinner date went well, we both fell asleep after dinner, on the sofa watching American Pickers (Sally’s choice) as we both had a ha d week, and she is working the whole weekend, part of a 12days on, 4 days off system.
I feel really honoured that she makes this kind of effort, just for a plate of food.
It’s been a while, and of course I am in shorts or track bottoms....



So after we woke sat upright on the couch at silly-0-clock she went home and sent a nice pic of the moon over her home.



Up early, then drove down to mate Darren’s shop Unit Engineering

Unloaded Prozac, while his dad made us coffees, again amazed at the capacity of this little van.



Typically, found Sh!t to load back into the van. M&S furniture that the unit next door threw out, new and in packaging but with minimal damage.



Front passenger tyre seemed a bit low on air, checked it out......



Once back in the Medway, I popped into Just Tyres to get it replaced.

Considering that other than the initial service items, I have not spent anything on the Berlingo in three years, the £42.00 for a new Chinese Ditchfinder tyre, fitted was a cheap price to pay.

Service was fast, efficient including a 5 year warranty on the tyre, whatever that means.



While unloading the Berlingo we heard a V8 roll in.....








While there, I always love the random stuff that is being worked on.




So Saturday produced some fun.

Re: Grizz's Redneck Express 1966 Chevy Short Fleetside RESTO-GO!

Back home, cars swapped around, created havoc out on the street as the local füktards do well in excess of the posted 30mph, often nearer 70-80 mph.

They hate obstructions...... 😁



Ready for the Kent Breakfast Meeting tomorrow.



Hopefully good weather and even more guys than usual in their American cars and trucks.

Later guys.
