Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Got the Broski's truck fired up this weekend, found a few leaks and had to pull off the intake manifold to reseal the rear. At least we caught it now so it wasn't too bad.

After getting that done we set the timing and she fired up great. I gotta say I'm impressed by how easy this newer EFI stuff is making it.

I posted a video of the kid starting his truck up over on my Instagram. Here's a quick link: https://www.instagram.com/p/B9PILuPJKXw/

Thanks, I will look for one like that. Or perhaps I could make one by heating an old cheap wrench with a torch and bending it .

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Did the front half of my headliner on the 77. Really dont want to do the back it was a pain in the butt. Think if they didn't use foam it would still be up there . Foam failed not the glue

Worked in a restoration shop on long island . I have polaroids of it but I believe this is the one since it's one of one 1929 Bentley made for the Paris auto show . The car had been cut up during WWII and was used as a tanker on an RAF airfield . Owner was adamant about leaving the holes in the frame from it being strafed by the luftwaffe. I did the aluminium came as a rough piece I shaped it sanded it to a mirror shine . Took 6 weeks my arms were shot. This was in 1978 .

Welded in a lockable tool box into the bed side of the ramp truck. Going to paint it to match the bed better.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Got the drivers side step for the bed in rust remover to get it clean for priming. Hope to get both sides in epoxy primer by end of weekend. Pulled vent door from passenger side and vacuumed out at least 5 pounds of leaves and junk. Still needs more work but gonna pull drivers side as well.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Started routing out the cracks in my 67's new steering wheel in preparation for epoxy. It is going to look at lot worse before it looks better.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Stripped the door panels out. Two tiny holes. Think I may have one of the best sets of doors around. I was stoked about not needing to reskin or patch the shell extensively. Installed the 4in rear drop springs and track bar. Working on spindles today.

Re: What did you do to your truck today.The 3rd chapter

Repaired bad section in my intermediate wiring harness. Confirmed the tail lights and back up lights would now work (if installed). Will work on stop and turn signal next. Got tired after a day of moving furniture.

Just working on some small stuff while being socially distant. Going to try to get my bed steps fully stripped and in epoxy primer as well.
