Re: PO has me PO'd

Today was a rare exception, everything went right. Double flare on the rear axle worked first time, brakes are done, and clamped to the frame rail with totally stainless 3/16" clamps. I'll let them bleed them. 5th or 6th time on the power steering belt tensioned up today, both belts are now done. Just waiting on some parts I lost (u-bolts) for the drive shaft, and PTO cover plate gasket, both found locally. rear diff. cover sealed up, and both shocks are mounted
also mounted the remote tank for the hydro boost

Congrats. Doesn't if feel good to get a win. I'm still seeing failed flares in my nightmares. Enjoy your success and your well earned break.

Thank you, and thanks for entertaining me with your two unbelievable builds.

My last flare, I was laying on my creeper upside down and backwards, not seeing clearly as my bifocals were coming in and out of range, working in the dark with a little flashlight, afraid to unclamp the flaring tool.

but to my surprise as I brought it down and looked, it was perfect, sometimes you just get lucky. This truck has fought me every step of the way for over twenty years. This the first day that I have not gone to a shop, or thought about it, in some fashion for that long of a time. I will never modify a project again!

Yeah right, my mind is now drifting to installing a LS engine in a TR-6. That is where my roots started, early english sports cars

But, thanks for stopping by and your kind words, whats up with you and your next project after your break

Sorta like a Caroll Shelby knock off, using a frame from a kit car with corvette suspension

never liked the doors on an AC Cobra, plus my workshop is too small for trucks LOL

Plus tr-6's have flat panels on the bonnet and rear deck to widen the body

Yeah, I'm a glutton for punishment
