Re: 1941 1/2 ton project Hannah

My vote would still be for the 3rd gen, but I'm biased!

BMW looks clean.

Re: 1941 1/2 ton project Hannah

yeah I like the 3rd gens too but I owned a bunch of old BMWs back before all the hipsters started stancing them. this might be my perfect car.

Re: 1941 1/2 ton project Hannah

I got the steering column in and its a half inch inboard like I thought it would be, but its not really noticeable. I have to say, man, planning is nice but some things just work on dumb luck. the end of the column points right at the firewall opening, and moving the mounts in gave just enough room at the seat. the pedals are in exactly the right spot, the seat is in the right spot so even a jabba like me fits perfect. (the wrinkle on the corner is from being stored on its side, it will relax)

popped the new steering wheel on for a look see, gives another two inches in the lap.

tomorrow I will sand the dash and paint it again, the first paint was just a quick shot to see the dings and dents. then its ready for the HVAC and wiring.

I have been taking long drives in it, its addictive. 240hp doesnt sound like a lot but it is a 3200 lb car.

When do you start the build thread to make it a convertible on an S10 frame with a cummins diesel? Just kidding

Would make a good forum thread...what do you drive when you can't drive the truck? I can appreciate the budget daily driver. Groceries don't care how you got them home

I have the saturn for mpg and groceries! this is the extra, I will fix the paint on the hood and it will be the nice day fun drive car. maybe after a while even a track car but if values keep climbing, maybe not.

Re: 1941 1/2 ton project Hannah

lots going on, seems like every weekend. I was sick for a week, then suz was sick a week, it all adds up. not complaining, I will be honest I am enjoying taking drives in the M3 lately.

anyway, taking care of some work I had been putting off. I buttoned up the front end, shocks, cotter pins, calipers, pads. I mentioned way back that the guy had replaced the upper control arms (complete) and lower balljoints but didnt put cotter pins in. well it turns out he didnt take the old ones out. I didnt know it was possible but he got the castle nuts off without taking the cotter pins out, so they were jammed in the holes. it only took a couple hours to get them out. ridiculous. no pictures, but the front is done.

painted the artilleries, was on the fence between cream and black and I think black fits the fallen angel better.

I got "chevrolet" script decals for the smoothie caps, they should look great.


got the shortbed tacked. those $6 butt weld clamps work great, I highly recommend.

the tailgate is giving me a quandry, I am thinking of leaving it as-is, but I will probably just cut off the rusted top (its upside down in the picture) and weld on some muffler pipe as a repair.

I also got the seat mount lined out and the floor seam sealed. next is battery and wiring.

Re: 1941 1/2 ton project Hannah

We've had that garbage floating around our house too. Glad to see you making progress. I've been focusing on turning the FX2 into "my" DD. Need to get back in the bed of the '49 and button that project up.
