Re: 1941 project fenix

no explanation necessary. I know how life gets in the way.

Re: 1941 project fenix

had a great couple weekends with the family, fixed up my office with a bed and finished the bathroom so a close family friend could stay with us a couple weeks, new job here in town, he is from tulsa.

got some work done previously, the daughter who steals the phone cord is on summer break and never home (mostly) so I picked up another cord.

pulled the doors apart, the windows were jammed and the passenger latch had sat in the field with the window slightly down and the door handle at a 45 degree droop. the latch refused to work, penetrant didnt work, 50/50 acetone/tranny fluid didnt work, heat didnt work.


I pulled the latch and soaked it in vinegar for about a week. it looked better but didnt work still. I ground out the attachments and started grinding out serious rusty crust.



I had to tack weld it back together since the way it was assembled previously was with little tabs that got smashed over to make the assembly. easy peasy though. I replaced the compression spring inside so the door handle would stay at 90 degrees, it is really smooth now



works great now, inside handle hooked up and working. need to install the new window weather stripping/felts because the way the assembly works is to put the window in the channel and then put in the regulator/door latch assembly. I picked up the window kit and some stainless 55 taillights from bowtie bits today.

pedals in and hooked up



you might notice I am missing about 1/3 of the floor.


I have another in the parts pile but rather than "paying it forward" like I always do and borrowing parts from the next truck, I decided to make the missing piece. I picked up a sheet of 20 ga and made a wooden buck to pound on.




I also got the kydex installed in the grille area to make the air scoop to the radiator, and picked up all the fittings to hook up the trans cooler. I also cut another set of 47-54 s10 mounts for a local guy, that took the rest of the day.

Nice job on the latch. Your floor patch turned out real nice.

Re: 1941 project fenix

the only thing bowtie bits had for a floor was fiberglass, and I still need a very small trans tunnel, so steel it was!

Re: 1941 project fenix

thanks!

finished the passenger door up tonight. new felts from repops that have a foam center section to really seal up, I cant wait to hear the wind noise.



got the regulator installed and the new glass. which is tinted, I thought it was film but its actually tinted glass. so I will probably have to pull the drivers window I have so they match. regulator works smooth with some lithium grease


my rebuilt door latch linkage works perfect too.

Re: 1941 project fenix

figuring stuff out is my very favorite thing.


Henry I upload a .mov file at giphy.com and create a gif, only drawback is you are limited to 10 seconds with the free tool. then when its created I download it to my desktop and upload it to photobucket. you can host it on giphy but I think it only lasts a little while.

cant use mp4, so if you are using photo library on a mac (like I am) you will have to export it to your desktop as original (mov) first.

Re: 1941 project fenix

I made my small trans bump today, if it looks like a spade shovel its because thats what I used for the rough shape.


visited a rusty impala today at the behest of my brother back east, the same guy had this tucked away



yes its a numbers matching car, with what he said about is 20% of its original sheetmetal. it was a very rusty car but looks beautiful now.

I ordered whitewalls and steering parts, closing in on this one! found the broken brake switch parts finally, the one vacuum control switch is called a "cruise release" and took forever to track down.
