Re: Walter DeWayne...Walt for short

I know it's been a LONG time, but I finally did a little work on the chassis for Walt. PB extreme front & rear dropmembers, PB bolt on body drop. Drug the stuff into my man cave room to just tinker on it in the A/C .

Good eye... It's actually a trickflow intake for a 351W. I'm building a 418ci FI motor for my 74 Bronco

Re: Walter DeWayne...Walt for short

Unfortunately, I really haven't done much to either. I've sold my '70 GMC and most of the parts I'd gathered for it and I've purchased quite a few additional parts for Walt. I do actually hope to finally get back around to working on him very soon.

The 'shop' turned into a cluster and is in limbo. The day after having the drainage and backfill placed we had a fluke day of thunderstorms and 4-1/2" of rain. Well, all that pressure and volume overpowered the drains and packed the dirt so quickly that the wall cracked in several places. Everyone started pointing fingers at this guy or that and my shop build came to a screaming halt. Not sure what I'll do there.

Re: Walter DeWayne...Walt for short

Still no updates on Walt. Unfortunately, I’m contemplating selling it and the EXTENSIVE collection of parts. Not sure about that yet though, as I don’t want to sell it all piecemeal.

Re: Walter DeWayne...Walt for short

Since I did make mention of my shop build in this thread, here are a few shots of how it looks today. Final dimensions are 36’x46’x14’. Not as big as I’d planned, but the lot dictated the final size. I’m still moving into it, but I’m plugging along.
