  1. Looks like I'm a bit of a bad influence... Definitely show us if you do anything @s_hilmoe! Progress was briefly slowed by my new daily driver... 1993 Volvo 240 wagon! Sold the truck a while back and had a brief stint with an 89 chevy G20 van, but it got rear ended and I made some good money off insurance from it. It's a lot of fun so far. On the Buick I've started to build a new front bumper and I'm pretty happy with how it's looking so far! I'm definitely improving my stick welding skills, although they are still pretty ugly. It's all pipe left over from my
  2. Water pump pulley sold. Still a lot of parts left, let me know what you need!
  3. I'm finally getting less busy with school and have a lot more time to put to getting my Buick going. Haven't figured out my hood/fender fitment yet, I think I need to hit more things with a hammer, but I'm not sure. Anyways I want to drive the thing so I went to the junkyard and got some steering parts and a driveshaft which I took to a local welder who is shortening it to fit for me. I've got the steering in and mostly finished. Got really lucky and the steering wheel lines up with the tires! My next big hurdle is sourcing pedals and figuring out my cooling syste
  4. I recently acquired these chevy hubcaps and I really have no need to hold on to them so if anyone needs them shoot me a message. I'll accept any reasonable offer. Located in northwest Iowa but I can package and ship, buyer pays shipping. Decent driver quality, not in the best shape.
  5. I'm trying to get the hood back on and I'm having some problems. The driver's side fits pretty well, about how it did before the frame swap, but there's a rather large gap on the passenger side, and I can't get the fender in any further. I'm not sure if it's a problem with my "bodywork" on the fender or if my hood is messed up. Any advice would be appreciated!
  6. Spent the afternoon trimming the driver's side inner fender and mounted it properly. I gave it a shot of matte black spray paint and made a plate to mount it to the frame. I put the hood on to see if it's gonna fit, and everything clears, but the gaps are pretty large and I'm not sure that it's going to work very well. I also reapplied the "Look Out!" that was left by the previous owner of the frame and made some go fast noises inside.
  7. It finally thawed over here in Iowa and today I had the time and motivation to get some work done on the Buick. Today I decided to do some "bodywork." My tool of choice? the BFH. It took some pretty hard hitting but I'm fairly pleased with how it turned out and it's certainly way better than before.
  8. Thanks for all the advice everyone! I successfully shipped my first parts this week. I don't think I'll be making enough money off of what few parts I have to justify starting a business or corporation but I'll have to keep that in mind for the future. We'll see what happens. Right now the goal is to put as much of a dent in my future college debt as possible.
  9. Radiator, Distributor, Crank pulley, Intake/Exhaust manifolds and carburetor are all sold! Still lots of parts left!
  10. Still selling these parts! Will ship what I can!
  11. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/877915726376366/ Of course a running engine shows up 45 minutes away after I've gotten rid of my original chassis! Oh well. Maybe someone else needs this. If I had the money right now I'd buy it and build a custom hot rod with it!
  12. What's the "proper" etiquette for selling parts online? Does the buyer or the seller usually pay for shipping? How does payment work? Where should I ship from? Just looking for some tips as I list more parts online and really get started with my life in the classic car industry. Thanks!
  13. This is a carburetor off a 1951 263 straight 8. I believe it is a Carter 632 Everything moves freely but it is not in great shape and is probably best for parts, but maybe could be rebuilt. 25$ I'm in Sioux Center Iowa, but I'm going to be in McPherson Kansas on the 22nd and 23rd, and I plan to be going to collage there next year if this hasn't sold by then. Otherwise I can figure out how to ship it. I will be putting this on ebay in a week if nobody on the forum wants it.
  14. I will be in McPherson Kansas on the 22nd and 23rd of January if anyone in that area wants these parts i can bring some of them down.
  15. I got a steering u joint out of a 90's dodge dakota and welded it to the steering box mounting piece.
