  1. More work done over the weekend. I attached the two windshield brackets to the side panel braces. It is now ready for the dashboard to be welded in. I also started removing paint from the front fender to see what it looked like. Not too bad other than a few dents in the front. And the last project for the weekend was to replace the lower rear fender. A new piece was cut and formed and welded in place. It is starting to look really good, less and less clamps holding it together:).
  2. Yesterday I worked on the dash board mounting. Shaped and formed a sheet of metal to mount under the cowl and it will attach to the dashboard. It is now welded to the cowl panel and ready for the dashboard to be welded in, but only once all repairs are made under the cowl and to the dashboard. Dashboard is just held in place with clamps for test fitting. Some progress made today as the snow flies outside. I welded the brackets for the windshield supports to the under side of the cowl and worked on the front driver side fender. Just a small hole in both the inner fender and outer fender.
  3. The Mack Truck is now at its owners and I have some space again in the shop. Got the Hotshot back out and am beginning the patching process again. There is a small area on the cowl panel where the windshield sits that needs replaced, and that is the project for today. Also working to get the dash panel in place and that is what you see with all the clamps. They are holding a piece of metal that will attach to the dash panel then be welded in place. Two small straps that attach to the lower corners of the dash will attach to the braces I installed on the sides of the body months ago.
  4. Ford in general 1976-79. I have seen those on Ford LTD etc.
  5. Is there any interest in this? If you are interested, let me know ASAP so I can load it on the truck for Hershey.
  6. Last chance to get it on the truck for Hershey. If you have any interest at all let me know ASAP.
  7. Steve, I too love to get the younger ones in my Crosley's! That's what it is all about, instilling the interest of the old cars in the younger generations! Nothing better than seeing them behind the wheel as Mom or Dad take their picture.
  8. Is there any interest in the tire balancer?
  9. I hope to be starting back on the Hotshot soon. The Mack is just about done, was away at the paint shop for a while and now it is back getting some finishing touches to the wiring and miscellaneous things. Here is a picture of the 1927 Mack as it is today. It should be leaving very soon. The Hotshot hasn't had any work done to it in almost a year, I am anxious to get back to it and get the bodywork completed and then lift the body off and get the chassis ready.
  10. I will bring this to Hershey if someone is interested in it. It is heavy and don't want to bring it unless someone wants it. It is a Weaver Tire Balancer Set. Three pieces, balancer, weight storage, and wheel mount. It is in good shape, needs cleaned up. It is missing one knob on the balancer cabinet on top. Add it to your man cave today!! $250.00 or best offer. PM me. I am located in the Green field.
  11. I will bring this Weaver tire balancer set to Hershey if someone wants it. It is in fair condition, some light overspray on the front of the cabinet and missing a knob or something on the top of the cabinet. I just did a quick clean in a few spots to see what it would look like. I think it will clean up pretty nice. I don't know if it works or not, but would make a nice addition to anyone's garage display. Has 3 parts as seen in the pictures. $250.00 or best offer. Let me know ASAP (PM me) if you want it so I can get it loaded for Hershey. I am in the Green Field.
  12. I was at a swap meet recently and saw one of the radial tires at a tire suppliers spot and on the whitewall side of the tire it does state that it is a "Tubeless Radial". That should make spotting them easier.
  13. I just posted a picture of a tire to let everyone know what they look like. Yes, it is a radial tire and maybe when we see one up close and personal you might notice some differences with a bias, but they look convincing to me and may slip by many judges trained eyes, even with advanced warning.
  14. Can you tell me if this tire is a radial or bias?
  15. Car runs good and is ready to go for the summer!!! Make me an offer I can't refuse...
  16. Is the light on the dash working? I once had a car that wouldn't charge and the "Alt" light on the dash was burned out. Replaced the bulb and that fixed the problem. Needs that small discharge to start the alternator field.
  17. Read the whole article and you will see that Chrysler said it doesn't know of any donated Viper's being involved in accidents, but the usefulness of the car as a learning tool has diminished with new technology. There are several videos of other donated Vipers being destroyed at salvage yards.
  18. Have been working on the customers truck and it is nearing the end of what I will be doing to it. I have started a small job on the Hotshot, not having the proper steering column, I have dismantled a sedan column and will be sending it to my local machinist to have him cut it down and make it the right length for the hotshot.
  19. Or maybe donate it to the AACA Museum??
  20. What is the difference between what the SK gentleman did and what a lot of restorers do when they buy several cars to make one good one. As in, they buy a sedan and a convertible and make a convertible out of the sedan because it is in much better shape than the sedan. Then they say that it is a factory convertible using the vin tag from the convertible. He took a sedan and made it into a phaeton using factory specifications. From what is known there were phaetons made and therefore he is not making something that never existed. Beautiful car...
  21. Did some more welding on the drivers side panel and made and installed the brace for the dash and windshield. This will be the last of the work on the Crosley for a while as I have a customers little truck to work on for a while.
