Thank you Larry..! 

i was going to put a steal mash on it , i didn't know about the Gano unit ..! thanks on that.

i definitely will use the Evaporust .. since i don't think i was able to get all the rust out from the head.

i don't want to risk my Rad getting plug up.

today  i was getting ready for the frame ,but bad weather here in CA.. witch is rare.. didn't let me .

I need to get this car running.. can't wait to see if it runs on the street 

like to try the clutch and brakes ..all since to be fine , but until you get it out you don;t know.

But fist i need to finish the frame so i can rest the body on the new rubber mounts strips,, found the 2 rear originals still nailed to the body.

soo .. patience.!.one step  at a time..

Cheers ..

Apolo

the body finally is resting on the frame .. and i need to take the fuel tank off now to get it down about 1/4 of inch . due to the banjo bolt coming out of it on top , still touching the edge of the bottom of the body , so i think there;s a liner or something on the top inside of the straps for the tanks so it will bring it down just a touch to clear that.

that's a job for tomorrow. and test the steward tank to see if it will hold vacuum.

and then ... ready to drive and see what it does..!!

oil pressure shows a good 25 psi for now. and a lot of oil going on top of rockers.

Enjoy the pics.

Cheers 

Apolo.

I was able to test the vacuum tank .. it works excellent ..!

clean the gas tank.. it had some yellow powder inside from old gas i guess .  power wash it and come out super clean!

Hi Apolo

I have a few questions about rear seat back wood. can you add a few close up pics of these locations marked in the photo.

1 - yellow arrow: what is this metal hardware attached to upper rail wood ?

2 - pink arrow: is this a hard rubber pad for the rear seat springs ?

3 - orange boxes: how are seat back vertical wood pieces fastened to the upper rail and lower sill ?

 

thanks

Kevin

Hi Kevin.

i will get the close up pics next week. 

you got good eyes there ..! lol.

when i get ready to rip the front seat to reupholster it.. i do remember you want it a set of pics from the rear section of the front seat.

i will post it. no worries.

what i do realized is that the front bottom seat is not correct that's why you see in the early pics when i got the car ..the  upholstery in that seat is different , now i know is not from this car. is a square shape on the bottom frame , when it need to be round in the front corners and it' also an inch longer.. so i will have to do some work to remold it to fit in the box base,

they put a very small copper pipe , so i had to swap it for a biger one .. 

I think i'm going to put a screen or something at the end of the pipe..just in case.
