      yeah i hear you on the tranny raise pieces. i could have made my own side plates for my bus but the time vs. money thing wasn't in my favor for doing it myself. plus detroit johnny has awesome turn around times for those semi-local to him.

      and tell me more of this "bastard 40hp" you are about. i have 3 40hp motors just hanging out at present.

      2 of my 3 fit that bill the other is locked up from sitting but i'm betting if you cracked her open she'd be standard all the way thru.

      i like 36hp motors

      deck lid looks good tightnuts, did you rattle can the clear? I have a horn ring hear but P/O removed the ring so it just covers the center and dont have the half moon ring under it. I think that piece gets in the way anyway. He did a hack job but the two nubs just need to be removed. If you interested PM me and I will get some pics for ya. It would be real cheap... like I can drop it in the mail just to help the cause.
      Smile it will get Worse!!

      Yep. The patina on this bitch is killer. The PO did a little respray on the rear fender and from the front of the doors forward. Gonna carefully remove the respray and whatever body work is there and get it to OG standard "whatever that ends up being" and clear coat what's there..


      For now the wheels are gonna be stock smoothies with 165 out back and 135 up front.

      In the end I and going with 17" BRM "not a big fan of BRM's but love the 17" size" or 17" fuchs.

      17" gas burners would mess my pants up a lot..

      Im not a big fan of the BRM's either. The Fuchs are a different story. Now if some one made full chromed 17" gas buners i would drop dead over those.

      I keep toying about going OG color brown and cream or pigalle.

      I think with panama beige and pigalle interior would be sick!!!!!


      Got the drop spindles today and adding some salt and water to the rear fender yesturday and after letting sit for 1 day it turned out the way I wanted

      bleach and vinegar mixed 50/50 works really well for that too. and really fast. I don't blame you for getting one of Johnny's trans raise kits, cant beat it for the price. Like you said, it's way easier than making one yourself.

      Decided that the 63 I got the other day will be the parts car for this one.
      the 63 was hit HARD in the pass front quater. To the point the welded a whole new quater section on. Cut the dash in half and all the way down the center of the trunk to the gas tank.

      Today I welded in the beam adjusters in. Cut the rear driver side foot ret area out to raise it up to make a flat pan.

      removed the gas tank
      swapped out the ignitions
      install wiper switch
      pulled the tie rods of the 63 beam
      Pulled the speedo cable

      it only takes breaking one of those once before it will change your opinion on them.

      do i wish that upon anyone? no. i pray that that if it does it happens at lower speed with no one around and the outcome is positive.

      loose knows my opinion on the matter and it's his car so he can fully do what he wants.



      on a side note i'm getting ready to make my own bolt on spring plate extenders for correcting rear toe. totally safe and fully adjustable to allow you to really dial in the rear alignment. best of all priced cheap. when i'm back on my game i'll throw them up in the chat section for anyone who wants a pair.


      rear floor section came out pretty awesome
