Yesterday I got some work done.

The accel pump isnt working. Clogged from sitting. But the excessive fuel pressure makes up for it :lol:

I put some fuel in the tank, and it started right up. But with a knock :shock: I checked the oil. It was low, and Milky :cry:

So i changed the oil, still no change.

Ill look at it some more today, but im hoping its an exhaust leak. I am missing the bottom clamps going to the muffler soo...

Next up is heater channel work. Gonna find a way to turn the body on its side without a rotisserie. Maybe lots of bubble wrap :wink:

Ceckert64 Tue Nov 30, 2021 10:57 am

Tires with no rim on them for the body? Hay?

Find a mattress by a dumpster somewhere, and get creative with rope through the rafters :D

Ceckert64 Tue Nov 30, 2021 1:02 pm

Donít forget to brace the body either and check door gap through the process

Chickensoup Tue Nov 30, 2021 2:03 pm

a mattress :shock: i dont want the millions of skin flakes that come with it :wink: i think i can get away without bracing. im only replacing the passanger heater channel bottom luckily.

Yesterday I drilled small holes in the pan(like 3 or 4). Then I started cleaning the nasty dirt pollen stuff off.





And I made this

Chickensoup Mon Dec 06, 2021 6:42 pm



Fixed dent





Cleaned half the pan. Oh my gosh I have so many scratches from the battery and riding around on 5 gallon buckets. Oh well. I'll fix it later.





Media blasted some stuffs.



Goodbye German headlight glass :cry:

WOAH! Look at what i just found,

https://ronlummusracing.com/product/polycarbonate-windshield/

I mean, why would i pay 75 bucks for a standard aftermarket windshield when i can buy this for a 100?

Well, its kinda 100 bucks. 200 with the coating.
