I got the last screws out of the interior panels on my '37 truck and removed the interior. I can't tell you how much I hate mice. Seriously, I know a lot of creative words, but I can't think of anything vile enough to describe the little buggers.

I put in a new headliner, finished wiring the taillights, replaced the oil pressure gauge, wrapped the harness with cloth looking tape, finished all the wiring in the engine bay and cab (except for the stereo), installed weatherstripping in one door... and I made my own lunch.
Dropped the engine (292) back in after a complete teardown, machining, and rebuild. Waiting on an HEI, intake, exhaust manifolds before starting her up for the first time... Fingers crossed it all goes well...
Got around to doing my "CHEAP" oil change yesterday. Some months back our local Pepboys went out of business. I made a couple trips there and I bought all the Castrol 5W-30 motor oil (10 quarts) they had plus what was left of the Transmax DEX/MERC (5 quarts) transmission fluid they had. With everything I bought it ended up being about $2 a quart for the oil. The Purolator filter was $1. $13 dollar oil change. Not to bad.

I’ve been restoring my Fulton 800 visor. Disassembled, cleaned, straightened, and installed all new stainless steel bolts and nuts. It was missing the stainless steel clamps & barrel nuts that attach to the center windshield divider. It was cheaper to order two new complete brackets than just those two missing parts. The new brackets arrived yesterday. Hoping to install the visor this weekend.
