Thanks 20 Mercman, I do like how it sounds. It’s a little overkill for now but the new motor shows up in about a month and it should be just about right.

Bluebird skies today, so got one side of the parts primered so far. Hopefully the weather holds out (had evening clouds build up yesterday, but supposed to be better today) so I can flip the stuff over and primer the other side.

[On edit] Weather was with me and I got the flip sides primered. Shows up where I need to do more fine tuning on the body work on the hood.

Ah, well I brought mine home for the first time today. 1949 3600 that was cab off restored. I already have a shopping list of things to do. Having had three previous AD Chevys I know what is normal to me. The seat looks the part but its no where firm enough, the clutch return spring is wimpy, no emergency brake (all parts in the drums are missing) a dual master w/ remote, and that's in the first 20 minutes.

I'm glad to be here and look forward to helping where I can an being helped (like emergency brake parts).

So now I head to the shop and see what I have for an engine number. It's a rebuilt 235 but I want to confirm vintage.

I bought someone else’s disassembled project and I’m slowly putting it back together. YouTube and this forum are a great help for solving mysteries of how things go back. I’ve been working on the doors and sourcing all of the little parts. Took three weeks (stopping and ordering more parts) to finally get the glass in the first door, second one took an hour.....

Finally finished re-wire project since smoke came pouring out from the dash in my '46 Texaco pickup. Turn signals had been added before my purchase in 1973 and it took this long for the wire loom to wear through at the firewall were there was no grommet. Added 12v LED lights to a 6 volt system and they work. Not as bright as when on 12 but still brighter than 6 volt incandescent bulbs. Then the charging system would not work, after much re check of my wiring, I finally polarized the system and all is well in time for the Southern Jamboree in Lebanon, TN this week.

Got the rear brakes installed today. Only did it twice per side (forgot the anchor bolt wing washer on the driver's side, and had the adjuster backwards on the passenger side.) Once those FUBARS were fixed, it went well. Also installed front and rear shocks. Will try and do brake lines and master cylinder tomorrow.

Was a good productive day for me. Put my front end together minus coil springs and set my cab on with the help of my son. Some baby steps in a long journey.

Got brake lines fabbed and installed today. Next up is filling with brake fluid and bleeding. Surprisingly, I only had to cut one flare off the tubing to put the forgotten fitting on. Somehow they won't fit over a flare. dang
Used copper-nickel line except for the line from the master cylinder to the first division block. Bending that steel line was of course harder than the cu-ni line, which was a dream to flare and bend. Except for the reused division blocks, the entire hydraulic system is new parts.

Lookin good Kevin! I did mine with Cu-Ni also and can vouch for it being a dream to work with.
