Stovebolt is pleased to support the Salvation Army! We're doing fine but many around the World are not. Instead of making a contribution to us this holiday season, how about making your contribution to a great organization with a long history of helping people in need around the world?
So, I was reading my gallery and read where it said that ya'll want to see videos. I mostly have POV from one point or another in or on the Burb. I'll see if I can find some vids of me actually doing some push starts.
Okay, back to the good stuff. Updates! I think I'm about done with the rear wheel well/corners. I need to let the epoxy cure a little, then coat the wheel wells with some 3M rubberized undercoating. While doing this work, since space is at a premium, I put a blanket on top of the cab and store my fenders up there. The back is full of running boards, rear bumper, and fenders for my '98 C3500. The rear wheels are on the front seat. So, we let the cats go play in the playground, as long as I'm not painting in there. Don't need any cat hair in the paint. I guess one of them had a near miss, grabbed on to the blanket to save itself, and yanked the passenger fender to the ground. No major damage. A chip on the lower edge and some deeper than surface scratches on the fender. Small gouge on the passenger door. Stuff that can be fixed when I go to do final paint.
So, I need to coat a few more brackets and stuff. Mostly the retainer for the bottom, body to running board skirt. Plus I need to second coat the rear splash apron and the brackets that support it. Then it's time to reassemble and maybe make the Twilight Cruise-in at the NHRA Museum on Wednesday the 1st. Nitro Revival, Irwindale on the 18th, maybe the Lion's event in June. Then, I might just blow it all apart and put some color on the thing! You'll know when I know and you'll probably see it here!!
Haven't chime in lately, Mark, but I can see your still getting in your 15 minutes a day!!! Good work my friend. Looking at your suburban makes me sort of sad I sold my panel about 4 weeks ago......Now i have more time to do some needed work on the 37 pickup and the 50 coupe is about ready to paint.
Thanks for the posts. I feel like I've been right there helping you all along. hehe Alvin
No work for this last week and next week I have a show to go to on the 18th. After that, I have another in June. But I might seal the valve stems between the two shows.
Meanwhile, I'm getting a little work done on the house and started milling some intake plates for the '30 Ferd Roadster. Gonna try to build a blower manifold for the V6 that is going in it. 4-71 blower.
