Perrib, that some rack. I thought it big till I saw it on the road trip. I want to do a small one on top of my rail before next season. You mention the Pinetop/Lakeside area if you get up get ahold of me I could use some advise from a seasoned pro. :D. Got to find a set of front brakes with 5 lugs. Still working on some wiring and getting my gauses all hooked up. And then I want to get a speedometer for it.
Nice vid, and nice rail. You did good.

1) sanding, sanding, sanding, sanding.
2) Admiring but not envying those who know how to do body work.

YES YES YES! I know. I hate body work and did rush it. My ride is mostly a fun car and not for show by no means and all I wanted is was a decent job that would hold back the rust BUT, this award did give me a little more incentive to maybe clean up some of those little flaws here and there.
However, I don't want to make it so pretty that I'll not take it out for trail riding for fear of scratching it...

Thanks for the kudos perrib... It did feel pretty good considering all the hard work I've put into it for the last 2 years, with no intention of placing it on display.

Oh,,,sorry chickenpants. I guess I thought you saw my "bodywork" in those shots. Rolling Eyes I know a body person would see the flaws, but as I said before, she is just a play car. Not for looks.

Thanks for the kudos.

well i kinda got rid of old bettsy and traded it fro a 1973 chevy nova 350 crate motor bored out 30 over 4 barrel edelbrock carb looks good but it is just another project car for me something to beat around in and clean up and make it half way decent rat rod type of street car just something to have fun in and what not
so yeah i will be working on that and probably going to get a baja in the future

I tore apart the Thing beam I got a couple weeks ago:

Had to use a puller to get the drums off the spindles it was so rusty. Amazingly, once I did that the bearings came right off. Who would've guessed?

It took me all day to get the thing apart. I thought $300 seemed steep for such a rusty beam, but now I see them on the Samba for $600. Jeez.
