What Did Ya Get Done This Weekend?
After reading Rat33's progress report for the weekend, I'd thought I'd start a thread for everybody.

My weekend didn't go as planned and I didn't get much accomplished. The metal supplier was out of the sheet aluminum that I needed to finish my interior panels so I just made the patterns and made some attachment points inside the car for the panels. Not really picture worthy.

My windshield frame came back from the plater but the glass didn't get cut. I installed the frame anyway. I'm pleased with the outcome.


We pulled the rusty frames off of my bomber seats and gave them a quick coat of color.


There was misc. work on a couple of other projects but nothing noteworthy yet. I'll have to wait until I get further along with those to post.

Seat time!
I cleaned my shop up but the weather was so nice I filled the old Daytripper up, hit the road & got some sun! ; - > I had planned on finishing my top chop up but... I wore my rear out instead. I'll make up for it this week & post pictures... promise!!!

Did u make those seat mounts?

I had a pretty good week,(been on vacation) took the Jag ifs off the frame, got the front of the frame boxed, got the rear of the frame boxed. Motor mounts and tranny cross should be here by the middle of the week. Rear Jag cross I ordered should be here soon was mailed on Friday. Like to get it all on the frame by next weekend. Got the Jag Irs ready to put in. One more week of vacation left.(Self-employed just took off) Hope to have a rolling chassis very soon. Sorry for the double post I put it on Don's engine post by mistake.:D:D:D:D

Gas, the Frame looks AWESOME and I love the green on the seat bases.

24, you have any close pics of the 1/4 elliptics on the ride in the pic?

Mainly been spending time working on my Son's T. Got the frame etch primed, then shot some surfacing primer on it. Plan is to do some block sanding Monday night and spot putty up the little flaws, then shoot some color on it later in the week.

On my T, I built some baffles for the headers. They seem to have quieted it down a little, and if I need more I will stuff the headers with either stainless steel scrub pads or fiberglass. Also got my stainless steel brake lines in and got them bent up. Just need a couple more fittings and I can wrap up the brakes.

Here is Don's frame in the green etch primer, and my baffles I built.
