Default 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.

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.

All I got done this weekend was showing how well I can hold down a couch.

Wait-a-minute,
I did get something done, I helped one of the local kids install racing seats in his S-10. He was tickled to finally get them in. Good kid, and that was the first time I had his undivided attention. I got to teach him a lot this weekend.
