The wife and I started tearing down one of the grain trucks we have. We was going to build our jeepster next but I bet this one beats it to the shop.

I'm finally getting the Caddy daily driver project wrapped up ! The motor room has been painted, new a/c stuff installed (to change the evaporator you have to remove the engine on this car, so I am putting every part brand new so I never have to do that.) Now I can paint up the engine a little, put some new parts on it, and maybe get this thing out of my shop so I can start on my rpu again.

But my Son Dan has been slowly making progress on the cage in his Fox Mustang drag car. He has 6 of the 14 points done and the hard bending is over. He couldn't find a premade cage he liked, so we bent it all up ourselves. Still has dropdown bars to do, a seat bar, dash bar, door bars, etc, but this really is coming along well.

Should be very strong and not have a problem passing tech. Here are some pictures I took tonight.

Don

I swapped to the snows and changed the oil in the wife's daily, started on my jib crane project, decided to teach myself how to TIG weld now that I figured out I had a bad regulator and I still have one more day to go!

Got the A Bucket running and drivable. Brakes needed some fine tuning but they feel good on my short driveway.

Started to put the new tank in the '51 but it requires a 5 bolt sending unit rather than the new 6 bolt i just installed in the old tank. Oh well. While waiting for the new unit i started cutting the cab off the s-10 in anticipation of finding a cheap '40's cab to use. I realized this is the FOURTH body now i have cut off over the years with plans to replace with and old one.
