The 200s on the front in the pic are 14s on S10 GM discs. My 71 Cougar has 14s. I makes sense that some of the bigger brakes will need bigger wheels, but these seem to work. I'm still sticking with the slots for this project.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

Maybe that was just for my set up. But they're parts from 3 or 4 different vehicles now.

No that's not correct. Some S-10s came with 14" wheels. You can fit 14's made for disc brakes, but you can't fit 14's made for drums (say 64 impala stock steel wheels, tried that and it doesn't work). The 14's made for drums don't clear the calipers.

Yeah it was a comment made by some of my suppliers. My set up is using Ford disks on a Ford axle with Chevy calipers and it won't fit behind a 14" wheel.

I've got a set of old 14" slots, for what ever reason they fit over disc brakes, at least the ones on my 33 Pontiac with the I beam axle and GM calipers.

Finally found some motivation, and finished welding up the radiator mounts.
Then I put the radiator in and put the grille in, and sorted out the adjustments. It has to sit just a little crooked to miss all the stuff in the way. I repeated this process at least five times before it worked right. Had to shorten the support rods, and thread another half inch on them. But now it looks like a conventional installation if you don't look real close. The chain pulls the grille back so the hood will hit the pin.

I'll likely have to pull it apart again before the final installation, but now I know it fits.

Pic 2 is my latest distraction. 7x10 Chinese mini lathe. I got it to work on pool cues, but something tells me that it will bite into some steel before long.

My cue is fine, thank you very much. The only issues it has is operator error.

I do repairs on cues that I have for sale, or other peoples cues. This will expand my capability. And hopefully make me a couple bucks.

I also have a plan to make an adapter to use my tubing bender wheel handle on my bead roller. Thank you for that little idea, Sir.
