Is it within your fabrication limits to make end pieces that turn it into a full width bumper?....even if it is just lighter weight sheetmetal.

i think it is. and the more i contemplate it the more i like the idea. The hardest part to fabricate left is the sheet metal that covers the spot where the old blinkers were. Im getting braver with this as I go and gain more and more confidence.

today is a trip to the bone yard. I am getting the shifter and trying to find the wheels. I cant understand how some of you guys work 40 hour weeks and still get so much done on your builds. I wish I had your energy.

I try to do a little every chance I get, sometimes even if is is only cleaning up after myself. Still I know what you mean about having energy. If you count my comute to work I invest about 50 hrs a week in my job.

Just try to get SOMETHING done EVERY day. Even if it is only taking a measurement, writing down a list of things to buy next time you're out, or just sanding something back to prep it for welding.
If you are doing something every day, the project will always be moving forward. Even if they're only little tasks, that's 30 little tasks a month.

ok, a little work on the shifter and tranny today. not much, but some. more will come when the paint is dry. the shifter pic was taken way to soon, it will be cleaned up and made much nicer before it is attached to the tranny.

ok. heres an idea ive been kickin around for awhile. I want to take a set of stock IHC valve covers, chop them out,( ull see the line where i want this) and do the same with a set of stock chevy ones. weld them together so I can have the cool International script on my small block 327. I have never welded metal that thin. Think Im gonna farm that out for sure. Any ideas about this?
