RE: what did you do in your garage / shop and or driveway today ?


Digging away at the Strato Chief wagon, stripping it. The complete manual trans conversion is out now and the entire dash assembly. Diff is loose, just need to tap the 4 bolts out for the control arms and the diff  will fall out. Little bit more out of the interior including maybe removing the tailgate manual window regulator setup, not sure yet. Otherwise maybe the top end off the 6 cylinder, some misc nuts and bolts etc, then off to the shredder.

It had a brand new exhaust system, complete. Front to back! Anyone need a perfect exhaust for 65 and up B body 6 cylinder? It will be VERY cheap! Like 50 bucks cheap...

I wonder how that exhaust fits on a 67 beaumont winter car?   i should probably buy it from you even if i have to modify the rear part,  the front pipe should be very close to the same.   Sold!

 I'll try to bring it next time I'm in your area Dave.

I'm hoping to have some other stuff off the 6 cyl for you tomorrow as long as my day goes as planned.

 Tons of fun Mark! It has yielded some nice stuff. Some it I knew before I got it and some of it has been a surprise. The unblemished, uncracked but super-faded dash pad was one of those surprises. It's perfect other than the extreme fading. 

It still has the date coded and unique Canadian Pontiac ignition coil  and the alternator is still the original date coded piece as well. 

Other than the power wire to the radio and the speaker wires, the wiring harness under dash and under hood is completely unmolested. 

Oops, unmolested except for the squirrels chewed the red wire to the alternator!

I was browsing on Facebook Marketplace yesterday morning, and found 4 doors with power windows and power locks.

And in the exact color of my newly acquired 2007 f150 supercab. Rust free and the guy threw in the hood.

my new to me F@rd has never had this much attention. My son is getting remorse that he sold it. As its getting fixed up to what he wanted to do but never had the time. 
( I use this truck to pull my Pontiac on a trailer to the local dragway)

Back window had been out before and they used urethane to put it back in. Real bugger getting it out but no rust in the frame. they put the urethane right over the dirt and it wasn't even ceiling up against the frames so the water was just pouring into the trunk. replaced the trunk rubber, and the roof rail seals. Glass guy will come Monday and put window back in. Package tray had damage so replaced that too

After a hard day at the office, time to slip into something more comfortable biggrin

Prepping for the rear brake build.

Just copy and paste wink

007a.jpg

All new parts going on but after I took the drum off, I had to shake my head.

Everything here is like new.

Note, the brake padding on the old stuff measures 7/32" but the new AC Delco Professional pads measure at 6/32" confuse

The left prefab brake line was too short and the right line was too long, worked them to fit with that true 1969 bracket.

I massaged them to work.

Great yard art, but not always admired by everyone.
