  1. Upgrading a 50 Chrysler

    If you have welding/fab skills, motor swap is easy. Cherokee rear end is good, basically weld new spring perches and done deal. Simple fab stuff. Good luck and have fun.
  2. Old Mopar Junk yard near Sacramento, ca

    I've bought parts from Brian. Fair prices. When are you coming this way? Turlock swap meet is the 27th and 28th of Jan. Great swap meet, huge. I usually only go Saturday but you need both days to see everything. Good luck.
  3. 291 Hemi/trans

    Hot hemi heads sells adapters for a lot of different trannys for your hemi.
  4. Attaching postless name plates

    Double sided tape.
  5. Using Engine ID Number to Title Car

    I've had no problems at all registering cars and motorcycles with a bill of sale and/or statement of facts. The DMV here doesn't use the engine number although it will be on the title. If you are missing the VIN or body number, the CHP will issue you a blue sticker with a number they assign you. Last time I did this, I registered a kawi 2 stroke triple that sat since 83. Dude lost the title at some point. DMV ran the VIN, inspected the bike, and for 95 bucks gave me plates and a title. Really not that difficult.
  6. Paint finish

    I paint for a living. I can say from 25+ years of painting it's everything from good bodywork to prep and final detail. On really nice stuff, I put 3 coats of clear, sand with 600 wet then 3 more coats of clear. Then I sand and buff. Basically, a shitload of hard work gets you deep shine.
  7. Using Engine ID Number to Title Car

    Get a bill of sale and a statement of facts from the seller. At most, the DMV will have you bring the car to a CHP office for verification. If you don't have a VIN, the CHP will give you a blue sticker with an assigned VIN. It's hit or miss with the DMV here, Some clerks are very knowledgeable.
  8. P20 fender welting shape

    Weld the rear fenders to the body. That's what I did to mine. I am going more of a custom route though.
  9. Body work

    I do paint and body for a living so this is regular every day stuff for me. If you are removing panels like rockers, a spot weld cutter is nice. Drill bits work too, depends on how much you money want to invest in tools. Cut off wheels on either electric or air operated tools are best for cutting out ares of rust. Also, get some tech clamps for when welding the panels back together. I buy them from Eastwood but I believe harbor freight sells them too. They hold the pieces together great and give you a perfect gap. Good luck and remember not to rush your welding. Move around and allow the metal to cool in between.
  10. wet blasting

    I do paint and body for a living. We typically use pladtic chips to blast the paint off. Then all seam sealer/fillers are removed by hand. After all metal work is done, we glass blast then straight to epoxy primer. Many years and many card done this way with great results.
  11. 1948 Plymouth Rat Rod

    What's a rat rod rod...............All I see is an old Plymouth.
  12. And ironically, your name is nonstop, haha.
  13. New to the group

    Depends on what strict budget means. Anything you do is going to cost a lot. Building a flat six isn't cheap either. An inline chevy in that car just doesn't seem right, but if it can be made to run, I'd stick with that. It will be your cheapest option. I ride too but I'm partial to Italian machines. I have yet to see a Harley go around a corner like my Ducs and Aprilias.
  14. Need help

    T5 and cherokee 3:55 rear end.
  15. Running without inner/outer fenders

    I always move the battery in every car I do to the trunk. Nothing cleans an engine compartment up like relocating the battery. As far as the solenoid goes, maybe make a temporary bracket and mount it to the engine.
