  1. This one i have never seen. Interesting.
  2. The glue application did NOT hold.l So need a good weld then a new tunnel plate also welded in. Maybe this week. I’m slowly making progress, not easy for me anymore. So I done one or two things each day.
  3. The news of my demise is greatly exaggerated. I’m still active but much slower. I gto bit by a tick in Maine last may and ended up with lyme infection. Today I’m about 30% of what I was 18 months ago. The two big issues are chronic fatigue and very low energy level. I now get in about 3 hrs of shop time per day and if that is highly strenuous then Im down for a day. But I’m slowly gaining and will try’ to finish and sell what I have except the truck. My best to all of you. PF
  4. Mine has a lot of history First I dicoverd the original paint was solid so i kept it. Was a beautiful truck, then it was toasted in my shop fire so I cleaned it again and covers it with clear satin. But that is not holding well. I like patina, all flat, go slow.
  5. I just bought this for $50. It matches my truck.

  7. I have three sisson chokes from parts car i bought. PM me and one of them may be yours at a fair price. I’m down sizing so things wlll go.
  8. EMPI is a kit body on a VW pan (frame). I bought this as a project with my grandson, he was not interested, so I built it for me. I paid $10 for the frame, without a rear axle and engine.
  9. I read where metal bonding is stronger than a weld, so ‘glued’ a plate over the break in my EMPI frame. If this is a mistake, I can still weld.
