OK Tim...

Made it down to Montana today to pick up some parts. Smog pump is back from Bill Hodel, the rebuilt water pump and starter are now here, and so are some important fasteners along with a few new replacement parts. I'll need to paint the radiator and water pump before getting busy with the car later this week. Lastly, I've picked up another set of Firestone Wide Oval Radials that will be used as drivers for this car while the original wheels are stored for shows and such. Once things are cleaned up and detailed under the car, this stash of parts will start going on and I'll follow that up by hanging the Gardner exhaust which has also arrived. It's like an early Christmas with all this stuff timed for December says my wife.

Guess it'll be socks and a lump of coal for Christmas as she says my spending is done now.

Starting the project off right with a new shop tool to make working on the car a little easier and a little safer. Yesterday I picked up an SJ-35 sliding 3500-lb lift jack for use with 4 post lifts. It'll make lifting the car a little easier for suspension work and changing wheels and tires. The thing weighs about 300 lbs and was a bit of a challenge to offload by myself and slide into the rails of the lift, but nothing an engine crane and some pry bars wouldn't manage. Just got it squared away on the lift and will start using it today. These sliding lift jacks are pretty slick if you plan to use a 4 post lift for working on your car.

First item today was to see how the TT's and the new Radials look on the car. These are the drivers I will use to help the car handle a bit better than it did with the bias ply wide treads. I'll see how the arm strong results are come spring and if warranted, I may add power steering to the car. More changes in the days and weeks ahead.
