This fish now has gills! I'm going to play musical cars today and get Crusty back on the lift for brake and fuel line installation as well as exhaust. More engine bits installed, and those yellow battery caps will go on a removable cover I'll make just so the battery doesn't look so aftermarket. Original radiator pressure tested with no leaks, amazingly!

Found an NOS rear speaker harness since mine was missing that should be here today, then I can install the drivers seat and get the carpet secure which will wrap up the interior. Moving right along!

Cheers
Dave

Hey Dave, don't mess up the patina on the fenders with all that junk parked on them...



Great stuff, Carry on

Thanks men! I'm moving right along with brake lines, fuel lines, and exhaust! More factory markings found which I knew from other mopars, but still cool to see: left drum white/green paint blop, right drum green paint blop only, brake center pivot mount yellow daub, and a few others. Love finding things like this!

Been a long time since Crusty has had an exhaust underneath, and those old wheel cylinders were 100% solid white dust inside!

Up next will be the tank, master cylinder, and remaining front lines along with new shoes on all corners!

More to come...

Cheers
Dave

Awesome as always Dave. Four wheel drums on that? Yikes.

Thanks, Mark! Yes, 4-Wheel drum, but they’re 11x3 and 11x2.5 which are big enough to stop a Sherman! Well, after the massive fade, of course.

And thanks Admin for flipping my photos around when needed! The new picture resizer app thing won’t let me flip them around

More soon!

Cheers

A bit of a tangent, what are you going to finish your garage walls with?

The side walls are going to be tongue and groove pine like the ceiling in the barn and my small shop. Those walls will hang neon signs and such. The back wall and wall around the mezzanine will be drywall and painted. Black steel railings up the stairs and across the top.

Of course, Pizza oven and five beer taps on the hand made mahogany bar with Hemi engine blocks as stools. Ok, maybe not all that, but it’ll be a “museum” like shop that is really meant to stay clean for reassembly after paint. No fabrication and no dirty work!

Cheers
Dave
