    I get that, but I don't want to do the work to get there - metal work is like baking but just working with harder dough

    • drill time

      though this kept distracting me

      welded


      the difference between a 64 and all the rest of the generation's frames

      time to straighten this a bit

      • The 'Vette looks good! Nice shade of silver.

        • an old friend is back.... I must get the frame painted before it gets too cold (and hopefully the underside and firewall)

          • I was wondering when you were painting this.. Getting cool nights..

            • so the Corvette wasn't coming back tonight so I figured I'd move forward on the wagon
              I need to paint the frame, so first blow the dirt off with a pressure washer

              done and done

              smooth the welds on the frame


              but wait, look what got home...


              doesn't matter, tomorrow I'll set it up to paint the frame

                • screw it, I'm putting the 50 Buick's motor in this.... it will get a 320 but the twin turbo 430 is going in this.... haven't decided whether or not to use the built turbo 400 I have for it (with a gear vendors) or adapt the 4L80e... either way, the 430 may eventually end up in the Sedanet, but it just makes too much sense to put the 455 in my wagon. now the LS doesn't have a home but I have some thoughts about that as well... who knows, it may power the Rover that I'm going to build for my wife....

                  • I'd love to see you tackle an LS in a Rover, people have done it, but their documentation is...let's just say lacking.

                      I don't find an applause emoji or I'd throw that in there too. A GS wagon!
