…….it’s all Janies fault…..Well she would say of course it’s my fault for once again starting to try and wind up the prepellar on my plane too tight plus all of the excitement happening……stop that you fool! Do a little of this.at a place we Floidians rarely go…..it’s one of the tourist resorts we down here have set up for the Snow Birds .they have somehow ejected mostly all the flying and crawling insects from this compoundand that perfect manicured putting green you set up your recliner chairs on is the finest, most lush astroturf I’ve ever seen! The plants all seem to be real but I’m not used to seeing Palm trees that tall with moss and ferns growing on the south side of the trunk……. Makes we wonder……
Yeah so no GMC ‘s here….no grease, no car parts of any kind, its unnerving to me!
So lets reconnect a bit with a few things that went on last week:The new single fuel tank is in Osberto’s coach. Still running a cab…..that’s fine….. His steel tanks were rusting clogging. Up filters all the time plus the double venting on the tanks lets it fill well. His coming off the lift though means getting into a project that’s been patiently waiting for the lift.
A fresh roller cam motor and Monster transmission is getting ready to find a new home in Jeff M. a…..new…..to him…..coach and others in the future. Mutcades now is completely functional….cooling system solved….and is ready to perform its mission in life.and besides a machine that will mess up everyone’s chiropractic neck alignment, the guys will shortly rotate 3 …….I think different motor/tranny combinations into this “check out stand” (@ a 3 hour process) so now we can run in the entire drive train together BEFORE spending the estimated 30 hours R&R labor time to put the pair into the coach properly…..and drive it around IN the car!…..We had Mutcades at the Tallahassee GMCMI convention 6 months ago and I know I’ve thrown in snipits of this thing but it’s taken this long to truly make this. 450SL into what we’ve been shooting for.
So all of you guys with motors in here…..our main tool is ready for service…..hey youall, watch this!.The Argosy and Airstream trailer projects are winding upThe Airstream is a complete interior build out…syay tuned for details as this project comes together.and the 79 Jeep CJ actually LOOKS like a Jeep!His green 78 Ford 150 sold (a fast sale…Elvis has already left the building) and left this week so there needs to be another outlet for his additional creative energies We have a Survivor project about ready to leave the building.amother one gets to the back of the mechanical Q and the beat moves on….
.That’s tomorrow….for the rest of the day it’s more of this…….even a blind squirrel gets a nut once in a whileSee ya tomorrow…….and if get used to this send lawyers, guns and money!………..
