Yes, the 350 fired yesterday with a carb We did a video but with my “IT” out it may be next week before I get it up. Being a flat tappet motor, running in the cam is an important thing to do so it was done here. 65psi oil pressure, 200 degree water, 1000rpm….. I’ll take that. We’re making a path to the lift as soon as the diesel comes off from it’s final things the 23′ 350 lab rat will go up for it’s install, stay tuned….
JD’s toll booth windows are going in With all the work on JD’s coach, we were unable to hit the target delivery date….. yeah it’s a bummer but I will not spend money to rush a job. It took a good week to lay out the paint layout Iknow it sounds like a small thing…. laying out stripes but brother make sure that tat is something you want on your arm because when it’s there it’s there and it’s the same thing about paint stripes…. it’s gotta be right. I’m proud of the work we’ve done and though timelines are important the finish is more and I just can’t rush that.
We’re reorganizing our workflow to streamline things a bit, so far… 2 days in we are seeing a big improvement. Bout time! Restoration work by it’s nature is imprecise, I mean you never know what you will see…. like these “working” brakes Or this fake rear suspension These beasts are 40 years old with 40 years worth of good intentions…. and we can’t go with that stuff.
It’s the “dog days” of summer here…. hot, humid and then it rains every afternoon ……. this is NOT why we live in Florida ….. hurry up October!
Spent half of my day showing GMC wannabees the 101 on how to pic a good one. Hey it takes time but that too is important.
Stay cool. thank goodness for whoever made AC’s viable… was it Carrier? Whoever it is give that man a gold star sticker….. I love air conditioners this time of year!
OK, gotta make this day the best it can be…. give it a try yourself. Call if you need something and guys and gals, thanks for the support……
