’52 Ford, block party

DSCF7569 DSCF7572 DSCF7573Today we pulled the hood out from the ’52 Ford truck. Paul, the new guy, blocked out the slick sand to show the low and high spots. Once that was done, we started applying filler to smooth it all out. The fun really begins then. Lots of blocking with long blocks to ensure a panel that is as flat and straight as possible. Chris was feeling left out, so he joined in the fun. We spent the afternoon on this and should be able to do more tomorrow and Friday. Hopefully now with another person, we can keep these restoration projects moving a little more often. Stay tuned.

Maxima update

DSCF7574 DSCF7575The Maxima received a new radiator and condenser today. Both were removed and Chris re-installed the new ones. The A/C was recharged and new coolant in was added. All systems were then checked out to be sure everything was working properly. Tomorrow the new bumper and fender comes in. With a little luck, we can get the fender trimmed out, installed, prepped for paint and painted. It will be a full day, but Can happen if the parts come in in time.
