Last of the TD

Tuesday, October 5th, 2010

Sadly the TD is moving on to a new owner.


Hoses and Tubes

Sunday, May 3rd, 2009

New hoses, clamps, and tubes should keep this system running for a long time.


Pump and rust

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

This car was still running the original fuel pump, it has been a problem the whole time so a new one will fix that.  The main coolant tube will also need replaced, rust has done a lot of damage here.


Battery cables

Wednesday, August 13th, 2008

New battery cables to replace the ones the lead acid battery had corroded.


Rusty watery mess

Saturday, April 26th, 2008

The rear head casting plate has rusted through and started to squirt water out the center of it. The plate has been sandblasted and filled with JB Weld.


Lake shore drive

The new tires are on the car and the car got out for its first long drive.


Tires mounted

Friday, April 18th, 2008

The new tires are mounted and ready to go on the car.


Up on stands

Tuesday, April 15th, 2008

The tires are no longer round and will need replaced. While I have the tires off I will sandblast and paint them.


Fenders and lights.

Sunday, April 6th, 2008

The fenders and lights have been bolted on and the car is now running and driving.

This car has had the fenders removed but seems to be very complete and in good condition.
