October will be the month that the '66 will be all one piece and a functioning truck. That's special enough.
I got into the Chevelle a little today. I thought I was gonna get both of the fenders blown in and back on the car. It turns out that they need a ton more work than I thought and I'd rather fix them off the car. I got the metal work done on the passenger side and most of the cellulite pounded out of the metal. The last guy to do the body work was NOT a perfectionist. He got it sorta-kinda close and troweled on half a gallon of bondo. I spent a good bit of time getting the metal a LOT closer. I still have to strip the rest of the mud, but all the thick nasty stuff is taken care of.
Well, well, well. Another month gone. It's good for Rich, but it's kinda depressing for me. Time is slipping by too fast. I HAVE to get two of these major projects done before the weather gets bad. The Chevelle and the blue '66 have to be together and resemble vehicles this month. I seriously need to get the C-Cab chassis started.
I had another Ford truck dream last night. A few of us were working in some abandon rail yard doing God-know's-what, and I found a dentside dually in an old pole barn on the property. It looked factory, but the bed kinda resembled a wrecker bed, but with no boom. The sides were wood, but the dually flares and bed floor were steel. It also seemed to be a little wider than a factory dually. It looked really cool. Maybe I'll build something like it when I catch up around here.
Rich, I'm not sure what was going on, but I remember handing tin up to you to close in a huge storage rack to make it a garage. Bob was there too, along with a couple of my other friends from Pennsylvania. I saw the truck sitting in another building and went to investigate. That's when I woke up.
It was the same faded red that big red is, and I was thinking about getting Larry's dentside wrecker with our tax return money right before bed, maybe that's where it all came from.
