Progress despite the heat!

I made some progress the last couple days despite the near 100 degree temps! Got some tires put on some wheels I had and got those mounted to give me a roller, then got the engine installed today. Here are a couple pics,....more can be seen in My garage.

Looks good!
Did you use chassis saver or por-15 on your frame? looks great!

I know you were drenched in sweat! i go out to the garage and sweat just turning the lights on!
Be careful, it brutal out there! I work outside all day or inside in a process building of 130 degrees.
I can't even get motivated to do anything but wish! ready for a little cooler weather...

This week while I was off, I was able to get the engine mounted, clutch installed except for the linkage (waiting on parts), and got the transmission all bolted in.

Started working on drive shaft....got the old universals out and the drive shaft wire wheeled. Started installing the universals and ran into fits and clearance problems, and it was fighting me all the way. Gave it up for the day since it was so hot and I was getting pissed.



Clutch parts due in on Thursday my next day off...hopefully we will get a little cooler weather.

Great progress in that HEAT--be careful. plenty of hot weather here in NC also. about all you can do is work directly in front of a big fan.
