Having the speed of an old senior takes for ever to get anything finish since we forget where we just laid a part down.
But when your a young man it can be from having to many girls at once or irons in the fire or is it vehicles play with.
We're all growing old an hope to see your fired up I-6 come a live one day soon.

A dream is a dream until it's been put into motion like you have done an kept at so far well done young man!

Sean actually just sold both of his bumpsides. One a few months back and the other (the patina-looking one with the red stripe) last weekend when somebody gave him an offer he couldn't refuse at the Goodguys show.

Haha, that Bus almost got kicked to the curb and lawyers almost had to get involved! They didn't like how high the bill was, but they did eventually pay. I won't give details but let's just say that it's in the six digits up to this point. They'll be wowed when it's done though.

The '73 Super Beetle has also been winning a lot of trophies at local shows.

Don't worry, that time will come! The motivation comes and goes but it never fully departs. I need to finish this before I'm off at flight school.

>> Okay, off to the garage I go to button up this engine once more! Shouldn't be too bad, just need to install lifters and set my valve lash.

Now there is some darn good Words Of Wisdom. A BIG 2X here also.
I have said in the past years ago now Jackson. I'm as proud of you and your talents like you were my own Son. Like the job you did on the Beetle below. And I'll stand pat on those words.

Please do pop in more often with updates and pics.
SIX digits!? The blank check almost turned to rubber, eh?
Flight school? As in the Royal Canadian Air Force?

Haha, well I may as well give you guys something to look forward to! I'm working on a much smaller budget though, of course.

Almost every car I work on has about a quarter million into it when it's complete. We have zero issue being known as the most expensive shop around. We focus on quality and nothing less. We understand this exceeds most people's budgets but we'd rather chase perfection than appeasement, and despite the costs the jobs keep rolling in.

No, not planning on the RCAF right now but to be honest it would be the smarter decision because I'd always wanted to enlist, and in fact came very very close to a few years ago, and it would be more cost effective to be paid to go to flight school as opposed to paying to go to flight school. Dad is a helicopter pilot and grandpa was an RCAF pilot in the War. It's always been a childhood dream of mine. I love what I do now but I don't want to do it forever. I got into it to learn for myself as a hobby, because it was cheaper to go to school and teach myself to paint my truck than it was to pay someone to do it, and I'm confident in my abilities now and I'm ready to leave. There's always something to learn and I'll miss the opportunities to train, but it's not the life path I want to be on.

I think you ought to really investigate that and consider it again. I never did enlist either. Now I regret that. As Patriotic as I am I have always felt a bit guilty. Now I hang out at The American Legion Post #107 almost every single day. Have become an integral part of that Post. What I say, what I do, what I fix around there, what I build for the Post, etc. This past June I was voted in as the SAL (Sons of the American Legion) 1st Vice Commander. I went from Member all the way to 1st Vice in one step. Talking with all those Veterans, helping all the Vets and their families, and becoming so involved makes me feel even more guilty. But I get all puffy chested proud every time I walk in that Post. But I wish I could be a fellow Legionnaire rather than a SAL member.
You might be money ahead earning a good wage and paying for flight school. But you can't beat the plane you could be flying if you join.
Just my $.02 from my own life's experiences Jackson.

Well Jackson, with your internal inertia, and fortitude, any service branch would be more than happy to enlist you, and I bet you could practically write your own ticket to flight training. The very best pilots are military trained. Of course, I am a bit prejudiced towards the Navy, but all will admit, that landing on a carrier in rough seas, is the ultimate pilot skill, along with flying a rescue "Hair Dryer", (jet helicopter), in arctic gales.

Go for it amigo, while you are young and able...

Just my $0.2 also

A little seat time before you join-up couldn't hurt. Nearly all of the U.S. military jet pilots are officers. The helicopter pilots are a mix of warrants, officers, and a few enlisted. So to fly, you need that degree, to make sure you get selected for flight training.

Quit reminding me of what I already know!! Haha... yes I've always felt guilty for not enlisting, I get it. Who knows, I'm still young and I seem to switch things up often! Not writing it off yet! Got my whole future ahead of me.

I finally found the only photo I took of my cam swap... I was surprised I didn't take more. Normally I do... perhaps my hands were greasy with cam grease. One is better than none though! This thread could use some photos after so long without.

Did you have to threaten the engine with the pistol, to get the cam in? LOL, very nice looking. Both the pistol and the engine.

I think he's letting us know where he got the idea for that engine paint from.
Lookin' Good Jackson. Glad to see your thread pop back up again. Steve (Ultraranger) recently replaced his 240 which "died a violent death" with a 300. Part of that is using the same exhaust manifolds you are. You might check out his thread for how he did his exhaust. Not that you need to copy his, just for some thoughts and ideas.
FYI on your carb. Back in the day I had a 83 Mustang LX with the 302 H.O motor in it. I set up a 85 GT Holley 4180 600CFM carb on it. Ran like a scared rabbit and burned clean enough to pass emissions with #63 jets and a #30 secondary metering plate. #30 won't fit a Holley 4160. Closest thing to it is a #13 plate. You can go richer if you don't have to worry about emissions testing. To see if your 300 is comparable to my 302 it had the following.
Ported and polished cast iron heads.
Stock 83 302 H.O. cam but 1.72 ratio roller rockers. Factory 302s came with 1.6 ratio. So I added lift and duration to the factory profile.
Ford Motorsport long tube headers.
High flow cats ahead of a Flowmaster cat back 2 1/2" system.
Long yellow spring in the 4180's secondary diaphragm's housing.
Ford Motorsport aluminum intake. Which was a re-badged Edelbrock.
3.73 traction lock out back.

Is that a Beretta 92 (M9A3) in desert tan? I remember carrying the first version in the desert.

Thanks for the carburetor information, Jeff. I'll wait until driving this thing to see what it likes and dislikes. This is only a 390cfm carburetor, so it's not going to see as much air as your 600cfm.

The exhaust manifolds currently in use are temporary, so I'm not overly concerned about them. I've instructed my fabricator to do everything with the future in mind, because in the future he will be fabricating manifolds. I want him to make his life easier in the future, and maintain both aesthetics and functions in mind for down the road. As much as performance is a concern, I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to wow people's eyes with all the plumbing.

Yes, that's a Baretta M9A3. Yes I'm allowed to have it and yes I have others like it. Even though I live in a fantastic neighbourhood I don't like working alone at night in my garage without some sort of security. I live in a wealthy area. It's only a matter of time as petty crime has slowly increased over the years. I'm commonly described by my friends as the most American Canadian that they know. If getting a green card wasn't so difficult I'd be probably be right down there in AZ with Garrett and Jeff. I've had that thing for a few months now and only actually shot it for the first time last weekend. Boy, is it ever nice. It's my new favourite. I'm not interested in my Glocks anymore.

Matches my toolbox too.



There's been a delay. My fabrication materials and fittings were supposed to arrive some time ago, but they haven't for whatever reason. I was hoping to send you guys an update already in regards to the progress on the truck, but because of this delay there has been none. I'd like to spend some time tomorrow (err... it's late so... later today) installing the starter and maybe beginning the wire looming that I've been procrastinating on. The items are now expected this week. We shall see.

Oh, and you guys would probably like my hunting rifle as well. Sako 85 Finnlight .308 with a Swarovski Z3 4-12x50.



I want to also show you guys the progress I've made on the '73 Trans Am that I've posted photos of in the past. The owner wanted a modern take on the original fiberglass Trans Am kit. Anything you see in the photos on the exterior sheet metal that's bare steel has been fabricated by me. Push yourself and try new things or youíll never see your full potential. Iíd be lying if I said I felt comfortable going into this project. I was actually not at all looking forward to it, but staying in my comfort zone hasnít gotten me anywhere in life. Still so much to learn, and not enough hours in a day. I'm excited to see the end result. I still need to make the center exhaust and diffuser.







There will soon be progress on the F100, I promise!
