  1. Well it's been 4 years since I posted this. I ended up buying a new place in 2018. It didn't have a shop but it did have a slightly bigger garage. Fast forward 4 years.. Today I received the engineered plans for a 1920 sqft shop building in my back yard. Next up permits and away we go. 🙂

  2. Got the new MGA head gasket in, valves adjusted, switched over to a Petronix electronic distributor and she's been driving like a dream. Anyone interested in polished stainless steel 320 hubcaps? Jake Makes is doing a run for $350 a set which includes shipping within the US. Here's a few weekend pics a friend took. Shoutout to Aaron from Arizona Classic Japanese Car Club.

  3. With the work pictured below, I've hit a pretty big milestone. To the best of my knowledge, barring some misc. stuff like brackets and bolts snapped off in holes, all rust repair is complete for the chassis. There's still more work to do as far as the aforementioned misc. stuff and more bracing/reinforcement, but the time of cutting big chunks out of the car to replace with new/homemade sections is DONE. Only took ~4 years 🙂 . Finished making the replacement subframe section and welded it on: Didn't aim to make the join seamless, leaving a bit more meat on the we

  5. Just got a call from the venue, we are looking at june 12-13 with camping on the evening of the 11th (friday). They asked me to get a feel for who'd like to come out. No frills just come spend the weekend together with your datsuns! Same deal free swap and all museums open to participants. To my knowledge price point still stands. Please let me know!

  6. Found a night to do some race prep. The Ridge is only 2 weeks away! Jeff fixed the broken door latch and swapped out the main power switch (we were hoping this was the reason our car won't start occasionally) while I swapped in the new fuel pump. The "meth lab" doesn't look any prettier this year but hopefully it works. Fuel starving at PIR was NOT fun. This *may* have had something to do with the original fuel pump failure. Look how much garbage was in there. That was before we tapped it out of the filte

  10. First day of jury duty today, at the local superior court. With Covid all the jurors are serving via Zoom. While connected on the Zoom thing I browsed the video feeds of the other jurors. It was interesting to see how they set up their computer/tablet/phone. One guy has a wall of black storage totes with bright yellow lids behind him. A woman has what looks like a projected scene behind her, like she is in Central Park in the spring with all the trees in bloom. Many people have really messy homes. A couple people are dressed in their Sunday best, while others are in sweats. One guy

  12. Hypocrisy at the highest overt levels....Excuse after excuse as to why one side can and the other side cant. I am ready for something other than "bipartisan" cooperation, because nothing else seems to move these shit stains.

  15. If the market is flooded with oil wouldn't the prices be cheaper ? It's policy from the new administration.A roughly 25% increase in gas prices happened real fast.We had that problem under control for four years.And then Biden happened.

  16. Mine has been trashed ever since my wife kicked me completely out of the garage, it immediately overloaded the shop, so hopefully going to build another 30 x 40 shop next to it so I can get work done again. This one is 30 x 50 that we built in 2012.

  18. After I stripped all the extra metal from the new panels, the rot was cut out and the new panel made and welded together. The finish is near perfect with only a skim coat of epoxy to fill in the small valleys on the weld. I did not weld both sides, only the back side.

  19. Hey Paradime,its pretty chill, so yeah, if it doesn’t drown out people trying to talk to each other I cant see how anyone would be offended.The venue itself is like 60+ acres...If it does we can always deal with it at that point. As far as it happening, I made a promise to you guys to keep it going until folks dont want a show of their own. Attendance will determine that. Im coming up from Phoenix Az this year to do this.

  21. Finally got carpet installed so I could get my heater and cig lighter put back together and wired up. Those are the last puzzle pieces--she's complete and everything works. This was my first car project and am feeling a sense of accomplishment. It's been a 6 year journey and so thankful for everyone on this forum. You've all be generous with your knowledge and spare parts and I couldn't have done it without you.

  26. Back in my "Flatbed Days" we were on the express division of International Transport and never had the luxury of stopping for anything. If roads were closed we had to reroute and keep moving. We hauled jet engines, machinery parts, and so on. One time we picked up a single gear (2000#) from Bucyrus Erie in Pocatello going to an open pit mine in Virginia and went through hell to get it there in 3 days. The only time we weren't in a big hurry was when we had a load like this. an 11 ft. wide half of a Cat rock truck body.
