  1. In preparation for the upcoming patch panels I got myself some new toys in the form of shinker/strecthers. These are the Hazard Fraught variety so grain of salt, but they should suit my needs. First impressions are that the handles that come with them are at least 6" too short so you really have to lean into them to get any results out of them. I'm in the process of making a vice mounted stand for them which will include a foot pedal attached to my bench. Hopefully that'll provide all the leverage I need. Anyway, results from two passes on the shrinker, first at full deepth (did next to nothing) second at half. I've also started laying out my plans for patches. At this point I'm pretty well decided on deleting the fresh air towers. Since I'll be going with an aftermarket heater box there isn't much use for the passenger side one and all they do beyond that is attract rust. Plus side is that I'll no longer have a need for the cowl vents so I can fill those as well.
  2. So it begins. After a little clean up. I tried to save myself a 100 or so spot welds and cut the cowl along the break line under the windshield frame, but I may end up drilling them anyway to get the rust out of the seam. Just a question of how far down the rabbit hole I want to go.
  3. Took the truck out to vintage bike night. Seems I wasn't the only one with that idea.
  4. After much procrastination I've gotten back to work on the 66. Passenger side torque box is in. Still need to do a little dressing of the welds, but it's in. Shiny picture to prove. Passenger side didn't fit near as nice as driver's side, some of which may have something to do with my prep work, some of which I think comes down to the box itself. Once I finish dressing the welds it'll be on to the dreaded cowl.
  5. Not your typical sighting, but pretty cool in my book.
  6. Finally got around to actually finishing the front valance. Naturally I waited until the week of SCT and rushed the body work. Looks good enough from about 15 feet.
  7. Ok now I'm really done with this project for a while.
  8. So, the old bars were at such a steep angle that the master was leaking out the cap and getting low enough to make the brakes weak. So, style aside I decided to go ahead and swap them, very nearly regretted it. Now my cables and brake lines are too long, but they're comfortable and look much better. Pic of finished product to come during daylight.
  9. Slowly getting myself back into working on the Mustang. As mentioned before I made the filler panel for the driver side torque box. Before Super dark after. Then I got to work separating the passenger side. Will need to do some trimming to get it in around the inner rocker and then I can actually start getting it welded in next week.
  10. Ended up replacing the master over rebuilding, which could be related to me poking a hole in the diaphragm while attempting to get it over the Piston. I did manage to find an original seat locally and after slapping a new cover on it got it installed. I even managed to find a way of putting mustang parts on it by securing the seat cover with a bit of the old wind lace. Not pictured, but I did actually get some work done on the old mustang, just got the filler panel made for the front of the inner rocker, but it is something at least.
  11. Put about 60 miles on her today. Runs/rides nice. Sounds good, but extended periods at 4k rpm lead me to think I'll pick up some helmet speakers.
  12. Honda's attempt in the early 70s at beating 2 stroke bikes. Wanted a V8 rules said could only have 4. It was notoriously unreliable and only managed to complete a few races before they scrapped the program.
  13. Turns out the hardest part of replacing motorcycle tires is getting the new tube valve stem in place. Otherwise the old tire came off almost toolless and the new one went on with very little effort. I did go ahead and give the wheel a shitty paint job to help disguise how pitted it was.
