ya, remember that nasty tear on the back of my roadster? it was f'd up. so we went searching my parking lot for sheetmetal. Anybody remember all those "A" fenders I had? if you cut out a part of the drivers side apron, turns out that little armpit that is surrounded by side apron, runningboard and fender makes the perfect patch panel for my rear quarter when flipped upside down and backwards. thanks to pinstriper and the beatles for teaching me some metalworking. turned out nice. better than we could have imagined. pics soon

I might be looking for a Y-block if the price is right.  Actually would only need a good block (standard if possible), rods, heads, good crank (standard if possible) oil pan and flywheel.  Or maybe a complete runner ( good condition?) Need one for my F-100. Don't need it right now but since it was brought up.....
...And if you call in the next 20 minutes, cause we can't do this all day...

The local Swedes chapter met on wednesday night (boris, pinstriper, myself). My vote for our loose organization was "Norwegian Mafia," but in the end we decided tongue in cheek satire was more appropriate than ethnic pride. Pinstriper modified my dash and made an insert from scratch, I mounted my rear bones to the xmember which was installed in the frame, and boris didn't build me a decklid, but provided motivation by staring at my car in disbelief all night long. Apparently my car body is what they call "rough". Who knew?
The Hamm's flowed like honey and the menthol Swisher Sweets competed with the rust and silica abrasive dust to shorten our lives as quickly as possible. And the conversations. . . . truly intellectual. In the end, we were a little dumber and two steps closer to making the yet unnamed model A ready for the road.
