Well guys,  the car is essentially done.  At the end of Feb, I took it back down to Northern Muscle for a final detail job.  After that it went over to Westside Motors in Thief for alignment and AC charge.  And now with this warm weather I have been cruising it around Warren trying to work the bugs out before any big trips this summer (BTTF's and Meltdown Drags).  So far it drives great and rides nice.  I have to change speedo drive gears, but that was expected.  Anyways, we are off to Duluth next weekend for the Motorhead Madness show.

Hit my 1st "Bump-in-the-road".  Right front wheel bearing decided to crap out last night on the way to El-Roco cruise night.  Got it towed back home thanks to a friend / co-worker.  Looks like there was a casting flaw in the rotor, a nice crack developed next to the inner bearing race, and a chunk came loose and took out the outer bearing.  Aren't Old cars Fun???

It is a conversion created by a gentlemen out of northern Wisconsin.  He is Hotrod428 on the HAMB and he sells conversion kits for fullsize Fords and Studebakers.  Essentially it is a Granada rotor with Monte Carlo calipers.  The website is below.  I am really happy with the kit otherwise.  The rotor of course was a chinese replacement from the local Auto Value.

I like it.  I got it really cheap from a co-worker whose dad had it and was upgrading to a proper 4 post lift.  It fits nicely in my shop, a 4 post would be to big for the shop, and I am too chicken shit to drill into my floor for a 2-post lift (hot water lines and all in the floor).  I really like being able to roll it around, even with a car on it.  I am currently using it as an assembly table for the '32 Plymouth I am now building.  I did the same thing with the Merc. Put the bare chassis on it and start building from there.  It is the perfect height for doing stuff like that.
