    More very nice work! Those speaker mounts would have been 3 pieces and 3 times as long as yours. Haha

    That Biederman is looking awesome!.

    Passenger door modifications, inner structure added...





    …..speaker mounting ring welded in place and brush painted using SPI epoxy primer..





    In our attempt to finalize all the needed fabrications before getting deep into paint mode, we had some clearance issues to deal with on the Vintage Air bracket for the AC compressor. The initial mockup showed that the upper mounting tab was too close to the tall valve covers we have on the 383 stroker. A half inch spacer under the intake mounting tab gives us about 1/4" clearance, and shows how much we need to modify the water pump mounting tab.














    I didn't have much in the selection of 1/4" flat stock, so the shoulder of a 5/16 bolt was used, first the root pass and then a filler pass.























    Another part checked off the list....

    Time to play catch-up, had a short hiatus in Upstate NY on the St Lawrence river.

    Daytime and sunset:








    I picked up some louver dies that are set up for the press brake but should be the start of a louver press eventually... got both 2" and 3" dies.

















    I also have a couple good friends that understand my tool addiction that both sent me a link to an ad for body tools, especially for the Vise Grips. Here's what I picked up from a retired bodyman, now to keep these quality tools going. VG collection is now over 130.. never enough.





    ...and with the engine brackets back from powder coating, and our new 45* water neck arrived, we were able to get the belts and upper hose all mocked up. The hose we used was a Dayco 72384, made as a lower hose for a V6 Ford Explorer, but it fits this application like a glove...

    Geeze! Your tool holders are nicer than most for sure. I thought you were building some steps for a semi for a minute there.

    Note here she is also skilled in applying the electric tape bandage....









    ….for some reason I don't think three sets is gonna be enough....

    Crikey!
    You must have a die for every conceivable need.
    I've never before seen a collection of that variety and scope.
    Amazing.

    E is quite a young lady! None of that girly, "Oh darn, I scuffed my nail polish!" More like, "OK, that hurt! Where's the tape so I don't get blood on everything!" Gotta love it!

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.

    I hope when this project is done you turn it
    into book form. The complete guide to metal
    finishing . With all the great information, tips,
    links to videos, problem solving, etc. I would
    have paid dearly for it when I first started metal
    work. I still learn from your posts.
    Great story telling Robert!

    Thanks guys!!

    Next job for E was to add some sound deadening to the inside of the door skins...








    Behind each of the speaker mounts we added a section of Dynaliner…








    She did a good job of that, wait until she sees how much more we have to go!
