    Jerry,that's an idea to look in there for.I don't remember them even having clips,I though they were pressed pins?been a long time from last time I rebuilt one.,But the Y-block plug holes are giant size,it should be fairly EZ for me to look inside with a small snake light of some type,I'll look around for one an give it a try,at the very lest it'll be fun to look.

    That is a good idea to use sheet aluminum for the back of the pocket but what kind of glue did you use? I am surprised your car is so light. I know my heavy bumpers add a lot of weight and I have all four fenders (fiberglass) along with a rumble/trunk filled with a folding chair 5 gallons of gas, extra oil, trans fluid, gallon of Prestone, small jack, lug wrench and a bag of tools. My replica '29 with a full back end weighed in at 2800 pounds with me (210 pounds) in it. The SBC 350 should be within 50 pounds of your Y-block so I guess the main weight difference is the 700R4, the bumpers and fenders? Anyway I am just writing to keep the pictures coming. After messing with a glass body I really appreciate the nostalgia of real steel! Despite the weight I am content the total is still less than about 3500 for a 1977 Z28 which I tried to match with the SBC350.

    Don,I don't have any extras yet in my rod,but I will be adding some stuff soon,there is enough room behind my seat back for two folding chairs and things like jumpercables,a few tools,FireX,Fix-a-flat,gas-dip-stick,are things I'll put in there.
    I got a rear view mirror I liked an have made a small home made SS bracket for center of windsheild,only draw back is,I have to resit it if I tillet windsheild out or in.

    Thumbs up New rear tires

     



    Finiely got some new tires on the rear to replace old cracked one I used for the build,they were on browed time,I was lucky the few miles I put on them,but the other day I opened the garage to see one dead flat. Well that was a sign,no more putting off.
    So off to Pepboys with my rims 15x10 alum slots,were our club gets a good brake on $,and got two new rears. Picked them up after lunch. Go home,its raining so just put'm in the garage. Better day next morring,open garage door to see a big bubble sticking out the side of one new tire,back to Pepboys,the guy that mounted them is not there. But manegers is,he take tire off rim an see the guy had ripped the bead all to hell,so give me a new tire. I go home,two days go by,an I deside to put them on the rod and adjust psi to 18 front and 15 rear{ it was at 36 front and 45 rear by pepboys,next morring open garage door to see right rear flat{no the one they fixed,so take that one back too,turns out that guy mounted it with out cleaning dirt off bead,so would slow leakdown. I carefully looked over the bead myself AOK,now all is good. I think when I adjusted psi down=it started leaking from dirt in bead. They fired the guy that did the mounting to start with.

    I've always done all my own artwork myself,yet there are times when a pro fellow artist buddy { Mark Klein, http://2mkd.com/ ] just pop's something on ya,and this was one of those! We'd been talking about carshows an showcards a weekago just as part of are BSing. Here is what he did for me,fantastic nice in deed.
    Thanks very much "Mark the Art" from "The Bat"
    Now to do it some proud,I'll build a small custom stand for the super showcard!
    The photo is a little washed out,so what looks white is shiny gold lettering.

    Wow, that is hand painted? Silk screen? What's his technique?

    He has a plottor/computer controlled plastic sheetcutter,but you need lots of art skills, he has the skills also to hand paint like I did them normely years back,but he has updated vs I'm still doing stuff the old way.

    Great job on the whole car, Bat. A great example of taking an old-time hotrod and bringing it up to date with old-time hotrodding skills.
