I normally work on my junk at the shop on fridays but I had to spend the day fixing my fuck up with the shop truck.
I thought I,d shoot some photos before I dirtied the place up doing bodywork.

Steve, thanks !  I haven't seen a V-6 in a deuce in years, glad to see someone thinking out of the box.  Looks like your 3-w is in for some work, what is the plan there ?

The v6 roadster is for Ken,s daughter.
I drove it in bare metal and it had more power than I thought it would.
After 6 trips to Bonneville,my 3W is in for a tidy up.
Shiny paint,Upholstery,New w/shield frame and running boards,Dropped heavy axle etc,etc

Wish my garage was that neat right now. Too many projects on this car & I have shit scattered everywhere.
Ha ha-   my 3 1/2" mandrel exhaust & mufflers are also sitting on floor all new ceramic coated & wrapped up.
Along with my headers wrapped up too. Add to the floor & counter mess...... my trans & converter, the trans cooler w/ fan, the oil pan & pickup, 2 sets of seats, new Hurst Quarter Stick shifter, new alternator & boxes of other crap.
I know I'm going to loose or misplace something.

It isn,t really that tidy
We have 2 storage rooms full of parts we arn,t using at the moment so there is no stuff just laying around in the shop.
