I forget the brand but it's mainly due to the fact it wasnt in a down draft. Plus who knows if the temp, gun pressure and all that was right..

I know it has been a long time since I have posted any updates, but between work and this car I have had my hands full. For those of you who are interested here is a photo update of the things I have done in the past months. Getting close to getting a rolling chassis back which means almost time for motor install.

Thanks, It is a very clean rust wise, but it was very dirt so it took a while. I basically undercoated where there was existing undercoat and along the rails to be uniform. The rest is just cleaned. Once it is fully done and I can get it on a lift I snap a shot of the entire underside.

any bicycle sitting that close to a work in progress as yours makes me extremely nervous. Looking good! - BC

So I am finally getting back to my T and this site! It has been some time since I have done any work to it. Life kinda got hectic and it had to be put on hold. Currnetly balancing time and $$ between the T, fixing my bike from the wreck, and my daily Lincoln LS.

Anyway this is this weekends project:
Wire in fuel pump, and install gas tank and filler.
Install A-arms, rear sway, rear struts and springs.

I am still figuring out the rear disc conversions (hoping George gets back to me)

Current hiccup is that I have seemed to mis place the large nuts that bolt the strut to the strut mount, anyone have any laying around I could get?

Image
I hope to have more frequent updates soon.

I got a little more done this evening on the T. I finished wiring in the new weatherpack connectors so that I can run the grand national fuel pump hot wire kit. I also got the pump all assembled and put in the tank and the tank is ready to install tomorrow. I hope to have the tank and lower control arms and possibly the struts all installed tomorrow. Here are some pics from this evening:
