It's a never a dull moment around that house, you've been there, you know.

Cecil was pretty cool though. He didn't speak a lot of english, I don't speak a lot of spanish, it was a fun car ride with a lot of non-committal agreements and charades.

Looks like a super amount of fun.



If it makes you feel any better, my "solid" car continues to get better.
Had taillight housing out hunting a bad connection the other day, and I could see all way down the quarter. Yeah... mud boogers galore. If I ever get to point I wanna do nice paint, its gonna need some serious metal.

Lol, I'm 100% sure mine looks the same way man. I know the driver's rear quarter was replaced. The metal around the wheel well is butchered, looks like I did it.. The amount of bondo that popped off the trunk does not inspire any confidence.

Got a couple minutes to work on the chevelle this weekend, so I figured I'd knock the ugly off the remaining dash items.



My daughter has been calling this car a rust bucket from day one. I have stood vigilante in taking the abuse and fended off all of her verbal attacks.. but I think it may be time to retire the shield and sword. It's hard to ignore when you have rust holes in the ashtray of all things. The FRIGGIN ASHTRAY!?!?!!

Did you know people used to make their own lye for soap making by dripping water through a barrel of ashes?

Who ever first "parked" the car for an extended period of time probably left it full of ashes and they just absorbed all of the moisture out of the air.

No sir I did not know that, learn something new every day. I'm sure it was from ashes soaking up moisture, but dammit man, I just want one piece without rust..

Really haven't gotten time to work in the garage but did carve out a couple hours last night. Started hacking on the steering column, removed the auto selector and gear indicator, cut/formed sheet metal to act as a backer to fill in the holes, then JB welded them in.

This was the hole for the tiny bulb that illuminated the gear indicator.





This was the hole for the gear selector handle.



Have them set up in the house to cure, they were still tacky this morning. Will flatten out the epoxy, then bondo and smooth them out. It was easier than I thought except for cutting the ear off for the selector. Ended up having to use a sawzall because the pot metal gummed up the cutoff wheel. 80 grit flapper disc smoothed it out quickly though.



Figured I wasn't going to get any painting done, so I blew the dust off the engine, disconnected from trans, mounted on engine stand and pulled the valve cover off. Pressed the factory bearings out of the rockers, cleaned them up, then started pressing in the summit trunion captured bearings. Adam let me borrow his tool to do the job, going together like clockwork. Next up is swapping out the new valvesprings, and installing the rumpity stick. (To the left you can see the gear selector handle and turn signal. I cleaned up the turn signal stick w/ 00 steel wool and WD40, was rusted all to hell.)
