Default What did you do to your classic today?

Saw this on another board and has been fun to participate in, plus it gets you motivated. Post updates and pictures if you can.

I pulled the rear out in preps for my mini tub project. Tomorrow I'll pull the gas tank and get to scrapping undercoating off. I also had to buy a new jack and picked up a swivel stool (great investment btw).

I drilled out the spot welds between the LR quarter panel and the trunk pan drop off so that I can section in a new drop off. When I was cleaning up the area for a small patch I noticed a few pinholes.... one thing leads to another.

I also removed the leftover tape and adhesive from my Shelby hood left from the packing tape affixed bubble wrap protecting the 4 corners of the hood.

Last, but not least, I lamented on the fact that I'll need to remove my repro RH door and whack the crap out of the metal adjacent to the lower hinge to get the bottom of the door to go in farther as well as weld up the edge to fix the non-matching gap along the front edge.

I built a bolt in temporary Kmember for my 65 to hang the Corvette C4 lower control arms.

I have the same jack. Super light weight and the light comes in handy.

I like it, my last jack ( a no name brand) kept blowing the o-rings and then finally broke the pump shaft some how. At least this one has a warranty.

That's some serious fabrication!

While waiting for the door skin for the r/s door shell I removed the door hinges & pulled them apart to rebuild before I hang the repaired door. WOW were they loose, the bushings in the lower hinge were almost gone, I also sand blasted them while they were apart. Now I am just waiting on the rebuild kits.

Confuscious once said........If it don't fit just cut, grind and weld until it does. I might have made that up.
