Arrow progress

l've been working trying to get the brakes up to good working order, put on new rear shoes and ran all new lines from the paportioning valve.
have new master cylinder to put on and then start bleeding the brakes.

l went to the parts store, told them what l needed, thru the box of brake shoes in the truck. got home put on one side, reached in the box for the other side and only one shoe shows me with even new stuff, ya need to look and make sure it's all there

other than that just been fooling around with the odds and ends that always seem to pop-up.

my visior is on it's way here and l will up date on that soon,

Lightbulb garden parts on a rod?

WHEELBARROW;

we used a old wheelbarrow for the fire wall recess. had the right curves and saved a lot of fabbing on making all the bends to fit proper. about half way thru, still have to do the floor pans.

GARDEN HOSE;

old garden hose works great to wrap lines that are not near a heat source. keeps from rubbing holes thru the lines and proctects them from debris hitting and damaging stuff.

Awesome build man, subscribed and watching. I hope you don't mind, I'll probably steal some ideas for my 52.
I'm very sorry for your loss. As a reverse, I lost my dad just over 3 years ago. We were wrenching buddies, him and I built the 454 I used to race. Miss him dearly, now that I'm older and have close friends with younguns, I couldnt even imagine. Keep up the good work, and if it was myself I'd go red. I love the patina, but as it wa your sons favourite colour, I would do it.

Thumbs up progress

the wheather was decent today l got my butt outta the house and did some more work on Jimmy's truck.

drive shaft was moved upward 3'' when we C-notced the rear frame and moved the rear-end to the top of the springs to fix the driveshaft angle, this caused the driveshaft to contact the middle cross member when we bounced on the rear bumper. so to fix the driveshaft travel when the rear-end moves up we C-notched the middle crossmember. the shocks are fine and allow 3-4" travel, which l think is perfect.

we finished the middle cross-member's C-notch to clear the drive shaft travel today. then l spent two hours figuring out that the exhaust still needs some minor tweeking to fit. this weekend my buddy who welds said he hopes to get the driver side cab floor/firewall finished or at least close.
