Thanks, it was just a simple way to do it, need to get some thin rubber tube to go over them.

Decided to go with a set of 50 Pontiac tail lights I had. Nobody makes a mount for them since they are meant to go on a flat surface, so I made my own 2 piece mounts, sort of like a can that fits inside the main housing, held on with 2 screws. Also put a 1/4" plate backer to the bedside mounts so they won't jiggle around.
Booted the Packard project outside for now under a tarp, just too congested - a mans shop never seems big enough...

Great job on the bead roller work! Iíve played with the one in Ronís shop and it takes talent to utilize it to its potential. Nice work.

Small jobs today.
Back to the F100 for parts, modified the fuel filler neck to fit in, I don't like having the filler in the bed - may need a new cap tho....
Ever since Bamamav questioned the angle on the steering joint, it's been haunting me - though it did work, it was at the limit of an extreme angle. Got to work and remedied the situation - thanks Bama! (before and after pics)
Made a V shaped front frame spreader bar, also gives me a place to mount the front plate.
Mounted a GM one wire alternator, just a couple spacers and a tweak to the adjusting arm.

Much better angle now ZZ! Doesn't look like it will bind now.
Glad I could be of service!

Knocking it outta the park! Looks like it will be on the road before the snow flies!

I figure a fan shroud is always a good idea, so today I got busy and fabbed one up.



Mr Fink rides again...

I like the wings on the radiator and the bead rolled reflection of them on the firewall
