Sorry to say, not as much as I would like. bogged down with cleaning, painting, repairing and fabricating on the car. How was I to know this would be the 5th wettest year in recorded history , here, in the Ohio Valley? Every friggin' Weekend, here comes a cold rain or snow. And a few downpours throughout each week, just to keep the spirit down. You see, I built the engine last year in my house basement. I have a walkout to level ground. It is down the hillside. The car is in the shop at the top of the grade. I cannot find a dry enough day to go down and get the engine out of the basement. The car is ready and the engine is ready for the car. i need to get a couple of buddies to help me manhandle it out of the basement. Problem is, all my buddies are older and down in the back. I find it hard to leave things "Ratty". There are some things I cannot leave alone, the rear end cover being one. I have a before and after here. At first, I was hip to leaving it...well, Ratty. But I study Grady's car a lot for ideas and I could not take that cover being all crusty. So, ok, maybe semi ratty, ha! I mounted the fuel pressure gauge and several loose end type things, like brake lines and hardware. Mounted a driveshaft loop. Sanded down the roof. Picked up some slapper bars. That kind of stuff. Too boring to post about. I am building Mamma a garage this fall and that has taken my time away from the car. got a hole for the ZL1 hood wiring. Curious 427 crayon mark (not added) I sanded around to see better. Hood pins installed and cool can mounted. If I ever get the engine in its bay. Ill have something to report. Don't cringe because parts are piled up on the fenders, She is rough. Take care all.

Default Ratty Rat Help

Bentley,

Sounds like Jim & I need to make a trip down there and help you with that engine. If I can pry him away from Rat's Nest.

Mike

Mike, would love the company. You and Jim can stop by anytime. We would spend so much time “ bench racing” that we would not get anything done.

Default ratty update

been quite some time since giving a report. The weather has improved considerably, here, in Ohio. It has been a "Ratty" kind of week. Getting a lot of smaller details taken care of and refurbishing some acquired pieces. here is a before & after steering wheel. I think the "rosewood" color came out ok. I also have a sparkly gold "Gasser" type wheel if this does not look acceptable after installed. Traction bars are now white. may make the purists cringe. But if it was good enough for da Grump, it's good enough for me. I just thought there would be too much yellow.

getting close to dropping in the engine. got the front bumper installed, tow tabs, hood pins. Just going down the list and checking off items.Probably can't see the original T3s. Gotta come up with something in place of those Z stripes. Want to get rid of those stripes. That whole area may end up all black?

It is not unusual to find a 50 year old survivor hotrod missing an emblem. I only bought 3 emblems, they are pretty high priced. The good part of the high price is there won't be too many guys making a DH replica. So, suppose the emblem was stolen? With 3 emblems, what to do? We all have seen what is under missing trim or emblems, unfaded, original paint. So I had to replicate that with a little rubbing compound.
