Haven't been feeling well lately, but I took this time to order some small items I needed to finish the frame off. We hope to get back to it soon. We want the hard stuff done before it gets hot outside.

Waiting on some small tools and metal to come In so I can make the final burn ins on the frame.

So I decided to turn my attention to the amc360 at first I was gonna reman the heads, all new gaskets, new cam kit, springs, lifters, double roller chain , new chain cover new Intake and carb.

But since money is tight and the engine runs good we will just drop it in as is.

Problem was a broke header bolt, broken off down in the head I first welded a small washer to it carfuly not weldin the bolt to the head, then i welded a nut to the washer and took my time easing it out. Took about 30 minutes not to bad and now I don't have to pull the head and pay a machine shop to do it.

It's funny how the easiest jobs can turn out very difficult, and the tough jobs can turn out very easy.

And I'm stupid, non ferris metals is metal without iron.

Needless to say the bad saw cut 1/16 of am inch before the blade was spent.

I used the chop saw with metal cut of wheel to cut what I needed it was tedious and difficult to keep the angles straight and accurate.

I tacked up some supports to the frame and I'm getting close to final burn in.

Some parts showed up. These will be altered some before bolting on In Order to fit the wheel base better. I might also add flares.

I got a new grill in as well.

Late night start, but my brother Inlaw, Rod Whitaker came over to start the final welds, he finished up the front end and a few roll cage tie in points, Monday he will finish weld the rear spring stays.

Thanks Rod.

She felt like using the flap disc and wire wheel. I wanted to apply stripper one more time but she wanted to use the power tools.
