Here’s a little project I’ve been working for the past month in my very small amount of spare times.
Fabricated an engine test stand, it’s not finished yet still needs some gauges and wiring.
The engine test stand is finally finished, Saas gauges fitted, all wired up and ready to go.
Mocked it up with an old block I had in the shed.
All I need now is to build that engine…happening soon.
It has been a long journey to get to here and I have had two projects successfully come to fruition today. First up successful first run of my new engine built here in my garage, second running that engine successfully on the engine test stand I built here also.
Very happy and keen to get it installed.
Picked my next project today 1969 with lots of options and has not been molested
The fun begins again
The fun begins
4 hours of stripping with a heat gun and peeling of the paint
No surprises yet
Had a good afternoon, Floody and I looked at how to put on the straps and lift the body off.
Next thing we knew the body was off and sitting on the Dolly.
Already to clean up and get rid of surface rust
Wish I had a sandblaster for the small parts
Frame is back from sandblasting
Now the fun part PAINTING
That job is done
Move onto the next one
I have alot of parts to Sandblast for the 69
Went to Bunnings and bought a $59 Sandblaster
Made up a cardboard booth complete with perspex folding window, LED lighting and an exhaust fan
Makes it easy to get big and small parts inside and recycle the garnet
Going to compete with China, patent pending
Finally after 3 months have a completed rolling chassis.
Every nut bolt cleaned and painted, diff reconditioned, motor rebuilt, trailing arms, power steering, all new suspension bushes and bearings.
Thanks Ron and Greg for your help.
