    Not my car, but my buddy's '63 Dodge 440. The car has been having charging issues for a while. He didn't want to "tear into it", so he let it sit for a few months. I finally convinced him to look at it...I think we've found the problem.

          Picked me up a Ford 8.8 rear with discs from a Exploder today! If anyone wants to pickup a complete 7.25 SBP rear end, let me know!

                Got my new door, trunk, and ignition locks installed. While I was at it I figured might as well replace the ignition switch itself, i mean it was 50+ years old, why not.
                The stainless on the locks looked kinda dull, so I ran them across my buffer for a minute, shined up nice.

                            Stopped by the airport, and put 6 gallons of 100 octane in the tank, and topped it off with some BP 93 in town.
                            Did about a 40-50 mile cruise. It needed it, been sitting, and to many short starts, and not warming it completely up.
                            Haven’t got all the interior work done, still working on the passenger window regulator, and the new door panels.

                                    Finally got around to installing the convertible boot. Went smoother than I was expecting, which is a first I think. Just need some sunshine now to warm it up. IMG_20200223_1544220.jpg

                                      Started parting out my latest buy, a '66 Monaco 500. I may need a hazmat suit, been sitting for 25 years, and cats were in it.

                                          Yeah, it's even the same color as my Polara 500, but with a tan top and interior vs black, it would have been cool to have a matching set of 500's! Plenty of parts going to help other cars, and to members of the F_BO family!

                                                  I have to cut my 67 rear roll panel for dual exhaust. Today I made a template to match the new oval tips I am installing. IMG_0403.JPG I laid it out on the car and cut the notches where I want them on my car. IMG_0404.JPG Last thing I had to do before taking it off the stands from winter work. Put the wheels back on it and taking it for a drive around the block. Then to the alignment shop then the exhaust shop.
