      so, like i said, i got to drive it on monday
      we had a little birthday parade for our assistant pastor and since he's got some young kids you know i had to let some smoke out of the tires (like i needed an excuse for that)

      on the way back home, i had my boy and one of his buddies in that, so i was making sure i wasnt getting the best mileage, shall we say

      from the back seat, his buddy goes, "how fast is this car?"
      i said, im not sure, i dont think ive had it over 90

      and my boy goes "NA-HU" we've done at least 110

      darn kids, always ratting me out

                            My son bought me heat wrap and plug wire boots for Father's Day. I installed them today.

                            I put a slit in the heat wrap for the fuel line bracket and wrapped it all the to just past #6 header tube. Since I don't need passenger side boots, I used one on the fuel hose to the carburetor. Not sure I like it...

                            Oh, and I put up a saucer swing for my wife...er, I mean... grandson!!!

                                Lol . .

                                For this framework stuff I use John Deere Equipment Enamel, Self Priming a special formula for farm machinery. I get a special hardener online for it. Makes it tuff and fast drying, not gummy and slow drying like some enamels.

                                This is JD blitz black, leaves a nice satin finish for iron work.

                                Thanks

                                Sounds like it is durable and will hold up well.
