                  Just Arrived Today... had ordered on 10/10/2021 @ www.cupholdersplus.com Narrow Slim Humphugger SLIM (219_Gold)
                  Part# HRCHH-Slim ( Gold)

                  Tight fit so I loosened the seat bolts Underneath and the console pushed firmly down & re-tighted seat bolts to floorboard! It ain't going anywhere!
                  No console attaching bolts needed... thus if you want it removed... just pull it out, no damage or holes to fill
                  Now I can have my coffee ☕ without having to hold the cup between my knees!!! And that's a bitch in a 4 Speed car !!!
                  And now I have console storage and not just that tiny A-Body glove box! AND an Armrest in my 65 `cuda

                    Skid plate time. I just did not like the oil pan hanging down without protection. This is just mocked up. I will clean, paint and get proper bolts/nuts. It is heavy but I could lift the car with it if I wanted to.

                        Today I got a lot done. I finished the Skid Plate. I installed a fuel pressure and oil pressure gauge that talks to the Super sniper EFI. I programmed and calibrated as well. Then I removed the crossover X pipe in my exhaust system to change the tone and remove the drone. I then took it for a nice drive in the rain. When I got home and the mail arrived, I got a present. A good day.

                        My car has no badges at the moment so this should help.

                            52 Dodge PU - New steering column back in and bolt everything back up.

                            66 Valient - my order of attack will be to drop the fuse box and clean up the corrosion. Next, add oil and temp gauges. Replace the cheesy Edelbrock carb with a freshly rebuilt 9636 Carter. As soon as it arrives replace the bent water pump pulley.

                              You see a Charcoal Canister. I see a Coolant overflow tank. Bam. In broad daylight. No one will ever know. That's this week project. And on the kitchen table too..:)

                                just dont leave your hood up around me
                                if i see someone accidentally hooked that charcoal canister up to your radiator, id be helpful enough to plumb it right back into your fuel system

                                  A EMPTY little green propane tank you use for camping fits inside nicely. Now you have a sealed coolant tank. Run a hose to it. Cost? Zero. No one will ever trace the vacuum lines out to see where they go. And it will look stock under the hood.

                                        Stripped these babies down, media blasted them and gave them a good soak in Evapo-rust.......Made some nice re-enforcement plates while it soaked. Drilled the spotwelds on the bump stop bracket to take up loose slack. Primed and painted the inside so I could weld the plates on. Pressed in my brand new lower control arm bushings. Getting ready to paint the whole shooting match and realized I missed the crack in the ball joint boss.......F*&@K me, back to the starting line!:BangHead:

                                          And the good news is.........The line that I thought was a crack, turned out to be a black Evapo-rust line where it was soaking. Buffed right out, and no evidence of a crack under a lighted magnifying glass.:D

                                            Today I put in a rear license plate light since mine was broken and it did not fit the new bumper. I also replaced the headlights. I used to have Phillips ultra, clear crystalvision sealed beam headlights. They are the first picture. Second picture is the Hella headlight with the Hella bulbs that come with the headlight. The third is the Hellas with the Phillips 9003 X-treme vision upgrade bulbs. I will adjust the aim according to @slantsixdan this weekend. I need to look it up.
