Where does the time go?

Posted: October 28, 2018 in Uncategorized

I see that it’s been a LONG time since I’ve posted here, but it’s not like I’ve not been busy. Our late summer/early fall time was busy with vacation and family fun around Michigan, so the Thunderbird still isn’t painted, but I’m not worried about it.

It’s supposed to be fun, right?

Since it’s been getting cool, and I’m not painting the T’bird, I cleaned the shop and uncovered the ’63 Riviera. I’d wanted to put disk brakes on the front, and while cleaning found a set of what I think are ’93 Chevy van spindles and brakes. With a little modification of the lower ball joint boss they bolt on. Convenient because, a) I had them, and b) I had swiped one the aluminum drums for the roadster.

This should work very well, I’ve also got a disk/drum master cylinder and proportioning valve, so everything is on hand. I had a brief panic moment when I opened the Buick’s trunk and the air conditioning kit pieces I thought were in there weren’t, but found all those on the storage shelf. Not working on something for a year leads to confusion. Happily I hadn’t lost or tossed out any important new parts.

So, I guess I’m ready for winter. I’d still like to get the T’bird dash painted, so it can be installed. The rest can wait.
