Another small update removed the inner fender battery plate drilling out the spot welds and help from an air chisel. Getting closer to start welding. This will be my first patch of meny.

Sry haven't updated in several months. Got some welding done on the battery tray area. I know its not pretty but don't have a work bench or vice to help with bending metal. Its slow but I'm getting there

Glad to see you're still on your project.  I almost sent a reply over the weekend to see if there were updates.  I figured you'd let us know when you had something to post so I didn't bug you.  You had the motor apart...how did that end up?  I am trying to get enough other things done on mine so I can try to start it before I have to put it away for the Winter.  I don't want to leap frog other tasks and get the project out of synch.  I really want to hear it run after getting the timing spot on.  It should be better than it was when I got it!

Keep going and keep us posted.  We learn from each other...

Thanks Rob I haven't done anything else with the motor yet. I want the block dipped cleaned and possibly get the block n head milled possibly just so its even. But if I do that I'm not sure what all I need to do, because it Changes things. I'm no expert on rebuilding engines, I understand the basics. I have a friend that is a certified mechanic that I'm going to ask for his help.
Don't be afraid to ask questions your not bugging me, I've been trying to work on it every Friday and Sunday now that the temps are cooling off will be more pleasant to work on it maybe get more done. My goal is to have it running by December 31 but not done or street legal.

Not alot to update on, haven't done much. Just little more underside cleaning then primer then undercoating.  Also cut out this piece of rust under the passenger backseat area.  I just got my welding Co2 tank filled back up after I made the mistake of leaving it on. I welded one wk came back a wk later went to turn the tank on and was like why is it so hard to turn on? Then it hit me to try and turn it the other way. I'm not going to make that mistake again. Luckily its not a very expensive one only $35 to fill back up. 

Now I have it filled back up I can start welding again. Yay. Thats all for now
