Hanger Hang Ups

In 30 years do you think you'll ever see a day when a Holden Taliban or Toyota Al Qida 4X4 is parked in an R.S.L parking lot? Imagine how awesomely impractical an airplane hanger would be in your backyard and that little beetle that has lived in the old mop bucket for the last four weeks, you know the one? the little green one that attacks the welding rod when you poke him? yeah that one, what does he eat? theres only water in there and why is he still alive?

I 100% guarantee you this shit went through my head today. And I'm freeing that beetle tomorrow.


But what is it? A sectioned Lincoln?

I'm sure this would be fun to drive.

Part Three

Aka The Dr Love patented Super Sweep 2000 or frame template for short.
Instead of forking out the going price of $400 and repairing and boxing up a rusty original Model A frame, i decided long ago i was going to fabricate my own.
Now i may be a border line cocktail lover but i draw my gayness in at a T-bucket frame. You know the ones, just two flat frame rails with an after thought crossmember.
So that being said i needed a template to mark out the shape of a Model A frame onto some 4x2 box. You can find chassis dimension drawings on the internet easy enough.
Now i work with aluminium every day so i cut a flat piece 4 inch wide and marked out the dimensions. Now the drawings don't tell you the radius of the swoop so i had to improvise a little with my patented super sweep. Here's what it looked like behind the smoke and mirrors. My patented bendy ruler technique gives a suitable radius to mark from. The actual radius in this photo looked bad when i cut it out so i started again and made a second one.

The final template is as shows. I was happy with the outcome but looking at the photo it looks a little off. Might be the angle of the photo i think.

Part Two

< If you've been round long enough you'd know about the 39' ford we pulled out of the side of a creek next to a house made of ginger bread.
Well these are the brakes, and if completely rooted had a theme song these would need a full orchestra because there fucked.
The only salvageable parts are one backing plate and hopefully the two pretty worn spindles if i can get a king pin out of the second one.
There was too much effort gone into getting these parts to not try and use something.

Labour Day

A day of rest for the people whose only productive asset is their ability to work. Enjoy it.

Good relaxing beers though.
