Engine and Transmission Installed

I bolted the engine and transmission into the chassis this morning. It went smoothly. Then I spent the rest of the day cleaning parts so I can paint them Monday. Right now my back is sore from bending over the sandblasting cabinet for so long, but all the major parts are now clean. Next week I hope to get the rest of the parts on the engine, the radiator and steering column installed, and maybe the firewall.

Until next week .....


  1. Hey Larry, do you think it took Henry Ford awhile to put the Model T together the first time? Sounds like you are progressing very nicely as you go piece by piece with cleaning and painting taking a lot of time. Thanks so much for keeping us posted.
    If you buy some of the high dollar paintings we saw at Taos it will take a big bunch of money. Have fun.
    Dad & Lois with our Love to all!

  2. Hi, Uncle Larry! This is cool. I'll have to show this to Lane & Jason. They will definitely be impressed.
    I hope the weather stays warm for awhile longer for you. Send some moisture our way!
