  1. That plate frame turned out great! Wonder if the abrupt crash with your wheels being stationary caused the axles to bash the seals and damage them? Now what about the axle bearings?
  2. Man that thing is so stock and untouched, even the Towanada#1 sticker is still on the valve cover!
  3. This car, for how long it sat neglected, I'm so amazed of how well it runs :D Just did a good flush and oil change on er. Lifters are all unstuck and it runs so smooth now VID_26231217_191735_355~2.mp4
  4. It's first long trip in 30 years. Sorting out plugged cooling systems, new waterpump, anything rubber, new brake lines, master cylinder, new set of tires, of course getting the tunes working today. Logged 200 miles on a circle tour through Southern British Columbia.Man it was a joy to drive, this ole beast will roast tires in all three gears, while feeling like you're sitting on Grandma's couch.This circle drive is known as the WestKootroute/Selkirk loop. Weather was 90F+ all day, now dealing with a burnt left arm 😛
  5. Hmm...I'll have to repost the two last photos from my pocket annoyance device....Been battling overheating issues. Last Saturday was finally fed up and wanted to get to the bottom of the problem! Pulled to old water pump off (yes I kept it, it was original to the car!) Flushed the engine out with a garden hose and same thing with the rad.Went to Napa to get a brand new high flow waterpump and some powdered stuff that mixes with water to clean the whole system out. Sitting all this time the coolant was this kind of brown greyish gross liquid and the rad was plugged. I ran the solution with straight water for 10 minutes, then ran straight water through a garden hose through one of those heater hose tee things until the water coming out of the drain and top rad filler was clear again. The inside of the rad is all clean now and it's running ever so happy now that it is getting proper cooling! I figured this car shouldn't have run so hot, being that is has a larger radiator than a CamperSpecial Chev Truck
  6. Also, now with the airshocks and compressor working, it's got a nice rake to her
  7. The package tray was just ratched and throwing flakes of paper all over the interior. I just made a new one of some corplast and some colour matching fabric I found. Here's the thing... It looked too good for the rest of the original interior! Ahh crap, I ended up rubbing it down with some used oil, now it fits the theme of the sunbeaten, faded original interior. Just a quick fix to make it a bit less ugly to drive 😜
  8. I was wondering the same thing! This car is untouched and just had the driver bullet mirror Last night I finally got the AM/FM stereo 8 track from Jared. It was in rough shape, but a few hours and a parts AM 8track I had, I got it up and running! How rare are these stereos actually? The right channel is playing very weak on this ole girl, I had to completely swap out the volume control from my AM 8 track, it needs a bit more work but I I have AM/FM and the all important stereo light now!
  9. Nice to finally meet you in person! Jealous of your fully loaded 72 Custom now
  10. I don't know why, but I love that Sears Alternator. Awesome to have it running :D! Looks like it has a lot of options
  11. the Sun was out today! Lots of wine to be "sampled" too
  12. Finally I was accompanied by another Monte at a car show! I always feel so lonely
  13. The more I drive er, the happier Monte seems to be. I'm glad to have another old Chevy to distract me from the long days of BS.
