Have you ever thought about maintaining your critical tools to make sure they are ready to use when you need them? I have thought about going through my welder for about 10 years and somehow it just keep going. Â I mentioned that the power cable sprung a leak for the second time in 6 months and I needed to take it to the welder store and see what was causing the failure. Â Tim took one look at the cable, after I complained about buying a new one all the time, and said the torch is getting too hot and what kind of corrosion resistance substance I was using. Â I told him automotive anti-freeze and he stated that is the problem. Â It seems the power cable in welders doesn’t like anti-freeze and only likes welder coolant @$20 a gallon. Â I said O.K. , came home and per Tim’s recommendation, tore the water cooler apart. He was right it was really jammed up and corroded. Â The disassembly took all afternoon and I can now make a new top plate as it is full of holes which leaks water and coolant all over the place. Â The lesson here is you should keep your tools in tip top shape and you won’t have this problem.
I am tired tonight so no more BS just pictures.
Here is a nice 33 roadster with a hemi peeking out of the louvered hood. Â I kind of like the profile of the top. Â Nice ride.
Kevin stopped by Dave’s house to show off his beautiful black 33 sedan. Â I have never seen this one but it has a lot of curb appeal and super detail.
I think the red wires really complement the black car. Â I don’t know why we don’t see more of these. Â They must be straight to be black.
A sneaky roadster, back in the Midwest tree lined streets, is heading on for a cruise. Â Carson style top, Cadillac engine and bias tires add to the early look. Â I still like the gas tanks hanging out in the rear with pencil tips peeking out beside the 40 rear end.
This is a 60 style hiboy as opposed to the one above. Â I grew up with the skinny tire front and fat tire rear crowd. Â Lobeck was a heavy influence on my taste in cars.
Pinkee just freshened up this SAR full fendered 33. Â A little high tech but very nice and priced reasonable for the quality of car.
Joe had a huge collection of cars that were auctioned off a couple of years ago. Â This one brought $55k as I recall. Â These sedans really look good as a resto-rod.
Built in Colorado this sedan delivery is a nice ride with Ford power and Tacoma Cream wires. Â Again, the stance on these sedans is very important and this one is correct in my opinion.
Yes, I still would like a Deuce sedan hiboy in the driveway. Â This is a new arrival at County Line and is scheduled to be a hiboy sedan. Â The body looks nice in the photos…maybe about 2 1/2 inches out the top and leave the primer….YES!
Today’s GNRS show entrant?….maybe!
Bass is showing this on the HAMB as an entrant in this years GNRS. Â You can read more about this build on the HAMB. Â The top has the Bob-O look.
