The colour on that studebaker is way different than that gomango. It is also a candy colour.

I'm enjoying your build cookie monster! Keep the pics coming.

Sorry to here about your son Jeepsterhemi, hopefully someone finished off the Ramcharger, looks like a cool project.

When I was assembling the top end I had to machine an adapter for the thermostat housing. I bought a CRS thermostat and housing and they are smaller than stock and the thermostat just falls into the water pump housing so......

I bought a used Indy valley plate and I did not like the fit along the heads as the gap was too big so I machined my own using 3/8" aluminum.

I also made my own motor plate because I did not like the 1/4" thick ones. A friend of mine had one so I used it as a pattern. I made the one on the left which is 3/8" thick.

I got all the stuff out of storage and the car and still have to empty the shed and load into the garage and then try to half-ass organize for now. Won't be working on the car this year as I have to finish the inside of the garage and the outside.................this is giving me a headache  thinking about all the work that still needs to be done.

14-71 standard littlefield set up for gas and freshly serviced by Littlefield. Needs a little polish.

picked up some heavy duty dollies today off of craigslist for $20 each and threw some 3/4" ply down. Casters are 3" so I can roll the car around nice and easy. Car dollies are $100 for 2 at Princess auto and even more at other stores. I don't mind spending a shit ton of money on the car but somethings I am just plain old fashioned frugal on.

I think being frugal on things like this, is a good thing. After all that's more money to spend on the good stuff.
