Re: 260 2x4

Jim, I've noticed that a lot of the hardware on your car is golden color. Did you have them anodized?

Re: Car Lift and Garage

Still too cold, or too rainy, or both to epoxy coat my floor, so I continue to "feather the nest", as my wife calls it, with stuff I won't have to haul back out when the weather permits me to coat the floor. Today I mounted a traffic signal that I've had stored in my basement for 20 to 25 years, won...

Re: 1963 Comet Custom Build Thread

That is impressive, and looks great! 8) Did you photoshop the pic of the finished car, or is that an existing car you're using as the inspiration for yours? If you photoshopped it, then I'm REALLY impressed. :shock:

Re: 1965 Comet Caliente (little red)

The next time you get it on the lift, raise it just an inch or so off the floor with the front suspension hanging free. Take a crowbar and place under each front tire and move it up and down.

Re: 1965 Comet Caliente (little red)

All the pictures, including your sig pic look great. Adam is a good photographer. What is the tall thing that looks like a giant antenna on the passenger side of the car in the pics taken "in the wilds"? Almost looks like a guy wire, but there's no pole in the background. :? By the way, the struts o...
