      Gumby reacted to gnob's post in the thread Tell me why not to buy an FJC with Like Like.
      Got rid of the one I had because the ex wouldn't stop bytching. I liked the power, dash and upright windshield. The visibility sucked. The "triangle" the no real "b" pillar thing is a constant rattle. I thought 6th gear was pointless and 15mpg...

      I think one more sand and recoat after I get back from vacation. The frames are just set in place. I've ordered a 3mm piece of fiberoptic cable and a light driver to see if I can't make them light up when the doors open. Hopefully, my back...

      Leafs are all disassembled, wire wheeled, POR15ed. New spring pad sliders. Waiting on new spring clamps and bushings. Center bolts are weird. 3/8 bolt with 5/8 bushings on either end that go in rubber isolators. I'm just gonna make new ones. The...

      Gumby replied to the thread Tell me why not to buy an FJC.
      I would never buy another one. I wanted to like it. I really tried hard. The back is great with dogs except they are in an airless cave. It was pretty miserable for them until I put quarter door vents in, but they were kinda cheesy and not super...

      I put a built 6.0 lq9 in a swb 45. It was way too much. I put a stock 5.3 lm7 in it amd made it way more usable. The 6.0 is going in a 66 continental. Cool build thread

      Pressed out the fixed bushings and sandblasted some of the parts today. A serious Suicide Slab custom shop in CA offered free parts on the faceballs slab group that he was cutting out of a 66. He was kind enough to cut the spring pack to send me...

      Got the axle out, stripped, wire wheeled, and painted with POR-15. Bearings and gaskets ordered. 9-3/8 ring gear. Weird thing ford did to upgrade the 9" in the 60s behind the 462. A 9 inch fits in the same housing and axles. I might downgrade to...

      Black and decker. I have 4. $30 on Bezos and don't die. So cheap I have one for every kind of disk I use. Slide switch. I use a cordless for a wire cup. It's more controlled than a corded one. Gotta have a good battery. It's worth it for some...

      I should really stay off of CL https://flint.craigslist.org/cto/d/goodrich-barn-find-1956-continental/7478128582.html

      Some progress. Polished some more stainless. I'm starting to get the hang of it. Finished welding everything above the rockers. Really, the only metal left to replace is in the rear wheel wells, mostly where the inner wheel well meets the...

      So, I gotta do some research. I've seen a B-J listing that claimed the owner had the factory door pillowing taken out. I've also seen a Devious Customs video where the owner is talking about taking out the pillowing that happens over time...

      Been on Spring break all week so I felt like I made some progress. Spending 9 days in my shop working on a project sounds so much better to me than getting on a crowded plane and sitting doing nothing in the warm for hundreds of dollars a day...
