Stalled out!

If you follow the TCG Youtube channel you know that my wife's health is failing so not a lot is getting done at the shop. Things have pretty much stalled out for now since her health is at the stage where she pretty much can't do anything at all. I'm here to care for her so that means I cook, clean and do all that stuff that needs to be done to keep the house in order.

Earlier this year, my last bits of work on the Pontiac included getting a proper mechanical fuel pump installed, working out some kinks in the fuel line setup, getting a Holley 4bbl clone carb and adapter installed so that I can start it reliably and working on buttoning up the front floor pan patches. Which is where I'll pick up when time allows.

Stay tuned and thanks for following along.

Getting hung up on the past...

Not that there's anything wrong with that. Some folks can really get into it. And it drives so much of the car hobby. But that's not me. I cannot. But I can, recognizing my own limited skills, still draw a bit of inspiration from those who blazed the trial. While still keeping my feet firmly planted in reality of the here and now.

Progress Report

 As you view these, please keep in mind that I've never attempted this level of fabrication before and I have a lot to learn.

Progress

This is what we're currently thrashing around with, although my lack of confidence continues to slow me down quite a bit.

It has been a great learning experience tho and that's what this entire project is all about.
