    Worked on the deck.


    Fired up the bandsaw and made some decking timbers

    It'll look something like this

    No real update. Haven't worked on the model all weekend, it was the annual Lumberjack Festival. Yesterday started to paint some details on the crane. Noticed the windshield wasn't quite straight and proceeded to break it while removing it. Have to make another one out of acetate. Also succeeded in smudging one of the side windows. So I quit while I was still ahead.

    This is the only place I could find to mount the ECU.


    Set up in my outside office with measurements and photos provided by GrunpoyGrowly and 1930fordpickup and set out to make a set of plans to scratchbuild the deck.

    Where do you find t-bars?
    I am planning to scratch built a stake body truck and am looking for 2mm T-bars for the railings. I have a piece left over from before which may be ABS (dark grey). I have looked at both Evergreen and Platruct's sites to no avail. Any suggestions?

    I held that stack in position what what seemed like a long, long time before it stayed upright without leaning. It was next to impossible to prop it up because of where it is. It is in situations like this that my patience gets really tested.

    Added the stack,THEN made up the bracket. Doing things backward. No choice since I found it a lot easier to take the measurements with the stack in place.

    Completed the exhaust pipe.

    Added the floor pan, driveshaft & mudgards.


    Had to cut the stack & pin it to be able to rotate it to the proper orientation.

    Extended the driveshaft to fit the new wheelbase. Intially I was going to have a hanger bearing and two shafts but I elected to go with the sliding spline style. Lazy eh?

    Cut & rolled the L-700's exhaust pipes to make it go where I want it to go. Shaping the "upturn". Gator, I found that neat stack with an engine I got on eBay and felt the need to use it here. The bracket will be on the frame of the truck against the front of the crane's frame.

    Fired up the compressor and Alcladed a few parts.

    Looking for a good spot for a stack. Has to clear the cab and the crane and be where I can attach it to something.

    Probably ramps. I wouldn't want to be the brave soul who drove it up there though.
     
     
     
    Just off the road in a restaurant front lawn.A perfectly maintained 20's Oakland. the owner told me he's had it since 1969. A Boss 302 and a neat Monte.



    These were supposed tp be two separate posts & it merged them, told me so too. Not sure why it did that.

    New format
    This is what the new format looks like on my Explorer. Maybe my version is too old. Anyway, it works fine on Google Chrome.
