MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Well after a long time searching I finally found a good back window for my 71 valiant, it just so happened to be attached to another 71 valiant with a good amount of useable parts.
  2. After 3 years I’ve finally got my truck back together
  3. Was able to clean up and re spray a set of f350 emblems off of a 77 Ford for my 06 super duty. and also got a lot of assembly done on the rest of the truck.
  4. I’m pretty sure that 75 Ford was at the Grand Prairie AB spring spectacular indoor show a few weeks ago (I didn’t get a picture of it) but it had the same chrome, emblem delete, hub caps and colour combinations inside and out.
  5. Yeah it’s turned out pretty good. I’m not to sure what gun was used. I can’t take credit for the painting as it’s my boss that did it (if I sprayed it it would not look nearly as good)
  6. All the paint work is finished on my truck and it’s ready for re assembly!!
  7. First of the gold two tone sprayed over the brown on my trucks hood.
  8. Got a nice used mopar single plane aluminum intake for a small block at a swap meet, I already have another intake coming for my 340 but it was to good of a deal to pass up. I also got a pretty cool set of big block mopar valve covers (they aren’t actually original 426 valve covers) but I thought they will look cool hanging on a wall or maybe on my 440 if I ever find a home for it.
  9. Finally started laying some colour down on my truck!
  10. The worst vehicle I have owned is my 77 Ford F-150 short box 4X4, I’ve only ever driven it for about a month and a half 2 years ago. It has so many things wrong with it. Including but not limited to a broken track bar (the hole is wore out and when you hit a bump the front axle moves 2” side to side), rear axle has a 6” block between the leaf and axle and it moves almost 6” when putting it in gear, the tires hit the fender, trailing arms and bumper before you hit full lock, it is full time 4X4 and the shifter linkage for the t case just went missing one day well driving, the speedo is out by about 30mph, the oil pressure gauge, temp gauge and fuel gauge don’t work, the truck gets 6 mpg (it’s left me on the side of the road a few times) and burns oil, leaks oil from the engine, front and rear diffs, transmission and t case, I would have to stop every 30km to add break fluid, the drives side calliper fell off one day for no reason and almost cut my rim in half, the right exhaust manifold was split in two and had such a bad exhaust leak that I had to drive with the windows down and the rear slider open, the stereo had one CD stuck in it (not that it mattered because the tires and glass packs over powered everything else on earth. Despite all that and the fact that it’s the worst vehicle I’ve ever owned it’s also the best vehicle I’ve ever owned. I have had a lot of fun with it and plan on resorting it soon.
  11. My truck made it to primer yesterday and I got the paint today, should be painted next week! I was also able to knock apart the 340 for my valiant and the only thing that I think I need to replace is the timing chain.
  12. I am using waterborne paint on it and I also have a little paranoia about unsanded things like that, I would much rather spend two hours of frustration sanding it so I know the paint will stick than kick myself a few years down the road when it starts to peal back and have to take it apart and re spray it. Yeah I am respirating the entire truck Ford Kodiak brown/sunburst gold two tone (they are waterborne metallic paints) and I think that a colour matched cowl will look better than faded black plastic.
  13. Some genus (myself) decided it would be a good idea to colour match the black plastic cowl on my truck since I’m going to be painting the entire truck. After 2-1/2 hours of sanding I finally finished the million 1cmX1cm little square vents. will it look good? Yes, was it worth it? Probably not. Now I need to do the other half.....
