Well now Chet.  Those circus colors would go nicely with the polka dot interior!  Could have some interesting combos in those taxi's, you know.   Engine came out easy since you didn't mention issues?    frank

Chet, if memory serves correctly, you have the right idea.  Lower the rear to clear the steering while raising the front end over the frame and bringing forward.  You won't have any problems.   frank

Flip the mirror 180 for how mine is mounted.  Mirror mount covers the middle screw in the headboard.    frank

Cool, Dave.  Yes, you've been missed and your absence has been noted.  The 2 fuel tanks pic didn't attach.   frank

Insightful comments.  I suppose I should check price of oats and the stable before grousing about $$$ spent on winter storage!

Chet,   Thanks for sharing.   frank

Yeah, Chet - gutsy or stupid without a cell phone, which is still nonexistent.  Although I don't know if reception is available even now on WI 70 west of Woodruff.  Pretty lonely on that Sunday.  Don't even remember any logging trucks, but it was scenic, if you enjoy trees.

It won't be long and you'll be crusin'.  Keep up the great work.   frank

40, with tops about 45 or so.  Depends on road surface and to lesser degree, traffic.  In the city, main streets are 35 to 40 which are about right unless the surface is wretched; filled, mounded pot holes and sealed joints every 20 feet.  These are annoying in a modern car, too.

This pan is under the front seat for tools and spare parts.  The standard place for these is under the rear seat, but I wanted room for a bottle jack, coil and other items.  It is galvanized and the outside is painted black to match the undercarriage.

(I made this in 2001 before driving about 200 miles east to Reedsburg, WI, for a Plymouth meet on a Thursday.  Sat I drove 200 miles north to a wedding reception and returned home the next day , another 200 miles.  I used the wrench for the oil drain plug.)

Chet,   not the best picture, but hope you get the idea.  Unlike John, I have separate plywood in front and back of cross members at the B pillar.  The front plywood is 2 piece.  The height of the exposed vertical board at the rear seat is 2 11/16".
