OK, why haven’t I been posting any updates here lately? Well, just been busy in the shop.
Yes and there are lots of things going on here all the time.
I have been working on a customers 1961 convertible that was a total basket case and we rebuilt the complete car down to every last nut and bolt. Anything that I thought we might be able to just get by with what he had………. ha ha, it comes back to haunt us. I am down to putting on the convertible top and I find out that it is not made correctly. Waiting to hear from the manufacturer.
I have been getting a quite a few orders for relay replacement systems for the convertibles so always have a couple in the assembly process. This past week they caught up to me and I had to finish one quickly to install in a car that is in my son’s shop (oh, that is a story I have to tell also, about my son having his own shop…. and right out by me)
I sold the last upper back panel switch replacement unit that I had in stock so now there are a dozen of those in the assembly process. I have to make and machine all the brackets for those which is the time consuming part. I do most of it on my milling machine (shop tour will be coming on the blog here also).
Then of course there are the daily phone calls and emails for parts that customers are looking for.
I steel a few minutes here and there to organize and order parts for the stroker motor I am building for the “Blackbird” that has been in the works for over 22 years now. Almost had it going a year ago then a customer car bumped it out of my shop once again.
My CAT skid steer broke its oil pump so now I need to find $12,000.00 for a new engine for that also. What a motivating factor to keep working.
God bless all of you.
