It is a set up for the bus, has to clear the bumper and this ain’t no slamma jamma scrape’O’ramma! [-X

However, I haven’t put the bumper on it yet so don’t know how it actually looks with it on. 8-[

Just finished reframing the pop out windows. These are a bish to do without braking any of them! Even with totally new frames! :-/

Some of the old timers in Strictly Vintage 2s might remember having a "how to" demonstration done for us in one of the big resto houses many moons ago, where the glass broke when he was just about done with it! #-o

Borrowed from a very good friend. :cool:


Yes, it IS true! I do have a few friends! :roll:



Anyway, he says you can get them "on line", however you want to define that! I will be looking for them though. Last time I did this job I used the cheesy harbor fright ones with extreme care and still managed to get a small crack on the corner of one glass. #-o


Here's the scoop... They can stretch quite a few feet and have an auto-retract feature. :razz:

Damn! :x

Just when I though it was good to go to paint... THIS!!! :-/

I've tried to seal and reseal the spout, even triple O-ringed it and it still is leaking! WTF? So I'm under it, dried it all up and watched it "seep out" apparently from the tank itself, not the spout!?!?! :roll:

Image


Even videoed it! :-s

It's all new, tank and outlet. Thought it was all set and done, then the next day I walk into the garage and could smell the gas... sure enough, leaking! So, drained it, check, reset, seemed ok, next day leaking! O-ringed, still leaking, throw more O-rings at it, seemed ok, next day leaking! :-x

Got rid of the O-rings except the smaller one just between the outlet pipe and the big nut. Tightened it to umpt or so torque, now it's dry... so far! :roll:

Buna and silicone o-rings are not gas resistant. I think you need a Viton, Kalrez or teflon o-ring. McMaster-Carr sells them. Search o-ring on there site and a page will show all the different types of materials and they should have a chemical resistance chart too.
