LOL- additional fuel for delivery.
Thirsty big blocks !
The boy, I mean the boys have been busy.
I can't believe you took the AC off.
It will go back in one day.
My wife has a stupid disease that makes her heat sensitive.
Like anything above 65* and sunny is the devil to her.
We will put it aside on a shelf for now to save for later.
Max washed the thing today.
Looks pretty nice after a little scrubbing.
Now to find some of the little gizmos that put hold the side trim on the bed.
That piece has been in the garage and I am afraid it will get bent just like the original that was snagged on a pocket and ripped off by one of his buddies.
I also forgot to show the speakers that he put into it a while ago.
We figured out what we wanted from the stereo and I set him to looking for speakers for it.
What he came up with was a nice set of Kicker separates that are rated to 75 watts RMS.
I approved and we bought them.
I coached where the items should be placed and what I wanted.
A nice clean install with everything in the same place on both doors.
He did a great job and put them all in the same position on the doors.
Looks good and sounds good.
Currently they are just running off the deck power source.
Soon we will install one of the amps that I have and then a sub-woofer to pick up the lows...
I didn't realize the tweeter was hidden behind the window crank when I took the photo.
Just imagine it there...
Like your style Peter, you sound lots like me. A Bug for a daily driver!!! Cool, here's ours, 72 Sun Bug
Yeah but Lookit all that trim you got on that door there, like dang. I bet having all the trim would be neat.
Nice Bug @Craig Nedrow !
Here is my little monster, it is a 1973 Super.
I have been through most of it in the 15 years that I have owned it.
It has been mostly upgraded to hold the fury of the 2332 engine that I have been building for the last bunch of years for it.
Naturally Max and his little sister Elizabeth have both helped me work on this one as well.
I made a deal with Max going into the 9th grade that if he is able to make it through all 4 years of high school with no D's or F's on the official report cards, I would give it to him when he is all done and graduated.
He will be a senior next year and is on track for owning a bug.
This is a couple days after he turned 9.
I had him take the transmission out of the car to get it ready for the Prostreet one that is in there now. I just loosened the tight bolts and directed what to do.
Done and out before the baseball game that afternoon.
Helping out on this one since he was tiny.
Elizabeth helped me clean up the pop out rear side window frames.
I replaced the seals and then put them into the car.
Enough about that one for now.
This week has been way hot, so junior goober has been in the cave like house.
But last week he did install the proper ends on the random spark plug wires we have.
They are all MSD 8.5mm Super Conductor wires.
Before they were all mismatched and kinda wonky, but they worked.
Not perfect, but they all match.
He will be installing the high tech zip tie wire separators when it is cooler out.
Making good progress! Awesome to see your son so involved. Good job!
I did that with my kids. The result, smarter, and happy. Leah still does lots of wrenching on her husbands stuff, keep it up!
Craig,You have a daughter named Leah? My Mother's name was Leah, not too many around with that name. Story behind it?
Named after Leah, Jacob's first wife from the Bible. Second daughter Anna, also from the Bible.
Juniors buddy was in the junkyard today and asked if Max needed anything.
He gave him a list of stuff to look out for.
Lo and behold he came home with one of the golden prizes we have been looking for.
A wiper delay switch and module out of a 1982 Suburban.
