So our calendar shoots have begun. We did one on Saturday and another on Monday. Both went well and everyone is very excited about the project. We’re going to have a variety of models and cars. Blondes, brunettes, and redheads, with various American vehicle makes ranging from restored to future project. Out goal is to show the work of individuals on their vehicles.
And speaking of working on vehicles. The work on our 1971 F100 project is progressing. The steering column is out and parts are on the way for it’s rebuilding. Heavier rear springs have been installed. I’ll be posting a thread in the tech section covering that swap. This coming week we’ll be cutting out the rusty driver floor pan and welding in the new Made-in-USA pan we got from Mac’s Auto Parts.
I also spent a humid Texas morning at the boneyard digging out a set of split fuelie exhaust manifolds for our straight six 300 build. The task reminded why I don’t like to work on any vehicle made after the mid-80’s. But they’ll give us true duals and increased torque for our big six without the heat and hassle of headers.
On a parting note, here are a couple of sneak previews to our Nose Art section and Wildman Auto Works calendar. Enjoy!
