Re: Grizz's Redneck Express 1966 Chevy Short Fleetside RESTO-GO!

This morning at one point, mate Martin called me to say he had been to his mums home and found VW Polo Towbar

Knowing that I was looking for something to convert to fit to the Blazer, he put it in his work van and took it with him.

Tonight we were about a mile apart on the motorway , both headed down the M2 when he called to see how my day had gone, we realised a rendezvous was in order, so met up on the roadside next to the Medway river on the Cuxton road bypass.

Nice new work van.



Wooooohoooo.... Bounty.



Came home, fed the security cat, then quick trip to the garage to offer the Towbar up yo the chassis mounting points

Extension to be removed.

Mounting plate 300mm off the ground.



Chassis mounts are at 800mm
Towbar is at 900mm
Perfect.



To be mounted in top of chassis tabs.




Security cat helped and then came up to the house to wait for me.

Security cat too.

Like a little Klingon




May have found a previous owner from a long time ago.

Below some comments from him.


Did that come from a guy in Kent? It looks like one I had years ago. Also 2WD

Not sure Rian long time ago sold to a guy in kent and never seen since it was original 2wd from California was all in primer apart from removable top in cream, i had a heavy duty tow bar welded on as used to pull large trailer pulling yanks from Belgium, have a pic will try and find, same grill though.

Rian Kemp as said not sure if that's the same one but looks like it, but i remember when i registered mine i had to take it to Ashford kent for some reason to have it checked always had mine done local, verry hard to find in original 2wd today, the only reason i sold it i had a 70 3 door suburban from Texas arrive couple months later.

Re: Grizz's Redneck Express 1966 Chevy Short Fleetside RESTO-GO!

Take two.

iPad 1 Grizz 0

Been a busy week, and tonight I had a report deadline, after a conversation with my new manager, we booked a half day for Thursday so that he could help me understand the process and activity to deliver a new monthly report, which all his reportees think is a waste of time, but hey..... what do we know?


So at 6pm before light failedI went to the garage and lifted the Blazer up high.




Remember this piece?



Clamped in.



Done.

Good enough for me.

Glued in place.



Then the seam sealer, thinking it would be the end of the day.

But of course not, Ehhh?



900mm of welding done in the dark, using an LED torch to show me where to go.......




Bird poop welding on the inner sill panel, without a doubt,

Grinding back in the morning, and some seam sealer later.

This is not at all structural but needed to be done.

Kraken Rum no 2 is history too, so gp era near bedtime for me.


I am also almost out of gas, and interestingly, Imam getting a free delivery from Sam tomorrow.

Old skool service with a smile.
