Here's the dash after welding holes & slot. Some places had 3 small holes right next to one another. Guess they missed their mark! :wallbanging:

Tank under primer, and a thin layer of body filler on the hood to fill the pitting.

Looks great Daniel! Maybe the three holes were from them trying to mill a slot with the drill :D

I also went ahead & removed the other hub so I could pull the axle tube to check the seal. I had to use a torch to heat the hub while I had a puller on it. Once hot enough, I used an impact wrench & the hub came right off. Turns out both seals are in great shape, and had been replaced not too long ago. I pulled the seals off both outer axle tube bearings, cleaned the old grease out & repacked with moly grease. Neither bearing had any play at all. Not needing new seals or bearings on the axles saved me about $45.

Is that the serial # tag, still on there, in first pic? Don't wreck it.

That gas tank is Tecumseh, right?
FYI, the cap off a MF10 or 12 hydra resevior fits the Tec tank perfectly.

I just didn't feel like getting a drill out to remove the tag. I placed a 1/2" thick piece of steel over the tag while welding.

Actually, that is a tank off a Bush Hog D4-10 tractor. On the D series, the tanks strapped to the grill support. But this tank is the identical size of the TEC tank, so I'm using this one instead of the TEC tank, as it had an extended filler neck & would look wrong, plus pretty rusty inside. This D4-10 tank cap is like big tractor caps as it has the 2 tangs instead of threads.

Well, truth be told, she's gonna be a trailer/shed queen. She will see little action, and NO manure! She will however almost surely hear a LOT of BS! :D

All that new paint on Will's ELF inspired me to kick into gear today & spray some red paint! After these parts cure enough to handle, then I'll spray some more. That WILL be late next week. Christmas stuff this weekend, then on Christmas Day, so my time is booked from here till after Christmas.
These parts came out pretty decent. I worry most when I'm shooting the hood, fenders & the like. I don't want to be in a rush when I do those.

Daniel that looks great! Heck it even looks Festive :D

But isn't it funny how when we paint engines, frames etc. they always seem to come out great, but as soon as we hit the hood and fenders they just don't seem to coat as nice! maybe it is because we know they are the most critical and we get nervous that we are going to make a mistake.

Also I don't know what it is about hoods but... every time I paint one and it comes out great I always manage to have something fly through the air an hit it no matter where I put it out of the way. :wallbanging:

When I paint something I really don't care how it comes out it looks great, but when I take my time and do all the prep work and try to make it come out just so, something always happens. :mad2:

I can't believe some of the stuff they do on Overhaulin after the car has been painted not they never mess up the paint job. With me the drill would slip or I'd hit the fender with the engine as I went in. :ah_shoot: :boo_hoo:
