Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

The work that you are doing is amazing.

I wish I had taken metal shop in high school.

Hey Trunt ---Lookin' Good! And congrats on firing up without blowing up! Hope I can claim the same here soon. And I do believe we have the very same intercooler. Can't wait to see it all wrapped up in old Chevy sheet metal.

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

plywood and grease or oil is for when you jack the axle up and put the wood down that is oiled to slide the wheel off or on. works on front and rear axles of course.
the air wrench seems to weigh about as much as the tire...

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Thanks guys, Thar's pretty slick! Ha HA! You are right about the 1' drive air wrench weighing as much as a wheel. I can't even change oil whitout the Hasmat team on standby to clean up my mess--so I can only imagine where oiled or greased plywood would end up being like.

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Hey Trunt! Just a thought on the trolly top- those top windows on BIGOLE 61 would look pretty good in in one.
