Default Frankenbonne Pt2 (Good luck 56K'*)

I know you all have been waiting patiently for an update on the Franken project. Today I got together with Randman and Mrs. Randman. It has been a while and was nice to hang out again.

As you can see we decided to have a quick little meet at my place. Ron the coolest tow truck dude also dropped in for a few. Mrs. Randman in the chair, me on a toolbox and Ron near the truck.

As well....Mrs. Randman overheard Randy talking about picking up another salvage car to build another project he'* been thinking about while sitting in traffic.
At that point, you can see what he drove her to....Double fisting!


Uh..hey...what'* that behind Mrs. Randman? It'* back!!!!!!!! I'll get some fresh batteries and have engine compartment pics up hopefully by the end of the evening. Gotta go take care of Mechanic Dan'* zoo while he'* on vacation for the weekend. Project to be up and moving very soon!!!

Thanks for takin' the pics, Bill. I need to keep my camera with me at all times.

Well, after several re-do'*, I happy with the engine compartment. The broken subframe nut has been fixed so we're ready to go forward. There'* a little overspray here and there which won't be too bad to correct but overall, they did a nice job. They even painted the subframe with what looks like a rubberized undercoating. Nice.

I need to start bringing the parts down to install such as the fuel lines, tank, AC condenser and lines, ect... Dash removal should be today as well.

Lately, I've only had spare time on the weekends and anticipate that to be the case for at least 3 more weeks. Perhaps we can schedule the NE meet according to Frankenbonne'* expected completion?

If you take the time and effort to make the trip to NE then you derserve a drive.
