I usually just use a wire brush by hand and my thumb. Take the pillar trim off first, don't need to damage that for no reason.

Yeah Chris, When I get after it I will remove that pillar trim for sure. Tonite I was able to get 99% of it off to the point it is basically a skim coat. I think one of those eraser wheels that body men use to remove decals might be the ticket. What are those called Chris? No problem Bob. I spent more time whining about it than it's taken to remove it! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/happy11.gif) Keeping it dry was priority #1.

That's it Stephan. But it's about 3/16" too wide. Damnit. You've put me on the right trail though. I wonder if I could wear it down on the sides w/o much trouble. That channel is only about 8mm wide some places. There are some spray n adhesive removers too but I'm doubtful they'd breakdown silicon. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/idea.gif) I see they also make plastic razor blades for safe scrapping. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Yea Bob, I'm thinking along those lines but a softer brass one and something I can chuck into a die grinder. Dremel tools are fine for tiny stuff but this is about 12'. Did I mention that their terribly overpriced, as well. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/mad.gif) Next on the schedule is flushing the block. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Jeez Kent, impressed with your sheet metal work. Cleeco's and everything.

Your wife must be a Saint.

Delete that Rob. I don't want her to see that. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/lol-2.gif)
So it's time for an update as it's been a couple of weeks. I'm not able to report the progress I had hoped but here I am.
Flushed the block. Surprisingly small amount of rust in the block

Finally removed the last of the silicone from the frame with a wire goto brush. Lost a little paint here and there so I primed and painted that area with some black which I had on hand. No biggie as it will be hidden from view. Just teasing you in that one pic Bob. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/happy11.gif)

I believe I'm at about 90% complete with the wiring. I've powered up both circuits going into the cabin. I have all of the gage lights working, as well as headlights, parking and turn signals, fan lights, pop up headlights and horns. Jesus H Christ Bob. What horns are those? I can't hear myself fart anymore and those horns scared the Hell out me. :rotfl : I should receive the fan controller and Dakota Digital Quad gauge by Monday and hope to be complete with wiring in the next week.

Since I have this huge mass of cast iron I added an anode rod to protect my aluminum radiator. Cheap insurance.

Of all things the blinkers quit working so I submersed myself again only to find it was the ignition switch. BTW, Pelican does not stock them and only orders one once they've received your payment. Big of them, Huh. May Mark will stock them as we all know the Chinese switches are crapola.

Modified the Most Excellent steering pan cover that I received from Bruce aka bdstone, to accept the hoses run beneath.

Then I happened upon the 4th Circle of Hell. The dip stick tube was broken and needed to be replaced. This is the old one. I thought the broken piece was difficult to remove but it paled in comparison to installing the new one.

Attached Image

There was no Good place to tap the new one into place. I thought about using a long large screwdriver but that would have place too much force upon the flared section of the tube. I farted around for 2 hours before deciding upon this method. I heated a cheap 7/16" wrench. It spread the load across the flared section enough that I could hammer it into place with a 1/4" steel rod. Hard to visualize but it worked. Three damned hours to R&R that thing.

Woo Hoo! Can't tell if you hooked up the elec choke yet? The idle speed adjustment screw is upside down under the pass side carb linkage.

Bet the neighbors loving it ! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/lol-2.gif) It's an animal...

I see you have the tach working! Any other gauges work? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)
