You sleep in your garage or something?

Great progress, this baby should hit the road very soon again!

another long day in the garage. The Passenger side door has been rubbing at the bottom and needed adjustment.  Of course the cage nuts broke on the bottom of the fenders and the ones in the basket on front as well. So that was fun. I got the passenger side lined up pretty well and adjusted the strike to where it needed to be. The Drivers side still needs more work and its currently too close to the wall. So i got minimal adjustment done. I then finally decided to install the whole front end and get it out of my way. Of course i had more cage nut problems but got it worked out and installed. Hood is on and so are the chrome inserts because i have them. I worked on aligning it as well and the gaps arent too bad. Then naturally i took pictures as it looks like a real car again. Still need to wire the engine stuff back up and go get gas. Then i can fire it up and see if it runs better

Ive been pretty busy with other project lately, like putting a metal shed together and restoring my grandfathers 1940s tiliting table saw so i have something to use. 

Here a video of the saw before i started on it

BUTTTTT

I dont know if i mentioned this but i got the engine buttoned up and went to start it. Nothing  Battery was completely dead and ended up having to get Advanced to charge it. After 30 minutes they said it was good but needed a deep charge it had been bled down so much.l So needless to say i charged it up and the next day....Car wouldnt start. No gas to the carb....So i pour gas in the bowls and wahhhlahhh she fires up but still no gas through the lines. Ive blown all the lines out and still  nothing. So apparently my pump is bad.

I will be putting an electric pump in near the gas tank as i dont feel like fiddling with the mechanical. Too much stuff in the way with the AC and Steering pump.  So hopefully soon she will run on her own will and i can get it tuned

Congrats on getting it started even if your not getting fuel. Prob the pump as you suggested if the lines are all clear. Could also be the pick up screen full of crap in the tank.

That may be the case if it wasnt a brand new tank and sending unit

Yeah i wish i had more time but the vacations i took helped alot. Pretty much dedicate Saturdays to projects and since im still single and childless at 36 im sure that allows me a little more freedom then most. I have 2 mustangs though so im itching to get back to work on my 65 fastback Eleanor build.... So im trying to get this bad boy running and tuned so it will be drivable. I am just a bit adhd so i jump around a bit too much. I still have a ton of othe rparts for this car. I have a whole aftermarket guage set and so on.

Thanks for all the kind comments gents
