Ooh also got my new fuel lines from the mech pump to carb.
Nice the original dodge emblem for your trunk. Was you car originally a dart custom? And bummer on wrong address geez that’s a lot of bullets.
Yes this car is a dart custom. Guy purchased it and was told it was a 340 car, he took the sellers word for it and well... it wasn't a 340 car. So he bought a rusted out 68 gts and started swapping everything over from the rusted gts to this one. The 727 sits in my garage, its the only major component not in this car. If you don't count the air filter, radiator, manifolds as well (I like my new ones better). The trunk actually looks pretty good without the trunk trim... Yes big time no good on the bullets, they are hard to get right now, I'm glad I didn't make the order for 2k like I was originally going to do. I wanted to try these ones before making to big of a purchase though.
jmo, they all look better without it
Yea it looks good, I have 2 holes on each side in the trunk from where it was mounted though...
you can use small plastic plugs for now and have them filled someday if you paint it. my valiant had 10 holes
Cosmichrome is the best I've seen but it sure as hell aint in a spray can. Gotta be somebody in Vegas with a Cosmichrome system. Of course ya have to pay for that. Doc seems to like the DIY approach.
Well I'd love the non DIY professional stuff, but that usually costs $$ and I'm a non-working full time dental student. Which makes it to where spending the big bucks in small parts isn't in my abilities yet.
Is that the system where it takes 2 guys.....spraying like hell, to get it on properly? I saw a video about spray chrome once, and was like watching those 2 guys!
The bigger the project the more equipment and people it takes. The piece has to stay wet. I actually have the equipment but have not used it yet. It's expensive. The topcoat is basically urethane clearcoat with a little violet tint to keep it from yellowing. The beauty of it is non metal pieces can be "chromed" and it can be tinted. The tint goes in the clear. The chrome is silver. Real silver hence the expense. The generic procedure is called gilding.
One more reply about it...and I'll quit hijacking Doc's thread. I just went to You Tube and watched a guy chrome paint a crotch rocket fairing. He wasn't painting it.....he was HOSING the stuff on. More was dripping off than what looked like stuck! It turned out beautiful, and it took him 8 minutes from start to finish. I guess it must all be in the chemical reaction between coats.
Hopefully it turns out good! I enjoy the thread hijacking, it gives me people to reply to when I'm not doing anything important lol. I got my carbon fiber today and I really hope my chrome turns out nice.
I think im caught up now. Let me just say wow, you made killer progress on this thing in short order. Kudos
What are you going to do with the carbon? Is it the real stuff, that you need to heat to harden? Just asking, I work in a place that builds carbon-fiber aircraft parts.
Wow the past couple weeks since I've posted have sucked!!! I have literally been all day with patients, then every night until 10ish studying for my National Boards part 2. I just finished, let's hope and pray that I passed! If I passed all I have to do now is pass my Licensing exams in the spring...
Thanks man! The car has actually been sitting in the garage collecting dust the past couple months since I've been way to busy with school to work on it. That coupled with it being 105+ degrees every day... Hopefully I can start tinkering with it a little, as long as I dont have to buy anything expensive because boards and licensing are costing me 5k...
The carbon fiber is just cheap 10 dollar 3m sticky tape lol. I'm planning on putting it in the middle of my console. If it looks good I'll probably put it in a couple other spots too.
Put it all back together... well the silver paint sucks, any time I moved the piece it started to come off, the tape also liked to pull it off as well. Its ok though the good but not 100% perfect will fit my car perfectly. Ill probably look for another silver as well, something not quite as chrome hopefully
Hey Doc, keep your hoverboard at home while you're pulling teeth!!
Man this guy got 12yrs for medicine fraud... pulling teeth is easy though, I pulled 12 on Friday in about 1hr and 15mins.... then finished some dentures... i absolutely hate doing dentures haha.
What do you not like about dentures? I Had one wisdom tooth pulled and it was hell. Now the worthless tooth above it has a cavity and I am apprehensive of having it pulled.
There is just always problems when doing dentures. Its hard for people to adjust to not having their "natural" teeth anymore, they have to be adjusted quite often because without your natural teeth the bone is constantly remodeling. Dentures don't stay put all the time and they are uncomfortable, etc etc. Lower wisdom teeth are rough, they are usually all the way in the bone and are harder to pull. If you can save the upper tooth and put a filling or crown on it do that. Your natural teeth are the best teeth.
Seeing that the tooth is not doing anything, ie. it has no opposing tooth, extraction would be the best alternative in the long run.
Depends, if you can keep it I'd try to keep it before pulling it but at the end of the day its always your choice on which treatment you prefer
I think I may try and take the car out for a drive today, I guess we will see how it does... I havent changed anything on it yet, I'm debating if I should change the front fuel lines before taking it out. I have seen that my fuel filter only supports up to 300hp, so that may be a limiter on my car as well, but it wouldn't explain why the carb gets no fuel when it gets hot.
