he found a Sharp intake for his flathead 6.
This rare piece would match his Sharp head.
He completed the set with a matching fuel block.
Jason and his dad Mickey were amazed,
as this was made by their grand/dad.
and the linkage needed to be modified.
That was fun...
with steel lines painted a copper patina.
Looks easy but this was a tricky layout,
I should've cleaned up the wiring too...
and rough up the green paint for a mild patina.
How could I pass this up!?
The kids helped a bit,
but wow there was a lot of square feet.
this was an old work truck,
so sanding high spots uncovered the red primer.
Other parts like the headlights and hood weren't green,
so those were rattlecanned to match.
There was a point where we had to call it good,
and let Mike finish up some pesky details.
he gave us his custom BBQ.
Way cooler than this pic shows!
More in that later...
The best part was when he sent updated pics,
and they weren't of him stuck on a tow truck.I had showed him some fake patina tricks,
and he powered them out the next day,
just in time for a July 4th cruise.
Thanks Mike and Sophie!
