A little this and that

Didn't do much Stude stuff this weekend. On Saturday my entire day was spent buying a new car to replace our daily driver; it is amazing how much time it takes to buy a car.

Today (Sunday) after doing a few things with the new car, I decided I needed to make a little more room in the garage for the time when the Stude comes back home for final assembly. So I started by pulling the transmission off the old flathead 6 and moving the two 3-spd transmissions into storage. Then it was more cleaning and organizing.  Unfortunately, nothing really worthy of a picture.

I also pulled all the painted interior trim and the dash into the garage so I can get it prepped to paint--it is thinner than the body metal so didn't trust to have it media blasted. So this week it will be a continuation of the garage cleaning, and when I get bored with that, sanding on the trim.

Hopefully, the blaster will finish with my car this week. . .
