I like tucking or hiding both fluid and electrical lines to the maximum extent and would agree with Russstang, flipped would be ”cleaner”. But since you are waiting for AN fittings I’ll bet you’ll whip up some pretty nice plumbing. Once complete it will be “show & go”. 👍

Thank you KJ! You know me, I'm all about the clean/sanitized look. However, in this case I was going for the 66 Cobra oil cooler look.

I think in the grand scheme of things this addition will work well with the overall look of the car. I think the AN fittings will fit in well and match my fuel lines.

Lmao! I'm with you. Problem is when I think I'm done I think of something else :unsure:. Lol.
…and then it makes me think of something. If you won’t put a pin in this thing for yourself, do it for me…

I'll get there eventually Russ. Only so much I can do before it starts looking tacky or gaudy lol. Have to know when to call it quits.

I'm pretty sure this oil cooler is the last addition. I have a grill cover that was installed, but it interferes with my hood. I may have my fabricator fix it and then I'll reinstall it.

Oh and fixing my rear bumper and THEN I should be done lol.

I don’t know,,,,,
Half the fun of owning an older car (and this hobby) is working on them. I know I fully agreed with whomever said it here on VMF: “they are never really finished” or “are they ever really finished”…. 😄👍

Then you’ll see some billet door lock knobs and on and on it will go… T-bird needs some love.

Damn, Russ. You must be clairvoyant. My new trunk latch wasn't working right. So, I had my powder coater clean and coat the old one.

I installed it on the 65 today. When I was done I fired up the T-Bird and got it up to operating temperature just to circulate the oil and use some gas.

I agree the T-Bird needs some work, but the 65 is priority until I get back from California.

So, the T-Bird will see minimal attention until early next year most likely.

Okay Everyone,

I needed my fabricator to build my P/S cooler lines. So, after talking it over with him we decided to just pass the project over to him all together. There were a couple other small items I wanted him to address anyway.

He said he should have it done in a day or two.

He has been working on his 1936 Chevy. It's coming along nicely.

He got my car up on the lift and I explained to him everything I would like done.

Here is my fabricator's 1936 Chevy. I'm no Chevy guy, but this thing looks cool.

I hope you didn’t show him that rear bumper!
I actually did Russ. A few months ago, but it's too late for him to fix it before the show now.

But, he said he will fix it for me eventually.

Digging the Champ 500 wheels!! Always liked those :)

Chris
Yeah, he was telling me they don't make them anymore. I like them too. Something about a wheel with a spinner/knock off that just looks right on a classic car to me.

It was just the obligatory bumper joke.

Oh I got it Russ. Just clarifying that some of the other things I have him doing is not the rear bumper lol.
Run the rear bumper as is. Maybe the look will catch on. I've never been asked about mine at a cruise in What can I say, my car is not an eyecatcher. Just fun to drive and disturb the peace, but the day someone asks I'm just going to tell them the rear bumper looks like that because it doubles as a wheelie bar at the track. (Lies) :ROFLMAO:

Good point. I might just do that. I have never been asked about my bumper in person. Only here where the pictures glaringly show how crooked it is LOL. In person people really don't notice it. However, I'm sure at car shows where people look closely and judges are looking to separate one car from another may use it against me LMAO!!!

Oh well, I still think my car is beautiful, handicapped @$$ and all LOL....
