Troy,
Nice looking set of tools.

What will the tools be made from?

I loaned out my bob berg set to a PNT member. When I got it back, the "J" bar was widen out more than it supposed to be. He had his shop in San Antonio load and unload the bars. I don't how it happened.

Thank-You Hank very much appreciated. For the final wrap, I am going to make a crevice tool that conforms to the window details to see if I can get a deeper impression.

To be honest, I must share that YOU and the way you approach solutions on your projects has pushed me to think outside the box and toss traditions approaches to the side.



Thanks, sometimes i feel like i upset people more then i do help since my ways are not 100% purist. I just work with what i have i guess. sorry i didn't see you said that to me till today.

the unloading tool might be an interesting reproduction, i'd like to see pictures of that when you get it done. i have an original J6065 i scored on Ebay a long time ago. personally, after what Mike and I went through unloading and loading the bars...i hope i never have to do that again, espcially with the body and motor in it now. sorry about the finger again Mike! Also sorry about your J bar, that sucks!

that power steering pump looks familar, great job! did your sticker chip in the top right corner. the one i rebuilt for KevAZ did the same thing.

Troy, i did not realize you were out. What happened? glad you are getting back to work!

Hank- Yes, I have a problem with those dang decals chipping, it gets expensive to replace them ever time. My son has a decal printer he makes tons of water decals for his side business making custom NASCAR prints. I am going to have him work on making me a few and see how they do.

Yes- I have been out for a bit, I spent two weeks in the hospital and just got paroled over the weekend. I was running really short of breath and could barley breath and talk at the same time. MRI at the ER showed I was riddled with Bilateral Pulmonary Embolisms. For those not in the Med field, Lots of blood clots in the lungs and one huge one in the right lung.

Hit the shop Monday and It about killed me. I am slowly getting up to speed but man, I am under the gun. I got about two weeks to finish a 54 Caribbean that is headed to Barrett Jackson in Arizona, 56J, 24 Stude, 1928 Stude by May 3rd for the show and of course 3 28 packs, 2- 49 packs for June show Along with a 59 Isetta, three engines, two tyrannys, and a partridge in a pair tree. Then Im headed into a 62 C1 Corvette. I need more shop help hahahaha

well you aren't the only one....it chipped on me too. bummer!

being I work in X-ray and my wife is an RN, please do watch yourself with those PEs. it could mean a stroke or worse your life!!! you may even have some DVT running around in those extremities.

I'm guessing they have you on blood thinners? Lovanox?

If I was near you I'd be by to help in a heartbeat!!! I hope you get better really soon, we need you around for many more years wrenching on those Packards bud!
