Cool - a hot-pink rear-end.

Cool If you have fewer parts I would still do them. Just sandblast them down to clean white metal and the rest is easy.

Sure send the hood over. I have 3 but they all need some sort or repair work. Hopefully I can find one that needs the least amount of body work. Did I mention how much I am enjoying body work???

Thanks Steve

I have a florescent Orange too if you want to be safe Roger??
Patrick bring the rear axle and we could do it too. Same rule apply, stripped down but most important on those is as grease and oil free as possible. Tends to stink up when heated.. If everyone is looking for that chassis black color we could just fire up the big oven and do it all at once.

Rear-end Deja Vu

Why do I feel like I've done this before?

Keep that thing stripped down and we w ill powder it up. If you want to bring what you want done and I will powder it up and you can through whatever you want into a donation can. I really don't care about the money. Just want to share what I have with the club. The ovens are pretty inexpensive to run, and powder costs about $10-$20lb depending on color. So I would say let just get er dun!!!
Anyway offer stands. Keep us posted on the yellow submarine..

Well - I wasn't going to take it that far down - but really I'm only a few bolts away from that now. I can't sand-blast it though.

I think, just to make it worth the effort to fire up an oven, I'll bring the rear-end, 4-rims, and the brake backing plates. I'm going to just paint the various front-end parts (because I already have).

Then you can pass the offering plate - hallelujah.

Sounds OK to me. Can you have the wheels blasted or will that need to be done here?? The axle housing would take about 20 minutes in the blast room at best, wheel sometimes take a bit depending on what they have on them now. And if Mr. brown wants to bring his we may as well fill that big oven up. It is 8'X8'X20' long so plenty of room. So if we are going to do this, everybody clean up your stuff and come over and we will get it done...

I have a smallish blast cabinet at work that would require me standing there for 2 hours per wheel - best guess. These are all still the stock Ford wheels with 1965 paint on them.

At the very least, maybe I'll just blast the faces of them with your big blaster - and then paint them. Not really sure if I want them chassis black of some other color - like red. The interior will be red and black in whatever combination of stuff I find cheap. A headliner is coming, it is red. If I keep that bench seat - it is black.

As for the rear-end, it is really clean on the outside, but really rusty. I think the thing sat in a field since the mid-80's. But I will rinse the inside out with solvent to get her as clean as new. No smokie.

Perfect. As far as the wheels the only issue we might have would be time. I could blast the rear housing and all four wheels in about an hour if it is just old paint. I have several reds in stock so if you want them red I say do it. I can run the small oven and just rotate the carts like I do on a normal day.
We will just see what comes over and go from there. If we cut the cars up quickly we can spend a little more time on the pretty stuff...

Steve, I don't imagine spending more than a half hour hacking off those quarter panels (famous last words, I know). But yeah, with Patrick's rear-end and mine and 4 wheels, and 4 backing plates (and I think that's it from me - I'll paint the rest), that's probably more time blasting than coating... me thinks.

Thanks again.

Oh and before I forget, as I tend to do sometimes -- a big thanks, a muchos gracias, goes to Gene for cruising over here the other day and bringing me 4 factory Ford rims for the Ranchero - and helping me haul that 8" rear-end up the hill. He's the man!

And pretty soon Gene, I'll be calling you to take you up on that offer you made to assist in the floor replacement (which includes practically stripping this to nothing). I have almost everything here to start that, shy of just getting it over into the garage. Real soon now.

I got the punkin pulled out of mine today and started draining the molasses out of it. Clearly had just about reverted back to crude. I'll put a quart of solvent in there and slosh it around a bit and it should be "oil-less" by then.

Gene - as soon as I have the wagon in a temporary place, I'll be sure you get notice. But you are still up for going to Steve's on the 26th though, right?

I spent the second half of the day today out cleaning the axle housing of the goo it had inside and out and then cleaning the backing plates and pumpkin. I'll blast the backing plates at work.

During the week I will have the two tires removed from two of the rims Gene gave me so they are ready. I hope to have the headliner in this week to have some idea of the red to coat those. Will bring with. I think that's what I'm going to do.

I picked up some 14" stainless trim rings and some nice stainless poverty caps from an early Meteor at the swap meet Saturday. They'll look really nice against red wheels.

So far it's just me an Gene - unless anyone else is wanting to cruise over there on Saturday with us. Steve, let's play it by ear. I'm inclined to do the remaining cutting first to get it over with, then do the powder coating.

Let the fun begin...

Stopped by a storage facility tonight on the way home from work and secured me a 10x20 garage to store my wagon in for a little while. They had a special running for 4 months. This means I can now play musical cars (literally) and get the Ranchero into the garage. Four months... I wonder if that's enough time.

Have been slowly collecting parts for it. As I mentioned, I'll be converting the entire suspension to a 65 V8 setup, new pans, all new weatherstipping, etc. I'm buying the windshield from Larry [BadBird] and still needs carpet and door panels, but still shopping around for the best price. These are pricey doodads.

So as soon as it is in the garage I'll start posting pictures as it comes apart then goes back together so you all can enjoy the fun vicariously.

Here's a picture of the pile of parts that are inside the house. Parts are literally everywhere though.

Did you find that NOS `62 dash clock? I could use a spare. So what was the coolest stuff you've uncovered so far??

I haven't really been buying bling yet -- although I must say the Jag cap like you and Jeff installed I think is pretty cool. I do like the Meteor hub-caps. And beginning this weekend I'm sure I will be uncovering all kinds of un-cool stuff! That makes me kind-a nervous.
