That's a nice GPS gauge, Tom. Never seen one before.

Ya Bob, it only shows mileage on this unit but that is what I wanted. Found another that had both RPM & Mileage. Found them on the "Bay". They are China cheep-o units but it works fine.

T'was garage cleaning day. Intended to put the Hupmobile roadster in the back garage. After an all night rain, the dolly got stuck in the soft lawn. Gonna have to get some young muscle to help me move it tomorrow.

Removing it from the shop revealed the roadster pick up. I haven't seen it for quite a while with all the crap that was stacked around it.

Back to the Bantam. Found the best route for the shifter cable and made the appropriate holes in the aluminum panels. Did a number of minor tasks such as making a cap for the distributor recess in the firewall/cowl.

Gess it's raining all over, rained cats & dogs all day out here on the coast, more all week.

Some of us store our scrap metal on a bench or rack but you just got so many toys you have to use them for storage.

I'm starting to hear that BB clearer each day. Keep at it buddy.

Oops, Had to cut access holes in my new rear wheel tubs to finish welding the main cage hoop.

Got out the JD2 bender and started on the door bars. Put a curve on the end for more shoulder room. The driver's door bar has been trimmed to fit.

The last pic shows the placement of the door bar. They won't be welded in til the car is almost finished.

Looking real fine Bob.

I'm I right that you are going to have both door bars welded in and not pined so you can swing them out to get in? On my vette I had two bracket welded to the main down bars with sleeves for a bolt on one end & T quick connect pin on the other. Looking at the angle you have them mounted doesn't look like it will be to hard to get in and out. May want to look at a swinging unit for the driver side.

Keep at it and stay well/safe from us on the coast.

I think you might have been a pipe fitter at some point in your life.
Looking fine!!!

No Pops, never a pipe fitter. And not very good at rollcage fitting or MIG welding pipe to pipe. But, as long as it is strong...

Tom, not sure I'll have to make swing out door bars. I have the kit on hand if needed.

Today I primed the new parts of the roll cage and select other places with a 1 1/2" foam brush. I did this so all of you folks who are hunkered down would have something to do. Watch paint dry.

Included is a real time pic of Minnesota spring, Easter Sunday.
