Nice! I had my '66 windshield replaced last year -- different circumstances, however. It's great not to have to worry about rain & the elements getting in anymore

Though I still need to clean up the door window channels & seals. Never-ending battle against rust, rot, and degradation.

I hear ya. Its bad in Oregon for sure. I don't think we have to worry about the salt during the winter though...they just put down a bunch of sand.

The DC area was absolutely awful last year. Not only did they exhaust their supply of salt (literally, they ran out before the winter was over), but they have been using a surface pre-treatment solution on the roadways which is supposed to help melt ice & snow and prevent it from sticking. That stuff, it seems, does even more damage than salt -- or at least when combined with the salt makes a super-rusty cocktail which speeds up the corrosion process.

My '04 Ford Exploder had a rusty panel over the right rear wheel, but after this winter it switched from surface rust to full-blown rot

Lame! Part of that is Ford's fault in engineering & poorly preparing the inner and outer surfaces, but part is my father's fault for trying to repair the rust half-assedly. He didn't seal it all as well as he should have, which caused even more crap to get in and corrode things. I will literally need the back quarter of the truck replaced to keep things from getting too bad in the long run...it's a good thing I can cut, weld, grind, sand, prep & paint!

Sand and lava rock (pumice and others). It *can* scratch up the paint, especially if you try to scrub it off, rather than hose off as much as you can.

My worry would be sliding. Sand doesn't do much really, and that craptastic anti-ice stuff they use (must be applied to dry pavement, breaks down in water) ... well I don't expect it to do anything.

Yeah, that's why I'm leaving the GMC as is for awhile. lol No paint to worry about scratching!

Well....soooo..what was I saying about a 2 barrel holley? Well...sorry guys...THAT was a lie. HAHA! Yep, friend of mine had a large plenum 4 down to 2 barrel adapter and it fit right on and I had this edelbrock laying around so heck...Why not? Woke the engine up alot and that thing runs sweet. Hoping to modify the throttle linkage today so I can hook it up and see if she'll do a burnout.

I took Crustine for a little drive today and MAN! So...my situation now is...to low a gear ratio...not enough RPM and can't shift fast enough. lol I'll say one thing...there's a boat load of torque at my disposal now.

Needless to say I was in 4th gear withing 200 feet and I wasn't even floored...2nd goes so fast your tacked out before you can blink. lol Stoked with how well that 4 barrel worked out. New dizzy is on its was as I have been having troubles with my old one once in awhile. Next on the list I think is straight 2.5 inch duals with flowmaster 50's. And maybe converting to 3.73's in the future though I love the low gearing because I can haul a load and accelerate with ease. 55 seems to be about tops though. Need to also put a tach on there. Later guys.
