5/50 Put into hybernation

I have been exploring that idea, but I need to come up with a vacuum pot to force it open.  And then I have a water drainage problem to contend with.  Not to mention, rust.  I have to make sure that sucker is really painted well inside.
 
Don't think I hadn't thought about it

You were right.  I expected something would come up.  It's not as bad as it sounds Stan. . .   I'll git it

Steering column is in. . . Finished the fish plating on the frame from underneith and started to grind off all that bad welding I did.
 
I switched to .023 and everything is going much easier.
 
Dropped the Rad in from the 86.  There is NO WAY it will fit.  I need something 27" X 17".  If you look at the hood shot, there is a trap door in the front.  Cool place to hide the rad cap.

Quote from: POLARACO
 

How about a modern day pressurized coolant reservoir with a rad cap??? That way you do not have to worry about a rad cap on  the rad itself.One from a 1986 to 2002 Jeep Cherokee should work--for example.
Rad can be custom built to fit but can be $$$$

I saw one
http://www.alumrad.com/f342aa.htm
 
This will fit the ticket.  However, I would rather do like you said.  Find a production model rad.  I need a catalog.  These websites suck.  Have to pick a year and make.  I also have to try to be careful because this is going to be a performance 360 and I have limited room for the fan.  But the Rad, condensor and fan will all fit if I can find the right rad.  Otherwise, the rad will be under the car.  That will be interesting

Well. . it's been put to bed for the winter.  I am going to bring the VOAB down for the winter and work on it. 
 
But before I tucked 550 in, I did this
 

 
I'll have to be a bit creative but I'll figure out something for the corner.  Here is the air intake for  the heater, burried.  I am going to make a duct and come out of the firewall to the fender well.  There is allot of room, so I can put a filter under the fender.  Planning on making inner fenders too.  They'll have trap doors so I can get to whatever I stuff in there.  Not to mwntion, it will hide some sins in that corner.
