    1. I don't know if some of you have heard of all the crazy "eventful" stories of traveling to and from Vintage, but the second pic of the Bristol 70 car had a blown tire on the way and they hit a guard rail... The owner was ok, but it was so sad to see this original Bristol get hurt on the way. 

       

      Last pic is of Brandon Washburn with his girlfriend Tory, Cindy and Andrew Wilson, and Robert Olemedo with his son. A great group of friends on or way to the Sierra Nevada Brewery for dinner in a shuttle bus.

    2. been a while since i've updated, but there has been some major work happening in the garage.  i'm much further along than what i'll share here, but i just would like to post a few images at a time.  i'm realizing i didn't take enough photos throughout the process, so i'm going to make sure i take photos of everything before i proceed much further.  will be good to have records of all the surgery!

       

      anyways, it started by cutting out the old rusted driver side frame rail.  i don't have room/space for a rotisserie, which would make everything easier, but I decided instead of that i could use my engine hoist to support the front of the car via chains through the shock towers while it didn't have a sub frame.  below is a frame rail-less shot and of course all the tools on the floor.

      frame rail installation wasn't too hard, but i had to be careful to make sure it was positioned correctly.  i tacked it in a couple of times and it wasn't just perfect, and had to remove and redo until the measurements were proper.  anyways, now i have a brand new drivers side frame rail! 

       

      with the frame rail installed, i was able to move on to the driver side inner sill.  cutting that out left the car with about zero structure since the floor pans were so compromised, so that was another instance of tacking in place, measuring, guessing, re-doing and crossing my fingers.  I think it ended up in the right place!  the photo below shows the vehicle without the sill, but you can see the new frame rail if you look closelyIMG_2691.thumb.JPG.6a48ab51e5521c85bf2d50cf70009268.JPG

       

      and then heres the inner sill clamped in place during installation

      there's a lot more that has been done since then, so stay tuned for updates! I'll try to work through the process i took.

      It feels like I hit a road block, and things have stalled, waiting on parts to come in like the new fuel pump and sending unit. It has really put everything in slow mo... With the wiring being possible the easiest thing to do it's kinda the hardest! C101 connector also came in but I don't want to use any of the old wiring, it just looks to be in bad shape.
