1948 Chevy Rear End Job…

Drove the 48′ to the hideaway shop up the hills. Buddies helped me out by replacing the taller gears back closer to stock. The current gears were 3.73:1 and now have a set of 3.08:1 which makes normal driving so much better. The freeway speeds are attainable without the high RPM’s.

First off the location of the “secret” shop is way in the hell up the mountains and you have to drive approximately a mile on an obscure road at 5 miles and hour to just to reach the drive way.

This shop has literally everything you need to do a full on restoration or custom hot rod build such as lift, CNC, lathes, full sized media blaster, paint booth etc.

First thing was to remove all the old gear oil. This oil may have been there since the was first customized with the 10 bolt rear end.

1967 V-Dub

As of today we are owners of a 1967 VW Transporter Standard. This is a totally different ride then either of us have owned. It has its own type of culture that we are not familiar with. Sure looks like a fun bus to go riding around in.

 

GL1800 Goldwing Back…

I picked up my GL1800 Goldwing from the dealership yesterday. The work looks good, I did have an issue with a burnt out rear light bulb on the lower bottom side. The bulb is a common part that I was able to get down the street at the local auto parts store.
