Certainly not. Just needed to step away from it for a bit and focus on some other things. Its still there, hanging over my head... Waiting for some attention... and money. I went to an auction recently and bought some tooling I thought I could use; big ass vintage shear.. turns out its 42" wide and not 48" like advertised and caveat emptor... I didn't measure it for myself first... so cleaning that up to turn around and sell because its not really any good to me relative to the space it takes up. Once that is gone and the money is at least partially recouped.. I'll buy some more parts for the Carryall and get back at it. Weather has been absolutely terrible as well and thats just depressing.

On the 42" shears you just have to taco the sheet when you cut it. Works GREAT that way... That sucks. At least while you're progress has slowed I can feel better about the quality of my work! Weather here feels like Seattle and the North Pole had a baby.

Seat frame progress with some booty fab sheet metal bead rolling. Wish I had an english wheel to prestretch the panels some so the warping wouldn't be quite so bad.

So it was hang out in my garage and drink beer today since it POURED rain all day. Two friends who hadn't ever screwed with sheet metal helped out; their disdain is now as great as mine. Lots of CAD work... Cardboard Aided Drafting. Template Template Template...

Almost done with this damn transmission cover.

Ha, yea its not a bad way of transferring ideas for sure.

Finishing this thing up. I need build a dipstick tube and get my shifter linkage figured out before welding it all together.

Also made an access cover for the speed sensor on the Allison; its about the only sensor I couldn't get my hands on without having to drop the engine and trans. Unfortunately this truck is built like many new ones. The trans aint coming out unless its bolted to the engine. The cover plate ended up drilled a little out of symmetry so therefore the "Top" stamp mark.

Thanks!

Dis one. http://metal.baileighindustrial.com/...ller-br-18e-36

But I am using Mittler Bros dies with it. The machine has its pros and cons compared to the MB units. It does what I need it to do but I'm sad that most of it is import product and hardware. I like to keep my $ with US products when possible but I went behind my own back and picked this one up back in Dec off of Amazon for a literal steel. I scored it literally for 25% less than I have seen one available since, and throw in Prime shipping. (even though it was a week late).

Hmmm......I assumed that the Baileigh bead rollers were private labeled Mittler Bros bead rollers. So I gather that they are a Chinese copy?

Sadly, yes. It works fine for me, but hurts my soul a little using a Chinese bead roller on my WWII truck.

Was able to pick up my seat from Upholstery this morning. Turned out fair. Material is heavy Duck Cotton (think Carhartt pants material, almost canvas like) with heavy thread for stitching. Color is actually pretty dark but isn't showing up as such in these photos due to cell phone LED camera flash. Its certainly nothing fancy and leans to the side of utilitarian which is what I was going for.





And in regards to German tools, you must have jinxed me as I had to but a 3AT collet for my Atlas lathe that was made in Germany and also scored a deal on a nice pair of Snipex electrician's pliers that are of amazing quality.... ha ha.
