      Well, my car finally found it's way to the body shop. We painted the under hood, trunk and door jams 10 to 12 years ago and yes, it's been a slow build. So while l was waiting for the car l thought l would paint my old motorcycle helmet. Taking a chance using 10 + year old paint but what the heck. l thought it turned out pretty good. About 2 mins after l finished taking the pictures, my helmet decides to roll off the log. Bounced twice and rolled down my driveway :( A couple marks so l tried to sand them out and l think I'll see what it looks like after l clear coat it again. Maybe I'll have to do it again. Life is hard on helmets.:)

        My two garage doors are from the 60's - they're solid wood and heavy as hell.
        My brother found them on CL in Atlanta and brought them up for me several years ago.
        I checked out the usual modern metal ones and they left me thinking "aluminum cans".
        For the money, quite the ripoff if you ask me...

        Bought all new hardware from a garage door supplier (they take different hardware from metal ones,
        much beefier stuff - the doors are thicker) including new wind-em-up springs, tracks, the works.
        Winding those up was quite the pucker-factor ordeal, as it took 33 winds - yes, 33!
        No half-HP openers, either - 1HP each, on their own breakers.
        The garage is a bonafide storm shelter. So's the doors.
        Remember - "I won't leave a mess for my wife." :thumbsup:

          My 2 big doors are insulated panels so they are pretty heavy too...maybe not solid wood heavy though. ;) I have two big springs on each door, requiring 47-48 turns on each of the springs! Yeah gets a little scary when your cranking them over 40 times.

            Mechanical HELL... And dunno where to start. I used to be great with all the MoPars Ive owned. Inherited my fathers A12 Super Bee last year. He built the Shxt out of the motor. Ive cruised it a lot, fixed some fuel leaks etc.. Ran great. Ran into my buddy with the 68 SS 396 Camaro last night, (we're both over 50 yrs old) but? Drag racing began. I ran the hell out of it. Now? As of last night, runs like crap. Like I stretched the timing chain or something. Dunno where to start. Other than when I got home, battery had 12.8 VOLTS! Uuuughhhh

            Start with basics
            Plugs
            Wires
            Float level
            Timing
            And check your output on the alt to be sure it's ok
            Coil
            The question is did you win the race.

                  Definitely! My alt was putting out 15.5 VOLTS at idle... Guessing the regulator wasn't quite working? I dont have a 20 Kohm setting on my DVOM, so guess I cant really test it separately.

                      Off to body shop number two. After six months, nothing really got done. It's a 70 Stage 1 Buhog. Than we will see if it is a Hemi killer! Its a 455/400 3.54 geared 8.5. No ac, but hey, neither does my GTX. I have literally everything for the car to finish it. But no color.

                        Looks like it's time to get a better meter your going to need it. So you might have a problem with the regulator well many choices from that point on what to do. I would go over to the electrical thread and see what everyone else is doing. Might save some money extra.
