    Good to see you are working on it. I need to get my old girl out too and work on her. I played around with one of those Edelbrock carbs when they first came out, they are junk. I'm running a Demon carb on mine right now, best carb out there for Hotrods.

    You just needs some clean-up and some paint under there. Mine is not done under the hood yet and I have owned the car for 22 years now. Lol! Here is an underhood pic of mine. Some motivation for you.

    Well Scott, I'd say your under hood look is already better than mine will ever be. I'm going with "I like patina, and they're only original once" lol! Nice job with the Mauser pistol rear sight btw.

    Got another Bubba's workbench project done this morning. I really like that prairie hunter stock I put on the Ruger, so got one for the CZ527. Since it shoots the same round as the green AK, it needed some green in it. The zombie hunter laminate was a little too bright, so I went with forest camo. Not quite the drop in fit the Ruger stock had. Needed a .030" shim under the action at the front screw. Luckily I had 1 shim left from the Mosin kit. A little trimming and a hole drilled got it together. Free floated the barrel "almost" to the chamber so might have to do a little relief sanding.

    Oooo....I like that stock!

    Yes, the Mauser HSc rear was the final piece I needed. Had to get it all the way from Europe. Now I need to complete my home parkerizing set-up to put a finish on it.

    To stave off some boredom from this social distancing thing I found some more brass to load a test for that new stock and to try those new SNS 90g bullets in a tree rat load. Put them over 5g. of HP38. While I had the powder dropper set I also grabbed some of the SNS 115g Carbine bullets over the same powder charge for the 03A3. There's an outside chance of getting to the range tomorrow but not holding my breath.

    Speaking of social distancing, seems a few didn't get the memo. I was sitting here at the computer browsing a couple days ago and hear a noise outside the window. Never saw one of these in the yard before. Buckshot, I think the gate on your pen is open lol!

    Turkey must be interested in re-loading. Or it's a scout trying to see if you are loading shotshells. Lol!
