2Loose Willy's Gasser Project, ..................... Odds and Ends....

Needed a page for some of the misc. stuff that's getting fabbed up for this project....

Here's the front driveshaft safety hoop. It mounts between the tranny mount and the cross member for the front of the ladder bars. It is made up of all "junk" parts.... The hoop is sliced from an old scuba tank, the bars are left over from when I built the roll cage, and the end mount tabs were rear spring shackles on this car. Am welding on and painting the tabs under the car to match this, then up update this shot with it mounted in place.

Needed a rear safety driveshaft hoop, so started digging through the scrap pile.....

Hacked off a piece of some old rusty 6" pipe out behind the shop, still pretty thick, at least a 1/4", pulled some old 1"x1/4" scrap outta the pile, welded shut some holes in it, whacked on some 1" x 1/4" angle, matched up and drilled some holes for the pinion flange bolts (had a spare I could use to mock up the holes), and welded it solid.....

As this is the rear end of the driveshaft, I had to cut and bolt in a drop out section in order to be able to access and pull the driveshaft......

Some grinding to smooth it out and some paint, and it will be good to go.....

Got 'em both painted and installed, here's a couple pix....

It's gettin' busy under there!
