She sees the light of day after 5 years. The speedo doesn't work but I think the core is too short in the cable. The clutch is hanging up a little but probably needs use. I'll Otherwise it was a good trip. I'll get the hood on it the next time somebody stops by.

Time to break out the TIG welder. The new stumps for the upcoming metalshaping class work well as a welding table. The patch is securely clamped from inside to outside to get an accurate marking for tipping the fold around the wire.





Flexible Spline is used to carry the opening mark down the patch...





Tacked in with the TIG




















Next we'll wrap the wire and trim the front edge to size.

Final tweaks ..... clamped and marked with a scribe..








Trimming out the rust...





14 ga rated Milwaukee shear walks right through...





Trimming around the wired edging, careful not to nick it. The wrapped sheet metal is opened slightly using the door skin pliers..











With the sheet metal loosened from the wire, a slight twist will break the sheet metal at the score even not having cut through to the wire.








This outer section will become a template for the radius on the new patch.





Trimmed....





Fitted....





Saturday Kyle will get the old metal media blasted next to the weld seam so we can fire up the TIG welder..

It's alive!!! Hearing an engine start up after a rebuild or a long "nap" is one of the joys in life. So it started in spite of the help from the two Bozos in ths photo. Well done, Henry, Gary and John!

Life  is like a roll of toilet paper the closer  you get to the end, the faster it goes!  Enjoy each day.

It runs! After a frustrating week of not being able to get it started, going over the timing, tearing the carb down four times, a couple of chapter members came by over the weekend to help. We finally ended up putting 12V to it to spin it a little faster and a couple of shots of Ether made it try. I think the clutch wasn't completely releasing due to sitting and dragging the starter down. It wouldn't release correctly when I first tried to move it but got over it quickly. It runs well, no leaks, good oil pressure and all is well. We bled the brakes today moved it back and forth for the first time since 2007 when I put it in line for restoration. I really started tearing it down in the fall of 2011 so it has been a long 5 years. A few final details along with the hood and fenders and we are a go. http://forums.aths.org/Uploads/Images/bc67755f-39d9-4024-ba10-debf.jpg

Some more work on the Biederman fenders..

A paper pattern was taken from the front of the fender to use as a guide to cut out the new piece from 16 ga cold rolled steel.








Some 19 gauge was hemmed flat and the Erco kick shrinker used to make profile templates for the horizontal and vertical directions..

















The initial shape was added with a blocking hammer and shot bag, and finished on the Wheeling Machine..








Getting close...








This video shows the progress so far, as well as the rust on the leading edge we're repairing..

Here's a quick video to show how the radius for the filler panel was done..




https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnCTqLZg9lg




With the flanges turned both directions....









Looking at the rear of the fender that was adjacent to the cab, we found flat areas that seem to indicate some rubbing was occurring. So while we were fabricating the filler panel, we added about 1/8" to shove the fender outward away from the cab.

John your Biederman will be a thing of beauty when it's done. It looks great already.
