It has been some while since I last posted something on my Word Press site…so today is that day.
One of my ongoing projects outside of nursing is to restore my 1964 Chrysler Valiant (AP5) sedan so I can have it passed for registration. Over the last 12 to 14 months I have been working on various items on the Valiant and have had success so far in what I have tackled. The list of repairs I have done during that time would relate to…
- Modifying the electrical fuse box.
- Replacing the left rear wheel bearing.
Replaced both front wheel brake cylinders.
Flushed out Brake Fluid and renewed.
- New engine oil.
- Replaced Oil filter and Air Filter.
- Flushed radiator & replaced Coolant.
- Replaced heater cable.
- Replaced rear boot seal.
- Replaced fuel pump.
- Replaced spark plugs.
- Installed new Speco Gear Centreshift.
My next plan is to do some practice mig welding on thin sheet metal before tackling the Valiant. Once I am confident I will do the minor welding on the Valiant before the end of this year and hope to have the Valiant inspected for registration in early 2016.
Catch up soon,
