I haven't been working on "Nell" much recently, but I try to drive her once a week. Several weeks ago, a professional photographer friend asked if he could take some stock photos of "Nell", and here is one of the results.
I really appreciate having a few "Glamor Photos" of the car! My friend has a great eye, professional equipment, and the experience to use it well.
Yesterday, I drove Nell to a local cruise night with the rest of the classic thunderbird club. We rendezvoused at Ford Guys's shop, which was close to the cruise night. While I was there, I mentioned to him that I wanted to install a larger brake booster. His immediate response was "The stopped making them", and he was pleasantly surprised when I said that I had just picked one up on eBay! I guess I really was fortunate. Ford Guy then mentioned that he had a template for making a bracket to install the larger booster, which he has used on several cars. He disappeared for a few minutes, then returned with the cardboard template, and a Xerox copy of it for me! This will be extremely helpful... I will make a bracket from this template out of 1/16 or 3/32" flat stock, and be certain to avoid any interference issues.
