    Thanks, Adam. This one took forever to edit with all the fast-forwarded footage, added text, added music, etc.

    Next episode was shot about a week ago; covers the engine that I sourced for the truck. Had planned to include it in on this episode, but it was long enough already. It should be a short one unless I decide to add anything to it.

    I would like to ask why a man with an air hammer would drive out rivets with a hand punch and hammer tho?

    Damn good question! After I killed the first air hammer, I wasn't expecting the second one to be very useful. This was also my first time removing this type of rivet and - as you've surmised - it turns out that I was spending way too much time with my cutoff wheel, grinder, and ball peen when I should have been using the air hammer for most of the work.

    I use an oxy acetylene torch to burn the rivet heads off and then use a good air hammer to push the rivits out. Did my whole frame in about 15 minutes.

    My oxyacetylene torch setup is back at home in Texas. Would have been nice to have that available.

    Well, I'm still plugging away at Brutus, but I recently checked out some video I shot of my '72 Bronco project a few years ago (paid $1400 for it - it was ROUGH), and I think I have enough for several episodes. Posted one early this morning and it's getting a lot of views, which doesn't surprise me much.

    Anyway, here's the linky -
