Summer Internship Objective:

Every year LeMay Restorations has at least one feature car restored for their annual car show in Tacoma, WA. This year we have two 1956 Powell's. Our goal is to have these cars restored and driven onto the show field on car show day, August 28th 2010. Will we complete these cars on time? ...

Keep checking this blog to find out!

Quick Note:

LeMay Restorations is a completely separate entity from the LeMay-America's Car Museum. The two Powell's are family owned and restored at their private shop. The museum is a not for profit organization.

Today was kind of uneventful on my part, however when I came into the shop in the morning Tom had sprayed the yellow on the roof of the truck. All the little gingerbread things are getting done everyday. We got one of the engines in, and one of the volunteers started putting it all together.

I checked in on my car today and helped the mechanic with the timing gears, chain and harmonic balancer. All looked well so we decided not to change it. Routine check up from there, brakes, new brake fluid, oil change, tune up, blah blah blah.

I put the number decals on the odometer after I took it all apart. Kind of scary since I have never taken one apart before. Wet sanded a little bit but didn't paint anything.
