Rescued some boxes and tools
« on: June 17, 2011, 08:58:37 PM »
These were at my brother's the Spark Lines I found in pops old top box. The birds on the old cantilever box were painted in 1968 as a test for putting them on a car since there were no decals to be had in 68 for damaged cars.

Nice tools and great pictures.  :xFlash:

Any special set up - flash, f-stop, camera,...?  :beerdude:

a highly programmable P&S (IE lot of manual settings) to override  factory settings & slight corrections in PS , I latterly took a thousand photos before the camera was dialed in read the manual page by page as different adjustments were made

I still have my old axle nut threader tool. Back in the day those threaders were a must for most all mechanics boxes.

Nice haul - and great pics as usual.

I always did like those cantilever boxes. Who free handed the Roadrunner? From the trials it was a nice job.

pops painted the birds

I need to find away to preserve the box with out loosing more of the paint .  I remember as a kid this box was filled in the back of the  white Fury III IIRC it was a 68 , pops sold it in in 76 for the powder blue 73 Coronet wagon with the 400 in it ( this car was  infamous around here )
