Cancelled my back-ordered front bar with Jegs... ADDCO changed my ship date for the 3rd time.

Picked up a small body bar from 6speedamc.

I refurbished the bar and brackets (wire wheel and tumblers at work).

I ordered 15/16 poly bushings from Prothane and will pick up hardware from my local Fastenal...

Should have everything by weeks-end.

Slowly, but surely...

I know he get's buried with work sometimes and then just falls off the planet until time allows him to get back to the toys.

I did the A/C delete... 42 pounds of crap off of the front tires...

Still need to relocate the alternator. Not sure I want to put the effort into finding a non-A/C alternator bracket, so I'll probably fudge it...

I don't need to preach this to the choir, but each time I do something, I find two more things to do hiding in the shadows... lol...

I found SPEAKER WIRE spliced into a wiring bundle. Who does that? So now I need to chase that down and replace with single strand wire... The open vacuum ports are multiplying... I'm not sure how this car even ran. I can't believe I drove it home from Erie, PA last fall...

Hi Gregg. Are you going to make it into an A Sedan or American Iron car?
We're headed to Mid - Ohio next weekend.
Hopefully got the Gremlins out of the Spirit. Trying to get it into the 1:20's

Spirit...

Not really sure...

The A/S rules as I read them are more restrictive, but Nelson (assuming they resume a full racing schedule) is basically an SCCA track.

Lots to do before I have to pick one or the other...


BTW... "hopefully got the Gremlins out of the Spirit"... groan. LOL
