    Nav says 7hrs away. Going slow. I’ll go another 4 or 5 tonight then find a rest area.

    Take your time.  You’ll be to late for breakfast, and just in time for a Roosters run.

    We will build it if it comes.

    Bumpers on. 1/4” wheels spacers on the rear for adjusters clearance. The front lug studs are a little too long to fit the Porsche style closed-end lug nuts. And a bunch of other stuff in mock-up for transport.

    It looks badass on the 16” wheels.

    Oh jeezus… that looks awesome. Thanks for rallying on it yesterday guys.

    I’ll be there in an hour or so. We’ll put the old beam and trans and any other big greasy crap in the truck bed. We’ll load parts bins and such back in the bus.

    Awesome to hear Franz and John. Hot pressure washers really are a must-have in a shop…

    Made it home. Glad I wasn’t driving it. Solid ice on the road and 30mph cross winds yesterday morning from snowville to the 84/86 junction. Had to pull over in Declo for about an hour after the wind blew me about 3ft sideways doing 30mph. Then 30mph head wind the rest of the way home.

    Home safe. Now to unload.

    Damn dude, that sounds sketchy with a trailer.

    Yeah we’ve used the new pressure washer everyday now. …I’m going to wash Dan’s mango engine bay in a minute.
