    Driver status now. Small projects are fun. 2 months of weekends. Ready to rip for ski season.

    The dash was hacked. I riveted in a piece of stainless with hooks to hold a Bluetooth speaker.

    I gave things a look over, installed Empi lady bug floor mats, and made a fuel pressure by-pass oriface to prevent flooding.

    The idea is a small hole drilled between the inlet and outlet will keep pressure off of the carb inlet valve when the engine is not running.

    i love this car. I have been really thinking of raising my car up. I can’t decide between stock, just a little low in the front or kind of high like the bug in this post from earlier. I just want my car to drive nice on the crappy roads here.

    Been daily driving for a few months now. Gave it a good look over, fixed a leaking axle seal, and brake adjust today.

    I kept the bike rack from the other car…got around to modifying it to fit new longer/bigger mountain bikes. And installed on this car.

    My friend Weston hooked me up with this Weber carb replacement for a 34pict3. Anybody ever see one of these? They’re crazy. It has the 34 mounting with a 30mm throttle plate. Looks like a 1984 production date judging by the tag.

    Direct bolt on, and runs great with a 009 distributor. Definitely more intricate than a solex. Plunger type accelerator pump, and adjustable idle jet.
