    Yeah, that is too low for a good driver. My red car drives like garbage…and wearing itself out with every mile.

    Hey Matt, on the left shocktower that we were talking about  😉  Can we put the original beam number “1131492”  in the middle with the other stuff.

    I’m sure we have some decklid mounts here. Don’t buy any.

    I have a 4 tab hood out back on my vert that Creig was gonna buy…if its better than yours we should trade.

    Drive-ability today. I was looking at the spring plates. We talked about notching them. I can’t see any marks from them bottoming out on the stops. It seemed to ride decent when I drove it. I’m going hold-off on the notches until I drive it again.

    I did my normal rounds on the engine, then went over and tidy’d up a few things.

    • nut-zert on the coil
    • re-routed a few wires and took off any plastic collars on connections
    • swapped faulty electronic ignition for points
    • increased idle jet to 55
    • measure/marked true TDC
    • adjusted advance base line and limit to 11-29 degrees
    • hooked-up and adjusted choke
    • removed the pre-heat flap from the air cleaner

    Welded the spring brace back to the skin and touched up with some anthracite paint.

    The rest of the NOS brake parts made it yesterday. The master cylinder looks to be 55+

    Yeah, it gets pinstripes. We have a little more finish work to do.

    The nos taillights arrived yesterday. They are very nice.

    Do you really want me to order you bumpers from WW right now? Big money.

    I finished the semaphore resto yesterday.

    I drilled out the original pivot pins and had to make new ones. Step machined .116 to .098 and drilled the ends with .077 so that they could be flared like a rivet. Pain in the ass!!!

    Original lenses too. After a lot of clean up they look nice. I had to order the brass bulb holders that go in the lenses, then we can install them.

    Jdawg front and center. No joke about the oldmann not running very well. I just finished torquing heads, adjusting valve and running a compression test. The last picture has figures from the test. Looked good. I noticed some exhaust leaks. More tomorrow.

    The decklid needs some welding around the spring mount. So that it’ll stay open.

    You’re trying to slam a bus?

    Installing a bug nose cone into a bus allows the trans and engine to sit lower, reducing camber when the suspension is raised.

    If you’re trying to do a transaxle raise on a bus, a nose cone swap is not going to help. You’re going to have to get creative with the shift rod.

    Killer day. Bankshot drives and we did a bunch of dumb stuff tonight. We even got a pre-tech inspection and a few pointers.
