time to shim the body


the more I look at this, the more I think the shims are more of a problem then a solution.edited When I put the body back on the frame I put the stock shims back in place....edited

last thing I did today was pick up some 2013 grand sport tires/wheels...edited

I need to get different pads (without the weights - or cut them off)

only my camera could make a 335/30 19 tire look narrow..


this is sitting on the ground so I could drop the car down an inch or so

An open header, no door, big block Vette burnout would be quite an experience. Shoot some video, or at least find a local car show and charge admission for a wild ride! If I was close by I'd hop in line for that!

didn't get a lot done on this today - but got started with a cooling mod



see the problem?

I need to close this gap up a bit, but ultimately I'll simply move the intake up and put a shade on the top so it draws first from the bottom...

it does look good

Not a rant - simply wondering if anyone else is dealing with this.



I have a Miller Elite helmet I bought early 2014. It has worked as expected since new, but recently the dimming function seems to be possessed. My first thought was battery, and I replaced it, that helped but it still either doesn't dim or dims then doesn't come back to see-through. Replaced the battery again, replaced the protective lens, dusted (gently) the lens and sensors... no joy. Anyone else dealing with this? I've reached out to Miller but probably won't hear back for at least a couple days.... are sensors a wear item? I would hope that replacing $400 helmets every 5 years is not the answer.... of course, if it is.... what do you like? this helmet is starting to wear on the pivots so I won't be terribly upset to give it a full update (I like that it doesn't fog easily).
