I put bronze wheels on my pickup (you can barely see them on the pick-the-vette up picture).... it was a risk, but I think it really looks sharp with them against the black
back to where I was a week ago...


don't see a leak (the pump with the hose on it)


the only place it might have leaked is the bottom bolt... but even so....edited


got a relay box in so I can start wiring stuff

and new steering wheel arrive


I did put DEI wrap around the hosesedited

trust but verify


Friday night picture, looks pretty much the same

success?

no

however, it was an easy fix.... so success
then came a lot of stuff like this... this was the alternator wiring

stripped it out of the harness, I'll repurpose the full-time power wire, though


installed the markers


and a battery cut-off switch



still have a ways to go... but one bite at a time

putting the new, new one to work

and the divorce is final




finally get to use this cart


this didn't last long, but it fits so I can move stuff around if needed




stiff stripped off..... more to come

I'm bringing this blast from the past up because I think it's cool. Art Morrison now has a IRS chassis that uses all Camaro parts.... hmm, wonder where he came up with that idea? yeah.. I know it wasn't available when I did this because I looked at all the options - he was still using the Ford T-bird rear....

File this under "why I blog" maybe even "why I'm poor" too still, more power to anyone who follows along and does it themselves.

onward with important, performance upgrades

new brake/clutch covers, worth 20 hp - which is damn near a Summit racing sticker

then exciting latch attachment

then... hold your breath in anticipation.... wiring

I'm going to replace the adapter with a real, waterproof plug.... these things are useless
