Topic: Still plugging away
Sorry for the lack of interesting updates. Most of the progress lately is of the not photo worthy, who cares variety. Or its a buncha cheatonium stuff I cant post pictures of.....just kidding, you'll see it all as it happens.
Mostly just trying to get parts from 4 cars spanning 4 decades to meld together which requires alot of head scratching and parts finding.
For instance, I needed 14mm x 1.5 pitch LEFT hand threaded weldable tube ends....
Get yer googlers ready and let me know what ya find.
I finally got them, from the UK.
The really funny part is even with shipping they were cheaper than the 5/8 right hand thread weldable tube ends I got in the US.
Body goes back on saturday come hell or high water. Absolutely noooo frigging clue where Im gonna put the fuel cell but Im hoping to find some mystery real estate when the body goes on.
Still finalizing steering. Then its on to a cooling system, wiring, engine install, the rest of the fuel system, and bodywork....oh and a cage....yeah, we've got plenty of time......*stresss*
OTTER: "I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part."
BLUTO: "We're just the guys to do it."
