I'm having problems posting pictures. So far I'm 85 percent finished wet sanding the car down. It has been suggested that I keep the car patina. Looking at the driver side of the car leads me to say no and to paint it. If I do paint it, it will not be the blue it is now. This winter, when time permits (wife at work and kids in school) I will start to tackle the brakes, I already know I need a new master cylinder. I'm also debating if I want the original motor rebuilt, part of me wants to keep it all numbers original, the other wants a bigger motor. But I have all winter to decide.
I will try to get some pictures posted. I'm have fun with this
Dang. I missed last meeting and haven't looked at site for awhile
That sounds like a blast to drive!
You have seen me drive.
You have been in the car with me.
If I have more than 44 hp, I could probably break something.
If I have a back up in the garage taking up real estate, then chances are nill that it will break.
If I were to get rid of said back up, bam!
That is just how it works.
I was using this for reference.
I have been driving it since Tuesday and I am a happy camper.
The noise and smell was very missed.
I do have to fix the leaking valve covers as they saturated the heater boxes and they put out a ton of smoke right into the car.
I guess while I am in there I should check the valve lash as I have not touched it since I put the engine in all those years ago.
I might get some of the pep back if I do.
I may also redo the shifter rod bushing so I can tighten the shifter back up.
While I have it out I may also put in one of my Hurst shifters or the Bugpack Hurst knockoff that have been lounging around...
We shall see on Saturday morning.
