    Fed Ex came with some more on Saturday
    Fed Ex delivers on Saturdays...that's why I like them...okay first pic of blue boots and another set of the same plug wires...that is so I can run two longer ones around the number 3 tube and number 5 and 7 plugs will go underneath that tube....






    Got the NOS brake booster to...lots better shape then the one in the car...already have the gasket for it also...

    Put 58 miles on her today....let the wife have first try..OMG
    First of all I am 6 foot tall and my wife is only 5 foot 3 inches...with the seat all the way forward I will fabricate some wooden blocks and hold them on with some rubber bands or something else...we tried it twice and she stalled it three times...after that we went to Sonic and then a nice winding country road drive...I told her two watch and practice on her foot control...anyways it was 85 degrees and beautiful...I took the eyebrows off and used some synthetic rubing compond to clean up the headlight bezels...

    sorry about the hairy chest and man boobs in the reflection...

    Took out the driver's side alignment access plate
    I call it the alignment access plate because it gives you access to the following...



    It was damaged by the brake fluid coming out of the mast cylinder...the top rails were rusted along with rust on the covers gasket...I sanded the rust off the top and scraped it off the gasket with a razor blade..it's not leaking anymore...



    All stripped of paint....



    and painted again with the same gloss VHT epoxy paint...I swear by that paint...good thing is no primer needed on bare metal..

    Removed the rear cover....was a 2.94 and now is a 3.55
    Cover was glued on with silicone...had to use a pry bar to get it to budge....scraped most of the silicone off and then used the proven MEK with a scotch brite pad and wah la it's all off there now...letting it drip until tomorrow night and if it is stopped I will put the new rear cover on...with the right stuff..

    little more wiring work tonight
    Started the wire loom after I rolled the Aspen back on the other side...if you start something one way then you need to keep it the same all over...I cut and capped some unused wires and made some new connections for the electric choke..should be able to finish it up tomorrow night...great cool front headed here and due on Friday evening can't wait...
