  1. Anyone have an e85 compatible carburetor? Or maybe an old 4150 carb that I can rebuild/convert? Someone selling one nearby? Would be much appreciated!
  2. Well some bad news. Thursday we pulled the lt1 back out to swap out the oil pan, give it a once over and prep for a re ring, found a spun bearing. So it looks like the fast cheap option is out the window. I'm talking to my cousin who does circle track racing, he may have something I can work with.
  3. Got the doors back on! Was surprisingly easy to do alone, with a jack, and some cursing. Small problem however...I ordered the parts from Inline Tube, and both kits were 1 piece short. One side was short a press nut, the other was short the splined bushing...which is a little more important. So they are back on, but one side doesn't sit how it should for now. A got a little glass over my welds on the deck lid sanded down, and got it back on the car. Fitting it will be another day, I'll need to get some shims. Also got both bumpers hanging. Rear will get tightened up when the white on the exte
  4. Priming some more. Trunk lid, inside of bumpers, bumper brackets and the shifter I just picked up from Jared.
  5. Not in dire need, but if the ac box is sitting around for too long let me know.
  6. Stayed pretty busy over the holiday weekend. Got rear window patches in, stripped rest of the car. Treated and neutralized everything. Primered inside of doors, jambs, window channels. New deck filler panel installed, then I got trained out.. so full primer coat will have to wait.
  7. Glad everyone had fun at the meet! I'm aiming for next year I guess! Still plugging away! Got some rot holes on inner door patched up, as well as rear window area pieces. Just got to pretty them up, and I should be able to get ready for epoxy tomorrow!
  8. Ugly patched the rear section of package tray. Just to make sure its solid structurally. Ospho treated roof, sail panels, doors, jambs. Started stripping deck lid...its like swiss cheese on the inside...gonna be a lot of patching. Might be a picture of the inside of deck lid for reference.
  9. Hey and by the way, I just put my hood back on too all by myself, definitely a chore and I had to sling it from the hoist to do it but I got it doneĀ 

  10. More stripping. Roof and doors are ready. Pulled rear window, removed tulip panel/ deck filler panel. EWW. The back side of the package tray, under that panel is pretty bad. Now I have to decide if I want to treat it and cover it up, patch it, or replace the entire package tray which I don't really want to do.
