New Guy Here

Recommended Posts

I'll try with the new Canon camera I picked up recently. Maybe it'll play nicer.

From the new camera. Couldn't upload it, kept getting a "-200" popup window. Mark? :confused:

Checked the valve adjustment from the initial cold setting, they were right on the money with it up to temp. (added .002" to hot value when setting them cold).

I didn't have the interface programmed at the time, but the fuel pressure & air/fuel ratio now work on the dash display. The Holley temp sensor, near the thermostat reads 180 degrees usually, and the Dakota-D one located on the cylinder head reads 195-200 typically. It may have been a little warm here because I had the A/C on for a while, topping off the refrigerant charge.

That's at an 800 RPM idle for now, may try to knock it down a few later. Depending where I look, the spec was 700-750 idle for a LS6.

Can't answer the "-200" pop up, could be a file size or type error. On my Mac, its sketchy with no sound but on my Dell is clean and crisp with sound.

X2 sounds and looks good! And i'll reiterate I'm glad I didn't know about the Dakota Dash version you got, man it looks great!

Yeah, so far I'm pretty happy with the dash setup. Looks stock for the most part, but has a lot of potential as far as available information at your fingertips. Plenty of things you can program for alarms, warning pop-ups, etc as well to alert you of trouble (both visual and audible warnings). It also has a Bluetooth app I discovered so you can program & monitor info there too. They have a lifetime warranty too, hopefully I'll never have to find out....

Mark, I tried loading that vid a couple of different times, plus on different computers, no go. Figured it may be a file size issue like you did, so just loaded it to the cloud and linked it there.

Yea, I downloaded it to my Mac, played fine but couldn't upload it to the site on either computer, -200 error. Even changed the file type and a no go. Cool vid for sure though

Interior parts paint day.

Also got the M/C & 'CUSTOM" emblems put back in their original spots the other night. When the prior owner had the car painted and new top put on, they filled the holes with duraglass. 3+ hours with dental pics and pin vices with small drill bits, and the original holes were opened up (the barrel clips were full of filler). Also painted the 'Custom' emblems. Sad, but those, plus the oil dipstick were  the only parts the original chrome shop did for me, though I got them late last year.

Also got a call from the stainless trim gentleman, said everything was done already. About a  month earlier than expected. Picked it up yesterday and unwrapped a few parts. Looks like shiny candy! Real happy, it's nice to find someone that says what they are going to do, and then does what they said.

Thanks Willie! I'm off for another week and a half, hope to get a lot done.

Time to scuff & buff the paint. I want to do this before putting the rest of the body panels, window mechanisms, interior, etc back in the car. Plus, if I screw it up, there's no point in assembling any further, because I'll be stripping the paint off sooner, rather than later (when I retire).

I did a little yesterday, looks like it'll buff out pretty nice. Supposedly, they used one of the top DuPont (Axalta) clear coats, which I usually use anyways, so it should be OK.
