    Looking GOOD; and your 3 point turn kinda reminds me of that Ferrari footage from a couple of weeks ago!
    With the camera, manual steering, no driver's door, three speed and two cars that are never there, I was busier than a one legged man in an ass kicking contest!


    • yeah, I'm thinking that R2 would have a JT in the serial#


      • Worked on getting this aftermarket ignition switch mounted instead of flopping around having to use two hands to start the car.

        Using the motorcycle front sprocket lock washer, I modified the teeth enough to get the ignition switch held in place.

        The teeth are bent so they grip the back of the fiberglass dash opening to keep the switch from spinning.

        I think I need to flatten the washer a bit more as the locking nut sticks out too far, not flush. For now, I can work with it so I can drive the car out before I set it and my garage on fire from it shorting out on something.


        • The exhaust heat valve didn't even remotely seem like it was opening. At the risk of having cold running problems or the choke not coming off soon enough, I took it out.

          I put some MAPP gas heat on it to test it.

          It does work, just didn't seem to be on my car.

          I put in a spacer I had from the wrong header pipes.

          Exhaust is very even now and with our mild winters, it shouldn't be a problem.
