Well, yesterday I installed the Breeze seat mounts and put the seats in #7073.

........also temporarily bolted the "period correct" style shift handle on and stared at it,,,,,trying to figure out the best way to make it tip down more and not be too bulky at the rubber boot.
Then I went home, as it I seem to have caught a cold and just felt crappy.

Palm Beach Raceway (aka Moroso)

Took it to the track with Hooked On Driving...

(5) 30 minute sessions, drove it pretty hard,...ran great....at the end of the night there we're only (3) cars in the final session with me.

Perfect temps and weather.

Nothing, it was raining sideways most of the morning, so I went over a friends garage and worked on his 1957 Chevy Hot Rod. All in all a good day.

Temp in the garage in mid 70's. Watched my painter finish polishing the body while I wired up the headlights and turn signals. Everything worked as advertised and the body looks beautiful(I hate getting on a roll and having to stop cause of work). I'll post a picture when I get home.

Deja Vu!
25 degrees and snowing here in Indiana. just came in from the shop, it was so warm in there at 44 F, i didn't even fire up the salamander!
I freed up all of the wiring to the ABS unit so it can be installed in the trunk. got sick of figuring out how to mount it up front where it would look good.

I relocated the oil reservoir from the master cyslinder to a more convinient location, secured all power steering lines (finally found some clamps I like). And di a little paint work on the hood hinges..

40 degrees in my garage.Wet rainy day here. Braved the cold long enough to switch out a plastic 1.5 hose joiner for a aluminum Speedway Motors 1.5 X 6" tube in the lower hose. Ordered some gas lifts for the trunk and about $40.00 in stainless bolts from McMaster Carr. Ordered some cooling parts from Jegg's. Off to the basement now to work on a mold for a fan shroud. Its warm in the basement...

20 inches of snow here last night followed by high of 5 degrees with a stiff wind. After we spent all morning digging out I did get a little time to install my seats with the breeze kit. How in the heck do you get those back nuts on and tighten them? Do I need to have my 8 year old do it cause no man hands are gettin back there?

I hope you have heat in your garage! We are heading into the teens for a couple of nights. Once the floor in my garage soaks up that kind of cold for a few days it takes the fun out of going out there for very long.
You might try taping the nuts to a long wrench, after they get started you can pull the tape off.

Last week I went for my Ohio state inspection, they dinged me for not having a windshield washer sprayer set up. Today I installed a resivor, pump wiring and tested the operation of the pump. Hopefully the finishline nozzles will arrive early next week and I can get my vin number plate!

Prepared a few more parts for the powdercoater: drilled the chassis for the brake line tabs, fit the rollbar, etc... Just a few more little things and a bunch of stuff can get coated and installed.

Not a bad way to spend a day that is 20 degrees with snow blowing in the 50 mph winds... it's gonna be a long winter.
