Re: PO has me PO'd

Jaros, I just want to say I appreciate your consistency. As a guy that works in fits and starts, I love seeing people making regular progress! How far are you from running and driving this rig?

First off, thank you! It is a labor of love, but being retired it is also a great way to keep my mind and hands busy...

Secondly, I have no idea or plans for that outcome, other then a anniversary coming up in June20th for a celebration of the brand in Harrisburg, Pa. Hope I don't have to trailer it there, EMBARRISING, but, I do want to install a dry sump system, next on the list of to dos

Fits and starts should be my montra

Just walked out of court, beat a speeding ticket for 55mph in a 25mph work zone, pulled the marine corp card and he said" sempre fi"

Re: PO has me PO'd

still searching for the right position to mount gauge. using the heater control mount screw (1/4-20) I put a hex drive stud in it with a flange nut.

DON'T use slotted screws that come with the mounting kit, the screw driver will slip and gouge the mount or worse yet your dash

I think I will try to use the other mounting screw for the heater control, since this location looks like it may cause problems with my shifter

Re: PO has me PO'd

as you can see the angle of the sport buckets have the angle wrong, so it will have to be the utility seat bracket, the keeper bracket is not on the ps, and when done will raise the seat up about 1 1/2"

taking bolts out, 2 snapped sounds like they may break, so put studs in, will reinstall with lock tite, easy enough to put a torch up there to break bond if need be

X is where the fitting goes, pretty big cavity in trans

Re: PO has me PO'd

Thanks Jesse
Decided to put on the seat backs, ss#10x 3/4" screws, I hate phillip head screws, ordered some square drive today from Mcmaster Carr

I watch a show on Utube and he says to wax paint and rusty metal with tolette bowl wax(new) ring . So for 6.00 , I thought I would try it on my seat backs. Keeps the patina I was looking for, but protects the metal from further rust
