Re: Jans 53

Been slow to start on the body work. Wanted to have plenty of room for radiator and fan so I moved the motor back further than most. This required me to modify the firewall. I like the original firewall and didn't want to change the stock look so this is my solutionName:  IMG_1206.jpg

Re: Jans 53

had some 14g sheet metal laying around a decide to make new front floor board, the original wasn't in as bad a shape as I thought it would be, oh well too late now. Didn't need the battery or brake fluid access anyways so if nothing else it cleans the floor up.Name:  IMG_0604.jpg

Re: Jans 53

It's been slow going but I finally tackled the drivers side rear corner replacement. I've been dreading it because I had a bigger hole cut out than the patch would cover so, I bought 2 to piece it together. Did the usual wrestling with the patch but no matter what I did the figment was way off so I decided to cut It in pieces to make it fit to my liking. Cut it in five pieces before I was happy with it.Name:  IMG_0629.jpg

I ordered mine through Summit Racing or they can be ordered directly from NVU.
PTC


Norcal, I too am using a Mustang sending unit. Does Summit take the info from you and drop ship the unit from NVU with recalibrated sending unit?

Yes I ordered mine from summit and gave them the information about my sending unit. The first time it wasn't changed and I had to send it back, it may be better to order direct if possible.

Re: Jans 53

Spent a couple days making some tools to start banging some dents out. The banging didn't last long before my neighbor across the street showed his disapproval by beating on something in his back yard with a bat every time I paused...took me a while before I caught onto his tantrum.LOL. So I've taken a break this week. The temp for the week has been between 103 and 111 today, so it was a good time for a break.

man that's too bad about the neighbor...I've got some fellow car guys in my neighborhood so its not too bad and we all try to be respectful of everyone. With that being said, with all our kids and projects, and our houses butt up again a field so its not the most quiet.

Man i hear you about the heat. Lost the compressor in my A/C unit last thursday. (thank god it only got to 105 today vs the 108 forecast ) The wife and i have decided to replace the whole unit. That's going to take a nice chunk out of the truck budget. Anyway stay cool and hopefully you'll get your neighbor off your back.

Just wish he would have walked across the street and we could have come to some sort of an agreement instead of crazy behavior.

What is it you do at YC Honda. Hopefully something inside ��
