Re: '66 Sunbeam Minx Project - F20C/6sp/4-link/Discs...

Thanks, everyone! It's so good to see it back in the ground and coming together.

I have some bad news though. After taking it around the neighborhood a couple times and on one slightly longer excursion to drop my son off at the light rail station I was ready to film it driving. My wife filmed the startup and it barely started, idled rough, then died
I've spent the last few days troubleshooting it in my spare time. I'm convinced something went bad in the AEM EMS (1052). Unfortunately, it's so old that AEM doesn't support it anymore. So I ordered up their latest and greatest AEM Infinity EMS with F20C wiring harness. It'll be here tomorrow. Fingers crossed..

We’re back in action with a new AEM Infinity! The issue was not the ecu though �� The plugs were fouled. Probably from the old ecu just not being tuned.. Scheduling a tune ASAP

HUGE Congrats are in order!! I can't say enough nice things about how great the car looks. Keep us posted as you get it tuned and perhaps we can get a video one day when you take it around the Nurburgring.

Very nice! Excellent work.

Is the Burb/Tahoe back on the list for completion?

Given the PermaGrin i am sure your still wearin, I think the new name should be FUNBEAM!!

Hope to see you both before the summer gets away.. As many have said, you pulled off an incredible performance here and should be extremely proud!

I've been following your build from the day it was on the trailer. I must say I'm impressed with your build skills, your dedication to seeing the task to its end, and the fantastic final results. Thank you for sharing the ride with us!!

Thanks man! Nurburgring would be a dream! I'll definitely get some vids together for you guys after I get back from another business trip.

Thanks Palf! The Tahoe is definitely getting some love in order to make it more marketable. But between us, knowing myself I will probably get hooked on it again and take it further into uncharted territory. I need a new creative outlet after "finishing" the Funbeam

Thanks Nitro! It was a long ride but it was totally worth it! The thing is crazy fun to drive and gets so many thumbs up and looks and smiles.

Funbeam it is! I like it I've registered it for the Portland All British Field Meet in September (scroll down to see the Funbeam registered pic).
