THX, hoping they get busy on it (have been the past 2 weeks), come Feb it's been there for two years. Perfection takes time....right?

 So the 'snowball effect' didn't happen?  It usually hits everyone. If not, you're the first.  Thus the pair of emogi's.  [lol] ;)

Thought about this last night a little, the only thing I can think of is instead of a 25.5 cert, I decided to do a 25.5 everything except the funny car cage, we'll do that at a later time. It'll still cert at 8.50et, which is fine with the first engine. So less work to do  [lol] [lol]

Yup, always something.  But, its so much easier to do it now, while it's in the shop than try to get it back in later.

Oh for sure. Wish I had a tube bender... I have a tig welder now but I need to learn how to use it  [lol] [lol]  And anything to do with welding and safety he is doing for sure.
I have ALOT to do when I get it home. I doubt it'll be done by fall of 2019 but I'll try my best. Fun project!!

Went to GoFast yesterday. The new valve covers fit good now that we relocated the ProCharger so that's good news I can use them on both engines now.
Checked the radiator fluid in the Burgundy car and its good to -10 so no fixing there. Still waiting for the new carb to arrive then I have some goodies to put on it this winter.

Stopped by GoFast last night. The guys have come up with a killer plan to move the engine back 2" so hoping this gets completed in the next week so we can order the driveshaft. Talked about strengthening the rear upper suspension mounting on the car as well. Should be bullet proof when done. Lots to do yet to get this car home.
