No pics (broke my camera)
But the bar that was in the way of my big head is fixed. Ronnie O'Brien moved it back and re-welded it. As usual, it turned out great.
Spent most of the day in the shop today, cleaning and degreasing the engine bay, I should've had the car dipped, there is so much shit on it, oh well, next time.
The "new" engine is going in any day now and there is some minor body work left.
Have to roll the rear fenders some more after cutting the rear shocks, because shock bodies turned out to be too long... efffing Vorshlag sent me the wrong ones... but that was 2 years ago, so I kinda don't blame them for not wanting to exchange them.
Thanks to Paragon Competition, the rear shock problem is solved.

Will be making a drawing of the uprights for the wing tomorrow.
Anybody got CNC skills? All I need is a couple of flat aluminium pieces, nothing fancy. I'll be happy to put your shop's name on the car in return.
Let me know.

That's it for now. Will post some pics, when I fix the camera.

I've got a fender roller you can rent to fix those rear fenders

Have you talked to Pierre about getting those uprights cut out?

Thanks. Maybe. The body guy across the street has to touch up the paint anyway, and I think he will roll it at the same time, but I will let you know.

Will Pierre do it pro bono? Tell him that a Joker FX sticker on the side of my car is worth more than a 100 billboards on the 401

Just trying to get some "sponsorship" for small things... funds are drying up

I'm sure you could work something out with Pierre. The most reasonable and generous business person I've ever met.
