Slapped in the new seat hinge cover/belt guide for the drivers seat, that I got in the mail today. I had one on before but the mounting holes were cracked a bit so it kinda sat sideways.

Cut the front coils on the race car one coil, put the rear suspension back on so we could get it off the hoist to get the Roadster in to get it ready for the Starbird show next week. Too many other things today I can't even remember.

I haven't driven it since November so I disconnected the battery and charged it. Left it unhooked until the snow is gone.

Finally got around to replacing the oil pressure switch with the correct one for w/ gauge application. It's nice to have a working oil pressure guage once again.

72* today. I changed oil and filter, and fixed a broken key cylinder. Man, those are a b***h to get out. Not complicated, but there is no wiggle room for someone with fat hands like me.

I hope that means you're updating your build threads..


Where did you get this engine in Europe? I figured they'd be hard to find.

Beautiful!

I played with my very ugly looking (compared to Fie Ro's) engine swap by treating the surface rust on the cradle and taking the control arms off the junk yard rear suspension parts. It's a B**** taking the arms off a 20-year old knuckle when it is not still connected to the car! Leverage is at a premium!

It's still good therapy, though. I didn't have to drive in any DC traffic today. Life's little victories
