It was decided the dash sucked, so it was off to the CNC shop to mill one instead.

The last few details, rear canard wing mounts and diff anti roll bars are just about done. Then call for NHRA chassis certification and then off to the powder coater.

It's a beautiful sunny day up here in the Great White North and Pumpkin will see the light of day today. Got a day permit for a run and drop off at Dutchman Customs for the next round of mod's.

My Buddy Heliwrench will be installing the JRE cat delete tune this weekend. Just got to drop off the SCT and JRE tune for him to load it into the tuner.

Made good progress on Pumpkin today. One little curve ball with the ARH cat delete pipe, but easily fixed. Ended the day with a little of the finest from Green Stone Brewing.

We finished off the exhaust and rotor upgrade from yesterday as well the line lock and billet pedal install. Again the TCI Line lock install was not without drama, but we finally stopped it from leaking. Heliwrench stopped by to install the tune.

With the glorious record setting weather were having up here I just had to take Pumpkin out on a day pass. Everthing seems all good and Pumpkin seems to have a little more get up and go with Ted's tune. Just a little wiring to go to bring 2-step and linelock online and a good spring cleaning and Pumpkin will be ready to hit the road for another season.
