Let me know what your travel arrangements are and I'll be more than happy to pick you up at the airport, meet up for dinner or whatever.... and if you fly in a day or two early, you got a place to stay as well, if you fly into the San Antonio or Austin area...

Oh Man... now my non-attendance is really starting to suck. I just can't work my schedule enough to make this one.

A little update, the car was started, and a little issue was discovered...

The trans case was cracked at one of the coolant line ports...

Corey pulled the trans, welded the case, and will have it back in by Monday Evening... Or about the time I leave Benin Africa in the rear view mirror...

I'll be in the shop Wednesday, after getting home Tuesday evening... As long as no travel problems crop up... Two long flights, Benin to Paris, Paris to Detroit, and then a short flight from Detroit to Austin... Can't wait...

I think its funny that a Texan in Paris, coming from Africa, will be thinking about his American Muscle car which was made in Canada and designed by a Korean.

Yahhhhh, I'm on the beach in Contonou Africa.

Just had lunch, going to browse around for a few minutes then go take a long nap, and be ready to leave the hotel at 8:00 pm for a 10:40 flight to Paris...

Hopefully by the time I land in Detroit from Paris, Corey will be close to having the trans back in the car, and we can start tuning Wednesday or Thursday....

I really hope to be abl to drive it this coming Friday so I can get a feel for her again.... It's been six long months.... but it'll be so worth it...

So,

Tomorrow Chris, from ProEFI is coming to the shop to help Corey with the final set-up and tuning of Brandi's ProEFI system...

There are some current upgrades and items we'll be installing and other goodies to make it all work together...

There is a new CAN display that I'll be getting as well...

I'll be heading to BlackJack speed shop probably monday to get the new tire mounted... I was headed that way yesterday, had the wheel and tire off the car and in the truck, but it got to late and jet lag was catching up to me, so I decided to wait...

I also need to meet up with Pete for an alignment... Maybe monday or tuesday... Where will be decided by availability of an alignment rack...

It's coming together, but why is it always a thrash right at the end to get everything ready... lol... oh well... If all else fail's, I'll put the car on the trailer and throw hte clothes in the back, and head out... Some of my priority list has gone by the wayside... I'll take care of registration stuff after the mile... Most probably wont be driving her on the street before then anyways...

You need a ride? I'm going to have 5 empty seats in my Suburban. I'll be heading down from Dallas by way of California.
