Never took out the stock panels. I had a new set of clear panels that I was fortunate enough to come across which ended up being pretty much destroyed. I did take the door panels off...but left the inserts in. No rattles.

Possibility of the PSCA race in Vegas this weekend being postponed. Might get to the Heritage grill installation sooner then I thought.

Looks like good news. Vegas looks like it is on. Sooooooooo I'll get to put my hands on my set of Bogart's after all. Now I'm pumped again. Time to head to the shop and help load the trailer.

PSCA Season Opener in Las Vegas this weekend cancelled due to weather. Flight reservations leap frog to next Vegas event. Looks like I will have to come up with a plan b to get my Bogarts.

That race was suppose to be the last race for the 38 Chevy screw blower deal. Next race will be the debut of the 59 Vette twin turbo.

Came up with Plan B my Buddy Tone has offered to go complete the deal for me and get my Bogarts. I'll catch up with him at the March race in Fontana CA. Look's like I have some extra time, since I'm not out of town racing. Have to get the Heritage Grill program back on track.

Hey now THAT is some serious engine porn. I like those nice, small intake ports... You could store a beer in those things.

Can't wait to hear how your TT setup runs. Should be poppin' and kickin' until you let 'er fly !!!

Thought you would like that. Never thought of that, but yeah you could probaly put a beer down each intake port. Were going full speed a head on the 59 Vette TT now. Were even working in carbon fibre and titanium now. If you liked the the tin work on that 67 we were doing, you love the stuff we done lately in CF and Ti. Debut in Fontana CA middle of March. I am taking a day off of everthing tomorrow and installing the Heritage grill.

I was across the street visiting Pumpkin tonight. Pulled out the dash inserts to show Ken my painter. We were over at the shop for our weekly beer 30 get together last nite. Ken came up with the idea of spraying a candy orange over the silver rather then painting the dash inserts and door panel inserts IOM to match the exterior paint. I think i like it.

Hey B -

That Heritage Grille install came out great - but where did the beer go...

I thought you were going to zip-tie that to the grille for a "permanent" install and a place to stash and emergency beer - "just in case"
