We were discussing that topic today. I was wondering when the right seat to C5F II was going to chime in.

We also discussed the MSD 2 step dilemna and the miss-fire CEL code. Got it figured.

Gopro Car Cam

Have had a few tests run's in the Caviler, great results. Now that I have read all the directions One little setting tweek and it's all good. Will have it mounted on Pumpkin and others for some great video of C5F II.

Gopro upate: Test drove it today on setting 3 rather then the default setting 4. Setting 3 is best in my opinion. Think I'll go with that setting for road trip to C5F II.

Well it's full speed a head on painting dash and door panel inserts, as well as adding ABL to the dash. Will be ripping out the door panels soon.

The only thing in my pockets is the bottom Bud. I'm extremely lucky and fortunate with the help and support I have garnered over this winter. Your right I have been on a torrid pace alright. But the pay off is in sight.:5thgenvert: Besides Pumpkin has to be at his best for C5F II. The next few years I'll be in a rental again.

Here's the to do list before C5F II:

Stradle Craft to paint engine bay and underside of hood, inserts, speedo/tach trim and 4 guages eye lashs. Ken keeps telling me the invoice is in the mail. Yet to see one.

My Bud Derek ( Woody 55 my co-pilot to C5F II) will help me finish 2-step and install line lock , while Ken has Pumpkin's hood for painting. Then Pumpkin moves two shop's over for the engine bay painting.

Install up-dated Vararam, maf sensor and axels.

Piece of cake. I'm sure it will go down to the last minute. But I am enjoying a nice cold beer after work right now. It's all good.

Yep We were on an episode of Pinks Out Takes. But that was a couple of years ago. Pro Street was a Exhibition show at Pink's All Out in Vegas. I was also on as well you would have seen me with the 38 Chev on the line.
