I'm so sorry to hear that Robert. I've been there and know the feeling, but as time pass's you will be able think back and those fond memories will put a smile on your face.

Not bad... Working a short job in Houston. Corey commented to me that hanging the mufflers is all that's left on the exhaust system... Then tidy up a few other things and see what we see...

Yes, and with my handover notes this am, they stayed late last night and may finish the job during the day today... Dang it... I need more time but hopefully something offshore will come in by the end of the month...

My condolences to you and your family, Robert. My Dad is also gone, but I'm going to listen to your words and hug my Mom when I see her tonight.

Mehhhhh, not much to talk about lately.. Corey has been making progress, the exhaust is completely done... #.5 inch from the down pipes through the mufflers and out the back... I'll try to post a couple pics...

Alan the electronics guru worked on cleaning up the wiring around the ProEFI puter. Between that and the dry sump hoses and fuel lines there was exactly .00037 cubic inches of space on the passenger side of the motor... Changing plugs, a frequent occurrence on this car was a flat nightmare...

Alan also put a kill switch in for the ignition, so we can crank the motor over to evacuate the oil pan after sitting for a little bit prior to starting the car...

I'm currently offshore and so I have nothing else to offer other than the final tuning should start shortly after I arrive home.

I'm also going to have the fenders flared just a touch to allow for the 315/40/19 tires to fit fully under them without having to lift the rear suspension back up... I do not want any tire rubbing at 250+ mph... if I can get her going that fast... in a mile... I'll try to upload the pics from my iPad.. Not working on my puter...
