well working on the fuel lines and wiring the lights up. got all the trim work on the body and got that in primer right now. lot of little things now that have to be fixed. had to make a set screw setup for the steering linkage so if i need to remove the body i can pull out the bolt and take off the drag link. it will be ready for May show season. had it running again yesterday,... L O U D to say the least. i was wondering if i can put baffles in the pipes like bikes have

Awesome build. good blog too.

I would rather work on a car on the lawn then anywhere else.
Weather here doesnt allow that enough but when it does I will roll onto the lawn if the project is movable.
Outside on a slab is my second favorite place to work.
The natural light is impossible to beat for my old eyes.

How true about the wife's. Most tolerate our passion, a few even join in, then there are the poor guys who have the ones that don't like the hobby.

You need to post this stuff in the "what did you do today thread".

So you gave up and built a "garage" around the car. You are tougher than me I don't get much done without my garage.

I like the way your car is coming along.About the trailer floor.I am sure you will be fine,but it is not just the thickness of the floor it depends how far apart the cross members are.If it is a factory trailer it should be fine,but if it is homemade then whom ever made it may have spaced them farther apart to save money. Just something to consider.

That is the kind of deal I like to find.You should be fine.Especially with how light your car is.

had the car running but it runs kinda ruff and stalls go on line and find out you cant use 3 primary carbs in a row they just wont work it'll run like crap. really gee why didnt i find that out before god i love the internet. so i got a tri power rebuild kit from speedway motors seems to be a pretty str8 forward rebuild. the orginal GTO tri power has the front and rear carbs blocked no air or fuel mixture screws and no power valves this kit swaps out the 2 base plates and has all jets and gaskets needed etc .so this is what ill be doing for a couple of evenings after work as always thanks for following this little project of mine and have a great night

The outer carbs are commonly called "dump carbs" because that is all they are, to dump fuel into the engine.
