05-22-2017 05:24 PM the hood finished
Been a while, got the hood back a week before turkey day. Had the bare metal coated w/gear grease. But still got some surface rust. Too wet/cold to work on it. Broke the edges on the louvers, got two coats epoxy primer and one coat nasty black. I spent all afternoon trying to get the springs back on. Finally had to remake my tool. LOL when I got done my hands were all cut up and bloody, looks like a bar fight.

Good guys was a blast, but too hot for me. The car kept slowing down, Made it through the first round. The guy cut a .526 light and had to brake out to get me at the line. Mine run a 15.12 on a 14.90 dial. Then the sun went down lost on a double break out. It ran a 14.78 on same dial, and I got out of it in the lights. I know this car slows in the heat, but I don't think I was getting WOT.
Got a new gas pedal to install, replace the LOKAR cruiser cable BS. Week from friday is tnt, if I hit three passes in the 13's I'll race it Saturday.
The fulie floppers were in town for Good guys.

Couldn't get in the 13's Friday. Thats the last till good guys.
Installed new kick down and throttle cables. New plugs, seems peppy enough.
Might be the 80* weather, we'll see, supposed to be 90* next Friday.
