07-06-2015 11:32 PM holy hood, batman
After performing some honeydo's this weekend I spent a little time on the bird's hood to cut holes for the hood vents. I quickly sprayed some Eastwood rust encapsulator on it, and the fender tops and spoiler, too. It's by no means pretty, but it'll do for now.

I'm slacking. Time for an update. I got the car running a few weeks back and have been sorting things out since. Leaks galore, rebuilt an overly loud exhaust (personally I don't mind it but I do have neighbors and I'd like my wife to ride in this) which needed modification to fit, wiring issues, bolts to be re-tightened, etc. My header is melting my engine mount, I'll need to insulate them as they are close together. Typical stuff...

Here's a video of the car running:

05-31-2015 10:51 PM Finally.... it runs
After plumbing in a return line to get the fuel pressure right, and discovering that I had the 12v switched power line hooked up to a terminal that didn't have power when the key was in "start" it now runs. I even drove it, too. Next is to get an alignment and I ordered some new mufflers that are quieter as I want my wife to ride in this, ha ha
