Still need to make a shroud around the bulb or else it lights up the whole bucket.
From what I've seen, that will be no problem at all for you. Waiting to see the finished result .

I just picked up a used 650 Edlebrock preformer carb, for $75, In the next couple of weeks I am going to get a rebuild kit and clean it up. Not sure what I'm going to do with it. I've been thinking about changing out my 650 holley but since I rebuilt it and adjusted my valves the holley seems to have come alive again and the engine is idling better.

Since the Holley is good, you'll need to build an engine to go with the Eddy.

Did a little work under the gasser. Been having issues with my starter either not engaging, or kicking out after a couple turns. I finally got a mini starter to replace it, so put that in today, plus a new chrome converter cover.

Thanks Alan.

I hate the shadowing that I see in most 37 retro fit light kits.

Nothing like cheap performance parts that work.

I installed one of those propeller things in my wife's Honda and didn't feel a thing.

Put up peg hooks and tools. Part of a process to improve my garage organization. Working on it to make it easier to move around and get things done.

I sandblasted the buckets tonight. Epoxy primer in the morning and then reassemble.

I knocked the old freeze plugs and cam bearings out, cleaned and put new brass plugs and melling cam bearings in. There was alot of grime behind the #5 bearing, I don't think i've ever saw it that bad.

Learned the mysteries of the brake-shifter interlock system. Now I can get one of my vans out of my shop.

Since you learned about em, can the shifter be moved with a dead battery?
