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.
