as per usual.
installing everything takes much more time than i anticipated.
for instance i had a cracked motor mount.
i already know this so there is no earthly reason for me to say to myself.
self i will be done in 5 minutes.
but now all i have to do is install the rad ,connect a few hoses and 1 throttle cable.
i will be breaking it in today

i am still breaking it in. going for drives at various speeds and not staying at any one for long.
unsuprisingly i did just find out that it is very easy to pass cars quickly on the freeway with a 75mph speed limit.
my antique speedo only goes to 80 so i have no idea how fast i was going.
i wasnt hammering it at all... :D
