Judge Phil's writeup

Here is the write up on us before the race. It actually sounds like Judge Phil liked the cars that showed up.

Race Results

So we finished 42nd overall, no black flags and were able to keep the car on the track for almost the whole race. We also got an honorable mention for IOE during the awards ceremony. Will post pictures when we get them off the cameras.

Not much time left

Been wondering where the rest of the pictures are of the finished paint job? Well lets just say that the paint is done. We have been a little busy finishing up all the other little things, so the car will be ready to go down to the Race Friday morning. If we find time we will post pictures, if not you will have to come to the race and see the car or wait until sometime next week to see how it came out.

Paint Part 1 Picture pages addition

So since the car needs to go back to the cage builder for a few modifications, we decided it was best to start working on the outside.  Enjoy!

coolers and some extra parts

Got the oil cooler sorted. Took the sandwich plate off, took it apart put some grey rtv on the leaking fittings let it set and put everything back together and no more leaking.

Also added another transcooler. the one we got off a caddy in the junkyard had a slightly larger size fitting (3/8th opposed to 5/16th that the car currently has) fortenantly it is close enough that we were able to force the 5/16th line on the 3/8th fitting so that all worked out. also meant we got around to changing the trans fluid which I left up to Pete.

Also while we were waiting for the rtv to set we started taking the lights off since we aren't going to want them on the car for the race since we won't need them and they can only get broken. We also took off the grill to make it easier to put on the coolers. Have to say with all that off the car does look meaner.

On the other hand that back of the car with the bumper off and all the rest doesn't look quiet as good. We will put rest back on after we figure out where to drill for the tow hook.

we also took off the side molding since it will give us more room to put on the number
