Great advice provided by Mack, but Larry you are into Dumbo very, very deep. I can't wait to see the fruits of your dedication and labor.

From Joel at "Joel's on Joy", who credits Jeff Taylor; always check trans fluid with car in gear with some one holding the brake.

Does anything just bolt up on a race car lol. Thanks for letting us in on the build Larry. Will be cool to see what it does at the track.

Yesterday was trunk day. Just about done back there. Wiring has been a challenge. 09 lights and 15 lights fit in the same location but the plugs, pin location, and wire color all change.

Bad news I'm still need to order parts. It may be difficult to maintain my goal no extra freight charges on parts shipped in. My time is running out. Back to work

Bob Toy is doing all of the wiring, and what a job he is doing. Every wire is numbered, soldered, and on a diagram. The trunk is finished with the exception of power to the deck lid's light bar in back. And, and that is a big And, the dash is installed. So now today is window day, windshield and back glass installation. We weighed the car yesterday, not a pretty sight. Big cars want to press on the ground real hard.

More parts arrived yesterday, thanks MPR, Jegs, Summit, Amazon, and FAST.

Back to work

Larry, looks like you guys are doing a great job putting this thing together. I am sure the frustration level has been very high, at times.

When that first full and fast pass occur, all the time spent will be worth it. Good luck. Can't wait to see the results of your labor.
