Well its time to make my way back to page 1 even though I dont think its near as nice as wizbangs rally FB or some of the others! This weekend Virginia has seemed to finally catch a break with the weather no snow or below 30s!! Billy is headed over saturday and at that point should have Holley rebuilt installed, Radiator installed rest of coolant system done, fuel system done! put some fresh gas and oil in and fire it up! Open header which should make for some fun!

Its not a new GSLSE, lol.. it's one of MC's other parts cars.. you know, like the kind you find when walking through the woods! Probably wont start taking anything off that for some time now as we need to finish the RX3 first. LeMons will be next year at the earliest.

We'll get your exhaust done up the 'ole fashion way. If we remember, I can steal the muffler section off the car on Saturday and use it as a template for the new one...

That carb ready??

What no update? My update on this project is that I am now sunburned pretty good and have earned the redneck trophy of the season!

We did manage to get the starter installed, radiator mocked up, some of the wiring routed, carb installed and a quick compression test. The compression test started really well, but then the starter began giving out. There is an extra one there to swap out next time.

Next step is to get the ignition wired up, prime the carb and make some fire!

Photo of the project right now (minus the radiator and battery)...



Also, started on the y-pipe for the exhaust. The car is utilizing a road race style header so a simple y-pipe to collect right before the catalytic converter needs to be made. The rest of the exhaust will be a custom 2.5" catback... should sound pretty good when it's done.

Hope I'm not stepping on your toes Chris by posting this stuff up...

Thought I'd toss these up to share... almost done with the custom y-pipe and mid section exhaust for this car.

Was planning to mock it up before final welding, but since it'll have to be cut to length for the resonator, it doesn't really matter. I mocked it based on other exhaust parts laying around so it should be ok. One320fc... we working on the car this upcoming weekend still? Provided the baby hasn't come yet..
