Got some more time in on the car this weekend.

Position sensitive shocks, new limiting straps, oil cooler/filter mount, fuel tank and parcel tray all installed. Goal is to have it ready for testing labor day weekend.

Got a little more work done today.

Wired in a new race radio to work with the intercom system. New headsets for the intercom arrived this week.

Also got a chance to install the exhaust system. Went back to the racing exhaust, but I might change it out depending on how it effects using the intercom/headsets/radio.

Something quieter might be a nice change of pace.

looks like a vertex 3200... running VHF if you want to talk to the racers. I have the programmer for it.

Just a vertex standard from Rugged Radios. I had them preset all the frequencies before they shipped it out.

I have the same style exhaust on my car and hearing the headsets is not a problem. All the windows are currently out in my car too

Today was the day.

Last race was in Dec of 2008 and today I fired up the old monster.

Frankenstein lives . . .

Had a few wiring issues, but it fired up and runs. Seats are in and everything is together.

Next weekend I will take it out and see how it does. Then add some door panels, mirrors and put the rear cage and skid plates back on and it will be ready to prerun the Point 2 Point race in Sept.

So the car came with these lame galvanized steel door panels. I guess the previous owner just made them to have them.

I was thinking of of buying the aluminum racing panels, but thought I would give the grinder a shot and see what I could do with them.

A little grinding and some clear coat makes a world of difference.

Dash/interior complete. Still need to do one more switch when I put on the street legal headlights.





Painted the roof rack and got that installed. The rear shock resevoirs mount to the rack so it is a must to have it on the car.







Looks a little naked without lights. Going with the old school Hellas. I have three HID lights, but gonna go with these for now.



Two FLOODS and one SPOT.



Old school bumper jack mounts at the top of the rack, just above the spare tire.



Some AUTOFAB hood grommets finish off the hood prior to final fitting and mounting.



Put on the rear cage and skidplates. Still needs a little work out back, but that will happen next weekend.



Drove a little yesterday. I can now get it out of the garage and clean up a little. Lots of stuff all over the place.
