Clearly, we have some significant chassis and body work to get fixed, but at 52 yo, a little "lift, nip and tuck" is acceptable for Doug's lady to restore her beauty.

4 August 2023

Valve Testing, Fuel System Tracing, Fuel Pump, and Chassis Review - Confirmed she can't pass tech as is on her chassis or fuel leaks. Fuel system is a frustration as her bowls won't hold fuel in between firing her up. Also discovered front end alignment issues and opportunity to upsize the drive shaft to carry the increased power that the new fuel system is going to add. So far, transmission is doing well now with gaskets resealed. So, while we wait for parts and time, we fire her up every couple days and she gets a little cruise around the hood. With all that, VERY MUCH looking forward to swing out cage bars along the doors for all the climbing in and over.
Next Up: Carb Overhaul, New Fuel System 
Still to Come: Chassis Work, Alignment, New Rear Wheels, Paint, Poss Transmission Work

Taking a few little test drives to open her up and blow out some cobwebs. She's soon to go up on jacks for a LOT of work. It's been pretty interesting and exciting to see many of her older fans come out and over to check her out.

New fuel pump is ready go in with all new Dash 10 and new larger fuel cell which is going to take some modification and fabrication for sure.

Finding and dealing with things that make you say WTH!? New regulator mounting and running new fuel line from the rail to the cell definitely cleaner than before.

Cleaning up the old rear wheels -- stripping the black paint and polishing only to find the rear wheels are EXACTLY the replacement being considered. They're ready for new M/T's to come in and be mounted.
