OMG, You won't believe it!!!

Post by Damn-it Don on Sun Oct 10, 2010 4:04 pm

Yes, it's true- I painted 2 of those gawd-awful yellow fenders primer black!


I also got more Antiques roadshow stuff for the luggage rack-
I swapped a low beam relay for a vintage Cypress Gardens water ski....can you say "Score!" cheers

Driving wonderfully!
I think the shifter needs to be adjusted a little or else my lock out plate is worn. I'm still expecting the pedal hook to break- but it has a fresh adjustment that is holding for now, and I've got a spare pedal set in the trunk too. I'm taking it over to ProFlow soon to have the clutch tube r&r'd, and that will solve the problem for good.

It'll just break (again). The clutch pedal is boxed (so I don't break the pedal arms anymore), and Tim Baker restored the OG hook. That set up has outlasted anything else I've done. I'm gonna put a heavy duty hook on, but the ultimate problem is the mangled tube- from the access plate back it's destroyed! Steve is going to replace the last few feet of it, and I will never have this trouble again! My pedal assembly is very similar to HVW's "bullet proof" article they ran. I'm gonna finish it off with the new hd hook, and make it pretty....one last time.
