Chris - thanks for the encouragement. I appreciate it. I guess the invite to come via biplane to NNL East you're taking a raincheck on, right?
John - I wish it was about to be wrapped up. More fuel lines, the box Ted mentioned, hoses from the valve covers to the frame, finish the wheelie bars, underbody supports, more decals, etc. Thanks for checking in and I'm waiting for your next project. We just had a bad electrical storm with hail and the computer decided to reboot itself.
Ted- I was looking at my "intricate fuel pumps" and thought it looked like something Dr. Suess had dreamed up, but it roughly replicates what is on the Sentry Olds FC. I am also in the process of redoing the tinwork that goes over the blower.

Thanks Mr. Laski and Mr. Davis. I appreciate it. I hope to get more done next week. I'm working both days this weekend. Like other employers, mine has cut personnel and distributed the workload around to the rest of us. Just got an order from Charlie at Pro Tech and that's always encouragement to do more. Looking forward to seeing more from both of you.

dave, looking really good. the fuel pumps look spot on. as far as the black box in your picture goes. it looks ike the fuel control system is there what's missing is the clutch system. i went back a little ways , if no one has answered your question on the "box" on the egt sensors. no, it doesn't attach to anything. it just hangs there.
keep up the EXCELLENT work.

Thanks Ron, I appreciate it. This has been a real learning experience.
Thanks Dave. I always appreciate your input. You know your way around these cars much better than I do. Can't wait to see more of your salt flats car.

Ted- I found the other photo of the black box showing the two gauges on the side. Also the computer box he said sat behind him between the frame rails.
