I drove up to Metal-Morphous today and picked her up. She started right up. Had a greatride home….I have to get some “Real” pics of the car when I have time and a nice day. In the meanwhile I plan to get the final gremlins out..and also put in the Alex’s Roadster’s wheel well liners. I have to put some trim on the carpeting near the doors. I need to check that all of the body parts they put on were put on correctly (I found a few loose things – parking light, license plate holder, side mirror and still looking for more). I need to make some faux-screw heads to cover up some holes in the dash where there used to be screws holding the dash to the hoop…I also need to do an oil change/analysis and tune the engine (runs rough when cold). I also plan to bring the car to Mark Dougherty in PA to get the suspension perfect.
I have to clean the interior and engine compartments a bit…lots of dust from the paint process….it was my choice to finish the car and have it painted as a finished car…most do the interior after for just this reason. But I decided to drive the car for a bit to shake it out a bit before I had it painted. I wanted to minimize the chance that I might have to pull the body off ever again to fix something.
So this is it….the journey is basically complete. Just fun from now on. I plan to get some real pictures and ill post them when I get them. Maybe every year I’ll do a total maintenance look-over and possibly pick a project now and then to improve/upgrade/restore things as they get used. Maybe Hawk XP pads are my next project 🙂
