I jacked it up and put it on jack stans. I guess it's now ready for a long sleep as we are looking at a winter storm moving in from Montana this week.   :cooldancing:

Bummer 'bout that weather movin' in.  I plan to put on the Racepump, regulator, filter, and 1/2 lines if they show up this week.  Gotta get it running before it gets cold.  Check out the YouTube links in my sig! You'll want the sound on. :bananasmi

plugs looks to lean of a condition and your heat range is off.... Tech from a mopar article...

To read the plug and know if you have the right heat range, look at the difference in color of the strap. If the color change is too close to the strap's end (above the center electrode), the heat range is too cold. This means the heat is being absorbed too quickly into the base ring and is not able to burn off carbon deposits effectively. If the color of the strap changes too close to where it is attached to the base ring (the last thread ring), that means the plug's heat range is too hot. This means heat is not being transferred from the strap to the base ring quickly enough. A proper heat range will be shown by the different coloration actually occurring at half the distance of the ground strap.

So based on the above, the heat range of these plugs is too hot?  Could you explain further why you see lean mixture on these?  I see the light brown of normal.

Good info!  Thanks!

Well I took mine out for probably the last time yesterday.  It hasnt snowed any really, so when I have time, I might go again.  I dont mind the cold, just snow.   :eek4:

I restored the A/C heater box for my 'cuda  this weekend. Removed the A/C evaporator as I don't have a need for it.

   With the weather changing I was forced to get some primer put on my car. I spent the last couple of weekends getting the final prep done and then got a couple of coats of epoxy primmer folowed by a couple of coats of high build. Now let the fun begin!

 Is that fun you spoke of the block sanding variety? Looks good there. :thumbsup:

 We had about 1/4" of rain so the dust is settled on the dirt road. Probably back to normal by the weekend though. I may just take her out anyways it been a few weeks now. Got a bathroom remodel going on and with two girls and only one bathroom it's a top priority to get er done.

Jackie, what happened to the door?

I am finally getting motivated after the season is over of all times....  :bricks1: I put the TTI's on yesterday, drove it a mile with open headers to the guy doing my exhaust.  :bananasmi

 :roflsmiley: I couldnt hear anything else. I could actually feel my ear drums palsing like i was @ a concert. Its amazing what vibrates when there is no exhaust. The console sounded like one of those ghetto cars with the loud Base....  :lol2:

I had to lay into it a little  :burnout:
