Cleaned up general wiring and area (still need to vacuum
) - of course, we still need to complete "permanent" tied downs, routing, etc. We still have passenger seat to put in, bolt down relay panel to trans tunnel (but did add 1 inch of foam material to act as vibration dampener), etc.
Everything working and checks (obsessive with checking as we progress lol ) ... woot
... except ... starter solenoid went kaput
Should have one here Wednesday. Actually glad it went now - was like 18 years old .. so just ordered new starter unit. Not much room around the torsion bar (had to take solenoid off starter itself to wiggle out) .. new starter is a bit smaller, but will probably have to reverse what we did getting old one out. PIA for starter .. but not that bad.
Added LED light bar above rear view mirror - pic below. Kept stock lights in place and working (rear sail panel? ... is that what you call it back there ...
). We may replace them with orange LED just for fun ... really not that functional back there. Added fuel level gauge (you'll see in pic where speedo would be).
Stopped by shop to order starter ... talked about perhaps final motor/drive train build of changing cam, rear end gearing, and adding Procharger DSC-1 or F1 with set-up for E85. Just looking to go towards final goal of 10 sec ET car without continually undoing or re-doing stuff as we progress. And keep budget in mind.
