    Nice turnbuckle!

    Waiting to see the dash, I'm still contemplating a Megasquirt and different dash for the Midi.

    Shhhhhhh... I don't wanna think about that.

    Fuel level sensor installed:





    Fuel filler neck on order from Summit Racing.

    Have now moved forward to the radiator. Time to get the fans on the back of it and the shrouds in place around it.

    Exhaust tooobing didn't show up yet (tracking says it's still out for delivery) so I'll keep busy up front until it does and then I'll knock out the exhaust system.

    Got my toooooobing from SPD yesterday and started on the exhaust.



    The collector is a work of art.








    So I started cutting, bending, hacking, welding and have come up with this so far:






    Not sure this is the layout yet. Trying to keep all three header tooooobs the same length is a bitch. I may have to cut the collector off of the 2" tube and rotate it so I can rearrange the location of the headers. I forgot how much fun this crap is - and the last two I did were two cylinder setups in the Briggs cars. This has one more that I have to deal with.

    Also, don't know if you guys heard but a week after my appendectomy I get a phone call from the doctor - "You need to come in and get another CAT scan. We've lost your appendix and we need to make sure it's not still in you." - doc was kinda freaked out... I knew it wasn't in me. A week afterwards, if they'd left it in, and I'd have been one messed up camper.

    Anyhow from the very start of going to the hospital I was telling everyone that was involved that I wanted my appendix in a little glass bottle with a black cap (like we had in biology) so I could set it on my desk next to my screws from my leg. Hey, it's MY appendix, I want it. They all looked at me like I had three eyes and didn't believe me. - I was serious, I wanted it. It's mine, just because you take it out doesn't mean it can't go home with me.

    So the doc starts the conversation about having to come back in with "So, you know how you wanted it in a little bottle? I wish we'd done that." I go in, get my CAT scan and no, it's not there. I start telling them that it's sitting on a beach somewhere, drink in what ever an appendix uses to hold something, hat and glasses on, chilling. It either had a mid-life crisis, was tired of me beating it around or maybe it just wanted some fresh air. Regardless, it was gone.

    It showed up yesterday:






    Made me laugh!

    Looks like your errant organ was really a baby Beaker.

    I'm going to have to check out the exhaust company you used for my project. Those tubes and collectors look very nice.
