Ohhh a qa1 shock absorber and driveshaft.  Sweet!

 

 

I worked on fender flares for a bit.  I'm gonna be upset if the wheels end up further out than I thought....

@ironworks what's the points on those pistons? Looks like some heavily reworked stockers :P

We were going to have to take points for using ITR pistons so just figured might as well go all out! We haven't really fully decided yet but if our points get to high we may use this engine for lemons and just use a stock b20 for Champ. I guess only time will tell what happens!

If everything goes to plan, which it hasn't yet this week.  I will be getting the car back from muffler shop, then I have to completely sand the car and take it tonight to the paint shop so it can get sprayed tomorrow.  Then I have next week to decal it and finish odds and ends before I go to start a new job living 3 hours away from the car which I need to feel good about for Road Atlanta.

Shark not back in Shop from Sebring yet, today’s race car action was laying eyeballs on E 30 carcass noting front sump oil pan and generous engine bay possibly enough room for a Japanese engine

Working on actually getting some headlights into the Cobra, so many things to fix in time for Road Atlanta.

Are you going to keep the curb finders on the e30😎

 

I'm begging, can someone please talk me out of it? Why is this a bad idea?

Because maybe you like a challenge...you have enough room in the trailer for two cars?

Correct. When I read your post saying you would have to take points for ITR? pistons, I got curious since it's an item we've discussed in TAC conversations.

I thought maybe you checked with tech and got a point value for them.

I talked to a guy a while back and if i remember correct he said he took points (i think 10) for ITR pistons. I was going off what they had said but checking the sheet I can't find pistons on it at all.

I got all my old rusted and frozen rear brake bolts out yesterday. Just waiting now for the new lines and calipers. Then I put the new injectors in our D16 motor. Finished up the day taking the fuse box out. I'll start wiring up the switch panel using the factory harness.

Fire extinguisher went off in the trailer on the ride home from Barber. I guess the pin slipped out/wasn’t put back it. 

 

Finally got the car car up on jackstands after what seemed like three straight weeks of rain. 

 

Doing some splitter repairs and a and a new steering rack in preparation for RA. Need to get some hands on a level to see if we pass the fender rule.
