Haha, I have cried! A couple times. When I found out my engine was bad, when I found out how much it would be to have someone fix it, and once the weekend of November 4th, when I realized that I had put all of the right head valves into the left head. And had to pull them all, and redo them. I was feeling like the project was never going to get finished at that time, but since then things have been going much better. Good thing I'm tenacious. There were a lot of little things that were taking a long time before which I didn't absolutely need to do as part of the fixing-it process, such as porting and polishing everything, super cleaning everything, retaping my wire harness, de-rusting/scraping/rust treating/sanding/painting a lot of parts, etc. The biggest time vampire was just waiting for the freaking parts to get to me after I ordered them. I didn't order everything at once, since I didn't really know what all I would need at the beginning of the whole thing. So I'd fix as much as I could, run into some problem, order another part, wait some more.. repeat process.Wow! Look at the size of that ...pole-barn! There's no way I could do that in my 2-car garage. After looking at the complexity of it all, I really feel for you. I think I would cry if I had to go thru that. At this rate, you'll be done in time for Christmas! Thanks for the pics!
So, will I see you at Sno*Drift?
I could have skipped some of the time consuming things like wire wheeling the corrosion of my intake manifold and other various parts, but I figured if I'm doing this, I should just do the best job that I can do, you know? My pics are a bit behind. My intake manifold is all attached and uppipe as well, and a bunch of hoses and tubes. I think the turbo will go on tonight. It's 31 degrees out, I'm really looking forward to my evening.
My goal is still to have it all together by this Monday. Wish me luck so things continue going well
First time I've heard of sno drift, that looks fun.
