  • Re: Plastic Fantastic tew

    photobucket - it's like they want to go out of business. You'd think that with them booting half their photo accounts, things would get better.... yeah, no. One picture is going to have to tide you over



    I spent a good share of time looking for my spare, rear hardlines,,, they've been in the way forever, but now that I could use them they've hidden themselves....

    in other news, I fixed the denali's seat issue, headlight, and now the seat heater doesn't work....it's like it has a code which says "only 90 of 100 electrical items can work at once".... I'm not sure I care - the fix included using a glue gun so I'm not exactly being the poster child for high standard repairs.... but still, and the reason it's on this build is because this is the motor that goes in the next C3 I build.

        why can't I keep both?

        It'll be interesting to see where this ends.

          I could see you trying to decide which one to drive after both are completed....

            The question to determine the answer will be "how many points do I have on my license this week.... what kind of ticket can I get and not lose my license?"

            I can imagine this goes through WRP's mind too ;)

                You're going to pass this off to the uneducated that this is a rare prototype factory racer, aren't you....

                      pulleys arrived


                      brake bleeding time


                      and steering


                      I finally did it, I put a tack on the inside of the u-joint to make it fit. I did not have this trouble with the last car; but good grief. I tacked it, then ground it a bit so it fit snuggly to the input shaft


                      and voila




                      Tomorrow or Thursday I'll finish the last dent I need to put in the headers then button the motor and trans together.... if I get lucky, I'll drop it in on Thursday for permanent

                          pulleys installed


                          final test fit of the headers


                          some clearancing is required





                          time to work on the finish

                          shiney


                          brushed


                          this falls under future proofing - install of a o2 bung




                          I'm going to wrap what is under the hood to keep temps down and get rid of some of the shiney - presuming that arrives tomorrow, Sunday I'll put the beast in

                            Today's plan was to get the motor in for permanent (or as permanent as they tend to be with me)
                            First problem was the Amazon delivery of header wrap didn't happen. No problem, I'll give them a jingle. "we will have it to you today." As of 7:30pm, it is not here - remind me again why I didn't just get a refund and go buy it from O'Reilly's?
                            then there was 'problem' two

                            which isn't a problem it's more a distraction :D snow men were made and destroyed in a callous manner.
                            back to work.... clutch install


                            oh good lord

                            let's look again


                            plugs arrived via Amazon


                            but still no wrap
                            assembled bullet


                            installed - sort of - I still need to lift it back up to get the sidepipes in once I get the damn wrap


                            that is the appropriate hole for the Z bar


                            of course, I can't attach that until I get the wrap
                            hmmm, this looks a bit short on one end


                            fortunately, I have a non-modified support so the fix is pretty simple

                              Looking good, nice progress. Thinking about a C3 project.

                                it's kind of funny, there are 8 guys who are local to me who own C3 Corvettes because of Plastic one.... they really are the up-and-comers of the car world.
