    Or depressing when I find myself a quart low on ambition.

    I really like the way this is coming together - again - your work ethic and seemingly endless supply of energy and motivation are truly inspirational. This is the most unique "mako shark" vettes on the planet

    I wasn't going to - but these are quite a bit further from the body then the Hooker ones on PF1... that said, using pipe clamps to hold it in place should make it a lot nicer

    Ford guys, never understand them.... first they go on about honey (mmmm and biscuits), then they go full retard. No one goes full retard, well, except Ford guys... there it's pretty much assumed.

    lights.... work



    now to wire the linear actuators... there's a possibility that I'll either be buying more actuators or that they "only adjusted at the factory" means "only adjusted at the factory unless it goes to Aaron"
    in other news, starting to get the interior sealed up as well

    time to show the result.

    the metal band is over the DEI wrap

    right next to it is 215 degrees

    I had to adjust the front band to be sure it wasn't touching the bit that's 379 degrees - because heat does travel... that said, I may still paint "HOT" as a stencil ... stylistically I won't like it but I don't want to see someone get a nasty burn
    to be clear, the point of the wrap is to prevent me or a passenger from getting burned getting in or out


    then I worked on the power window motor... it's toast

    note the step where the brushes ride...


    hopefully the new motors will arrive soon - been patient because Zip was a lot cheaper... but time's up.

    mirror, minus light


    how to wire the doors

    use picks to press in on the outside of the brass ferule

    pull out to get loose of housing

    note the silver mark - I mark the wire and its attendant hole so they don't get mixed up going back together

    remove the housing

    remove from the wire guard

    there is a hole that lines up with the hole in the door... feed into the door jamb

    feed the wire through the guard then into the door

    snap the wires back into the housing

    and then install the dust block



    then onto wrapping sidepipes...


    the stainless is growing on me


    I used DEI wrap, then used two exhaust pipe clamps to hold either end.... that ain't goin' nowhere lol
