    if it weren't for bad luck

    this isn't the problem

    this is

    if you're missing the issue - the mount tab is broken off.... wasn't in the box.

    I know, I know, I should let loose the dogs of war.... this is more a letting loose the yellow labrador of love.
    cold lap
    the faster laps - well, I need to learn to turn the camera off after each run so the battery was done after this run
    best was 52s in a really built LS Miata, 55 in my class mine was 61
    most importantly nothing broke

    wow, the impossibility of getting a rebuilt steering rack for a C5 or C6 is pretty remarkable.... I bought another used one, figure I'll get my current one rebuilt (maybe?)

    autox weekend.... the motorhome, it's beyond slow
    and I need to fix the trailer brakes - developed a short on the trip


    looking for a short - and need to replace one tire...


    I also took the opportunity to repack wheel bearings - this trailer is going to get a work out over the next few weeks...

    I thought mistake, nope... works out to $2 a tube so I'm happy
    time to refasten the sidepipes

    even the trim is in place

    It was a busy night for Trio, had to hide Luigi's ball

    yet they are peas in a pod... there is a 6 or so month age difference

    back to C3 content
    I can move the exhaust pipe towards the car. Granted, it's no longer parallel, but I have a thought

    that it will help deflect noise

    I'm close, within 1 db...

    beta version etch primer

    installed

    rivet the rubber spoiler on


    install edges

    it's also bolted to the frame through the bottom of the radiator cladding
    also, rather then hard attach to the fenders, the rubber stoppers will keep the metal in place but also allow it to give if I get too low....

    fun fun

    spoiler - wider and remove the lift from the nose (no catfish nose lift)


    what's left? reverse lights and figure out why the lighter plug isn't working... then it goes in the garage to await its first racing of the season (mid-May)... and that schedule is Spokane May 15ish, and PIR May 27....
    Also, need to finish up some things on the motorhome but it's close...

    oh yeah, and buy 2 houses, a commercial property then move 300 miles --------> way
    oh and get a puppy this weekend.
    and commute to Idaho for Buick parts.
