The progress has come to a screeching halt! (mostly)
I have been limited to the work I can do in the shop.
(which is basically my front porch)
See, I bought a car port that is 12'X25' and 10' high.
However, after assembling it, the wind had other ideas.
This area isn't known for powerful winds but,
the very night I finished assembling the entire car port,
the wind got so heavy, it lifted the car port off of the ground and,
threw it over the power lines in front of the house.
It has eight 6 foot legs that the pictured roof mounts on top of.
At each of the four corners, I had a 40lb. weight attached.
The entire port weighed around 260lbs and,
the wind picked it up off the ground and threw it like a rag doll!
Here's the roof:
I have since used the side tarps as covers for the car and,
attached them to the GLHS with the car port's bungee cords.
Didn't like it at all but, had to get it somewhat protected.
Surely, I'll have some updates here and there but,
until Spring they'll be mostly inside work.
I bought the SMEC and harness for it and,
- I'll be doing the 87 LM/PM to SMEC wiring inside.
- I have the dash panel out and, in the shop. So, I can work on it.
- I also have the NON-A/C box to modify for vents to operate.
- The fuel sender that I did a TON of work to is no longer an option;
I have to modify it.
Recently I was bored and, knew there was SOMETHING I could do;
So, I got to modifying the GLHS accelerator pedal and combining it with the ULTRA-COOL(IMHO) SRT-4 pedal.
Here's the result of that:
Got the SRT-4 pedal cover for $8 at neons.org and, modified the GLHS pedal to accept it.
Not all that difficult. The hardest part was "thinning down" the GLHS pedal.
Narrowing it was a snap but, thinning it down was kind of tricky.
The screws in the side are to ensure it doesn't come off when MASHED TOO THE BOARDS!
Thanks for checking it out.
Have a great day!
