Nothing New to Report

As anyone who has been following this blog knows, the car still isn’t completely done. I drove it all year, and put nearly 1000 miles on it. I’ve garaged it for the winter, which doesn’t mean I definitely won’t drive it again until spring, but won’t very often. It was a great year of drives, and the car ran beautifully (other than the nagging oil leaks).

I have a few winter projects I may, or may not, get to this year. After three and a half years of working on the car there are a lot of other projects that need some attention other than car projects. That said,  I need to fabricate the carpet set for the car, and need to deal with either recovering or replacing the seats (and getting the seat heaters in). The car needs a careful alignment again. I’ve debated replacing the manual steering with power steering. The center console’s panel needs to be remade — it worked well for the last year or so, but I can do a better job on it. I have some trim pieces that need to be fabricated, such as the door for the rear panel glove box. I need to get a few parts I missed the first time powdercoated. And I need to find a place to paint the car, probably in the spring. I’ve also debated doing a tilt-nose modification on the body (bonding the hood to the body and cutting the nose so it tilts up in its entirety).

If I get to any of the projects, I’ll be documenting them on here, of course. If not, expect the site to be quiet until the spring.
