So it's been a while, and the car has been a little neglected. I pulled it into the garage and made a few changes. Mostly to make it slightly less uncomfortable to drive, and more in line with my advancing years...

Margard Windshield, LED headlights, mirrors, Procar Evolution seat, 195/45R16 ft, 235/40R17 rr, 125# ft springs (from 200!), 150# rr springs, Walbro fuel pump.

It looks like I joined LocostUSA.com after you finished your car. I'm glad to see you've been enjoying it for some time. I looked back through your build log. That Pacific Northwest Tour looks like it was a super event. Hopefully there will be an event like that when mine is finished.

Cheers,

I hope so, too. It's been a while.

Here is one of my many prototypes. In the end I chose the more conventional clear version.
