Joe finished the hump accomodating the new shift linkage needed by the 4-speed. We'll brush in some rust killing paint before we're done. I promise! We also got the radiator back with new inlets and outlets for the new cooling system. Joe traced out some grill covers then he and Kirk cut them out of aluminum. We'll need those if we decide to run in the altered class.
Mark spent some time working on the grill surrounds with some JB Weld and a grinder.
Finally it was time to push the car outside and try to start it. Everyone stood around as Ed cranked and cranked and cranked. A quick run to the nearest gas station netted us a gallon and a half of 110 Octane racing fuel for $4.399 per gallon. From left to right that's Greg, Mark, Ed (in the car), Mike Speidel, Dave Nichol, and Kirk.
