Progress Report

Having some difficulty getting the carbs happy. We'll get there. It's been stalling at traffic lights. A few times but that shouldn't be.

We mounted the Cibie Super Oscars, affixed the rubber hood latches, made prototypes for the center stack and the center driving light mount. We've looked at a number of bracket solutions for the center light and like the factory's recent rally build solution the best. So we'll try and get as close to that as possible...or better.

The Konis on medium are perfect. And we like the Michelin Defenders too. Waiting for my $80.00 rebate card from TireRack.com!

We bought a Sunpro Retro Tach and hope to be able to mount that off center on the steering column. Probably with a custom bracket of some sort. I don't like the idea of drilling a hole in the perfect dash pad!
