Good day folks,

 Here are a few more pictures from today.
Working on the front suspension today and have that mostly competed, with the exception on the shocks.
I bought these quite a while back, so this is my own fault. Was not smart enough to check the shocks when I received them, who though that you needed to right?
So I was going to install them today and much to my surprise they are not the same...  The part number's was on the packaging...
Look at the last picture and you'll see the difference, the one on the right is the correct one, the other who knows.

Good day folks,

 Here is a small update, with the engine installed and fluids topped off I proceeded to light it off.   
And much to my surprise I had power in the run position and nothing on the start position of the switch. After a bit of winding my a$$ and scratching my watch, I found the problem.
This was a new ignition switch and it was broken on the inside (aftermarket) so I got and old switch from (wingman) and made what I needed. And in the last picture the tach is working!!!

That is a very nice car!  I'll be looking forward to seeing the finished product.  I'm new to the site and I'm already thrilled at what I'm seeing.   2thumbs

With great excitement I have read your updates for a 1/2 dozen years. Your patience is beyond belief and exceeded by your desire for perfection. If Creative Industries had done this level of work they would have never made enough Daytona's to meet the NASCAR requirements and the restoration market would have nothing to sell to us! You sir are to be commended and honored. Thank you for the ride. When you are ready to take it out on the road I would love to come to Kansas to ride along (but behind) to see it in action. I think the Kansas mafia owes you in particular and us all a car show at a weekend in say mid-October for you to debut the car to the national, dare I say, world-wide acclaim. Congratulations for a job above and beyond and thanks for the pictures and progress as you near the end of the journey!

So are you thinking what will be next? A Turbine car clone would be nice  Wink

Bob,
 All I can say is thank you very much for the kind words, and it would be my honor to meet you and do a ride along with you and the Kansas mafia sometime in the future. I still have a long way to go yet. I've been reworking my hood. I don't like the way it turned out from the body shop among some other things.  

As far as the next project goes (Turbine car would be cool!!) is my wife's call

Good day folks,

 Here's another small update,
After getting the ignition switch straighten out and the car running, I noticed that the temp, and fuel gauge wasn't working. It has all new OER gauges, circuit board, and voltage limiter.
So, I made a tester (C-3826) that the service manual calls to test all the gauges while still in the vehicle. It's crud, but hey it works. I found out that all my sending units were bad, and all my gauges are good!!! Was not looking forward to pulling the cluster out. You can see the fuel gauge being tested.
