    Pulled D2 out of the neighbors garage with my riding lawn mower. Plan on fixing all the rust with my newly acquired free time.

    Keeping the car sunfire yellow but I think I'm going to ditch the GT stripe. Don't think it looks as nice with the yellow as it does my red one.

          After all the winter work today was the true test run. Wife says I am getting a bad attitude so I road tripped about 120 miles over all kinds of roads checking the steering, suspension and tune. The car exceeded my expectations as it now drives and handles super and gets 15 MPG with 3:71 gears.

          I saw J-par's list of shows and I would like to go to a couple if we ever get out of quarantine safely. The new exhaust just loud enough to be obnoxious yet sound really cool. OK at hiway speed. (note to self, next time build a motor with some damn torque!)

                Still more carb tuning on the back roads. Discovered that the .034" holes I drilled in my adjustable (set screw) idle fuel restrictions were actually .036. That's 11% bigger, no wonder it was rich off-idle. Fixed that. Now to "un-screw" the secondary which has the same mistake.
                T-storms just now and 80% chance tomorrow, so may not be going anywhere for a day or two.

                        I pulled the secondary metering block to make some IFR changes... also put a smaller accelerator pump cam on (the brown one is way too much).
                        Then I dropped the :mad:cam down the exhaust crossover area of the head. Took a half hour to fish it out and I finally got it with forceps looking in an inspection mirror! Lesson learned.

                            Working on a 90 W-150 heap with a 318/A518 and 3.55 converting to carb and old school electronic ignition. Finished up fabricating the tbi throttle/kickdown bracket, throttle shaft lever grafting onto an Edelbrock AFB, bypassing the disabled computer and reconnection of the fuel pump, A/C and trans O/D functions retaining the factory switches on the dash.

                                        Yet more carb tuning. Still too rich with the full transfer slots in play before the mains come in.
                                        Really big cam + old Holley + QF baseplate + street driving = :wtf: :BangHead:

                                            Washed and waxed my Cars. My truck was sorta grey with a tint of red mud and yellow pollen. It’s white again. First break in the rain and crazy storms. Course that one to hit Jonesboro had me worried.

                                              41 degrees, windy and moist. Nothing getting done here for a couple days. Can't wait for a little warmer weather and sunshine.

                                                Today, just me and my car doing some more social distancing.
                                                I use my debit card for gas so I don't have to go in, and hand sanitize when I get back in the car before I touch anything else.

                                                I don't stop and get out anywhere unless there is no one around.
                                                Probably take my favorite local drive.

                                                  I sent the Thermoquad 6518 from my '77 B200 Sportsman Royal SE camper to Steven Stills of Edmond, OK for one of his fantastic rebuilds, so while the van is laid up I'm replacing the turn signal switch and the driver's door latch striker post. I got the new striker post from FABO member Famous Bob (thanks, Bob!).

                                                  Also, the 6-1/2" speakers in the front doors kept falling out and sounded terrible, so I removed the Sportsman's full interior door panels and noticed that the stereo shop that originally installed the speakers had left their tops completely unsupported, so I drilled and tapped to 10-32 the holes that were used for an interior door panel on the Tradesman van, and cut sheet metal panels to fit. I also built 3/16"-thick mild steel mounting reinforcement rings and will be installing new speakers as soon as they arrive.

                                                    I had no idea Arizona was so beautiful. Always wanted to go out west, maybe I'll have to make a plan.
