Thanks! I am doing my best to keep it running so I don't get frustrated with it sitting for too long. That's happened to me before and I'm taking great pains to avoid it again. And yes, Arizona can quickly get too hot to do much at all during the warm months. My wife and I will take the car out on Saturday morning to grab groceries and get breakfast around 7:30-8. Right now it's still around the mid 80s during that time. It won't be long before we're already in the upper 90s during that time, and with no A/C in the car yet....the missus isn't having it!Love how you are building, breaking up your restoration/modifications into small chunks and keeping it driving. So many go for the “full rebuild” and only end up dumping their project in a field to rust away.
Sounds like Arizona is a lot like a big part of Australia, way too hot to do anything outside in summer.
Been a short while but I've been stockpiling parts. Got a 22 gallon stainless fuel tank and will be mounting a 5th gen camaro fuel pump in it. Bought some parts from VaporWorx that will allow it to be a single-line feed into the holley efi setup I'm running.
Also decided on doing a T56 swap, so bought the bellhousing for that.
Picked up JBA ceramic coated stainless long tube headers and my ignition pieces as well.
Went to SEMA and GoodGuys most recently. Actually picked up my shock tower brace from Mike and Brianne Maier while i was at the GG show. Brianne was kind enough to toss one in her truck to save me a few bucks on shipping.
Enjoy the pics!
Certainly.Can you elaborate on what exactly you are doing for your fuel setup/delivery?
I assume you're going with some sort of PWM setup?
It sounds like you are doing something similar to what I want to do (when I get to the point where I am putting my car back together) and the VaporWorx guys were recommended to me by someone else.
Are you going to have to run the fuel lines in the trunk with what you are doing?
Ideally I want a 22 gallon stainless tank with (baffled or with Holly Hydramat), PWM pump (to not heat up the fuel unnecessarily), and avoid running the lines in the trunk...
Any info would be appreciated.
Nice backhand...I have the Dakota Digital VHX gauges in my '68. I got them before the RTX were developed. I just finished looking at the RTX gauges on the Dakota Digital website and I have to say I still like the looks of the VHX gauges better. I'm sure you'll be happy with the gauges after you have them installed.
