Chocolate covered circus peanut

Well somehow I want to drive it to Canby.....  Maybe.  Either way I'm going for it.  I haven't worked on it as much as I'd like to.  Here are some updates of rust repair and IC/Rad fitment.

Added some weld nuts for the IC

Got everything mocked up.  Still adjusting in this picture though.   Think I might pain the IC black on this build.  Hide it a little better.

Had to move the rad inlet, hopefully it will work there.  I check on Franks car but who knows.

Making the pipe a size I can get couplers for...  Stupid pipe and tube being differently measured.

Ground clamp broke mid project, this seemed to work rather well actually :)

How close is that to original paint.

 

 

I really like that color.

 

 

The coupe was originally the super pale yellow, almost a white.  Basically the color the engine bay was minus the rust and grease.  The color I sprayed the engine bay is butter scotch.  It was the color of my first 510 and one of my favorites.  So I decided to go with it.   Lets see if I can dig up a photo of my first 510.

Need a fuel tank for the endure car.  I figured I could pull the coupe tank and use it.  Since I had a tank Rich modified for it waiting to go in.  Well turn out the coupe tank is junk.  But it was good getting it ready for the new tank anyway.  I gotta get this car going.  Sick of seeing it sit in my garage anyways.  So I pulled the tank, wire brushed all the rust and banged the tire well somewhat straight.  Some idiot picked it up with a forklift!!!  Dented the spare tire well really bad.  Not sure how visible it will be in the photo.
