And a fun jump to have I’m sure! Clean start! As I get older I have come to like something with a good jump to it. It can be a reminder that there more exciting things to do than walking and talking with a mask on. I’m dreaming of teaming up on a project with a friend.I fired it last night for about two seconds to make sure I hooked everything up correctly. It's a good one! I only have down pipes on it and it fired so quickly that it made me jump. I'll have the fuel pump mounted tonight and will post photos.
Yes, that was a fire in the making. I got all the wires repaired and pulled the two fuses on the burnt wires and so far they're staying cool. Trying to get the motor running now so I'll tackle the wiring later.I think when the wires are clumped together in the loom, the surrounding wires tend to act as a heatsink for the overheated ones, the exposed ends overheat faster and melt their insulation just a little bit sooner - either way someone caught that just in time!
I've done some body work over the years but not enough to be efficient. I'm patient with it because I know I'm not good at it. My biggest problem is, I buy cars all day every day and my eye is trained to find flaws, so I can't walk up to any car without seeing every ding, paint mismatch, incorrect gap, you name it. I can spot bad body work from 50 feet away. It sucks. LOLDon’t be too hard on your self. Takes a lot of trial and rerror. You’re getting it done!
