As I mentioned, I couldn’t sleep in Sunday knowing that my motor had to come out. So I woke up early and got right to work. After a few hours on Sunday I had everything drained, removed, disconnected, and ready to go! I made great time and a lot of progress for the day. I was more than happy with what I was able to accomplish.
Then Monday right after work me and my Dad both dove right in. I love the days after work or long Saturdays working my my dad. It’s not only a great way to spend some time but we can come up with some pretty cool shit by bouncing ideas off of each other, and using parts here and parts there. We are both blown away at what we have been able to accomplish so far, and can’t wait to see what we can come up with in the future. We really make a great team working on the car. So we were able to pop the motor out of the car in no time on Monday. Now I have to begin the teardown of my motor to have all the parts ready for the new block, when it arrives. So far things have been rolling along pretty well and I am hoping to keep my momentum rolling! I am really glad I got on it right after it happened and I didn’t let it sit. It’s gives you a good feeling to know there is something out there that can wake up the determined beast in you!
I also got a wild hair up my ass and decided to cut my core support off… I must have had too much coffee this morning. More on that later…
On a lighter note, Pedobro Paul and I both have been accepted to show our cars at WekEast in August! It is a great honor for the both of us and is sure to be a great time! If you have nothing going on the weekend of August 25 come check out both of our cars at the NJ Expo & Convention Center! This will be my first time taking the car to a pre-selected type of car show and I am anxious to see what people think of it. It feels really good to have accomplished my main goal throughout this build, to transcend the boundaries of your typical drift car and build a car that can both be driven hard on the track and still taken seriously at a car show. With that said I have to get back to working on this damn thing so I can have it ready in time! See you all at WekEast on the 25th and the Swing Set Matsuri on the 31st!
