Got a few more things done last night.  Started work on the fuel system and put on a shiny new methanol carb!

Lots of work to talk about.  Finishing up the fuel system and also threw in an MSD ignition.  It's now hooked up to the HEI distributor and I made a set of wires, though they aren't shown.  Also the fuel system has a pressure regulator and goes all the way to the carb with a pressure gauge;




Also threw together a windshield.  Hopefully this will get me through tech.  I sandwiched lexan with the strips of metal.  I couldn't find one solid sheet in the thickness I wanted so it's two pieces as you can see.  Should I be worried?



Thanks,
Sam

    Having worked in the glass business for a while, I know that when you stack two pieces of safety glass you can get some great double images in the sun. On the Salt in the morning you run right into the sun. Make sure that you check it out with various sun angles. Just sayin'.

Doug, he has two pieces side by side, not sandwiched.

You are correct Tman, I also installed the original sun shield about the windshield so hopefully that will knock out any chance of glare.

That "sun shield" ought to be worth at least 10 MPH (minus, that is).

Throw some tint on the windshield, don't run before 9 A.M.  How do the roadster guys do it?
