Relief?  Well, for the throttle bodies, perhaps -

This is what I had before - the rear TB catching on the footwell -

The insert is an outside corner of an old Rauland school PA rack, which had a nice curve on it.  I'll tack it in tomorrow, and see how it looks.

And the car is green!!  cheers Hell, your whole project is recycling nirvana! cheers

It's kinda crazy, the number of recycled pro-audio pieces I've been able to integrate into this build.  In the past, I've used a microphone jack for the crank trigger (a shielded 3 pin connector - better shielding than the usual auto-spec pieces it replaced), and a 4-pin XLR jack and plug for the tachometer - which hangs where the rear-view mirror was and plugs straight into the dash.

A good friend of mine, Mike Hoffmann - produced the Verve Pipe, worked with the Violent Femmes, opened for the Go Go's and The Clash - probably one of the most accomplished musicians I personally know - put it this way . . .

The shortened driveshaft got picked up today, and I started a bit of welding on the relief insert.  Not going well, so I walked away from it for a bit of a break.  Tough to get at it, what with my frame between the frame rails, and very peculiar angles to come at it. 

There will be a bit of grinding to smooth it out, and a few additional stitches, but while I doubt I'll ever develop this skill to the point of "professional" level, I'm confident I can get this to the point of "acceptable".

Gaskets are now south of the "Cheddar Curtain".  I'm FINALLY off work next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday - three days of PTO that were SUPPOSED to have been distributed out over the last month.  Three days of uninterrupted focus on my part is much needed.

Really can't back out now - we're listed in the pre-entry.

333 entries, 6 in GT, one in BGT - 2% of the participants - and the SCTA is looking to further subdivide the category?  undecided
