I had a good afternoon, working on the secondary chute systems.

 Andy came over tonight and we got the new bottom panel in.

 I will wire the gauges tomorrow and put in the belts, and order more springs for the  Dutzs fasteners. We are down to cutting and fitting the last four panels---above and below the headers and then double checking all the fittings, finish mounting the intake scoop  and -------------then the GAS!!!!!!!!

I better get busy and make sure I have a date with "Ms Liberty". Andy and I cut the new panels for the bottom and the 4 panels that the above and below the headers.  I will try to start cutting out for the headers and welding some tabs  today. Instruments and seat belts up front.

OK, what is Ms Liberty?

Well all in all a good morning--- the electrical system is now partially hot:

 Cut off works, master works, Ign.  hot-- starter button works,   RAD in Box  cooling pump, works and no leaks, Transfer pump box water back to rear tank works--- two small leaks now stopped.  That just leaves the tach and water and oil press to wire and make up the connectors so that we can take canopy and strg. wheel off..woops forgot to mention the 22 gallons of distilled H2O

Sparky now you sound like Doug Odom! "If you can't race it or take it to bed - it ain't worth having."  :-D

I run distilled water in everything --so the heat will not cause mineral deposits anywhere --they inhibit heat transfer

No mineral deposits to deal with, but I though distilled water caused more corrosion, due to the water trying to 'balance' itself, and leaching minerals from all of the metal?


I think deionized water is worse, if I remember correctly.
