 :-D

Finished my frame today  got the final measurements took my .062 4'X 6" damaged alum over to SW Fabrication where Marty works and got it sheared.. Andy and I installed the 72 pop rivets and walaha  we have tail feathers--- I have to drill 2 more holes and weld one more mounting bracket and we should be good to go.

Sparky, I've still got those t-shirts for you.  The chances are very good that I won't be heading out to Bville again this year -- so I'll mail the shirts in a few days.  Sorry we didn't get together -- I wanted to see your car up close and personal.  Best wishes for some good runs and safe high speeds. :-D :-D

YES YES YES---I so look forward to Ms LIBERTY getting to run hard this year!!

I dropped of a used 4.8 LS at Ron's Fuel Injection in Tucson that I bought off Craig's List in Texas while there attending my oldest grand-daughter's wedding. 

They are going to use it to build their prototype mounting brackets for the LS series engines for their mechanical fuel pumps.  My car is set up for the fuel pump on the passenger side and the dry sump on the drivers side just opposite of most LS drives.  I hope to plump an LS for down the road this winter.
