Mike---

resort to the words of our fearless leader Alfred E. Neuman or was it Newman

"What me Worry?"

I still  have to build me a non conductive shield of the connector bar so if someone drops something on it will not short out or burn UP!

The subaru never stops it seems.


All my Autometer gauges are mechanical and the capillaries are going to be too short.
The oil pressure gauge is the only one where I see a simple solution.
As far as the others go?, I walked away for now. :evil:

Podunk---those special hinges require Red Neck clip in shoes to function.  

We have not been successful in figuring out how to get a special variance for rear steer from SCTA as the driver  is facing the rear when clipped in.  

Maybe we should consider a cornea transplant to enable the driver to see out his posterior .

When you suit up and think about going 350 in that thing puckering up won't be a problem.

Sparky was out here an hour ago, Glen.  He gave me one of Miss Linda's chocolate chip cookies.  Glad he gave it to me.  Sure wish I could have had two.

But anyway, he's here and probably not too close to a 'puter.

It .....



... pivots up.  An outside latch, that can also be opened from the inside releases the canopy and it hinges up on the hinges in the picture.  A seat belt latch on each side holds the framework that also pivots up that the gauges and steering is attached to,

Sum
------------------------------------------------------------
Guys,

If you look real close you can see drivers side seat belt latch that is attached to the "Leg Jail" that the steering shaft moves up and down with. There is one for each side to hold it down.  When the latches are released and the canopy latch is released the wheels contact a rails that lift the canopy for egress.

Sum thanks for covering for me--

-Francis and I just got back from Mojave Mile --hope to get in a good day working on Ms. Liberty Monday!!

As we went through Needles Ca. it looked like a war zone from what we saw there must be an arsonist  running around.

4 very distinct fires ---water bucket 'copters and fire bombers making passes on very high fires in what must have been creosote bushes--very black very aggressive burning into a brisk wind.

After reading online it must have been salt cedar that was burning so fiercely!

Well Francis and I noodled some more with the canopy but neither one of us was up for messing with fiber glass

Last night I got in 2 good hours on rebuild my straight back non equal length headers.  I cut up the ones off RATICAL and I am able to reuse the plates and use some of the old tubes to extend them outside of the skin of Ms Liberty.

The second picture was taken with the camera sitting on top of the rear axel

Well I finally got back out to the shop today to install a Rube Goldberg ac condensation gutter system--when I replaced the ac unit it had a different drain location than the old one and the condensation was running down the wall in the insulation---I gave it a week to dry out--not much problem during the day in the 107--115 temps.  We are facing a shop revamp as we are going to install a lift.
 It's sorta a co-op effort several of us want to start/continue changing our own oil. We can pay for the lift in about 100 oil changes the cheapest car changes have gone up from 24.95 to 34.95  The 3/4 up trucks are more and a 10 qt Diesel is way more.

Sparky, I wish you all the best no matter what the project may be.
The cool thing is that there's always some action going on with what you do.

Exciting times and I always look forward to the latest post. :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:
