Well---seems like we will be removing the Salt Slicks and installing the Ground Grippers tires if we are going to run this year.  If I can get it all worked out I will be running 23" rear tires to get the gearing more desirable for El M

Alex came by for 3 hours yesterday---reshuffled the shop 

Now on to a minor thrash for El M.  My oldest son, W T will be a rookie.  We have some things to change to get ready. Francis will be installing-- the clear panel in the car and bringing it up later in the week.  Sumner will be coming down after Labor day and helping with the instrumentation.

Sparky,
How about a picture of the old girl with her new canopy!

Well, now our biggest problem is to get our driver legal---Last year my oldest son W T, who lives in Texas,  joined BNI but he is not a club member -- I am a GG--I noticed they were not on the FAST TRACK  Memberships Clubs listed----  hopefully we can work all that out in time.

Correction:  Sumner will be here WED!

Francis and I installed the new canopy to day---it will go up and down---

but we had to remove all the instruments we had installed---they hit, hung up, snagged, ripped, most other things  oc

So tomorrow I will relocate most things----Francis and I relocated the Tach into the center of the steering wheel---I will have to relocated the GV shift --the oil pressure and water temp as well as the O2 guage Tue--Sum and I will fire and dial in Wed and Thursday!

Guys I feel so tech challenged ---- I haven't figured out how to down load and post Windows 10 yet

I can see the picts on the camera but I can't get them to the computer yet   :cry:

Sparky, you have just given me one more reason not to down load the "free" Windows 10 that Microsoft keeps offering me!  I think it is called "age inhibited".

I downloaded Windows 10 and tried it. I reverted to Windows 7 using their built-in feature. That Microsoft built a feature into W 10 so that you could go back to your old operating system within 30 days should tell you something.

My buddy Lee got into computing in 72 and he says that if Microsoft made cars they'd be delivering them without wheels and brakes. :roll:

Well Sum and I have had 2 good days and a thrash today---and Marty came by for the final load out but we are on the trailer for the 3rd time in the last 2 years and hopefully we get to run---we are pumped!!!!

Sir Francis should be here at 5:00 AM and then  we are "off to the races"  :-D
