Well the Arteest showed up today the back of the trailer is now ready for ART!!!!!! 

Al E. came by today and picked up a Triple nickel casting I had --he is going to run the 4 cyl at B'ville this year and wanted to GO back to OLD school with a 1956 head!!

I had a good afternoon and evening in the shop and now have the brake lines and Backing plates moved  and the 2.14 wide axle installed

Well when we get something besides primer on stuff I will post the "art"  and Marty has not brought the axle back with out the primer---I could post picts. of the stainless tubing that I harvested from the remains of the stainless kitchen stuff we harvested that is going into the cooling system.  But that is boring!! Did finish swapping the 2.14 gear rear axle and will get the cooling finished today if all goes well.

Well Andy and I had a 21/2 hours last night we got the cooling water tank remounted, and all of the new stainless tubing cut to length and almost installed.

  I have repurposed what was going to be the intercooler pump to one that we can off pump hot water into several 5 gal. jugs so that we will be able to change the cooling water and hot lap if we get an opportunity as Bill Jr. and Marty lisc. up. I should be able to post picts. of the new wheels and tires if all goes well today.

Andy and I had another productive night, got the fancy (no scrub radius) PODUNK wheels and tires on last night---installed on the axle that Marty modified---wahlla---they sit nice and straight vertically straight--

When the camera battery recharges we will have picts
