    Just saw there was voting requested. DONE. Glad I was able to add a vote before the deadline.

    Jack, VA beach sounds wonderful about now.

    Thanks, all, for the votes.

    Yeah, Jack, I very much would like to show this car at Air & Auto 10 in October. I think some of the members of the First Settlers PCA would get a kick out of it. The stars may yet align.

    Spyder is on the road for sorting.

    Weird.

    I cranked the rear suspension up about half an inch and managed to leave the driveway without scraping the tail pipe. Then I put the car back in the garage so I can mess with the brakes: driver’s rear line hits the inner fenders so needs to be re-routed. I also need to bleed the system harder to get a higher pedal, and check to see if I need to shim one of the calipers to cure a rubbing pad.

    Hope to get that and a couple other minor things done by this weekend to do a bit more of a test drive.

    After that it’s oil leaks. I bent a couple pushrod tubes last time the engine was out, so they may be dripping. Something is under there…

    I posted a short test-drive vid yesterday.

    Very cool, Ed. Looks like it tracks straight, stops straight, sounds good. Sweet!
