Re: 88gt4de Project ... Engines back in , Slow Progress 10/1

Postby 88gt4DE » Sun Oct 13, 2013 2:50 pm

So its been awile , progress has been slow. Sun glare was terrible that day and most the pictures are terrible. Engine is back in car and have been slowly throwing parts back at it. Hoping to turn the key before the end of the month for DMV inspection mid Nov ...

I would like to send out a few thanks to first my brother ( 97jza80 ) for allowing me to invade his garage for another 8 months , Dan ( LegacyofDan ) for finding and parting with a 165 head and Rob ( Rpz123isme ) for doing the machine work on the head and making repairs and upgrades to it. If you need cylinder head work done. Send it to him. Spend the money to ship it across the country like I did to have someone that knows those heads working on it. Just my 2 cents ... :wink:

Inspection up for me too , then pull all the cat and stupid crap back off for two years. Considering trying to tag it as a classic ... we will see. Word is no more emissions crap but mileage limits and something about only driving it to car shows. But really how they gonna know where I'm driving the car if I get pulled over anyway ... :shrug:

I was thinking the same way a year ago and was told the same as you about driving. Your semi right about how they are going to know? Every time I drive the car, it's always at a meet or car show anyway. I consider meeting with other Alltracker's a show.

Re: 88gt4de Project ... She's alive ... again :) 10/26/13

So , shes up and running once again. I managed to kill both front wheel bearings moving the car around. Really didnt move it around much so I'm kinda surprised. Replaced one this morning , I'll do other one next sat. DMV monday !!! Roughly 30 miles into testing .... So far , so good. not really many new pictures but I'll find something to throw up tomorrow or so. Between full time job , part time side work and this car , time to do anything has been tight .... :? Tired ... Until tomorrow.... :smokes:
