How is the driver winter weight reduction program coming along?
Will we have to increase the front weight bar to correct the balance ?
:D :lol: :mrgreen: :P


The good news,,the driver is now working on it. Winter apparently wasn't too friendly to Ol' Rapid :shock: :lol: :lol:

I know we usually use bird shot for the weight bar,,,how about looking around for some Eagle Shot up in the great white north for this season. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Vic,

Thanks for checking in. I have had long loving conversations with this car and we have an agreement not to have tire shake. So the problem is solved before I even leave the shop. :wink: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hey Rock, Please give me a call when you have time. I need to get the chassis re-certed for this year. It is out at Kinser's shop, but I might be able to have another couple of cars there for you to do at the same time.

Thanks,

I got ahold of Rock, he is going to get us handled later this week. 8)

In the mean time Greg and his boy John came up to get the trailer. They are taking it home to do some maintenance work to be ready for this season. While they have it they are doing some improvements as well. 8)

Here are some photos from the weekend

New blower is here. I switched over the drives, nozzles etc

Now I remember why I said I needed the trailer in February. It'll be an abbreviated version of what was planned but at least it won't burn to the ground this year. Jordan spent two days on the roof getting it all sealed up so it's dry inside now. John and Jordan have been getting all the inside aluminum off the walls and ceiling, cabinets are down too. I tried to salvage the electrical panel, but it was beyond use. New panel going in tomorrow, with all new breakers and wiring to the air compressor on Sunday. New switch for the goose neck jack is in and works very smooth now. All exterior 120 volt lights have been repaired, and re-mounted, all 120 volt outlets now work. New interior 12 volt lights are on the way..but hey, we have sound now thanks to John the radio wizard and Jordan the roof climber.
