    Shifting gears a bit, I went out to the Summit Racing showroom in Arlington Texas today. I suppose I expected there to be a lot of stuff. What I did not expect was the quality of the layouts. You can view some of the arrangements in the photographs. It was a very enlightening experience. Want to buy a NOS Kit? They have one laid out on a display board with all the accessories. I would recommend anyone planning a build consider visiting one of the Summit Showrooms. Even if you have already begun or completed your build, you can take an idea and follow it through there. The employees don't ask you what the make and model of you car is when you ask them a question. I watched obviously senior technicians explaining to junior personnel the appropriate way to set up internals for NOS. They were at the level of detail for ring gaps. I was just amazed at what I found.

    Car is essentially finished except for the window track sweepers. they will be in next week. Fenders are done and the Hood is really nicely finished. Weather stripping is mostly done, lacking only the windows.

    121 Rod & Restoration working on the window seals for the doors. This will be the last thing except for final buffing.

    Not quite sure I understand how that is going to work?? Adding a angle piece on the inside of the door cutout, then there is some type of wiper that attaches??

    Two angle pieces one to each side of the slot then the whiskers glued to the vertical run on the angle. We will have more pictures this coming week. We chose the angle iron approach to avoid using rivets in the top. We felt the panel bond running the length of the slot on each side would give us more strength. I personally like the notion of a cap across the entire top of the door, this just seems to be less difficult.

    Never been to Summit, I do buy a lot of part from them including the NOS kit I bought back in 1989 and still have it on my other car. It's gone from a single stage one injector to a 2 stage 10 injector setup.
    Thanks for the pics.

    We did have to put stops on the window mechanism to keep them from going too far upwards. There are gaps at the front and end of the windows we haven't decided how were are going to close.

    Bill,

    Isn't it about time you were able to bring that girl home? They have had her for about 10 months now.

    Kory keeps coming up with good ideas. Too much rain around here to do anything with it. I might just go ahead and LS it.

    Fun little piece where I took the sequence of processes over about a 6 month period that displays the different states of the window seals in the process from start to finish

    So stopped by 121 Rod & Restoration today. Kory and Aaron have touched up and rebuffed the final areas. Abel has worked on alignment issues while Kory has touched up the grill. Car is really looking good. We decided not to bring it out of the shop, we are going to add the rest of the HVAC components and finish that effort..

    I have a confession. It may have been me that killed the site a couple of days ago. I figured I would upload all my pictures into an album/Gallery, then try to comment them so people doing searches could hopefully find useful photos. Well I was minding my own business uploading left and right and discovered I had 192,000 photos. The site filters stopped me at 520. I have since reduced them to a degree down to around 430 ish. I hope you new builders will find them useful, there is still a lot not covered. I may take down some of the glamour shots and replace them with things like pulling the engine etc.

    We are mocking the Air Conditioner and it should be finished soon. Couple more tweaks and its done, for now. Looking back, some of you that have only come in for the last year may not know that at one time I did a lot of work on the car myself. The guys at SNL Performance and 121 Rod & Restoration certainly did their share, especially in areas I could not have been successful. Travis Hooper, Christian Livingston, and Gary Gutierrez also pitched in and made significant contributions. Roy at Leo's upholstery in McKinney hit an absolute home run. Dan Ruth and Tim Whitteaker were always there with advice and very well constructed newly designed parts that turned the corner. Dave and the ladies and gentlemen at Factory Five also made a significant difference. Also got to give credit to all the members of the forum who shared time and knowledge, offered advices, and provided examples. Going through my pictures I found some older shots from the year or so I drove the completed, registered, and licensed Roadster version of this car on the street. I also turned a few wrenches on it to get it together and to keep it going. Three biggest efforts were rebuilding the SBC that lost a lifter early on; removing, repairing, and replacing the Ford 8.8 Rear end, and installing the adjustable 4 link with the double adjustable QA1's.
