- Each day brings HE’s coachcloser to hitting the streets. With the custom 1 piece visor now on you can get thefirstlooks at the finished look. Jose is doing a final wet sand and buff on the black… always with black the more attention you give it the better it looks JD’s older Electromotive direct port system like this one had a leak in the pressurizer crossover on his rail from 90 degree fittings. Seems the brass fitting was threaded in so tight is cracked the aluminum rails! Removing the rails to fix that the upper O ring seals on the injectors had 1 leaking…. of COURSE getting a set of discontinued Ford injector seals was a challenge. That plus the new holding tank and a Branscomb E brake system plus some other issues and the coach will come back into the big house for it’s new shoes (red line aluminum rims and Michelin tires)
Red line tires on “Rock the Alps” give JD the idea We’re also squeezing in John D. and his funked out dash AC. I’m not playing with it… everything new! Staying the night in his coach we fixed ourselves up with food and libation from Mama Mias
Hey remember a week or so ago I showed you pics of a 50 Plymouth business coup I built and sold in 1983…. well the guy was there …. still owned it.. the guy I sold it to so I got a chance to go take a looksee on what was still in it…… the 241 “Red Ram” Hemi with the push button Torque Flite trans was still in it
What a thrill to set my sore eyes on that awesome power plant I put together so many years ago
And he said it still runs! Wow, and he said “we need to rebuild it together! Sign me up! Dang.. how many cars have you run back into you built after 34 years! Just awesome!
Well, this big day is on… the guys are showing up… JD and his wife are leaving Pensacola probably about now….. lets all think good thoughts and remember each coach that leaves puts all the others closer to finish…. see you on the other side…….
