We left our car last weekend with about half of the wiring installed and the transmission back out to fix second gear. So right away I set about wiring the front half of the car while Alex installed the trans and reassembled the suspension.

We grabbed our factory lights so that they could be wired to make the car road legal again.

Our race lights and bent bracket are coming off for now. We really only need them for 24hr races.

My quick and dirty gauge cluster needs to be modified a bit to see all the gauges through the steering wheel.

With everything back together, the car started right up. All the lights seem to work as they should. The only wiring left is a few interior accessories. The rest of the car needs a few tweaks, so the last thing we did was erase our old "to do" list and start a fresh one. The "LOOK AT RULES" item is there because none of us have actually looked at the 2018 rulebook to see if there are any relevant changes. One of us should really do that, Tom.

  • I hope that mysterious electrical problems will be behind you now.

    • So far, the fact that it's running is a significant improvement. We'll see if it keeps running.
