    2019 Epic Drive progress reports

    Hey everyone!,
    How are things going getting your ride ready for this years Epic Drive. Anyone beside Jacob doing a major upgrade or just minor things.

    Personally, I could leave tomorrow, but I just want to get some small things taken care of like:

    New door seals all around
    Extended length lug nuts
    Replace A/C Compressor
    Replace A/C Condenser\
    Replace radiator
    Find a good under body shield to improve air flow

    That's about it really.

    Anyone staying busy or is it too dang cold where you are?

    I have a rebuilt supercharger, 60 lb injectors and lowering springs to get installed before spring. I hope it happens. I also would like to get the front bumper painted and a couple of other areas repainted but mainly the front the bumper it really needs it.

    Looks like I'll probably be taking the 5-speed 97 again. I just had to get a new driveshaft for it because there was play in the slip yoke, which resulted in a nasty vibration at anything over 80mph, but that is now fixed. Also last night I found out I need new wiper blades, but other than that, it is ready to go.

    I'm still waiting on a bunch of parts to show up that I already paid for. There is no way my red car will make the epic drive! If I did have it done I wouldn't have enough time to troubleshoot it before the trip. Putting together a 90 five speed I acquired out of spare parts. Hopefully it is OK but I'm doing ALOT! I did a quick rebuild on a known good motor from a 95. Rod and main bearings oil pump head studs water pump. Putting a, late model blower and injectors on it. Dbl ic 75mm tb cold air intake a tune a wideband and boost Guage I have an assortment of pulleys.. Its a five speed with a rebuilt trans news spec clutch and flywheel. Already has exhaust done also has vacuum brake conversion decent recent paint cowl hood all new suspension and brakes. Swapping in a 3.27 diff. Should be a decent ride if I get it done
