    I started on the tub and doors this weekend. There was a lot more rust under the floor mat than expected...

    I also pulled the motor and transmission out a few weeks back. The motor is on the engine stand awaiting some attention while the transmission went back down to Mike Mayben's place for a tune-up.

    Looking forward to seeing the 2.0. If my wife sees the Lil Pink Scout, I will never hear the end of it. She was already wanting to change the color of my black '73. Keep up the great work!

    I made a little more progress between breaks in the weather.

    Thanks, I really appreciate it! This project seems to be never ending, every year I have to modify something, but when my wife smiles after she wins a race, it makes it all worth while.

    With less than two months to go until our season opener I have a lot to do yet. More pictures and updates very soon.

    Here is a breakdown of the points system used to classify our vehicles. We are at the top of our class with 6.5 points (Road & Trail) with no more room for modifications. View attachment tech sheet.pdf

    It was a busy weekend but I got the motor and tranny back in. I also converted the mopar distributor to GM HEI, mounted a GM alternator, and added a GM hydroboost from a one ton truck.

    Pink moves under it's own power now, I finished the wiring and installed the gauges. It left yesterday morning for the autobody shop where we will be fabricating a tilt front clip and prepping for paint.

    It's a homemade body mount, made from 2" polyurethane. I bought two foot of it on Ebay, took it Terryd's place and turned it on his lathe. Total cost with shipping was $69.

    I mounted the radiator and tranny cooler tonight, everything clears the new front clip. I still need to fab some supports to keep the radiator from flexing.

    Here is another angle. The tranny cooler moves with the tilt front.

    I added some struts to help with the weight of the tilt front and I finally mounted the hood. The fabrication is just about done and it's time to move on to body work.
