Budlight says plenty of sites open last week of April. How does that work for everyone?

Carl? Bigdave?

So doug spurred everyone to decide o. That last week of April per a mass text. Sounds like Mike, bullfight, Allan and Doug reserved there sites.  I have not and will not until I have a running and driving rail. I got the accy wire harness stripped and started rebuilding it over the weekend. If there are not sites available then I will figure it out.

understandable big dave !

I hope to fire scotts off this weekend. Thats if the coil pack shows in a usable condition. We will see if the radiator leaks at that time. Gutted the 11 relays and 2 fuse block box. I only need 4 relays and 6 fuses for that rail. Son in law and grandson helped Friday evening for a bit.  Removed all the undergrowth lights. Replaced the taillights with led straps and removed all 6 chrome bullet lights with led bars on order. May run it for a while as I am kind of wanting a full body rail with the overhaul this winter. May not be done till next fall.

I need scotts running so that I don't miss anymore trips.

I have fingers crossed to have the 427 ready for spring but who knows when Liberty gets my valves done and then I have to send head to Jesel for them to make the custom/correct geometry rockers for them. SHit,I'm probably still 6 months out  before I have all the parts. Hope this old Nascar engine holds up till then.

Thanks. So far, all is good. Really, it is enough engine but more is always better. :m

I have heard great comments about az transaxle but never personally used them. Shane is only 1.5 hrs away but he only works on them after his day job so takes prob twice as long.  You'll get it repaired when you can  :nw....... or maybe you'll find a 2d or hv24 used??!!  ;D.  One just never knows what will fill into your lap when you searching the net really hard  rofl
