Get the shop to complete my engine build and install it. Then proceed to break it in before taking it to Colorado for the 40th annual FCA national meet.

Well - a couple hours to go and we'll see what 2019 brings around. I hope to have a garage and a new motor this year. In that order, I suppose.

I moved in a Southerly direction last year and have had a few things to repair/overcome since then.

1) Oil leak at my oil pressure gauge tap where the sender used to live. Had to replace the ferrule on the line. Done.

2) Lost my (at the time, uninstalled) headlight doors in the move, so gonna have to acquire some replacements. Anybody have a good pair they'll part with reasonably?

3) Considering replacing chopped coil springs with a pair not quite so severely chopped. I like the lowered look I achieved, but not real content with the stiffer ride. Will probably not chop quite as severely next time.
