Thankya so much Tom...! It was MY pleasure meeting you and
Great folks -as expected! :-)
Now,... If I had "my druthers" I'd be out there RACING with you each and
every time. But ones life path is sometimes a very convoluted and
BUT,.... that said, I sure do HOPE to meet you again next year! Let's "do
it again " !
I'm STILL cleaning salt residue from Boogie Woogie. YET. No kidding.
Serious salt crud everywhere. You see I got caught in that Thursday
afternoon 40mph wind and rainstorm which of course was mixed with salt!
Ugh its everywhere. I am stripping the interior; door panels, rugs kick
panels etc, etc to clean it. It even "killed" my master electric on-off
switch, which is under the right rear of the car body! Deader than a
doorknob! Full of green crud. Don't know if its even "cleanable: or not.
Guess I'll find out!
Yesterday while cleaning and repainting front-end parts, I discovered a hole
in my left front turn signal lens that is dead center and 3/16" (smaller
than a pencil!) in diameter! Don't know when it happened but it
apparently was hit by something hard enough to punch it clean out! And, It
also took out the signal bulb as well. And now I found it now all full of
rust as well from the hole letting in the crud! Urg!!!
Mostly it's clean-up and preventative maintenance type stuff. Two full days
of it so far this weekend I did have to repair a cracked LF motor-mount
in Cheyenne Wyoming and re-thread the bolt hole to the next larger size for
it in the frame. Otherwise BW performed like "da champ" she is! :-) Not
counting the "new trailer blues" of course!
This next weekend, ( the TYRODS Old Timer's reunion over near "Bawston" )
-and the weekend following, ( the GOODGUYS East Coast Nationals in Rhinebeck
NY ) are two "important" east coast Hot Rod happenings that I want to drive
to so I've got to hurry up and get'er back in tip-top shape !
I've 8 -9 rolls of film from the salt to get developed this week too... I'
do believe they'll be some winners in there!
All for now, god bless.
Cheers,.. & signin' off, -it's your
pal,"Dirt Track Doug" in New Yawk
