I also assembled the steering box, filled it up with gear oil, and currently testing it for leaks. I still need to do a final adjustment on it before it is ready to be put on the beam.
I assembled the pedal cluster, but it got late and I got frustrated. I should have stopped, I didn't. Anyway, it is together, but not as pretty as I'd like. I found another pedal cluster for $20 shipped to me and am going to go over it and try to put together a better example of pedals. I just can't let it slip by...
I also install the shift rod and lubed up it's mounting point.
And today, I had a guy come over to quote me a price for a 220v outlet. We'll see what he says.
I also started inventory for my parts to see what I have and what I need. I kept it just pan related for now as that's obviously my primary concern.

Yesterday I went to a "real" hardware store in order to find grease fittings for several parts on the car. These fittings aren't very typical and this store had a great selection. While I was there, I quickly realized that I had been transported back to the 1950's and this was an old tyme hardware store. It is a bit of a drive and a bit more expensive, but the selection and CUSTOMER SERVICE is the best. I'll be going back for sure.
Finally, after doing my inventory I placed my first parts order! $1420 credit card dollars later, I have enough parts coming to keep me busy for a while.
I go to training at the end of the month and mom visits for a few days, so progress may be slow but I'd rather have parts waiting for me than visa-versa. :)
