Had some me time

Had some more "me time ".
Did some measurements to install tje strut rod brackets. Drilled holes and welded them onto the front end.
I maybe overkilled it with "spotwelds".
Last pic is to show off.

Beside its cold in my garage nowedays, I did some work on my frame jig so I could position the fastback properly at the A-pillar.
Used some old style Celette fixtures and altered them.
But first I had to remove the inner "weldseam" of the "traverse" where the Celette supports should slide into. After trying to grind it away , I used a chisel and hammered it away.
Now I need to do more adjustments to line up the car correctly.

Not skiing just sunbathing, it's off the coast of Africa and I can save some money ( more bits for the Stang) by turning the very expensive heating off!!

I'm still managing to take the car out for the odd short drive, I'm still trying to get my head around the AFR readings and reading up about "how lean is lean"
there seems to be different opinions on that.
The new Sanderson shorty headers have a "harsher / louder" sound compared to the long tube hookers I took off though the rest of the system is just the same?
It doesn't seem to have affected the performance at all and is possibly "sharper" and better to drive now.

From what I known is that during acceleration it has to be on the rich side and deceleration on the lean side.
When driving steady it should be around 14.7 (ideal)
When running lean , engine temp should rise rapidly and gets even higher in stop and go traffic.
And color of spark plug of course after a good run.
Enjoy your vacation !....and bring some warmth back to the north.
