Hard time

I've been a bit lazy working on the car lately since I've been having such a hard time finding the tires I want.

The BF Goodrich G Force Sport in 225/50-15 was supposed to be the perfect tire for my build.

But BF Goodrich has stopped manufacturing them with no specified date of starting back up. There is a huge backlog of orders for them so I doubt I'm going to be getting them any time soon.

If it comes down to it, I might just end up running some 215s or something which would suck.

Aside from that I have been piecing together my fuel system collecting parts from Summit racing, and doing a lot of research on fuel delivery configurations and fuel pumps and regulators.

Also, as many of you know, my clear coat went down super sloppy.

So I am fixing it.

Wet sanding the whole car using 800 and 1000 grit and then respraying with the correct gun settings. My pressure was way off. But I will have a post regarding the clear coat respray later.

Till then I am going to be installing brake lines, fuel lines, and then refinishing my crossmembers and moving toward painting and installing the suspension system.

Just gotta get some of that motivation sauce.
